​ WILO’S NEW HEATING SYSTEM CLEANING PRODUCT DOES THE BIZ FOR POPLAR HARCA

Latest News Thu, Sep 26, 2019 9:02 AM


Wilo has provided a solution for a London-based social housing provider, that was experiencing issues because of poor heating system circulating water quality.

Poplar Housing and Regeneration Community Association (HARCA) owns and manages around 10,000 homes in East London. It recognises the importance of clean water in heating systems to ensure that they operate without problems for their tenants and leaseholders. It’s vital that particularly with high rise developments, there is virtually no debris circulating in the heating systems and any debris there is, is removed as quickly as possible to avoid damage to the system components. In addition, removal of air and micro-bubbles from the system will also ensure the system operates smoothly.

It required a system to operate in one of its buildings – Carradale House in Poplar. The property has four Potterton NXR 3 280kW boilers. Wilo offered to run its new particle separator system on a protracted trial to illustrate the benefits of the system and to address the issues the property had. The main issues were mechanical seal failures on pumps and poorly made up joints during the installation of the system. Leaks were causing the system to introduce new clean water to the system, diluting the inhibitor, reducing its effectiveness and seeing debris accumulating in the system.


Wilo’s new Wilo-SiClean Comfort is a particle separator system that provides automated circulating water cleaning. The circulating water is set into centrifugal motion so the particles of debris, both magnetic and non-magnetic, can rotate downwards and collect in the desludging tank. The cyclone created in the separator combined with the vortex effect, leads to venting of the fluid and supports the degassing process. Magnetic particles are removed by magnetophoresis.

Full details of the new equipment can be found on www.wilo.co.uk.
