EXTRA POWER, NON-ACID FLUSHING CHEMICAL FOR USE WITH SYSTEM CIRCULATOR PUMPS, OR WITH A POWER FLUSHING PUMP
FOR USE ON DOMESTIC OR COMMERCIAL SYSTEMS.
HYPER-FLUSH is the non-acid flushing liquid with extra solvency power to take debris into suspension for easy removal by power flushing. It penetrates, loosens and dissolves rust, sludge, corrosion and light scale deposits during normal operation of the system, without formation of particulate matter to cause blockages and damage pumps. HYPER-FLUSH is non-corrosive and works at a near neutral pH, enabling it to be used on older systems showing signs of severe neglect, or which may be in too poor a condition for use of Power Flush FX2 liquid.
HYPER-FLUSH should also be used on systems which have aluminium radiators, or boilers with aluminium heat exchangers. It may be used with all metals commonly used in heating systems and does not cause deterioration of non-metallic components.
HYPER-FLUSH can even loosen complete blockages and is therefore also an excellent pre-treatment for systems with radiators having no flow as a result of heavy sludge build up. There is no "gassing" during cleaning, and no need to bleed radiators during the process. Self neutralising and passivating properties remove the need for further flushing procedures after use, and metal surfaces are left clean and corrosion free.
The Benchmark Scheme aims to improve the standards of installation and commissioning of domestic heating and hot water systems in the UK and to encourage regular servicing to optimise safety, efficiency and performance. Installers are required to carry out installation, commissioning and servicing work in accordance with the Benchmark Code of Practice which is available from the Heating & Hot water Industry Council at www.centralheating.co.uk
One litre of HYPER-FLUSH (or 500ml of HYPER-FLUSH CONCENTRATE) is sufficient to treat a typical central heating system of 100 litres capacity (approx. 10/12 radiators). HYPER-FLUSH is best added to a heating system between two and fourteen days prior to power flushing, with normal operation of the heating system during this time.
HYPER-FLUSH should be added to the feed and expansion tank after isolating the water supply and draining off 15 litres (3 gallons) of water. Allow the system to refill. Alternatively, a SYSTEMSURE Injector may be used to inject HYPER-FLUSH directly into a radiator through the air bleed valve.
If pre-treatment is not possible, add HYPER-FLUSH to the system and allow to circulate for at least one hour before commencing power flushing.
With all radiator and zone valves wide open, use the CLEARFLOW pump to mobilise relatively loose debris and corrosion deposits, and then purge them from the system through the dump valve. Close the dump valve and restore circulation through the CLEARFLOW and the heating system.
Close radiator valves on all but one radiator, allowing full flow through this radiator for 5 minutes. Repeat for all other radiators and change CLEARFLOW pump to dumping mode. Continue dumping until waste water is absolutely clear.
Once waste water runs clear, power flushing is completed. There is no need to add NEUTRALISING CRYSTALS when using HYPER-FLUSH.
To prevent future corrosion of system, add SYSTEMSAFE-DM scale and corrosion inhibitor to CLEARFLOW tank and circulate through system for a further 2 minutes before disconnection. Use one litre per 100 litres system water content, or 1% dosage rate by volume.
