How to deal with dirt in your system water?

Most people will know that (circulating) water in a system after a while becomes dirty (contaminated), which is more or less seen as inevitable. But, nothing could be further from the truth. Even with the best system water, unpleasant effects such as corrosion and the resulting corrosion particles in the system cannot be completely prevented.

Did you know that air in your system water causes corrosion?

If these corrosion particles and other dirt aren’t removed in an effective and continuous process from your system water, problems can occur such as:

  • Thermostatic valves become jammed
  • Pipes will get blocked
  • Wear and tear of components within the system
  • Reduced efficiency of the system
  • Higher energy consumption

How to remove even the smallest particles from your system

Often, a filter is used in the system to remove the dirt, but this isn’t always the best solution. Filters get jammed and need to be cleaned and replaced regularly which results in extra (labour) costs.

Especially nowadays with systems becoming smaller and smaller, just like the volume of water in the system. This means that dirt has a relatively high, negative impact on the performance of the system.

Using filters to remove dirt isn’t the best solution, SpiroTrap is!

A good dirt separator ‘catches’ all dirt particles without blocking the flow through the system. With Spirotech solutions, even the smallest particles are captured during the operation, no bypass or valves are needed! Dirt is collected and can be drained easily.

The positioning of a dirt separator in your system

Dirt separators are preferably positioned just before the systemwater enters the heating or cooling unit (return) in your system, capturing all of the dirt before it gets into the components.
