Flamco has launched its new RedProtect chemical tablet-based filtration system for domestic heating systems.
The RedProtect Filter creates 50% lower pressure loss than other water treatment filter units on the market, which results in an up to 8% reduction in energy consumption of the system’s circulation pump.
The range consists of:
- A RedProtect Inhibitor (RP1), which exceeds the performance criteria required by the BuildCert Chemical Inhibitor Approval Scheme (CIAS) – RP1 offered 600% greater protection for aluminium and 360% for mild steel.
- A RedProtect Cleaner (RP2), which is a concentrated universal cleaning agent in tablet form. RP2 is capable of solubilising installations greases and debris, as well as mobilising older, more established magnetic and non-magnetic system debris. This is sold with RP1.
- The RedProtect Filter, which is a side stream device that removes both magnetic and non-magnetic debris from heating and cooling systems. The RedProtect Filter creates 50% lower pressure loss than other units on the market, which results in an up to 8% reduction in energy consumption of the system’s circulation pump.
- A full set which comprises the Inhibitor (RP1), the Cleaner (RP2) and the Filter.
The use of RedProtect chemicals offers the heating industry an opportunity to reduce the amount of plastic waste generated after use of the chemical. Compared to traditional liquid domestic heating chemicals, the RedProtect system offers approximately an 84% reduction in plastic packaging content when compared to a traditional one litre chemical jerrycan. Of the 12.9 g of plastic in the product, all 100% is recyclable.
As a concentrated range, Flamco is able to minimise the dimensions and weight of the products, greatly reducing its Carbon footprint. In addition, as RedProtect is a compact product to transport and store.
John Lynch, Sales Manager – Domestic for Flamco, commented: “We’re proud to be able to launch a new water treatment system that offers a range of genuine benefits over the existing options that installers and specifiers have been using to date
“From the reduced energy consumption of the circulating pump, to the simplicity of the system, the cleanliness, the reduced weight and the significant environmental benefits, RedProtect is a winner from every angle.”
The RedProtect product greatly exceeds the performance criteria as set by the BuildCert Approval Scheme (CIAS) and has the full endorsement of the Energy Saving Trust for the effectiveness of RP1 Corrosion Inhibitor in maintaining system efficiency. The product range is supported by a full Research and Development and Analytical laboratory.
