Happy New Year from HECAS! 2017 is, of course, getting off to a very cold start and we have got two more months of winter to get through. This means it is an ideal time to introduce FREEZBREAKER but, before you start getting too excited, this isn't a product to be used on humans!
Your heating system is your best friend during the winter months and, while it may be keeping you warm, it could be exposed to low temperatures itself. Such systems, including solar heating installations, rooftop plant rooms, loft and exposed pipework systems and outdoor boiler houses, need just as much protection as you do otherwise the water inside them could freeze. This means a broken system and a cold house!
Even systems that are not used during winter need this protection instead of draining down, as it is not possible to ensure that a system is completely empty. Partially drained systems become far more susceptible than usual to heavy corrosion and radiators suffer the worst, filling with sludge when the system is refilled and reactivated.
All of these potential problems are prevented with FREEZBREAKER-LT which protects the system using unique corrosion inhibitors that work in all kinds of system, including aluminium, brass, iron, copper, steel and plastic. With a low toxicity level and excellent heat transfer properties, it is perfect for systems where potable water may be mixed with that of the heating system. The formula also has a low flammability.
Using the product is simple and the correct quantity can be easily calculated based on the degree of protection that is required and the total capacity of the system to be treated. A guide is provided on the product page and more detailed instructions are supplied with the product itself.
If the system has already suffered from corrosion and sludge, it needs to be completely flushed out before application. To achieve this, we recommend using a power flushing unit such as the Kamco CLEARFLOW.
