As its contribution to an appeal to local installers and manufacturers to replace the failing heating system at Pheasey Community Hub in Walsall, Adey donated a MagnaClean DualXP magnetic filter and premium-quality MC+ chemicals. They are designed to work together and will ensure that the three new Viessmann boilers and associated pipework are protected from the damaging effects of black iron-oxide sludge and corrosion between services.

Shaun Jarvis, contract supervisor at Dodd Group (Midlands) — the contractor responsible for carrying out the installation — said, ‘We were determined to prioritise proper protection for the new system. We strongly felt that the pipework was so old it would be detrimental to install new boilers onto an old system, possibly filled with sludge, which could potentially put them at risk. Installing the filters would avoid the centre facing similar problems in the future.’

Mike Green, Adey’s area sales manager for commercial north, said, ‘When we heard about the centre’s appeal, we were keen to help. Supporting local communities is a huge priority for Adey, especially when vulnerable individuals may be at risk from cold conditions. We’re sure that the community will see a marked improvement in the comfort of the building, and will see a big difference in their ongoing heating and maintenance costs.’
