Protect Heating Systems More Than Three Times Bigger – For Less
Posted on Thursday 30 November 2017
Sentinel Commercial’s boiler manufacturer endorsed water treatment chemicals now have more than triple the power when it comes to the protection of commercial heating systems, with each drum able to dose systems over three times larger. The new ‘Triple Power’ formulations of Sentinel X100 Inhibitor, X300 Cleaner (for new systems), and X400 Cleaner (for older systems) mean smaller or fewer drums are required for bigger jobs, a development which saves significant costs, waste and storage space, and makes for easier transportation, handling and dosing. Furthermore, the lifetime protection chemicals beat all other commercial water treatment chemicals on the market when it comes to volume of system treatment, and can be used in conjunction with all brands of dosing pots and filters, providing reliability, flexibility and value for money.
The new Triple Power chemicals are available in 10 and 20 litre drums, and a newly introduced 5 litre drum. As an example of the benefits offered by the new range, an engineer who would previously have used a 10 litre drum to dose a 1,000 litre system can instead pick up a 5 litre drum to treat a system up to 1,667 litres – that’s a system which is 66% larger, treated by a drum half the size and weight.
As for the larger drums, Chris Shelton, Sales Director at Sentinel Commercial, explains:
“The 10 and 20 litre drums might be the same size as before, but with a more concentrated dosage rate the contents provide much greater value to the customer. A Triple Power chemical 10 litre drum treats a system volume of 3,333 litres compared with 1,000 litres, while a 20 litre drum now doses a 6,666 litre system instead of a 2,000 litre system.”
“It’s a significant enhancement to a line of already market-leading, commercial boiler manufacturer endorsed water treatment products – the latter of which is a key consideration for warranties and on-going maintenance. Sentinel X100 Inhibitor, and our X300 and X400 cleaning chemicals have long been favoured by installers, contractors and commercial water treatment specialists dedicated to delivering best practice system cleaning and protection services; we’re proud to now offer our customers an even better range of chemicals that will make their jobs easier, faster and more efficient.”
Additional benefits of using Sentinel Commercial’s Triple Power chemicals include full technical support and resources from Sentinel Commercial, and the option to use SystemCheck, a service from Sentinel Commercial that provides prompt and independent confirmation (and therefore traceability) of correct system cleaning and inhibitor protection.
When used as part of a best practice system of ‘clean, protect, maintain’, Sentinel Commercial’s Triple Power chemicals can deliver lifetime protection from harmful corrosion and limescale-related issues in heating systems. Briefly, best practice can be described as the correct use of suitable cleaning products (X300 or X400) for the thorough removal of debris in circulating water, the dosing of sufficient boiler manufacturer approved inhibitor (X100), and regular checking of inhibitor levels.
Best practice water treatment is crucial to long-term system health. In the absence of best practice, commercial heating systems are vulnerable to corrosion and limescale (the latter in hard water areas), with corrosion being the number one cause of heating system breakdown. These harmful phenomena can also lead to premature repairs and parts replacements, increased energy consumption, and poor heat output, to name but a few problems.
Sentinel Commercial’s Triple Power chemicals are widely available nationwide through commercial plumbing and building merchants.
