Magnetic filters provide protection at Sheffield hospital

Magnetic filters provide protection at Sheffield hospital

Northern General Hospital in Sheffield has significantly improved the efficiency of its new low-pressure hot water heating system by installing 30 BoilerMagXT units from Eclipse Magnetics.

BoilerMagXT’s ability to remove black iron oxide or magnetite from the system delivers efficiencies of around 6%, reducing CO2 emissions in the process, as well as eliminating blockages, wear and boiler breakdowns.

The estates department specified BoilerMagXT as part of its steam to low pressure hot water conversion scheme. Other energy-efficiency improvements on the 120 acre site include new gas condensing boilers, which are expected to increase efficiency by an additional 10-12%, compared to the outdated conventional boilers.

Magnetic filters were specified by the hospital for additional protection to the new plate heat exchangers.

“We had ongoing issues with our out-of-date heating system becoming clogged with sludge,” said a hospital spokesman.

“As well as replacing this with a modern condensing system, BoilerMagXT is a crucial element of maintaining optimum efficiency by removing contaminants and protecting what is a significant new asset investment from premature wear and breakdown.”
