Scale Reducers

In areas where mains water hardness goes beyond 200ppm, Part L schedule 1 of the Building Regulations, which states that provision must be made to treat the feed water to water heaters and hot water circuit of combination boilers to reduce the rate of limescale accumulation and the subsequent decline in energy efficiency.

ADEY offers the ideal solution with either the ElectroScale, which prevents limescale build-up in homes and commercial properties, or the MagnaScale which protects against limescale build-up in individual appliances.

ElectroScale® compression scale reducer 22mm

Approved electrolytic limescale prevention

ElectroScale® has been designed to prevent limescale build-up in homes and small commercial properties.

The product is a non-polluting electrolytic water conditioner. The electrolytic cell alters the crystal structure of the limescale as it passes through making it less likely to stick to pipes or other surfaces. A ‘fit and forget’ solution, ElectroScale does not require an electrical power supply.

Installation meets the requirement in Part L of the Building Regulations for provision to be made to treat the feed water to water heaters and hot water circuit of combination boilers to reduce the rate of limescale accumulation.

  • Immediate long-term limescale protection
  • WRAS approved
  • Whole house protection
  • Designed to last ten years
  • No running costs
  • No mains power supply required
  • Maintenance free
  • Part L Building Regulation compliance
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Energy savings
  • Made in the UK

Technical Specification

Connection: 22mm copper compression to BS EN 1254-2

Material: External copper body with internal zinc anode

Maximum working temperature: Cold feed only

Minimum working temperature: 1°C

Maximum working pressure: 10 bar at 20°C

Length: 197mm

Diameter: 37mm

Weight: 715g

Pressure drop at 36.0 l/min = 80 mbar

Best Practice

To achieve the best level of protection, install ElectroScale on the incoming water supply after the water meter and primary filter units (if installed). This ensures the whole property is protected. ElectroScale can be installed on both horizontal and vertical pipework.

Note: Ensure ElectroScale is fitted at least one metre away from boiler.

Installation

1. Turn-off water supply.

2. Drain the system.

3. Cut-out 152mm section of pipe.

4. Install ElectroScale onto the pipework.

5. Tighten both compression nuts.

6. Reconnect water supply and check for leaks.

Important

To maintain earth continuity in accordance with current IEE regulations, when required a suitable earth bonding cable should be fitted to the pipework to bypass the product.

Refer to NICEIC 17th edition for more information.

MagnaScale®

Approved magnetic limescale prevention

Highly efficient MagnaScale from ADEY, the industry leader in magnetic filtration and water treatment, is designed to protect against limescale build-up in individual appliances.

Installation meets Part L schedule 1 of the Building Regulations, which states that provision must be made to treat the feed water to water heaters and hot water circuit of combination boilers to reduce the rate of limescale accumulation.

MagnaScale protects individual appliances where limescale would otherwise build-up on heating elements in domestic appliances making them less efficient and shorten their operational life.

  • Available in 15mm compression
  • Immediate long-term limescale protection
  • WRAS approved
  • Designed to last ten years
  • No running costs and maintenance free
  • Part L Building Regulation compliance
  • Easy installation – compression slip socket design
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Energy savings

Technical Specification

Connection: 15mm compression

Material: Copper tube to BS EN 12449

Maximum working temperature: 65°C

Minimum working temperature: 1°C

Maximum working pressure: 12 bar at 20°C 6 bar at 65°C

Compression body length: 145mm

Diameter: 35mm

MagnaScale 15mm Compression ΔP at 25.0 l/min = 120 mbar

Installation

MagnaScale has been designed to protect against limescale build-up in individual appliances. To achieve the best level of protection, install as close to the appliance as possible, without exceeding maximum operating temperature. MagnaScale can be installed on both horizontal and vertical pipe work.

The slip socket design on the MagnaScale compression product makes it easy for retro-fit installations.

1. Turn-off water supply.

2. Cut-out 120mm of pipe.

3. Install using the slip socket, which is the connection opposite the radial groove.

4. Tighten both compression nuts.

5. Reconnect water supply and check for leaks.

Important

To maintain earth continuity in accordance with current IEE regulations, when required a suitable earth bonding cable should be fitted to the pipework to bypass the product.
