Heating equipment manufacturer Inta has introduced its second-generation intaKlean magnetic filter.
Designed to combat contamination problems caused by rogue particles in fluid-based heating systems, the intaKlean 2 is the first of its kind to feature a double gauze filter, which actively captures and keeps hold of non-ferrous debris, as well as eliminating trapped air.
As fluid circulates around the filter body, non-ferrous foreign matter is caught and retained in the gauze, while the remaining ferrous debris is drawn to the centre of the filter and captured by the powerful neodymium magnet. The intaKlean 2’s full bore butterfly valves allow for convenient in-line installation without restricting water flow, and the magnet can be removed while the system is live for effortless cleaning. Its anti-blockage design guarantees continuous flow even if the filter has not been serviced.
Responding to feedback received from plumbers and installers about the original model, the intaKlean 2 features a host of developments over the first generation including a reduced overall footprint, making it one of the smallest on the market, a 360 degree fully-rotatable filter pot for flexible access, and a low profile drain valve making it easy to fit and service.
Managing director Stuart Gizzi, said: “We’re proud to introduce the intaKlean 2 to the market.
“We worked closely with plumbers and installers – the people who actually work with it – to see how we could make our original intaKlean better, and we identified the need for a stronger, more effective filter that is versatile and can be serviced with greater ease, and so we went back to the drawing board and developed the intaKlean 2.”
