Fernox Power Cleaner F8 is an effective, citric acid-based cleaner designed to remove corrosion, scale and other debris in heavily contaminated, sludged central heating systems; to restore and maintain optimum efficiency and reduce the risk of breakdown. Fast-acting, this new formulation, heavy-duty, powerful cleaner includes a high concentration of key active ingredients, meaning just one, easy to use 500ml bottle can tackle even the dirtiest central heating systems in over 97% of UK homes.
Ideal for retrofit scenarios and boiler swap outs, when existing systems need to be thoroughly cleaned, Power Cleaner F8 can accelerate and aid the cleaning process. Suitable for use with manual, magnetic or powerflushing cleans alike, this high strength cleaner is non-foaming, which means installers require significantly less time on site to remove residual cleaner from the system than other competitor cleaners. Its pH neutral formulation also means that, despite its superior strength capability to take out sludge and scale from system water, no follow up neutraliser product is required.
Each 500ml bottle of Power Cleaner F8 includes a high concentration of key active ingredients, meaning that just one, convenient to use, 500ml bottle can treat central heating systems up to 130 litres (16 single radiators) or 250m2 of an underfloor heating system – making one bottle suitable for use in even larger systems.
Power Cleaner F8 is a powerful pH neutral cleaner with a non-toxic formula compatible with all metals and materials commonly used in central heating systems and is developed for use with Fernox market leading inhibitor products, ensuring the best results are achieved quickly.
Richard Crisp, Head of Chemistry at Fernox said: “We are constantly striving to make sure that our product range is comprehensive and offers installer the best choice of high performance, quality products so they are equipped with everything they need, across a range of jobs. We want to ensure that each type of system cleaning – including powerflushing, a methodology recommended by BS 7593:2019 – is even easier and faster for installers to complete using the new Power Cleaner F8. This pH neutral cleaner is a powerful and fast-acting chemical solution due to the inclusion of a neutralised citric acid in the formulation, which can be used on older, problem systems. Power Cleaner F8 sits alongside the universal Fernox Cleaner F3 (available in 265ml, 500ml and Express versions) for new and lightly sludged systems and DS40 Descaler and Cleaner, which is ideal for use against limescaled systems that require an acid based cleaner and neutraliser to restore efficiency.”
