You’ve got to fit a system filter when you install a boiler to comply with industry standards. But, when you fit our new Intergas System Filter to any boiler in the Intergas range, we’ll add another two years to the warranty.

Developed in collaboration with Fernox, our System Filter is made from nickel-plated brass and stainless steel. This high-performance in-line system filter will not only optimise the energy efficiency and longevity of the whole central heating system, it will also make compliance with BS 7593:2019 and Part L of the Building Regulations even easier. To be eligible, you must fit the filter and boiler on the same date and in line with the Manufacturer’s Instructions, and both warranties must be registered with Intergas at the same time.

Our Intergas System Filter includes a 22mm spigot isolation valve (for the bottom connection) and Fernox’s unique Hydronic Particle Separation with magnetic filtration, which removes magnetic and non-magnetic system debris. It’s hassle free to install on vertical and horizontal pipework and, when it comes to cleaning, there’s no need to dismantle the filter, thanks to its encapsulated body, and there’s no top seal either, so no leaks. The filter comes with a 15-year warranty and, as it’s made entirely from metal, it’s also 100% recyclable.

The TF1 Omega flushing adapter, which is available separately, makes it easier to flush and clean the entire system from the filter point at full flow rate. The spigot valve works in conjunction with the boiler return valve to isolate the filter or, using just the spigot valve and boiler flow valve, you can easily drain the boiler down via the filter’s flushing/draining valve.

Speaking about the introduction of the new Intergas System Filter, John Lawton, Technical Product Manager at Intergas, said: “Taking a more holistic approach to installations is better for installers, customers and the environment. So, while our filter is undoubtedly good news, it’s essential to recognise the importance of maintaining the whole heating system. A high proportion of boilers that fail in the first year do so because of poor water quality. By initially chemically cleaning, flushing and treating the system to BS 7593:2019, and introducing regular testing and re-dosing, the efficiency and life expectancy of most domestic central heating systems can be significantly improved.”
