elector XS5

Corrosion-protection device for heating systems up to 0.5 m3 system volume

The corrosion-protection device elector XS5 is suitable for use in central heating systems or similar closed water systems with a water volume up to 0.5 m3.

By combination of proven technologies in one appliance the elector XS5 is an ideal safety device of central heating systems for water side corrosion without the addition of chemical corrosion inhibitors.

Main function of the elector XS5 is an electrochemical water-treatment, which results in an increase of the pH-value, in a constant oxygen consumption and in a clarification of the system water. A cyclonic water flow and separation plates installed inside of the elector enhance the separation of impurities and the venting of the heating system by an air-vent. In addition, a strong magnetic filter rod of rare-earth provides the effective removal of magnetic particles from the heating water.

In conclusion the usage of an elector XS5 means:

  • Separation of circulating impurities from the system water by a cyclone effect and separation plates
  • Separation of magnetic particles by a strong magnetic filter rod
  • Clean and clear system water
  • Reduced conductivity of the heating water
  • Stable pH >8.3
  • Constant oxygen consumption und deaeration, resulting in an decrease of the oxygen content in the entire system
  • Protection of the metals in the system by a water quality which supports the formation of natural protective layers and passivation (corrosion protection)

The electrochemical water treatment is a well known method for an eco-logical corrosion protection in central heating systems and is a recommended method for refurbishment and protection of central heating systems in case of water containing oxygen resulting in corrosion. (see Swiss guidline SWKI). The increase of the pH-value by electrochemically formed hydroxide is state of the art technology and a safe way to operate a central heating in combination with demineralised water in a low-salt operation style according to VDI 2035.

The elector heating water conditioner offer a proven corrosion protection for maintaining the central heating and are an ideal safety device especially for older heating systems after flushing, for example with the cleaning and dispersing agent OXILIN-P20 for protection from the formation of new sludge.
