The two new products are part of ADEY’s Best Practice® approach to prolonging the life and efficiency of hydronic heating systems.

ADEY, a U.K- based company whose pioneering MagnaClean CMX® range was recently rolled out in the United States and Canada, is introducing a line of innovative, concentrated system treatment formulas, designed to clean and protect older hydronic heating systems and retrofit installs. MC5™ Cleaner and MC40+™ De-scaler serve different purposes, but both were created to combat a frequently overlooked enemy of untreated hydronic heating systems – black sludge.

The MC40+ Hydronic Heating System Cleaner & De-scaler is a high-strength powdered chemical, specially designed to restore existing boiler systems by removing lime-scale deposits, calcium and magnetite. Rapid-performing MC40+ delivers an advanced clean, with a highly concentrated formula, in as little as one hour. It even comes with neutralizer packets to provide extra peace of mind if there is concern over residues being left in the system.

The second, MC5 Hydronic RAPIDFLUSH System Cleaner, is a high-performance, advanced-strength product, designed to work with ADEY’s award-winning MagnaCleanse® flushing unit. Together, they effectively remove sludge, debris, and scale while delivering exceptional cleaning results quickly.

Key features summary

MC40+:

  • Specifically designed to remove heavy lime-scale and calcium deposits from older systems with known water-quality issues or plugged components, such as heat exchangers.
  • Preferred option to clean and drain the system quickly.
  • Faster-acting, with a working time range of one to four hours.
  • Residential only – treats 33 gallons.

MC5:

  • Designed for flushing; works best with ADEY’s MagnaCleanse flushing unit.
  • Faster-acting than the MC3+® but provides more time than the MC40+. Whether old or new, if the system is to be flushed on the same day that it is cleaned, this is the preferred cleaner option.
  • Working time range: from a minimum of 1 hour to a maximum of 7 days.
  • Residential size only, treating 26 gallons.

An industry leader in innovative plumbing and hydronic technology, Caleffi North America has expanded their product offering with the 128 Series union Y-strainers that are ideally suited for use in hot water recirculation or hydronic systems.  Constructed of DZR low-lead brass bodies, the strainers are in stock and available for order in North America.

The 128 Series Y-strainer has dual union connections for ½”, ¾” and 1” pipe sizes and tailpiece connections in sweat, NPT, press, F1960 PEX expansion and F1807 PEX crimp.  The Y-strainer comes with factory-installed integral PT ports that allow quick verification of pressure drop across the strainer.  The easy to remove strainer cap includes a plug for installation of a field-provided blowdown valve.

Enjoy fast and easy service flexibility by combining the strainer with Caleffi 290030 isolation ball valves.  The strainer pairs up nicely with the Caleffi 128 Series FlowCal™ and FlowCal+™ balancing valves.

An industry leader in hydronic and plumbing balancing technology, Caleffi North America has expanded their product offering with a Y-pattern dynamic balancing valve. The new 128 FlowCal™ Series valves with DZR low-lead brass bodies are now in stock and available for order in North America. This valve series was developed to make flushing, commissioning, cleaning and balancing easy with a cartridge that can be temporarily removed while the circuit is flushed. Factory-installed pressure temperature ports allow for quick flow verification, all in a compact design.

The 128 is functionally similar to the popular 127 Series, but with an easy access port for servicing or changing the flow control cartridge without removing the valve body from the piping. The 128 uses the same flow cartridges as the 127 Series (0.35 GPM to 10 GPM flow control), has dual union connections, has the same pipe sizes and tailpiece connection types (sweat, NPT, press, PEX expansion and PEX crimp).

Used in plumbing applications, the FlowCal+ models have an inlet check valve to prevent reverse flow and an optional outlet temperature gauge for local indication. The easy to swap, dynamic flow cartridges maintain a specified flow rate, with no adjustments or differential pressure charts required to set up. Patented anti-scale low noise polymer cartridges are utilized for silent operation.

The first of its kind in North America, Uponor previewed an exciting new innovation at the 2022 ASPE Convention & Expo — the AquaPort™. Ideal in multifamily or hospitality low-rise, mid-rise, or high-rise applications, the AquaPort is a self-contained unit that converts a building’s hydronic heating supply to on-demand domestic hot water.

This solution eliminates centralized domestic hot water (DHW) and recirculation piping in a structure to provide numerous benefits, including energy and water savings, improved water quality, installation efficiencies, and reduced maintenance.

Compared to traditional pipe-routing methods, incorporating AquaPorts can reduce hot-water energy use by up to 35%, eliminate up to 40% of unnecessary piping, and remove more than 50% of the total DHW volume in a building for improved system performance, efficiencies, and hygiene.

The innovative and simplified design and installation provides efficiencies for installing contractors and facilities management to help keep projects on schedule, within budget, and running smoothly. It removes gas and electrical supply lines and venting in each dwelling unit to save on both short-term and long-term expenses, and it eliminates DHW supply and return piping for fewer piping supports, fire penetrations, insulation, and accessories required in a building.

The compact, in-wall design is only 25.6″ (650 mm) tall by 14.5″ (368 mm) wide and 5.4″ (137 mm) deep to maximize overall square footage. Additionally, the AquaPort is extremely lightweight at 47 lbs. (21.3 kg) for the 100K BTU/hr. version and 57 lbs. (25.9 kg) for the 180K BTU/hr. version, which makes it easy for one person to maneuver and install.

“Uponor is striving to innovate tomorrow’s buildings with high-performing solutions like the AquaPort to save water, minimize energy use, reduce risk, and eliminate waste,” says Aaron Stotko, director, Segment Marketing, at Uponor. “We anticipate the AquaPort will revolutionize hydronic heating and domestic water design to elevate building construction to a new standard.”
