Fluids for Commercial & Domestic Heating Systems
Key Steps when considering the importance of fluids in your heating systems:
Cleansing & Protection
X300 System Cleaner is specifically designed for new central heating systems. It flushes out flux and installation debris from new indirect heating systems. X300 cleaner helps to maintain system efficiency and conserve fuel.
|Specifically designed for existing systems Sentinel X400 System Restorer is a non-acid treatment for cleaning older heating systems, restoring circulation to radiators and pipework. A ruthlessly efficient way to eliminate the build-up of magnetite sludge, X400 is the quick and easy way to eliminate cold spots and restore full heat emission. Helps to improve and maintain system efficiency and conserve fuel.|
Sentinel X200 boiler noise reducer is a unique, life-long system treatment for the elimination boiler noise.
Safe to use in all types of indirect central heating systems, X200 noise reducer will quickly pay for itself in reduced fuel usage.
Some boiler systems require protection against freezing as well as protection from scale formation and corrosion. Sentinel X5OO combines the market leading technologies available in X100 inhibitor with a non-toxic antifreeze in one simple to use product.
X500 provides protection against scale and corrosion in all types of indirect heating systems, including those containing aluminium components, whilst preventing freezing.
For best results, systems should be cleansed and flushed in accordance with BS7593:2006 new systems and those up to 6 months old with Sentinel X300, existing systems with Sentinel X400 or Sentinel X800 Jetflo.
X5OO should be dosed at a minimum of 20% of total system volume to give frost protection of -8C, a 30% solution will protect down to -13C.
Central Heating Inhibitor
Formulated as a multipurpose treatment to inhibit corrosion, scale, boiler noise and hydrogen gassing in all types of indirect heating systems including those containing aluminium components.
Sentinel X100 is suitable for use in all waters, both hard and soft. The formulation is completely non-toxic. 1 litre of Sentinel X100 is sufficient to treat a typical domestic system of up to 10 radiators.
Features and Benefits:
|We recommend regular use of the Sentinel X100 Test Kit for central heating systems containing Sentinel X100 Inhibitor as it is a versatile treatment intended to control the risk of corrosion and scaling. The Sentinel X100 Test Kit allows you to check that the dosage of Sentinel X100 inside the system is sufficient to provide protection.|
Sentinel SystemCheck is a water treatment analysis service which provides rapid confirmation to installers, engineers, homeowners and authorities that a central heating system has been correctly cleaned and then protected with Sentinel X100 Inhibitor. It can be used during the commissioning of a new system or an older system following the replacement of any components.
Sentinel R700 Sanitizer & Biocide
Improved and better performing R700 Sanitiser & Biocide from Sentinel
The new R700 Sanitiser & Biocide is a more stable better performing non-peroxide biocide giving the installer and end user greater peace of mind. Still supplied in 1 litre bottles and available from stock. The new formulation of R700 is still compatible with the existing R500C & R600 heat transfer fluids.
With the technical improvements Sentinel have made to the R700 a new test kit will be required to test the biocide levels in a system (the old test kit will not work with the new revised formulation of R700).

Normal boiler systems do not generally need to be sanitised with R700 because they operate at temperatures well above 60C and therefore there is a general pasteurisation effect. However, many biomass boilers do not run on a regular basis or they are so big that the temp in some parts of the system remains low, e.g. underfloor heating. - If you think this is the case then using R700 to sanitise is a wise precaution... if in doubt add R700!
Sentinel Senticlene 8500
