Side Stream Filtration

What is an X-POT?

The X-POT is an award-winning, patented side stream filter that maintains systems in accordance with BSRIA BG 29/2021 and BG50/2021. Highly specified since 2013, X-POTs have multiple benefits such as:

  • Saving plantroom space with multi-functional design.
  • Improving system life expectancy and saving on capital expenditures.
  • Enhancing system water quality leading to increased efficiency, significant energy savings and less operating expenses.
The X-POT combines most current system filtration units into one easy install, easy-service, BSRIA acknowledged water conditioning product.

Why do you need side stream filtration on a closed loop system?

Water is the main means of closed system temperature distribution. It affects every single piece of equipment and every single person in the spaces that you manage.

Wherever there is closed loop system water four problems will occur: scale formation, corrosion, fouling and microbial growth.

Limescale deposits can clog up your heating or cooling system. Biofilm sludge or particles of rust and scale can also cause blockages and cold spots in pipes and radiators. All of this leads to reduced efficiency and high fuel bills. It also means extra stress on pumps, heat exchangers, radiators and sensors causing the risk of breakdown and inevitable expensive repairs.

Side stream filtration and a system water programme helps prevent all these issues. Filters reduce suspended solids and debris in the system water, which leads to less fouling. Decreasing suspended solids can also help reduce biological growth in the system because suspended solids are a good source of food for microbiological organisms. Decreasing biological growth in turn helps to reduce microbiologically influenced corrosion as well as scale formation.

If left untreated, dirty system water can increase your energy usage by over 10%.
