Poplar Housing and Regeneration Community Association (HARCA) owns and manages around 10,000 homes in East London.
It required a system to operate in one of its buildings – Carradale House in Poplar. Wilo offered to run its new particle separator system on a protracted trial to illustrate the benefits of the system and to address the issues the property had.
Wilo’s new Wilo-SiClean Comfort is a particle separator system that provides automated circulating water cleaning.
The system was installed in the basement plant room of the property and the discharge from the system runs to drain.
Over the period of the trial, the results showed huge improvement to the system circulating water – a large reduction in conductivity – 12% - and a reduction of the iron in the water samples taken – by a massive 75%. There was also ample evidence of the removal of the black magnetite sludge from the system.
