Fernox has been awarded the ‘Domestic Heating Product of the Year – Components’ for its Sigma TF1 HP Filter at the H&V News Awards 2023.

The H&V News Awards brings together the entire HVAC supply chain, including manufacturers, contractors, consultants and installers – and their customers to reward and celebrate the very best in products, people, businesses and projects across the building services sector.

This year’s event, held at London’s Hilton Metropole Hotel, saw the Fernox TF1 Sigma HP Filter, win the Domestic Heating Product of the Year award, which is presented for the product that demonstrates genuine innovation or a novel application of existing technology to new markets.

As the first of its kind on the market, the Fernox TF1 Sigma HP Filter is an innovative solution specifically designed to protect air and ground source heat pumps from debris and contaminants. Central to its outstanding performance is innovative flow and filtration technology to capture magnetic and non-magnetic particles, including magnetite, hematite and scale as well as bacterial slimes, even at the high flow rates of a heat pump system. This reduces the risk of blockages, corrosion and damage to the heat pump components and improves the efficiency and performance of the system while reducing fuel wastage.

On winning the award Anna Tarbuck, Director, Research & Product Technologies at Fernox said, “We are thrilled to receive this prestigious award. For 60 years, we have led the field in water treatment chemical products, system filters, plumbing consumables and diagnostic testing services. This win is a testament to our ongoing commitment to research and development programmes that have driven continual product innovation, such as our heat pump filter, which joins a growing lineup of solutions for the renewables sector.”
