Designed for installation in small or restricted access areas, this high performance sealed, in- line system filter is easy to install and fast and convenient to clean. There is no need to dismantle the unit or replace o’ rings during servicing, saving time on-site. Manufactured from high quality, nickel plated, brass, the TF1 Omega Filter uses Hydronic Particle Separation (HPS) technology and magnetic filtration to remove magnetic and non magnetic debris from the system. The quality and reliability of this award-winning filter is supported by a market- leading 25 year warranty.
The TF1 Omega Filter is constructed from a high strength engineering grade brass, suitable for heating and cooling system applications. The brass components are nickel-plated to increase durability and resistance, meaning the filter is compatible with a range of glycols and additives used in central heating systems.
The TF1 Omega Filter has been designed to ensure there is a minimal pressure loss, whilst also maintaining a high collection efficiency. The internal HPS, magnet assembly and area of low flow have all been engineered to allow the filter to capture a range of system contaminates, whilst ensuring this does not impact the rest of the heating system.
The TF1 Omega Filter utilises a range of high-quality component parts that ensure the filter offers the best possible performance. The magnet is manufactured using a premium grade of neodymium, enabling a high-efficiency capture rate, combined with the stainless-steel hydronic particle separator, which enables the continued and consistent filtration of a range of system contaminates.
Designed to be installed on domestic heating systems on the relevant pipework size. The TF1 Omega Filter can be easily fitted onto either horizontal or vertical pipework in both flow directions. The TF1 Omega Filter is designed to protect the boiler from the damaging effects of circulating corrosion debris, which has collected in the system as a result of a chemical reaction when water comes into contact with mixed metals used within a heating and cooling system. The TF1 Omega Filter should be fitted on the return to the boiler and can be installed at up to 45⁰ from the vertical position.

Operating Principle – Contaminated water enters the filter via the manifold, carrying a variety of system debris and particulate matter held in suspension. This debris, including ferrous impurities such as Magnetite, move through the manifold and into the main body of the filter.
Water is forced down towards the bottom of the filter due to the engineered flow characteristics created within the filter by the Hydronic Particle Separator (HPS). The HPS action helps to disrupt any dirt particles held in suspension by the water, as well as direct these particles towards an engineered area of low flow at the base of the filter.
The dynamic flow of the water within the filter also allows ferrous impurities to be captured by the high-powered magnet assembly.
To exit the filter, water must pass over the magnet sheath and around the HPS, then out of the manifold. In this way, system debris has difficulty escaping the unit, and is either trapped in the area of low flow, or captured by the powerful magnet, meaning clean water exits the filter.
Any dirt collected within the filter can then be discharged by removing the magnet from the sheath and opening the drain valve. This procedure is shown in the cleaning guide and does not require system shutdown or the filter to be disassembled.

No, the TF1 Omega Filter has been designed to ensure that even when it reaches a level of maximum collection, system water can still pass through the filter, short-circuiting the body, and flowing freely through the manifold.
The TF1 Omega Filter is a high performance, nickel plated, in-line system filter, which is designed for domestic heating systems.
It is produced with quality materials and components and has been manufactured using precision engineering. Combining the strength of a powerful Neodymium magnet with Hydronic Particle Separation technology, the TF1 Omega Filter offers a superior collection capacity for both magnetic and non-magnetic debris.
The TF1 Omega Filter out performs other filters of its size by collecting significant quantities of system contaminants, and competes with many larger filters thanks to the cleverly designed internal mechanisms of the filter.
The HPS technology improves the overall collection of the filter, as well as the performance of the Neodymium magnet.
