Great Chemicals Come in Small Packages

Delivering lifetime protection from corrosion and limescale in commercial heating and cooling systems is now easier, faster and more efficient thanks to Sentinel Commercial’s new ‘Triple Power’ water treatment chemicals.

Delivering lifetime protection from corrosion and limescale in commercial heating and cooling systems is now easier, faster and more efficient thanks to Sentinel Commercial’s new ‘Triple Power’ water treatment chemicals.


Able to dose systems over three times larger compared to the previous award-winning formulations, Sentinel’s Triple Power X100 Inhibitor, X300 Cleaner (for new systems), and X400 Cleaner (for older systems) chemicals offer market-leading performance, with 1 litre treating approximately 20% more system volume than the next best competitor product.


The new Triple Power Range comprises a new 5 litre drum, which treats a system volume of 1,667 litres, a 10 litre drum, which treats 3,333 litres, and a 20 litre drum, which treats 6,666 litres. By comparison, the previous formulations were available in drum sizes of 10 and 20 litres and treated system volumes of 1,000 and 2,000 litres respectively.


“By cleaning or protecting systems up to three times bigger, the new Triple Power chemicals give installers and service engineers the option to use a smaller sized drum for the same job,” explained Chris Shelton, Sales Director for Sentinel Commercial. “For example, an engineer that would formerly have used a 10 litre drum to treat a system will now be able clean or protect an even bigger system using just a 5 litre drum of a Triple Power chemical – that’s packaging half the size and weight than before.”


Using smaller or fewer drums for bigger jobs offers a number of practical, cost-saving and environmental advantages, including easier storage, transportation, handling and dosing, in addition to less waste.


“At Sentinel Commercial, we’re always looking at ways to advance and improve our products and services, even when they are already the very best in the market. Instead, we’re committed to making the best better, and making the water treatment process more efficient, effective and simple,” explained Chris Shelton, Sales Director of Sentinel Commercial.


The Triple Power chemicals are a crucial part of Sentinel’s best practice system of ‘clean, protect, maintain’, an approach that is designed to deliver lifetime protection from corrosion and limescale, and avoid costly and disruptive issues such as premature parts replacements and breakdowns.


In this simple best practice system, cleaning removes contaminants, protection prevents corrosion and limescale in clean systems, and maintenance ensures on-going protection. Practically speaking, a contractor would use a Triple Power Sentinel Commercial X300 Cleaner to remove installation debris, flux residue and greases from a new system or Sentinel Commercial X400 Cleaner to remove black oxide magnetite and other corrosion debris in older systems, and Sentinel Commercial X100 Inhibitor to protect the system. Maintenance involves the regular use of Sentinel SystemCheck, a water treatment analysis kit and service that provides a prompt and independent report of water condition, including confirmation that a system has been correctly cleaned and protected with Sentinel X100 Inhibitor. It also includes the implementation of corrective action, if required.


Sentinel Commercial’s Triple Power chemicals will be available in early 2017.
