TF1 Omega Filter
The nickel-plated, brass TF1 Omega Filter is small, smart and simple. It fits onto vertical and horizontal pipework at up to a 45-degree orientation and is simple to install with quality valves or slip socket connection.
- High capacity and compact design
- Easy to install – fits on horizontal and vertical pipework in both flow directions. The filter can operate at an angle of 45°
- Unique action, removes magnetic and non-magnetic contaminants from system water
- Smart, tough, forged brass construction (no hidden porosity) with nickel plating
- Unique manifold with double radial seals and multiple orientation capabilities
Powerful neodymium magnet assembly with threaded magnet cap
Engineered Brass Construction – The TF1 Omega Filter is constructed from a high strength engineering grade brass, suitable for heating and cooling system applications. Every filter is tested on the production line to ensure there are no leaks. 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.
Low pressure loss – The TF1 Omega Filter has been designed to ensure there is a minimal pressure head 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.
High-quality components – The TF1 Omega Filter utilises a range of high-quality component parts that ensure the filter offers the best possible performance. The magnet is made 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.
Application, Fitting & Dosing
Designed to be installed on domestic heating systems, on 22mm or 28mm pipework size. The filter can be easily fitted onto either horizontal or vertical pipework in both flow directions. The TF1 Omega Filter can be installed on vertical or horizontal pipework, in accordance with the flow direction indicated by the arrow on the manifold. The filter should be fitted on the return to the boiler, and can be installed at up to 45⁰ from the vertical position.
Package, Handling & Safety
As with all magnetic products, if you have an implanted cardiac device extra caution should always be taken when handling any magnetic filter.

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 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 for the filter to be disassembled.
