“I’m looking forward to applying my knowledge to helping customers grow their business and working for a company that has been manufacturing the world’s best performing magnetic technologies for over 100 years.”

BoilerMag from Eclipse Magnetics combats the build-up of ferrous oxide or black sludge, and can therefore improve heating efficiency by up to 6%. It also avoids radiator cold spots, poor circulation, blocked pipes, excessive noise, frequent breakdowns and premature pump wear in the process.

With unique Dual Flow Technology and patented high-intensity magnetic core, Boilermag is a market leading means of removing black sludge. The innovative magnetic circuit design pioneered by Eclipse’s specialist magnet designers means that high performance system can never block.

Tony Swift, Eclipse Magnetics’ national sales manager – Heating Products, said: “We welcome Gavin to our BoilerMag team. His 12 years of experience in the sector will ensure that he is able to work with customers to build their sales within the magnetic filter category.”
