Correct Deaeration & Dirt Separation is essential to achieve longevity of system components, reduce maintenance costs and achieve optimum efficiency. The course explains why Henry's Law is responsible for the problem 'circulating microbubbles', why strainers cannot remove the microscopic dirt particles that cause the most damage to system components and why traditional methods of using chemicals are often ineffective against the ingress of air and dirt. Water is the cheapest component of the system yet when its quality is ignored will cause the most damage and incur the greatest expense.
