Plumbing students train with ADEY at the Octillion Training Centre

Wednesday 12 April 2023

On 22nd March, Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC) level 2 plumbing students enjoyed a hands-on training experience day with ADEY, the world’s first magnetic boiler filter company. ADEY is based in the Octillion Training Centre, Uxbridge.

ADEY’s mission is to prolong the world’s boilers by protecting the world’s heating from the damaging effects of poor water quality.

With the recent growing media attention surrounding net zero and carbon emissions, the students were invited to attend a training session event with ADEY at the Octillion Training Centre.

At the training centre, students were given the opportunity to see how ADEY’s water treatment solutions (magnetic filters) are used by thousands of heating engineers to help customers save money on their energy bills and protect their boilers from breaking down and reducing carbon emissions from homes and buildings.

ADEY have recently been mentioned in the Houses of Parliament by MP Siobhan Baillie speaking in the Household Energy Efficiency Measures debate, Siobhan asked the government to consider advising households on technology like that developed by ADEY to help with ever increasing energy bill costs.

The students had a great day learning a lot from ADEY’s team and the company’s research into the effects poor water quality has on our heating systems.

Raj Johal, Assistant Head of Construction and Engineering at RuTC was delighted by how much the students enjoyed the trip, saying “The students learnt so much, ADEY is a world leader in water treatment products and there is a huge chance that in their careers they will come across ADEY products.

“In this economic climate, it is important for students to learn how to protect and maintain heating systems as opposed to replacing them, this is the way the industry is heading and it’s vital our students are up to date with industry developments. A huge thank you to ADEY for having us.”
