On a heat pump install, when installing a magnetic filter. This is in place to protect the condenser on the heat pump. Which is like a plate heat exchanger on a boiler. So the magnetic filter should be installed on the return pipe to the air source heat pump?

I have no idea of the regulations on heat pumps (gas bod myself) but if a heating primary filter were installed the return would be the preferred position.
Generally for heat pumps they ask for Strainers rather than magnetic filters. Both is best. And yes would go on the primary return to the heat pump to protect the condenser.
