Aquabiome


   
Aquabiome - Bead Filter
Mechanical & Biological Filtration..

Its ability to support dense populations of nitrifying bacteria and its reliability and easy maintenance, makes Aquabiome especially suitable for high density recirculation systems.

Effective
Excellent Nitrification and Mechanical filtration

Efficient
Hydraulically efficient filter design, balanced slotted laterals to maximize water flow and filtration.

Durable
Corrosion resistant and UV stabilised for outdoor installation.

Air-Backwash
Air assisted hydraulic backwash, saving time and water.

Superior Quality
Aquabiome fibreglass filters embody the latest in fibreglass winding technology.

 

1.Water is pumped to the Multiport valve and diverted to the lower filter.

2. The inflowing water is then evenly dispersed through slotted laterals within the lower section of the filter.

3. As the water flows upwards through the Biofilter media, the contaminated water is subjected to mechanical and biological filtration.

Mechanical Filtration
Mechanical filtration physically removes solids from the pond by trapping solids between the crevices of the filter media.

Biological Filtration
Biological filtration is the most effective method of removing toxins (ammonia) and breaking it down into nitrites and then into nitrates which provide food to your aquatic plants (referred to as the Nitrogen Cycle). This is accomplished by using naturally occurring bacteria and giving it a place to live in the Biofilter media where it is exposed to large quantities of food and oxygen.

 

 

Maintenance
A Multiport valve is provided as standard equipment with features such as Backwash, Rinse, Recirculate, and more.

Aquabiome Filters can be backwashed hydraulically using water from your pond. Simply turn the multiport valve handle to backwash and your filter is hydraulically cleaned with water from your pond.

Air Assisted Backwash
To assist with backwashing, an air blower is provided. Its purpose is to agitate the Biofilter media prior to backwashing. Air is forced upwards through the filter’s laterals to break up the entire media bed and loosens the sediment trapped by the Biofilter media.

The addition of an air blower reduces the amount of time and water required for backwashing and improves biological filtration capacity.

A Typical Pond System
Most conventional pond filter systems may comprise of the following:

I. A suitable pre-filter. Either a chamber with baffle plates, or a vortex chamber.

II. Aquabiome filter to provide mechanical and biological filtration.

III. U.V. Sterilisation to sterilise and inhibit the growth of Algae and other undesired organic matter.

IV. Venturi or waterfall to provide aeration.
