first saw this beltfilter in operation all our team were more
than just impressed, we were excited about a fully automated
who have never seen beltfilters in operation, they act as a
polisher that `goes not just one step but several steps beyond
truly the first affordable professional beltfilter on the
market. With its unique set up it provides a stunningly new
standard in filtration for the domestic Koi keeper.
professional filter, for the best mechanical filtration, with
virtually no maintenance!! No, as unbelievable as it sounds we
really mean this – no more ritual every weekend sorting out
dirty/blocked filtration systems……….
UltraFleece filters use an industrial quality filter membrane on
a roll. This makes it possible to remove waste parts upto 20
for the Process:
water enters the filter through a pump fed construction. The
water will run through the membrane (1) where the waste parts,
parasites, eggs, algae, plant remains, fish waste, etc will be
collected. On the membrane arises a so called “filter cake”
(accumulation of waste) which helps to improve the filtration
again. During the increase of this “filter Cake” less water can
run through which increases water levels in the filter. The
large hydrostatic pressure which pushes water through the
already polluted membrane ensures that the UltraFleece can sieve
waste parts upto 20 micron. When the maximum water level has
been reached, the level switch (7) will activate the
conveyor-belt (5) underneath the membrane and the polluted
membrane will be moved to the designated collection area (6). A
slightly increasing 30 degree angle guarantees the waste will
remain on the membrane and not to be flushed away by the water
going through the unit.
part of membrane is then transported from the roll which enables
it to get the optimal filtered water through. As the water falls
through the membrane into the pump/bio-chamber it will also be
greatly enriched with oxygen. The water enters a lower bio
chamber/pump chamber (3) from where the water can go back to the
pond or to the next biological filter.
of the falling water the bio rings in the bio chamber are moved
automatically without the need for an extra air pump. Because of
the thorough cleaning of the membrane the bio chamber does not
require constant cleaning/maintenance.
UltraFleece reduces the time you would spend maintaining your
filtration system dramatically and at the same time gives you
optimal water quality! As a result of this you can also make
great savings on the use of medications, water treatment
supplements, large water changes and ofcourse electricity which
will reduce your carbon footprint……..
membrane rolls (4) you are likely to use in a given year is
highly dependant on factors like pond size, fish load, daily
amount of food etc.
average usage for Koi ponds of 40,000ltrs (8,800 UK gallons)
with 20 large Koi which get high protein food is between 8 and
15 rolls per year.
Obvious improvement of the water quality
cleaning/maintenance, therefore no loss of bio-activity
Decreases the load on the biological filter
possible to use the membrane filter as a pre-filter in
existing filter systems
Manufactured from Polypropylene with compact dimensions
Separate control unit there is only 24volts going to the
Silent 24volt motor which will only cost a few £’s on
electricity per year
only maintenance for this filter is the replacing of the
