Ultrabead Beadfilters are closed pressure vessels filled with millions of small plastic beads. These beads float and therefore provide a means of mechanical filtration and the enormous surface of these beads provides the biological filtration.
The beads float in a closed vessel and are packed very close to each other. The pressure of the pump makes the water flow upward through the beads. The small dirt particles will stick in the bead pack. The longer the filter is active, the more bio film there will be around the beads and therefore smaller particles can be filtered.
The specific surface of the beads is about 1600m2 per m3 thats 6 times more than a blue Japanese Matting sheet, so the bio film layer around the beads are extremely useful for nitrifying bacteria that consume vast amounts of ammonia and nitrites.
The Ultrabead Beadfilter is available in 4 sizes for ponds up to 2000, 8000, 12000 and 20000 Gallons.
We would always advise a Sieve in front of any Beadfilter, so we have put together the Ultrabead filter and the New Ultrasieve III.
We are offering a free UltraBead Filter Low Pressure Bypass Kit worth £175.00 to use this system with low pressure pumps like Sequence or Blue Eco range of pumps on any of the below Combinations:
- Ultrabead UB40 (Ponds up to 2000 Gallons) + Ultrasieve III (£175.00 Saving)
- Ultrabead UB60 (Ponds up to 8000 Gallons) + Ultrasieve III (£175.00 Saving)
- Ultrabead UB100 (Ponds up to 12000 Gallons) + Ultrasieve III (£175.00 Saving)
- Ultrabead UB140 (Ponds up to 20000 Gallons) + Ultrasieve III (£175.00 Saving)
