Pond Uv Clarifiers >> Yamitsu Algae Master UV




Yamitsu Algae Master Pond UV Clarifier

Yamitsu Algae Master Pond UV Clarifier

Yamitsu algae master uv's are made from UV stabilised materials to ensure a longer life and incorporate turbulators to enhance the unit’s performance. Large inlet and exhaust ports make the algae master uv suitable for a wide range of pond uv applications. It is recommended that the algae master uv should be installed using solid solvent weld pipe.

However, all algae master uv's come complete with free (glue in) hosetails enabling them to be connected to ½", ¾", 1", 1¼" and 1½" flexible pipe. Algae master uv's will also fit most popular 1½" household solvent weld waste and pressure pipes.

Yamitsu Algae Master Pond UV Installation

If you have a severe algae problem you should effect a partial water change before starting the installation. Yamitsu Algae Master Pond UV can be added to any existing filtration system. For best results algae master units should be fitted in line, after the pump, with water being forced through them. Use the largest size of pipe possible. If hosetails are to be used, it is very important that they are trimmed to the largest possible size that will fit inside the flexible pipe (before glueing in place). This will ensure that the maximum flow rate can be obtained for the size of pipe.

Yamitsu Algae Master UV Maintenance

Although maintenance is minimal all UV lamps need replacing at six monthly intervals. The algae master's uv lamp may be illuminated and appear to be working but the radiation dosage diminishes with age and is ineffective after six months. Dispose of used uv lamps sensibly. Even exhausted uv lamps should NEVER be looked at directly when illuminated

As the algae master uv is dependant upon water passing through it, it is important to ensure that any pump strainers, pre-filters or delivery pipes are not blocked or are causing the flow to be restricted.



To change the Yamitsu Algae Master lamp

Isolate your algae master uv from mains power, turn off pump, remove shower-proof ends and lamp holder, carefully slide out lamp, undo circular nut at each end of unit, remove "O" rings, one from each end, carefully slide out quartz sleeve. To clean use rag dampened with pond water, wipe dry with a cloth and reinstall. Use no chemical cleaners harmful to fish. To reinstate slide silica quartz sleeve back into position carefully, reposition "O" rings at either end over quartz, centralise tube with an even amount protruding at either end, replace nuts (hand tighten only), turn on pump and test for leaks, if on inspection no leaks are apparent replace lamp as above and reconnect

If you are unable to position your algae master uv in a location where it will not freeze, make allowances during the installation to ensure you can easily remove it for storage during the colder times of the year.

Yamitsu Quartz Sleeves

Yamitsu Quartz Sleeves

For those Koi and pond enthusiasts who are not as careful at they might be, we do also sell the spare Yamitsu Quartz Sleeves in the most standard sizes.

The Yamitsu Quartz Sleeve insulates the lamp from the water, allowing the lamp to operate at the optimum performance.

The ultraviolet lamp will remain independent of the flow of water. Yamitsu Quartz Sleeves are of open ended construction and are made from pure fused quartz.

Quartz is extremely transparent over a wide spectral range, with a  low coefficient of thermal expansion and quartz is resistant to scratching and thermal shock. Fused quartz is made form crushing and melting natural materials. The purity of quartz is paramount to the efficiency of the lamp and sleeve.

Yamitsu Quartz Sleeves

Greater ultraviolet transmission
Low coefficient of thermal expansion
Increased hardness and resistance to scratching
Higher resistance to solarisation or darkening from ultraviolet radiation

Quartz sleeves are available for the Yamitsu Algae Master Pond UV Clarifier 6, 8, 11, 15, 25, 30 and 55 watt units.
