UltraBead Filter

Ultrabead Bead filters 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.

Ultrabead Bead Filter Mechanical 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.

Ultrabead Bead Filter Biological filtration: the specific surface of the beads is about 1600m2 per m3(6 times more than a blue Japanese Mat), so the bio film layer around the beads extremely useful for nitrifying bacteria that consume vast amounts of ammonia and nitrites.

Pre Filters

The in and output system of the Ultrabead Bead Filter has laterals (slotted pipe) to keep the beads inside the filter and therefore we need a pre-filter to prevent the possibility of large solids (string algae, pine needles, leaves and fish waste) coming in from a bottom drain or submersible pump. We strongly recommend the use of the Ultrasieve III filter in before the Ultrabead Bead Filter.

How The UltraBead Bead Filter Works

Water enters into the tank under pressure from the pump. This water, by means of the unique design of the Ultrabead Bead Filter, spins separating the heavier solids and forcing them to the centre of the tank. The solids are collecting in the centre of the Ultrabead Bead Filter, waiting to be hydraulically purged out under pressure from the pump. All you have to do is open the swirl separation valve with the pump running and the filter in it’s normal filtration mode and the heavier solids are evacuated in just a couple of seconds. What does all of this mean? The Ultrabead Bead Filter is the most unique, efficient filter of its kind. An efficient filter like the Ultrabead Bead Filter doesn’t hold solids, it gets rid of them!

Now that the water is in the Ultrabead Bead Filter it is forced slowly upward in the vessel through zillions of beads. On these beads are billions of nitrifying bacteria and these hungry bacteria are consuming vast amounts of ammonia, nitrites, etc. and performing what is known as nitrification. This is how we actually have clean, healthy water is due to the work these minute organisms are performing. Water continues to flow upward through the beads and exits out of the Ultrabead Bead Filter via the top spray bar. This water then continues into the multi port valve and depending on the setting on the multi port, the water continues then to the pond.

The Ultrabead Bead Filter have another unique feature: the UltraTrust Blower . This blower is mounted on a special air check valve. It is important that the valve be in the rinse position for the blower agitation of the beads. When the blower is active the beads and debris are dispersed throughout the interior of the filter. This breaks up the beads and releases the trapped particles. This debris then can easily be backwashed out to waste through the spray bar .

After the RINSE cycle with air we perform a backwash in which the water enters at C en leaves the filter through A. After the backwash there will be another RINSE cycle but with water instead of air. This takes any remaining debris and sends it to waste , instead of sending a cloud of dirt back to the pond.

All UltraBead Bead filters models are standard equipped with a 2” multi-port valve, a transparent access cap and a powerful blower.

UltraBead filters are constructed from high quality fibreglass conforming drink water standards so they are completely save for your fish.

The UltraBead Bead filters come with a warranty period of 5 years on the pipe and fitting system and a warranty period of 10 years on the fibreglass vessel and beads. Order your UltraBead filter today.

UltraBead Filter Low Pressure Bypass Kit

UltraBead Filter Low Pressure Bypass Kit

You can now use low wattage pumps with the Ultrabead Filter, Ultrabead have introduced a bypass for Europe’s best selling beadfilter !

Installing the UltraBead Low Pressure Bypass Kit allows the use of more economical pumps. Due to a very compact bypass-system, the multi-way valve is completely unused during filtering as the water flows directly into the filter and also leaves the filter in a direct line. This action results in at least 30% less pressure loss (depending on the type of pump).

The bypass system is very easy to install on all UltraBead models, using the unions supplied. Connection: 63mm.

THE MULTIPORT VALVE

“FILTER” : water enters the EconoBead filter and goes upward through the beads and exits out of the vessel via the top spray bar to return to the pond.

“RECIRCULATE” : With the “RECIRCULATE” feature you can bypass your EconoBead filter and flow the water from pond to pump to multiport and back to pond. This comes in handy when you are treating the pond.

“WASTE”: allows the water to bypass the EconoBead filter and go directly to waste, such as when you are performing a backwash cycle. You can also use the waste setting to vacuum out your pond without the garbage going into your filter, it bypasses the EconoBead filter via the multiport and goes out to waste.

“RINSE”: The first time we use the RINSE feature to wash the beads with the blower which forces huge amounts of air into the vessel and since air rises in water, the beads are broken apart by this action, making a thorough backwash easy to accomplish. After the backwash function we use the RINSE feature again but now with water instead of air. It is impossible to get every little bit of debris out of a filter and this causes these minute particles to exit in the waste line instead of going back into the pond.

“BACKWASH”: In this position we let the pump run until the water in sight glass is clear (normally 1 to 2 minutes). The water enters the EconoBead filter from the top spray bar (C) and exits the vessel at (A) and goes out to waste.

BACKWASH INSTRUCTIONS

With the pump running open the valve to the sludge drain. Keep it open for 15-20 seconds, and then shut it. This will purge the large solids that have made it into the EconoBead filter and settled out in the bottom of the tank to waste. It is very important to get them out of the system for overall water quality and more efficient filter operation.
*IMPORTANT* Do not open the sludge drain valve with the pump off, as you may loose beads to waste if water is allowed to drain out this valve.

1. Turn off pump.

2. Move multiport valve to rinse. Air will go out of the EconoBead filter to waste and a small amount of water when blower is activated.

3. Activate blower unit for 1-2 minutes. During this time the beads and debris is dispersed throughout the interior of the EconoBead filter. This breaks up all trapped particles in the filter allowing the debris to be easily backwashed out to waste.

4. Move multiport valve to backwash mode. Turn pump on and run until backwash water is clear. Turn pump off.

5. Move multiport valve to rinse feature. Turn pump on and run until water is clear. This takes any leftover debris that would have gone back into the pond and sends it to waste instead of sending a grunge cloud of debris back into the pond. Turn off pump.

6. Move multiport valve back to EconoBead filter position and restart pump. You’re done.

After you become familiar with the backwash process you can accomplish the backwash cycle completely in about 4 or 5 minutes. Every pond is different; however most people find that backwashing needs to be done once or twice a week.

The UltraSieve Midi is a Gravity Fed pre-filter to filter waste solids from the water via a bottom drain or through a skimmer. This technique is based upon the very successful Ultrasieve III, which incorporates a sieve-bend. A sieve-bend consists of hundreds of sharp stainless steel profile wires with very small slot openings where the water can go through but the solids stay on the sieve bend. In practice it works as follows:

The water enters the Ultrasieve Midi via the Ultraskim or bottom drain and passes through the “auto-adjustable” dam and will go upwards and fall over the weir on to the Stainless Steel sieve-bend.
