Drum Filters Although traditionally more expensive than almost all other forms of purely mechanical filtration, Drum Filters have 2 redeeming features – the ability to consistently filter out particles down to around 50 to 90 microns and to vastly reduce maintenance and cleaning on any filter system they are fitted to. Because they take so much debris out of the water at the beginning of the filtration process, it allows the “back end” or biological part of the filter to work far more efficiently as it doesn’t have to cope with low levels of muck building up on the bacterial surfaces. This also reduces the risk of bacterial infection on your fish as there are fewer places for “bad bacteria” to propogate. The results are almost akin to getting a whole new filter.

AquaForte Prime Combi-Drum Filter

The AquaForte Prime Combi-Drum Filter is the perfect combination for mechanical & biological filtration in one housing: Drum filter with moving bed. Very compact size for a total filter system, fits on 1 pallet. The Drum filter part is identical to the AquaForte Prime Drum filter XL. The moving bed module has a volume of over 200 litres and is therefore suitable for at least 100 litres of media such as the Oase Hel X or the Evolution Aqua K Range Because of the slots in the passage, the bio chamber is not suitable for Eco Pond chips. Bio media is not included. Moving bed is equipped with large membrane aerator and piping for air pump connection. Max. flow ±30m³/h.

How does the Draco Drum Bio Unit work?

Operation of the Draco Drum Bio Unit

Draco Drum Bio Unit unit is configured as a downward flow, diverted input unit with longitudinal air delivery, to manage water flow around the chamber, maximising the active volume for bio filtration.

Incoming water at the top will have a tendency to “track” diagonally or straight down to the outlet, the path of “least resistance”. By making it interact with the air from the bottom of the tank, this waterflow is disrupted and forced back upwards.

If part of the incoming flow is diverted towards the centre of the tank, the water is forced into the area where the air is rising, enhancing this flow disruption and pushing the water out to the sides.

As the water is pushed sideways at the surface of the unit, it has no choice but to travel downwards when it hits the side. The bottom of the chamber is curved, helping that downward flow turn into a circulatory movement. When reaching the airbar right at the bottom of the unit, the water is forced back up to repeat the circulation until it exists out of the far end. This curved bottom also eliminates any corners where debris may accumulate.

Height above static pond water level is 17.5cm .

This unit will run gravity fed only!

Media capacity is approximately 40 litres and can take micro K1.

An additional bolt on bio unit will be available, allowing the user to seamlessly double the biological capacity of the filter.

Filtreau Drum filter

Filtreau Drum filter

Now look what we have here!. A drum filter for the price of a good quality sieve. If that was not enough, these Filtreau Drum filters come complete with a built in 40watt Amalagam UV as well. There is no other prefilter available on the market that represents such a good price.

These Filtreau Drum filters have been produced to provide an entry level into the drum filter market. But the quality of these drum filters are superb for the price and represent excellent value for money.

Designed for ponds up to 5000 gallons these Filtreau Drum filters have two 4″ (110mm) inlets and one 110mm outlet for connection of the circulation pump, and one 4″ (110mm) outlet for the waste.

The drum filter comes complete with all the control gear and as mentioned above also has a 40watt Amalagam UV built in.

This drum filter, with it’s 60 micron screen will filter particles out of the ponds water automatically with the automatic cleaning process that is built into the drum. Sensors monoitor the water levels within the drum filter and a cleaning cycle is activated as and when necessary to ensure that all waste particles are removed and then flushed to waste.

There are two options available for this backwash process, you can either connect the drum up to the mains water supply and use mains water to clean the drum (a solenoid valve will be required for this option which we can supply), or a optional pressure pump can be purchased which wll be controlled by the drums built in controller and use the water held within the drum to clean the drum’s screen.

The motor that rotates the drum and the control gear have been used on other drum filters in the Netherlands and fully tested over the past 3 years so you can buy with confidence both on quality and reliablity.

The manufacturer of this Filtreau Drum filter will be shortly releasing an add on Bio-Chamber that will connect to this drum filter to provide all the biological filtration required for your pond. We will update this section as soon as they are available. This option will then enable you to have the full benefits of a Bio-Compact system which are the most cost effective and environmentally friendly forms of pond filtration available as lower wattage pumps can be used on the circulation of your ponds water.
