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.

Draco Drum Bio Unit
Draco Drum Bio Unit was designed to co-ordinate with the Draco Drum Solum Range of drum filters, they utilise the same curved base configuration to reduce dirt traps and can be installed either singly or in multiples. Advantages with the Draco Drum Bio Unit:
  • The Design also causes the bio media to more easily circulate, thereby increasing the amount of bio media your water touches as it travels through the unit.
  • Can be installed in multiple configurations to make best use of the space you have available.
  • Standard models utilise twin 4” inlet / outlets but can be modified for individual needs.
  • Dimensions - 610mm wide x 700mm long x 680mm depth.
  • Holds 100 litres of typical bio media in 185 litres of water.
  • One unit capable of filtering ponds of approx. 4,000 UK gallons per unit.

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.

Draco Drum Minima Combi Unit
The Minima – Combi Unit Another first for Draco - a true, fully functional, expandable drum combi system for under £1000. Perfect for quarantines, average stocked ponds to 2000 gallons, multi tank / sump installations and anywhere else a complete, compact unit is needed where there is very little space as it is only 30.5cm wide. Height above static pond water level is 17.5cm and approx 18.5 above pump fed. This unit will run gravity or pump, but in pump, we will derate the maximum flow by 25%, in line with experience on our larger drums. 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. The integrated controller has start / emergency stop buttons and a knob allowing you to change the length of wash. LED indicator shows the length of time between washes in minutes. Status of the unit is via 4 colour coded LEDs. Low voltage, sealed water valves and drive units utilising an extremely low geared stepper motor drive system mean that only 12 volts is anywhere near your pond water. Designed to run without a noisy and power hungry wash pump in most circumstances (they are available if required). On standby the unit can use less than 12 watts and in full wash mode, use 35 watts. It is entirely possible to run it off a car battery for prolonged periods of time. Combi Unit Dimensions (Including inlet/outlet pipes) – 350mm wide x 1215mm long x 488mm high Height above water level – 175mm Pond Volume – Approx 2,000 UK gallons Single 3” inlet and outlets recommend air pump size 40ltr no media included
