AquaForte Bead Filters

Most compact pond filter on the market

Bead filters are closed (pressure) vessels, filled with thousands of plastic beads. These beads are very close together and form a layer through which the water is pressed under pressure of a pump. The dirt particles remain stuck in the beads. If the filters are used for a longer period of time, the biofilm (the sticky layer) around the beads becomes thicker, which causes increasingly fine dirt to be trapped.

Besides mechanical filtration, biological filtration also takes place in a bead filter. Useful bacteria attach themselves to the beads and break down harmful substances such as ammonium, nitrite and nitrate. A bead filter is easy to operate manually via the six-way valve. With this six-way valve various functions can be set, such as cleaning the filter. AquaForte has various bead filters in its range, such as the UltraBead and the EconoBead.

AquaForte UltraBead® Bead Filters

Mechanical and biological filtration

UltraBead® Bead Filters are unrivaled in filter performance because the filter combines both mechanical and biological filtration in one system. All models are standard equipped with a bypass and a redesigned valve construction. This ensures maximum pond water flow with minimal pressure loss.

The new generation of bead filters is made of indestructible thermoplastic. Production by the world’s most reliable injection moulding technique, provides an extra sturdy housing with molded base. The new series of bead filters consists of three models, suitable for a pond of up to 40, 60 or 100 m³. The UB140 is also equipped with 75 mm piping for even less resistance.
