OASE German Engineers have completely overhauled the highly successful BioTec 12 ScreenMatic filter and have released the innovative BioTec ScreenMatic² 40000 Pond Filter.
This compact gravity outlet, flow-through filter box features an automated pre-filter conveyor which will screen out larger debris and transport this on a porous conveyor belt to a large collection basket for periodic emptying. The new Screendrive mechanism is now fully automated via a special cleaning sensor which controls the belt functions depending on the dirt level detected on the porous belt. Only small particles pass through the ScreenMatic drive belt where the large surface area biological/mechanical filter foams will trap and break down the organic waste. This innovative mechanism places far less biological load on the filter foams, meaning less maintenance and crystal clear water quality in ornamental, Goldfish and Koi ponds alike.
The OASE BioTec ScreenMatic² 40000 is an intelligent, flow-through pond filter that provides automated mechanical waste removal and biological filtration. The water enters the filter via a flow spreader onto a 300 micron fabric belt which strains out solid waste particles. When sufficiently soiled, a sensor engages the motor which performs a cleaning cycle, transferring the accumulated waste into a collection tray below the screen. The control display also allows instant cleaning cycles at the press of a button. The waste sensor can be adjusted backward and forward to alter cleaning regularity based on waste accumulation. A cleaning brush is supplied to keep the fabric screen free of entrapped dirt.
After mechanical straining, water enters the the biological media, a series of 8 large filter sponges differing in coarseness. The blue foams are rough, violet are medium fine and red are very fine grade. These sponges provide an abundance of surface housing for aerobic bacteria to populate and breakdown soluble waste pollutants. Cleaning the foams is made easy by the compression handle used to push down on the foams to release any build up of organic waste. Water is then directed through cartridges containing 2.5kg of granulate media (zeolite) which bind unwanted nutrients and trace ammonia before returning water to the pond.
