The new UltraBead 100 filters are manufactured of chemical-resistant, weather resistant, inalterable thermoplastic with the world’s most reliable injection moulding method with built in base.
All models are equipped with a totally new designed multiport valve construction with integrated by-pass ! This guarantees a maximum flow with minimal pressure loss.

The Aquaforte UltraBead 100 is a filter for biological purification: this pressure filter is used in Swimming Ponds, Koi Ponds or pleasure ponds.

How does this filter work ?

The small dirt particles will stick to the bead pack. The longer the filter is active, the more bio film there will be around the beads and therefore small particles can be filtered (down to 10 micron!).
Biological filtration:

The specific surface of the beads is about 1600m² per m³, so the bio film layer around the beads is extremely useful nor nitrifying bacteria that consume vast amounts of ammonia, nitrites and nitrates.

The pump therefore discharges water from the bottom to the top of the filter: water can rise slowly evenly through the beads that act as bacterial supports.

In filter mode, water enters the filter through the bottom screen (A), rises in the filter, and passes through the floating bead mat. The water comes out of the filter from the top via the strainer (B) which holds the beads. All particles light enough to be carried away by the water flow are trapped in the bead mattress. The heavier particles are deposited at the bottom of the filter.

A multi-way valve (C) allows washing, rinsing, filtration, recirculation, etc. Washing consists in circulating the water in the filter but in the opposite direction (backwashing) and by stirring the beads. A blower (D - high volume air compressor) allows very aggressive agitation of the beads by injecting air into the filter. A purge valve (E) allows the filter to be drained.


The surface needed to install this filter is reduced: it offers maximum performance for a small footprint.

It can be positioned below the water level: often very practical!

The cleaning operation is simple and fast: and no need to get your hands dirty!

Which water pump ?
A Pond being filtered in 2 hours, a pump is required whose flow is equal to at least half the volume of the pond.

Example: for a Pond of 30 m3, it is necessary for the pump to pump at least 15 m3 / h at a pressure of 0.2 to 0.3 bar, taking into account the losses in loads. To obtain a correct rinsing of the filter, a pump which delivers a pressure of at least 1 bar is required.
