Bioforce 5500 UVC Filter
Redesigned foam, back flush facility, high efficiency UVC and new Kaldnes K3 biomedia
give exceptional pond water treatment power and easier, less frequent cleaning
New model sporting best-in-class biological and mechanical filtration performance and
extended cleaning intervals as well as the familiar benefits of pressurised filters.
A major feature of the Bioforce redesign is the introduction of an easy-clean back flush facility to clear debris away quickly from the filter foams without having to remove them.
Pond keepers simply have to swap over inlet and outlet hoses to give the foam a regular
two minute back flush to keep the system running efficiently for longer before
needing to remove the foam for a thorough clean.
At the same time, the mechanical filtration in Bioforce has been redesigned and now
incorporates an advanced coarse through-flow layered foam filtration system.
This clogs less easily and presents a larger surface area for efficient waste removal
than conventional foam cartridges.
Remaining effective for longer than existing filters before they need to be cleaned,
the new reticulated foam filter reduces one of the biggest chores in filter maintenance.
The layered foams also enable easier and more thorough cleaning.
The Bioforce biological filtration system has also been significantly upgraded
with the introduction of Kaldnes K3 biomedia throughout the range.
Kaldnes K3 is scientifically proven in industrial water treatment processes
and has more bacteriological capacity than other types of biomedia.
It provides a stable environment in which beneficial bacteria can thrive while
older, less active bacteria are purged during back flush cleaning.
NEW HIGHER PERFORMANCE HOZELOCK CYPRIO BIOFORCE POND FILTERS
The UVCs efficiency is maximised by the use of single-ended lamps and Hozelock Cyprios
Turbulator design which forces all the incoming pond water to spin around the UV lamp.
This exposes the water more thoroughly to the flocculating effect of UV light which causes
the algae particles to clump together and fall to the bottom of the chamber.
Consequently, green water is eliminated more quickly.
