Filtreco (formerly Filtra) Sieve for mechanical filters are used for the first step in the filtering process, ie for filtration! When mechanical filtration the first coarse particles such as faeces, leaves and food remains separated. This is necessary to the load on the biological filter medium as low as possible.
The Filtreco Sieve 2's can be directly on a skimmer and bottom drain are connected. This is important for proper recycling of your entire pond system. The water is supplied by the two tubes of the skimmer and bottom drain. Choose the best for this connection a tube of 110 mm. By 110 mm. the dirt circulation function optimally! We also advise you to a tee for the Sieve the bottom drain pipe to mount directly to the sewer is connected. If this is not possible you can also dump pit with submersible use from there the dirt to enter. A bottom drain pipe of 110 mm. ie must have a minimum flow of 17 m3/hr to prevent accumulation of solid particles.
In practice we can not achieve recirculation rate, hence the additional possibility to rinse! Once arrived in the Filtreco Sieve the water will run over a stainless steel sieve. This is where the initial separation of the solid particles. The sieve openings of 300 to 200 microns during the last 5 cm. This is more than enough to the main dirt particles to be captured and still enough power to pass that the mineralizing bacteria badly! After passing through the strainer, the water via a drain pan by means of a pump to be transported further. Usually this will lead to a biological filter or in some cases directly to the pond.
Above the filter is a movable valve that the water supply can be interrupted when the filter needs cleaning. This allows the stain with a minimal amount of water from the system flushing. Requires an additional drain on the Filtreco Sieve integrated! This drain can also back up your sewer or landfill pit connect.
