FILTRAPHOS 10 and FILTRAPHOS 20 are waterproof filters, which can also be used in case of no sump. They can be placed, besides inside or outside the sump, under the tank too.
FILTRAPHOS 10 and FILTRAPHOS 20 are filled with NOPHOS 101, a selective resin for absorbing Phosphate both in fresh- and saltwater aquariums.
FILTRAPHOS 10 e FILTRAPHOS 20 are done on “fluidized bed filter” base, to avoid the risk of channeling of the water.
FILTRAPHOS 10 is already provided with a circulation pump in case the filter is placed in the sump or nearby it; in this case the water flow through the filter is about 15-20 l/h, which is the best rate for absorbing Phosphate up to 0.2 mg/l, or when the filter is used to prevent Phosphate in aquarium.
In case Phosphate concentration is more than 0.2 mg/l, the water flow must be half reduced by the small check valve with which the filter is provided.
In case FILTRAPHOS 10 is placed under the tank and directly connected to the tank, it must be fed by a pump with a proper head, to get the above mentioned water flows.
FILTRAPHOS 10 is suitable for aquariums up to 400 liters.
