Evolution Aqua - K+

Code: Evolution-Aqua-K+
  • From £49.95
  • (Delivery from £4.95)

Specifications:

– Filters mature faster with K+Media

 Total Surface Area: 1350m² per m³

– Protected Surface Area: 1,025m2 per m3

– Diameter: 10.2mm

– Length: 8mm

– Provides a large surface area for bacteria to colonise

 Increased protection for the bio-film

 Provides mechanical and biological filtration

 Reduces back pressure on pumps

– Improved solids handling

– Increased flow rate

– Ideal for use in bead filters, conventional pond filters, marine and freshwater aquarium filters

 Improved cleaning

– Microscopic organisms such as Rotifers and Vorticella thrive in quiet zones 

– Exceptional solids removal thanks to efficient, proven design

– Reduced energy consumption, less back pressure on pumps

– Used in Nexus+ filters for improved biological filtration in moving bed

Other Details:

During the extrusion process, Evolution Aqua add a range of minerals, along with magnesium, calcium, enzymes and salt to the raw material that is used to manufacture K+Media.  The result means that K+Media will mature much faster than many other types of media. 

– The addition of these minerals creates a rough surface on the media. This textured surface has a microscopic honeycomb of peaks and craters that allow waste particles to collect, and nitrifying bacteria to form. 

– The minerals act as a food source for the bacteria, helping the bacteria to develop and multiply at a faster rate, further improving maturation times. 

– Calcium alone has proven advantages for developing and maintaining effective bio-films.

– The enzymes that are added also help to make the media sticky so waste particles can adhere to media easier.

– Salt is added during the extrusion process, which is dissolved during the cooling process, leaving a rough surface on which bio-film can easily adhere. 

The shape of K+Media optimises the amount of quiet zones within the media where a stable bio-film can develop. Whilst K+Media keeps the integral profile of K1 Media at its core, there is an extra layer of cells and fins around the outside of each piece that enable microscopic organisms such as Rotifers and Vorticella to thrive. This is an additional benefit as competitor media do not have such quiet zones that would allow these higher lifeforms of filter feeders to develop. The bacteria and organisms that form within the bio-film ensure the media delivers optimum levels of biological filtration in the moving bed, which has been proven filtration technology for many years in the fish-keeping hobby.

What is the Benefit of a Moving Bed? 

Moving bed media has many advantages over traditional static bed filters including a huge surface area which is always exposed to maximum oxygen and food for the bacteria, self cleaning media as it tumbles, and the world famous protected surface area, enabling bacteria and higher organisms to dwell in their preferred location inside the media, exposed to oxygen and food, but safe from harmful cleaning practices.

Evolution Aqua - K+

New to the Evolution Aqua range.

K+Media is designed and manufactured in the UK by Evolution Aqua. This advanced media, with its innovative design, and class leading surface area provides enhanced biological and mechanical filtration.

As Evolution Aqua extrude the K+Media, Minerals and Enzymes are added to the raw material.  The result of this process, unique to Evolution Aqua, is a filtration media that not only outperforms most of its competitors due to its large protected surface area, but also answers the problem of how to speed up the time taken to mature your filter.

After many years of research, Evolution Aqua have now developed a new media that not only gives class leading surface area, but also overcomes the problem of long maturation times.
