The Rollermat Compact I removes waste particles from the water. Biofilter and protein skimmer are relieved and the result is crystal clear water and healthy fish. The water is filtered by a fine fleece, which is automatically renewed from a roll, as soon as it is blocked. The pores of the fleece are so small, that even single cell parasites like Ichtyo can be retained.
The polluted water is directed through the inlet into the dirty water compartment. It passes the fleece and flows back into the sump. If the fleece is loaded with dirt, the flow through the fleece decreases and the water level in the dirty water compartment rises. If it reaches a certain level, a level switch starts the motor and fresh fleece is winded forward. Fully automatically. It will take 3 – 6 months, depending on the waste production in the system until the complete fleece is used and has to be replaced. The fleece is very fine. Even smallest particles are removed. The dirt is filtered out of the system, before it is metabolized biologically. This relieves the biofilter and the protein skimmer in seawater.
The pores of the fleece are even fine enough to retain many protozoa, like fish parasites in fresh and saltwater. They cannot pass the fleece. This is unique.
If the accepting roll is full – or the releasing roll empty, it can be taken out of the filter easily. Both parts can be separated and the fleece can be discarded.
Features of the Rollermat Compact I:
- Efficient mechanical filtration by fine filter fleece
- Automatic transport of the fleece
- Easy changing of the used fleece roll
- The rolls are easy to change
- The roll is 10 cm wide, for flow rates up to 2000l/h, depending on the water quality
- Minimum power uptake. Average below 0,1w
- 12V safety voltage
Dimensions: 30 x 52 x22 cm (L x H x W) including the base. Height without base: 46 cm. For the installation you have to calculate 10 cm extra for the height to change the fleece roll easily. If the Rollermat is set up inside of a filter sump, the water level in the sump may not increase higher than 10 cm.
