Pro Pond Fluid Bed Filters - unpressurised
to reduce the maturation time of filters as well as sand and gravel
Pro Pond Fluid Bed Filters
Low cost, maintenance free units designed specifically for the
professional pond and koi keeper. They should be used in
conjunction with other filtration elements to create a well-
balanced filtration package. Unlike aquaculture, koi pond filtration
is based on high water volume to bio-mass ratios.
These units incorporate all the unique features of our commercial
units including low head start up, diffuser bowl and anti-siphon device.
Supplied with graded oolitic aragonite media.
TMC Fluidised Sand Bed Filters are designed to operate with
50-100% expansion of the sand bed (approx. 75% of the total
filter column height). Flow rates specified are designed to be
a maximum of 180m

Technical Fact
p.51
The maximum livestock mass of theTMC Commercial Fluid SandTowers has been calculated based on a
feed rate of 3% body weight per day, feed with a protein content of 50% and at warm water temperatures.
Most commercial facilities operate at high stocking densities and want to achieve high growth rates, resulting
in an increased demand on the bio-filtration.To compensate for this, the maximum livestock mass has been
reduced.
The maximum livestock mass of the Pro Pond Fluid BedTowers is based on a feed rate of 1% body weight
per day, feed with a protein content of 35% and cooler water temperatures. Pond filtration is based on much
lower stocking densities (high water volume to livestock mass ratio), with the main purpose of keeping fish
and not growing them. For this reason the specified maximum livestock mass is higher for these units
.
