Aqua Ultraviolet Bio Media is a sinking media with a very high biofilm surface that is many times greater than other plastic media. Superior bacterial adhesion and colonization is achieved due to the surface texture and grade of plastic used. Additionally, beneficial bacteria is able to build up into a bacterial matrix due to the excellent interstitial spacing with in the media.
There is a patent pending on this tubular media which has low head loss and a very high biofilm surface. The “Y” shape on the inside and wings on the outside affords a protective surface under backwashing. The same properties have been added to this media in three different sizes with random lengths and diameters to avoid stacking.
One cubic foot of Aqua Ultra Bio-Media for your Aqua Ultraviolet system is equal to 750 square feet of surface area.
