Product Information

These external canister filters are extraordinarily user-friendly and can be used in virtually any tank to purify water and maintain the required water parameters. The Ultramax filters boast a high water flow rate (max. 1000 up to 2000 l/h) and can efficiently operate even in very large tanks (up to 700 l). In addition, being very capacious, they can hold large quantities of filter media. Filter media are placed in handy ergonomic baskets with a capacity of 1.9 l each. This guarantees extremely efficient mechanical and biological filtration. The filters are supplied with a complete set of filter media carefully selected to meet the needs of a typical aquarium.

Built into the lid of each Ultramax filter is a big sponge pre-filter (with a capacity of 0.6l) designed to capture course mechanical impurities before they can get inside the filter. In this way, the pre-filter protects the device from clogging, which reduces the required frequency of cleaning to a minimum. Instead, it is sufficient to regularly wash the pre-filter sponge in tap water. This only takes a few minutes and does not require disconnecting the filter from the power supply or taking it out of the aquarium stand.

The water inlets and outlets in the Ultramax filters are equipped with dual ball-valves that are extremely reliable. The valves prevent even the smallest water leaks and allow the hoses to be easily and quickly disconnected from the filter when it has to undergo cleaning and maintenance.

Key Features:-

  • Inbuilt pre-filter ensures long operation without the need for cleaning
  • Performance control adjuster
  • Self-priming mode at the start-up
  • Exceptionally quiet operation thanks to the use of a ceramic rotor shaft
  • integrated cut-off valves
  • Lower power consumption
  • Replacement filter media available
