      Description: You'll be hearing a lot about fluidized bed biofilters in years to come. They are simple, compact, self-cleaning, quiet, and extremely easy to use. Water is pumped up through a bed of sand, fluidizing the sand media, providing excellent water/media contact. Fluidized bed biofilters virtually eliminate the need for internal void space (so important for trickling filters, submerged filters, and RBCs), allowing them to pack a lot of surface area in a small space. The QuikSandª biofilters will create very little back pressure (never more than 6 psi), allowing the use of economical low pressure pumps and power heads. UV sterilizers can easily be added after the Quik Sandª filters. QuikSandª offers all sizes, from a small aquarium size to a 180 GPM commercial unit. All units are made in the USA and come with a one-year warranty against defects. Pressurized models are pressure rated to 40 psi. We have very conservatively rated the QuikSandª biofilters at 8 grams of ammonia removed per pound of media per day. These high grade filters are self-supporting as they are mounted to a solid PVC plate. The FB91 has a clear chamber. The FB92 and FB93 have opaque chambers with clear viewing ports. These models are pressurized, come with threaded ports for mounting oxygen and temperature probes if desired. Gpm Flow Rate ± 20 % - 10, Dimensions - 6 in. x 70 in., Ports (FIPT) In/Out - 3/4 in., Media lbs. - 25 not included, Feed per day (using 40% protein feed)- 1.25 lbs. Media Specifications: Use 25% Gravel, 75% Sand by weight. Gravel should be 1/4 in. to 1/3 in. quartz or equivalent. Use 40 Screen Sand.
