  5. Week 25: Going beyond filter socks: The Theiling Rollermat | 52 Weeks of Reefing #BRS160

    Week 25: Going beyond filter socks: The Theiling Rollermat | 52 Weeks of Reefing #BRS160

    It's Week 25 of 52 Weeks of Reefing, and this week we are exploring filters socks, pads, and some revolutionary new technology in the Theiling Rollermat. Mechanical filtration is an important aspect in the modern reef tank, with most hobbyists opting to choose filter socks as a simple means to removing particulate matter from the tank. Removing the particulate matter like uneaten food, fish waste, and detritus from the tank prior to it being broken down by natural processes is a fantastic way...

    The Genesis is the first automatically changing paper filter we had at BRS had ever come across (at Interzoo a few years back). The Genesis Paper Filter is a mechanical filter for your aquarium that uses a self changing roll of paper instead of the more commonly used filter sock. In the Genesis system water comes down through the overflow and passes through the sheet of filter paper in the filter. As the filter paper removes debris it slowly clogs. When that happens the water level rises and flows out a secondary exit. As the water flows out the secondary exit it passes over a water wheel. The water wheel rotates and mechanically turns the roll of paper, exposing fresh new paper. Compared to other similar concepts out there, the Genesis is unique because it doesn't require any electricity. The rolls are not controlled by motors and float switches, but is entirely mechanically via the water wheel. The secondary outlet also functions as a backup. In the event you are not home to change the filter material the water will simply pass around the filter and continue on its journey...

  7. A self changing mechanical filter? The Theiling Rollermat | Interzoo 2014

    A self changing mechanical filter? The Theiling Rollermat | Interzoo 2014

    The Theiling Rollermat is like a filter sock, except that it filters detritus out of the water column by passing it through filter paper off of a long roll. As the filter paper clogs, the water level in the cleaner rises. When the water rises it activates a float switch that causes the roll of paper to rotate, exposing fresh new filter material. This method results in a filter that is smaller and less expensive than models that rely on a mechanical water wheel. Connect with us on Facebook:...
