How The Nexus+ Works
The Nexus+ filter is an innovative biological and mechanical filter system in one. Water from the pond enters the Nexus+ via the inlet into the inner chamber which works as a vortex allowing larger solids to settle out. The water then passes through Eazy filter, where finer particles are removed at the mechanical stage of filtration, thanks to the static bed of K1 Micro filter media.
The mechanically clean water then passes to the outside chamber of the Nexus+ where the new K+Media Moving Bed is located for biological treatment prior to being returned to the pond. At this stage, biological breakdown occurs through different strains of bacteria and filter feeders living on the vast protected surface area of each piece of the K+Media. These bacteria convert Ammonia and Nitrite into less harmful Nitrate. Water then passes through the exit grill into the outlet, returning back to the pond.
Improved Mechanical Filtration
The new design of the Eazy enables the Nexus to capture solids more effectively than before. K1 Micro is used inside the re-designed Eazy helping to deliver improved capture of fine particles, delivering unrivalled mechanical filtration.
The new Eazy features an improved pattern of slots in the stainless steel body which makes the filter more efficient. Water can pass through all parts of the Eazy much more effectively. This feature combined with the use of K1 Micro makes for improved flow rates through the entire mechanical filter.
Dramatically Improved Clarity
The Nexus 320 and 220 filter systems use two types of filter media to deliver optimum levels of clarity in your pond. K1 Micro is used in the Eazy to improve mechanical filtration while the tried and tested K1 Media is used in the moving bed outer chamber, delivering the biological filtration.
Easy To Clean And Maintain
A key feature of all Nexus filtration systems is the sheer ease of maintenance. This still remains the case with the new Nexus systems. Simply operating a combination of air valves and waste valves ensures that the Eazy filter and main filter body can be easily cleaned to deliver consistent water quality.
Better Solids Handling
Inside the centre mechanical stage of the Nexus, there is a much larger area for solid waste to be captured and to settle. This area can then be cleaned even easier than before ensuring the filter does not clog up with unnecessary amounts of waste.
All Eazy filters used in the Nexus 320 / 220 series can be removed if needed. This added feature is ideal when undertaking further maintenance.
