Description

Kaldnes K1 Media is different. There's no doubt about it when compared to static media.

These small wheels provide the maximum active surface area for beneficial bacteria to colonise. And, by moving within the filter, old dead bacteria on the outside is removed, to be replaced by fresh bacteria that feed heavily and colonise rapidly.

The inside of the wheel is a protected surface where colonies of bacteria can follow a natural lifecycle, maturing, dying and then fueling the latter stages of the nitrification cycle. 

Constant movement causes the media to self-clean and as a result requires no maintenance, unlike foam, matting, or other forms of static filtration media. Optimum performance is reached without disturbance from any periodic cleaning and loss of bacteria.

Kaldnes media therefore provides the best possible habitat for both the young and mature beneficial bacteria that remove harmful ammonia and nitrite from the water.

Kaldnes K1 Features:

  • Maximum active surface area
  • Movement displaces dead bacteria
  • Bacteria can follow natural lifecycle
  • Self-cleaning

50 litres of K1 media is suitable to handle up to 250 grammes of food per day. 

Maturing the Kaldnes bio-media is important because a delicate eco-system is naturally developing for the bacteria involved in the nitrification process. Kaldnes media provides the maximum active surface area for the bacteria to colonise, more than other types of static media. It is this process which removes harmful ammonia and nitrite from the water.

Why K1 Kaldnes Is Different

As the Kaldnes media moves within the filter, it causes the old dead bacteria on the outside to be displaced. This makes space for new younger heavier feeding bacteria to rapidly colonise.

Within the wheel is a protected surface which enables colonies of bacteria to naturally follow their lifecycle, of maturing, dying and then fueling the latter stages of the nitrification cycle. Kaldnes has been designed to provide the best possible habitat for both young and mature beneficial bacterial colonies.

What is meant by 'self cleaning'?

Unlike foam, matting, or other forms of static filtration media, the Kaldnes K1/K3 media is designed to move freely within your filter. The constant chaotic movement of the air from your pump, causes the media to self-clean and thus requires no maintenance.

This allows the filter to reach optimum effectiveness without the disturbance of periodic cleaning, avoiding unnecessary loss of bacteria within the filter.

50 Litres of K1 media will handle up to 250 grammes of food per day and for K3, 225 grammes of food per day. For retrofit of existing filters, K3 media is the most suitable due to its larger size and ease of control.
