Aquarium & Zoo Filtration Systems
Zoo Pond Filters and Commercial Aquarium Filters
AST filters are an excellent, low maintenance alternative to traditional sand filters.
Our robust filters are designed to keep your costs down and your animals healthy. They provide both biological and mechanical filtration in one easy-to-use unit. Install less equipment and take up less space while maintaining superior filtration results.
AST Filter Benefits:
- Backwash water reclamation for minimal water loss
- Energy efficient design with low head loss
- Low maintenance, plus automation options save time and labor
Solids Capture Filtration For Animal Ponds & Enclosures
For larger zoo applications, AST recommends our Propeller Bead filters. These filters can process large volumes of water for animal ponds with high solids, perfect for large species enclosures. In applications where the filter is being used only as a clarifier (solids capture), the filter can be sized according to the maximum daily feed rate or you can choose a filter size that fits your specific system’s turnover.
For smaller systems with lower flow requirements, our Bubble Bead filters are a great fit. Bubble Beads have a gentler backwash and have been used successfully on a wide variety of pools for birds, mammals, and reptiles.
If your enclosure requires clear water for a display tank, our experienced filtration specialists can advise additional treatment processes such as UV sterilization, ozone, or sand filtration to increase your water clarity.
All-In-One Biological & Mechanical Filtration for Small to Large Scale Tanks
AST filters are most commonly used as the primary biological and solids filtration component to an aquatic life support system. Specialized aquarium uses include backwash water reclamation, solids capture, and pre-filtration for sand filters. AST filters can be easily configured to work with pre-existing sand filtration devices to provide optimal clarity and minimize water loss.
Our PolyGeyser filters are designed to recycle their own backwash water, for unparalleled water savings. The water loss is 10% that of high rate fluidized sand filters. This efficiency makes it uniquely suitable for saltwater reclamation.
