What is the X-Filter ?

The X filter from Innovitech is a UK designed premium digitally controlled automatic roll filter, a highly effective water particulate filtration unit. Primarily for use in marine, tropical & freshwater aquariums to replace the use of filter socks & floss. This can be used in large display and coral propagation systems too.

The X-Filter has the capability to filter down to 9 microns with the advantage that all filtered particles are removed from the water achieving active nutrient control. Filter section is fully sealed, giving YOU the choice of whether to bypass water or not.

A a real world test program has been in effect since early 2017, the X-filter has been installed in various Marine set ups and the participants have all reported outstanding positive results.

Filter roll is 65 meters (213 ft) long available in 9, 17, 25 & 32 micron.  Filter out organic waste, detritus, food, micro algae, substrate dust and other unwanted waste.

X-Filter Model 1.0 is capable of flow rates up to 7000 liters per hour
X-Filter Model 1.7 can handle flow rates in excess of 10,000 liters per hour , both depending on which grade of media is being used.
