Fuji MAC 40 Air Pump

Fuji MAC 40 Air Pump

FujiMAC’s 30-year track record of producing the world’s best diaphragm air pump has been achieved through stringent quality control. FujiMAC is made in Japan. 100 per cent of design, production and testing is performed in Japan. FujiMAC diaphragm air pumps are built to last.

The quietest and energy efficient diaphragm air pump is also the most rugged and longest lasting. And when it does need maintenance, 15 minutes with a few simple tools will have your pump ready for years more reliable service.

Compact – high quality Japanese internal components, including a small powerful rare earth magnet means FujiMAC is smaller than competing pumps.
Oil less – a floating rare earth magnet and two proprietary synthetic diaphragms are the only moving parts, which means no pistons, bearings or other wear items.
Built in safety switch – FujiMAC air pumps all feature a reliable electrical circuit breaker. The resettable switch will interrupt pump power in the event of a diaphragm failure to prevent internal damage. This allows a simple and quick rebuilt rather than pump replacement.
Easy maintenance – FujiMAC pumps can be rebuilt in approximately 15 minutes using two common hand tools.
Stable air flow – FujiMAC performance does not degrade over time, ensuring reliable wastewater treatment. These pumps are also not subject to uneven air pulses, but instead deliver smooth even airflow.
Convenient sizes – FujiMAC pumps come in two physical sizes, and the six pumps in the model range share many internal parts, which makes stocking spares an easy task. The FujiMAC model designation indicates the pumps air production in litres per min

Bacteria Home Media

Bacteria Home media

Bacteria home is a high-quality filter medium that is made from mineral rock. This porous rock is baked at a very high temperature. It is ideally suited for a bakki shower, but can also be used in other filters.

The microscopic pores immediately ensure a rapid growth of high concentrations of bacteria, which greatly improves the water quality. The bacteria filter harmful substances such as nitrate, nitrite and ammonia from the water.

The material is very porous and slightly rough on the surface, so that the water that is sprayed over it is, as it were, polished. Because colonies of anaerobic (low-oxygen) bacteria can nest in the pores of this filter media, which take care of the conversion of nitrate to nitrogen gas, you could prefer this type of filter media to non-porous filter media.

Two types of bacteria are involved in the aerobic (oxygen-rich) conversion. The Nitrosomonas bacterium converts ammonia into nitrite and the Nitrobacter bacterium then converts nitrite into nitrate. Although nitrate does not immediately pose a health risk to fish, high doses are not desirable. High nitrate levels promote strong algae growth; this mainly occurs in the spring because the bacteria have not yet multiplied sufficiently.

Anaerobic bacteria are used to convert nitrate into nitrogen gas. This process can only take place in the absence of oxygen, i.e. at places in the filter media where little or no oxygen is present and can reach. The first step in this process is the reversal of the nitrification process. Nitrate is converted back into nitrite. The second step of the denitrification is the conversion of nitrite into nitrogen gas. (N2). This gas can then be released without causing any further damage to the environment.

Bacteria Home also provides an increased mineral and redox value. It also brings considerably more oxygen into the water than, for example, aerated bottom drains. Bacteria Home improves your water quality up to 16 times more effectively than aerated underwater filtration.
