The M140P (pressurised) will both cater for heavy stocked ponds up to 14,000 gallons (63,000 litres). These impressive units are approx 2000mm high (80″) with a 110mm core (4″) containing 12kg of silica sand. The M140 model requires a 1/4hp pump (similar to that used on the Cloverleaf Junior Pondvac) with an operational flow rate of around 1,400gph. Remaining pipe specification of M140P is similar to the M70P. The M140P will support up to 200kg (440lb) of fish load.
The Cloverleaf Fluidised Bed Type M140P is well made – nicely finished and of course they work very well. They are easy to install and control and they have their own built in slide valve to enable you to set the desired flow rate.
If you need that additional biological filtration to enhance your own system without having to increase, or replace your existing filtration system then these Fluid Bed Filters are for you. However, please bear in mind that they are recommended to SUPPLEMENT your existing biological system.
