Sand Filters

Engineered for simplicity and ease of operation.

AAT Sand Filters provide filtration efficacy and high-quality water as effortlessly as possible day in, day out, year after year. Our proprietary design has been honed over years of R&D to create a unit that is as simple to own and operate as it is robust and durable.

Made from strong, durable, premium-grade Vinyl ester resin, AAT Sand Filters are resistant to chemical and ozone attack. They are completely free of corrosion-vulnerable metal components internally and constructed using quality fittings and valves.

AAT Sand Filters can be ordered individually or in batches and shipped to aquaria designers and constructors literally anywhere in the world. Contact us to discuss which units should be specified for your aquarium project.

VERSATILE
A range of six AAT sand filters catering for flow rates of:

36,600 litres per hour to 134,600 litres per hour for chemical filtration.
SEE THE DIFFERENCE

Aquarium operators can easily inspect the action inside through the large, transparent viewing port fitted as standard.

EFFECTIVE ENGINEERING

On entering the chamber water deflects off a plate designed and positioned distribute the flow evenly across the sand’s surface without unduly disturbing it. One piece removable septum nozzles positioned across the flat bed plenum beneath the sand help create a smooth, distributed flow.

PREMIUM AESTHETICS
AAT Sand Filters help create an LSS infrastructure that is visually attractive because premium-looking equipment is more likely to get the care, attention and respect it deserves from operators and maintenance personnel.
