Fluval UVC In-Line Clarifier
Quickly and efficiently clear your aquarium, with this simple addition to your filtration system. The Fluval UVC In-Line Clarifier can be added to almost any canister filter, and will eliminate suspended bacteria and algae particles with your tank water, keeping it clear and healthy.
This is chemical-free, and doesn't affect beneficial bacteria, but instead using DNA-destroying UVC light emissions to attach cloudy and green water. The unit itself is compact and will easily fit in most aquarium cabinets. This Clarifier will help to maintain a clear and healthy environment for your fish, purifying water with a chemical-free and maintenance-free way, whilst also helping live plants to thrive by combating pesky cynobacteria which can often cause plant devastation. The prevention of cloudy or green water means your tank will be looking at its' best at all times, and is suitable for all aquariums, from freshwater, saltwater, and even reptile enclosures, like turtle tanks.
This uses long-lasting Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp (CCFL) technology, using optimum UVC wavelength at its' peak effectiveness, with a 30,000hr bulb lifespan, all whilst being energy efficient with a 4 - 24hr time included, so you can choose to use this intermittently if required.
This is designed for use with the Fluval 06 and 07 Series filter canisters, but will install onto any canister with filter hosing with an internal diameter of 5/8" (16mm), and can be used in either direction, so no need to relocate any current filtration set up, taking just minutes to install in-line.
The unit itself measures at 6.25 x 5 x 2.5" (16 x 13 x 6.6cm), so is compact and easy to fit in almost any location, weighing in at less than 300g. It uses only 3w power, and comes with a 6ft /1.9m power cord, with a 930l/h max flow rate.
The Fluval UVC was built with economy and sustainability in mind from the beginning, with the unit featuring a very compact design with a highly efficient CCFL UVC bulb that lasts up to 3 times longer than a traditional UVC lamp. As traditional bulbs need to be replaced every 6-9 months, the Fluval CCFL bulb is expected to last for several years. As a result, its carbon footprint is much smaller over its lifespan than using a comparable UVC Clarifier and buying a replacement bulb every 6 months. The low 3 wattage power means that during a typical 3 year lifespan (or longer if the unit is not run continuously and set to run at intervals with the included timer) the Fluval UVC will save you up to £60 in electricity cost and up to 100kg of CO2 emissions, compared to a typical traditional unit which can consume up to 5 times as much power. Furthermore, the Fluval UVC Clarifier's plastic housing is recyclable, making it an environmentally friendly alternative, which is ideal for aquariums up to 400l, of any type.
