Mechanical Filter Media
Mechanical filter media trap suspended matter and dirt particles. This takes place at various stages:
Firstly, before the water flows through the rest of the cleaning process, EHEIM MECH and EHEIM MECHpro provide high efficiency. EHEIM FIX is the ideal material to use as a separation layer between the mechanical and biological filter media. And for fine filtration at the end, before the water returns into the aquarium, EHEIM SYNTH is the ideal material to use.
Prefilter material and fine filtration – as a separation layer between the mechanical and biological filter media
This specially formed filter material is for use after the layer of EHEIM MECH or MECHpro. EHEIM FIX acts as a separation layer between the mechanical and biological filter media. This is where the larger dirt particles are trapped, thus removing them from the water before entry into the biologically functioning filter layers.
To fit an EHEIM external filter, we also offer EHEIM coarse filter pads to achieve the same result.
