The X filter from Innovitech is a UK designed premium digitally controlled automatic roll filter, a highly effective water particulate filtration unit. Primarily for use in marine, tropical & freshwater aquariums to replace the use of filter socks & floss. This can be used in large display and coral propagation systems too.
The X-Filter has the capability to filter down to 9 microns with the advantage that all filtered particles are removed from the water achieving active nutrient control. Filter section is fully sealed, giving YOU the choice of whether to bypass water or not.
A a real world test program has been in effect since early 2017, the X-filter has been installed in various Marine set ups and the participants have all reported outstanding positive results.?Filter roll is 65 meters (213 ft) long available in 9, 17, 25 & 32 micron. Filter out organic waste, detritus, food, micro algae, substrate dust and other unwanted waste.
X-Filter Model 1.0 is capable of flow rates up to 7000 liters per hour depending on which grade of media is being used.
Why use the X-Filter
Stunning water clarity
Lower Nutrients P04 & NO3

32 Micron Roll included
The Innovitech X Filter is regarded as the best in its class, from the pre built ergonomic design, easy install, virtually no plumbing adjustments required, to the choice of micron filters to suit your system.With best footprint to flow ratio the X filter really is the thinking persons choice for filter rollers and sets the standard for water clarity ( The X affect )
Innovative Filter Panel Design
The “X” shape allows more surface area in a smaller footprint to support larger flows and tank sizes. In conjunction with 65 metres of media per roll, give customers peace of mind between media changes.
Modular Design, No Further Plumbing Required
The main body can be separated from the top section that holds the media and the electronics, allowing easy installation even underwater, to reach through hard standpipes. Installation is complete within minutes.
Vortex Generating Bypass Controllers
Give the option to fine tune the device to maximise use of media and support high flows without compromising water clarity.The vortex generated allows heavier particles to enter the filtering section, while allowing clearer water and microlife to exit the device
Industrial Grade Optical Level Sensor
High precision and robust solid state sensor.Provides consistent readings to maximise efficiency with pinpoint precision.
No more stuck float switches.
