Round Matala Filter Media

Round Matala Filter Media

Round Media by Matala,  Cartridges for Round Filter Tanks

Introducing Round Media by Matala, the perfect "drop in" media for Vortex filters and barrel filters.

Round Media by Matala has the same qualities as the sheets of Matala in a coiled pre-cut cartridge. Simply select the diameter roll and the density you need for your round tank and drop it in. Round Media by Matala will naturally wedge in place without any need for support.

NO CUTTING, NO WASTE, NO HASSLE!


Four sequential densities can be perfectly employed to achieve maximum solids / biofiltration.

Each roll is 6 inches thick with a tremendous potential to trap dirt and yet is super easy to clean. Simply drain the waste out your bottom drain and gently pour pond water over the Round Media by Matala.

The open structure of the media provides excellent flow-through without channeling. Since most round tanks are also rather tall you can stratify the Round Media by Matala in sequential layers to make best use of the chamber.

NO DEAD ZONES, NO CHANNELING!

Look no further!
This is the absolute best filter media for round filter tanks!
R-Matala is the only filter media MADE for Vortex Filter Systems!

Black Matala

The Black Matala can be used as a support grate for other layers of media due to it's very sturdy and open design. In a settling chamber the Black will slow down and trap very large particles and hair algae.

When you use the Black or Green Matala for solids filtering you may use the garden hose to spray clean them. The dirt falls off very easily.

Green Matala

The Green Matala can follow thereby trapping a medium size particle. Both Green and Black clean out very easily by simply shaking the pieces out before draining the sump. When you use the Black or Green Matala for solids filtering you may use the garden hose to spray clean them. The dirt falls off very easily.

A good biofilter needs a lot of surface area with open spaces between for good aerated water flow. A high surface area is useless if the passageways are so small that water flow cannot penetrate.

Blue Matala

The Blue Matala will filter out a much smaller particle and yet still maintain good flow distribution. In larger systems all four types can be used in sequence to essentially remove all solids.

Matala is a progressive filter media that is self supporting and multifunctional. Used for prefiltering, mechanical filter media, biological filtration, spawning mat, plant protection, and as a support for other filter medias. Uniquely versatile, Matala is easy to work with and can fit most all filtration needs.

Grey Matala

The Gray Matala will filter out a much smaller particle and yet still maintain good flow distribution. In larger systems all four types can be used in sequence to essentially remove all solids. The rounded or rolled media can be used in round tanks.

Matala works perfectly with upflow filter designs. All you do is grab an individual piece and shake it up and down to clean it. If your filter chamber is packed to tight, take out one piece first.

Super High Density

The Gray Matala Filter mats will filter out a much smaller particle and yet still maintain good flow distribution. In larger systems all four types can be used in sequence to essentially remove all solids.

Matala media works perfectly with upflow filter designs. The ideal configuration would be the Matala filter media stood vertically rather than flat. This allows for easier cleaning. All you do is grab an individual piece and shake it up and down to clean it. If your filter chamber is packed to tight, take out one piece first.

Laid flat you will have to remove all the pieces to get to the bottom dirty piece. Stagger your vertical pieces with different Matala mat densities to achieve better solids removal or better biological filtering depending on the tank capacity. A Green piece next to a Grey piece for example will give good flow around the Grey one and trap solids in the Green one.
