The AquaPLC is a must have for any drum filter operator. By implementing the AquaPLC we were able to reduce our spraydown water consumption by about 90%. Before the AquaPLC we had 200 spraydowns each day for each drum. Now we average 15 each day per drum. For our 8 drum filters we dropped from over 1 million gallons of spraydown water to just over 75,000 gallons. The AquaPLC easily pays for itself in a matter of years. Other benefits include the ability to import drum filter operational statistics and remote controls with ease
I have enjoyed working with Integrated Aqua on the Organismal Research Facility Project. Their shop drawings were really detailed renderings that allowed us as a team to understand the complex systems months in advance. The construction drawings package was easy to follow and they tagged the shipments to correlate with the drawings which really helped in receiving and installing the various systems.
Jon from Integrated Aqua has been great to work with. If anyone is interested in working with drum filters or Prominent Controllers, he is the person to talk to
“Integrated Aqua is a reliable source of specialized aquaculture equipment components and systems. IAS has a creative approach to solving specific design challenges and is very reliable in following through with delivery and after sales service. I recommend Integrated Aqua for any complex or simple aquaculture project equipment needs.”
“Integrated Aqua undertook a challenging and complicated custom project and pulled it off brilliantly. I highly recommend Integrated Aqua to anyone thinking of building aquatics facilities.”
“Integrated Aqua Systems did a fantastic job designing a new life support system to meet the needs of our facility. We went from an extremely outdated and piece-meal system, to a brand new one with all the ‘bells & whistles’. Thanks to the IAS team for doing such a wonderful job on this project start to finish! Thousands of visitors will benefit from the hands-on learning involved with the marine life in our touch tanks for many years to come. ”
“Your company has been such a pleasure to work with. You are friendly, timely, and helpful. Our system has been working great so far. I really like the flexibility of the VFD pump drive. Since our season varies in pump demand, being able to adjust pump speed is great. We have completed our first full hatchery growing season with success…”
“We needed to replace our 260 gallon octopus husbandry system. Integrated Aqua worked with us in a thorough and professional manner to design a system that was equivalent to (but better than) what we needed to replace. Our new aquarium arrived 4 months ago, precisely on schedule, its assembly with Sam’s directions was straight-forward, and the whole system has worked like a charm.”
“It was a pleasure to work with Integrated Aqua Systems in the design and build-out of several custom RAS units for our aquaculture research facility located here in San Diego, CA. Installation was straightforward with the IAS’s detailed models and plans; build quality and function of all IAS components is excellent, and the systems have been performing very well. The flexible design of these RAS units works well with our research applications focused in both freshwater and saltwater species. We look forward to working with Integrated Aqua Systems again on future projects.”
“Integrated Aqua Systems did a fantastic job with my salmonid research facility. IAS was able to take my abstract ideas for the facility and turn them into a fully functioning, well-laid out system that is easy to use. I was especially grateful for the guidance I got from their aquatic systems designer, who flew up on short notice to provide guidance on installation and train members of my research group. I highly recommend Integrated Aqua Systems for the design and fabrication of aquatic research facilities.”
HEX™ Drum Filters represent the latest in microscreen drum filtration technology for aquaculture. The patented HEX BeeCell™ Microscreen utilizes nature’s own unique design to provide more efficient filtration than traditional filters. Advanced features included in the HEX™ Drum Filter are a culmination of 30 years of experience and development by aquaculture engineers and biologists. As a result, the HEX™ Drum Filter design has more flexibility and is more efficient with energy, water usage, cost and filtration capacity than traditional filters on the market today.
The new "X" Series drum filter is the latest refinement of HEX drum filter technology. The X series is manufactured with virtually no metal parts for the best corrosion resistance, including the elimination of metal panel straps. The X series drum filters includes reinforced plastic drum construction with longer drum models available in X2 and X3 model series to achieve better economy of scale options.
HEX™ Drum Filters are delivered in a full product range, manufactured as model X1-1 with a single panel up to F5-9 with 45 filter panels. BeeCell™ Microscreens are available from as small as 10 micron up to 1000 micron, with a flow range capacity from 44 – 22,017 gpm (10 to 5000 m3/ h) of water in each unit. There are three basic filter configurations to suit any drum filter application and many custom options are available to suit the needs of any project.
