The Marineland Emperor 280 Filter is designed with advanced technology that effectively and efficiently provides all three necessary filtration elements - mechanical, chemical, and most importantly, biological filtration for both freshwater and saltwater aquariums. Mechanical filtration traps solid debris like uneaten food and fish waste in the dense microfiber insert. For chemical filtration, each cartridge is packed with Black Diamond Premium Activated Carbon. The filter also includes a refillable media container that can hold an additional amount of Black Diamond Carbon, White Diamond Ammonia Neutralizing Crystals, or Diamond Blend. The patented BIO-Wheel is the best biological filter, as it serves as the ideal culture site for the growth and proliferation of beneficial bacteria responsible for nitrification in aquatic environments.
The Emperor 280 features a revolutionary two pump design. They send water in two different directions through the filter to provide balanced filtration. The Flow Pump routes water through the filter cartridge which provides mechanical and chemical filtration. The BIO-Pump pressurizes and sends a stream of pre-filtered water through the spray bar to power-drive the BIO-Wheel. The filter also features an adjustable Spray Bar Knob that can be turned up or down to change angle or water flow when feeding.
