Duisburg Zoo AG Drum Filter
Brazilian giant otters – Pteronura brasiliensis
The giant otter pool at the Duisburg Zoo is mechanically cleaned by Drum Filter S02-7060. The volume of the basin is about 20 000l and is circulated twice an hour at only 280w. Furthermore, two UVC TLSVG immersion emitters were installed, 110w each, to effectively prevent floating algae.
Prior to this drum filter being installed, the pool had to be cleaned once a week due to poor water quality resulting in the water having to be drained.
