The Eheim 2213 Canister Filter has a
compact pump coupled with a large volume canister for filter media. The filter
is for aquariums up to 55 gallons with a maximum pump performance of 116 gph and
delivery head of 4 foot and 11 inches. It is extremely quiet, durable and long
lasting. It provides high pump output and effective use of filter media for
fresh or saltwater aquariums.
The "Full Space" design of Eheim's canister allows it to large amounts of filter
media while making it more versatile. The filter comes complete with a safety
hose-connection system to stop separation, all the filter medias needed to set
up the filter, intake and outtake tubes, and double isolating valves. The Eheim
2213 is UL and CSA listed.
EHFIMECH should be used at the bottom suction area. It provides mechanical
filtration. Next is a Coarse Filter Pad. The next layer of EHFISUBSTRAT will act
as the main biological filter medium. The substrate's high porousity is ideal
for bacteria colonization and ensures unbeatable long term decomposition of
Ammonia and Nitrites. Next is a Fine Filter Pad and a carbon pad. Chemi-pure can
be used as a replacement for the Carbon Pad for chemical filtration for
freshwater aquariums. Depending upon the desired water quality, the layers of
filter media can be increased. Specific water treatment can also be achieved
with an individual filter media arrangement.
Filter: 6" diameter x 13" high
Tubing: 494 (1/2") tubing for intake and outtake.
