Greetings from Innovitech with the X Filter, the most advanced mechanical roller filter

Greetings to the forum!

I would like to introduce ourselves. We are a startup with one goal, to bring to the hobby innovative products with the use of state of the art technology (here comes the name "Innovitech")

It all begun from a DIY project on roller filters where I found there we some gaps in the market to offer me a product based on my needs. There was a request from fellow hobbyists to take this further and bring to market a product to fit their needs and we thought it was a good idea!

The background of the people involved in this project in many ways, are proper engineers and scientists from different disciplines. The R&D process took many inputs and we even had a testing program which was consisted by fellow reefers with a genuine passion in this hobby. All R&D and prototyping took place solely in the UK.

The goal and what has been achieved now, is to bring the most advanced automatic mechanical filter to market, starting with two models. We are not here to create competition with other manufacturers, we are here to close the gap in the market and produce a high end filter which will be on the high end of the price range as well.

The first one is the X Filter 1.0. The 1.0 has the smallest footprint within the sump container than any other filter, but can also support flows up to 6000lph and has successfully supported systems up to 1000L. This filter is designed for sumps with tight spaces.

The X Filter 1.7 pushes the limits even further, providing flows and system supports that no other manufacturer has ventured for,

Some key features of the X Filter lineup:

  • Solid state water level sensor, manufactured in the UK with custom firmware embedded
  • Multiple media grade support, the first device to support all these grades, ranging at 9 microns (!), 17 microns, 25 microns and 32 microns
  • No plumbing required! The unit has it's own overflow section. Simply dump in the standpipes or flex pipes into the unit. Up to 2x 40mm or 1x 50mm for the X Filter 1.0 or up to 3x 40mm or 2x 50mm for the X Filter 1.7
  • The longest media available in the market. 65 metres of media on all grades!
  • Innovative panel design (that's where the X comes from), that helped us to support these high flows
  • Vortex generating bypass controllers: A very smart design to allow the unit to bypass some of the water, without allowing detritus to pass through them and get filtered out for better media usage at high flows
  • Modular design: The unit can be installed with the main body which is fully submersible and install electronics and fleece section post installation.
  • Advanced alarm in case of a jam, sump water level increase if return is shut off etc.
The are some of the features but more to come on release which is very soon.

Here are some pictures of the preproduction version of the X Filter 1.0. The production versions of the X Filter 1.0 and X Filter 1.7 will be presented on official announcement.







More information to come on release. The production version has many improvements and the 1.7 is a major game changer!


Thank you,
