Nu-Clear Model 533 - 30 sq. ft. 25 Micron Mechanical & Carbon Filter Information




There are different kinds of filtration systems in the market - there are mechanical filters, then there are those chemical filters, and lastly, the biological filters. Although each kind is important, it doesn't seem practical to get one of each kind. The best solution is to get one filter that has all three options, and that's the Nu-Clear Model 533 - Mechanical & Carbon Filter.

This filter has biological, chemical and mechanical filters integrated in its system. Because of the flexibility it offers, it can be used for either freshwater or saltwater tanks. It can also be used for fountains and ponds - yes, it's that flexible. For its size, this filter can be used for aquariums with a capacity of 50 to 300 gallons. For bigger tanks, you can use more than one Nu-Clear Model 533 - Mechanical & Carbon Filter systems from Pet Store and have the work side-by-side.

The Nu-Clear Model 533 - Mechanical & Carbon Filter is equipped with a 30-square foot cartridge, which is 20% bigger in terms of surface area compared to the same kind of filters. The bigger surface area allows for more dirt to be collected. It can also traps particles as small as 25 microns to ensure that only clean water gets through.

Nu-Clear 500 Series Modular Canister Filters provide the ultimate in aquatic life support systems for consumer and commercial fresh and salt water aquariums, fountains, or ponds. With several mechanical, chemical and biological options to choose from, Nu-Clear filters have the flexibility to fit all your aquarium and pond applications. The different models may be used on their own or in combination with other models to provide the ultimate in filtration systems. The Nu-Clear 500 Series Modular Canister Filters are appropriate for aquariums 50 gallons and up and for ponds 300 gallons and up.

Nu-Clear filters feature heavy duty molded PVC construction with a stainless steel lid clamp for secure leak free operation and carry a 2 year guarantee. The filter bodies are approximately 13" wide and 12.5" tall (overall width with fittings is 15”). An additional clearance of 8” above the filter is required to remove the cartridge for cleaning. Nu-Clear filters have 1" FNPT inlet and outlet ports allowing for higher flow rates (up to 1,200 gallons/hr) than similar filters with 3/4” ports. All models come with adapters for 3/4" and 1" hose, stainless steel hose clamps, pipe seal tape, and a drain valve.

MODEL 533
The ultimate aquatic filter. The 30 sq. ft. 25 micron cartridge has 20% more surface area than other similar filters. The cartridge traps particles larger that 25 microns and polishes the water crystal clear. The cartridge can be cleaned and reused. This filter will also hold 1.5 lbs of activated carbon for absorbing water yellowing compounds and other dissolved organics. Includes pressure gauge and 1.5 lbs of pre-bagged premium Inland Seas Marine and Reef Activated Carbon.

Comments: Very high quality construction. It does exactly what it claims it does and does it well. It removes particles and polishes the water. I have mine inline with my sump pump returning to my main tank. The pressure gauge lets me know when it's clogged and the clear case lets me see when it's getting dirty too.Highly recommended.

Well Crafted Micron Filter

Comments: I just set this thing up on my 150 gallon fish only tank. I have it running with a high powered UV sterilizer and it produces crystal clear water. It is very well crafted, is easy to set up, and is easy to maintain. I was also having a problem with micro bubbles that were generated in the sump from my skimmer out flow and then being pumped into the tank, and it completely solved that problem. It comes with a bag of activated carbon but you can use any equally sized media bag, so essentially it also functions as a media reactor. Overall a great filter.

Comments: BEST MECHANICAL FILTER MONEY CAN BUY PLUS THE 120 BUCKS I SPENT FOR THE PUMP A DANNER 12 BUT THAT GIVES ME PLENTY OF PUMP TO HOOK UP ANOTHER CANISTER OR TWO USING ON A OVER STOCKED CICHLAD TANK

Well Engineered Unit.

Comments: After years of experience dealing with both American and European equipment, I have to admit that from an engineering point of view, this filter is one of the best designs I have come across. It easily rivals any of the German units I used in Europe and that is saying something! The 'add on' extensions you can get for these filters is also a good idea and which makes them rather unique. I have the filter coupled to an Iwaki MD-100R(T) which is pushing through it 35 GPM and at high pressure. I'm not sure I would get away with this if it were not for the nice big 1 inch threaded ports the filter is fitted with. Also, no leaks despite the pressure. A well thought out unit.

Crystal Clear Water!

Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: Bought this as a polisher to use on my return pump to my 180G reef tank. I was having a pretty hard time with micro bubbles and this guy completely solved it. After 24 hours there is a night and day difference in my water clarity. For reference, my return pump is a Mag 12. The only reason I don't give this 5 stars is the directions that came with the pump are poorly written and have grammar mistakes.

life saver - crystal clear H2O

Comments: I didn't wash my GFO before putting it in the reactor and attatching to the tank - my tank looked like a car rusted to death in it, it was a horrible experience. After a day and a half it was barely any better. I figured I should try something I assumed was not needed on a reef tank with a sump - a canister filter. Within 2 (yeah, two) hours, my tank was crystal clear - the water clearer than pre-GFO!! I thought I was gonna have to tear down my tank and start over but this saved my life - the rocks still have a copper hue, but the water is the best it's ever been!!!

Comments: High quality filter. The only problem is that you must make sure the lid is tightened very well, or it leaks. Other than that, it is a great product.
