With the Mk5 Deltec Fluidised Calcium Reactor, fluidising the smaller grains of media ensures that the whole of the surface is always available for reaction with the low PH water within the chamber. On a standard non-fluidising reactor the water always finds the easiest route through the media ad forms channels or tracks which can result in only a small area of the surface being utilised.
Deposits of fine media build-up within a standard reactor which choke up the pathways further and require regular maintenance and cleaning out to maintain a reasonable level of efficiency. With the Deltec reactors, the fines are kept in suspension and pushed out of the chamber with the water which means that the media never needs to be emptied out and cleaned but simply topped up. Deltec Calcium Reactors can also be used with conventional larger non-fluidising media or large grain coral gravel.
Please note a CO2 Bottle, Regulator, Solenoid and Bubble counter will need to be purchased separately. Water can be supplied by running a feed from an existing pump, such as a main return pump or with the use of a dosing pump suitable for continuous running.
