The element™ Ca Reactor provides and maintains a virtually constant calcium, magnesium and alkalinity ratio, which is critical to the long term success of reef aquaria. The element™ Ca Reactor functions by using CO2 to react with a calcium reactor media such as Seachem’s Reef Reactor™. CO2 acidifies the water flowing through the reactor and thereby dissolves the media which releases calcium, magnesium, carbonates among other elements and components of the chosen reactor media. A CO2 filled tank along with a pH probe and preferably a CO2 controlling system are required and/or highly recommended for proper functionality of the element™ Ca Reactor.
The inner chamber can be removed without full breakdown making it easy to clean, change or top off media
Make full use of CO2 injection by recirculating it using the element™ Ca's CO2recycling feature. This also offers potential savings on the cost of CO2canisters and refills
The reactor chamber can hold up to 1.2 Liters of your choice of calcium reactor media (e.g. Seachem Reef Reactor™)
Easily control the release of dissolved media into the aquarium. The water can be directed back into the sump, directly to the aquarium, or even a protein skimmer such as the aquavitro® division™ series .
Allows for rapid response by controllers to avoid over-shooting CO2 injection. Saves CO2 and allows for consistent and efficient dosing
Allows for higher column flow volume with more contact time and surface area. Allows for easy maintenance of the pump at anytime.
The element™ M Reactor is a filter media reactor that allows for the use of virtually any type of filter media in either fluidized or non-fluidized flow - including fine particle media such as resins. The element™ M Reactor allows for excellent efficient reaction with consistent even flow from the bottom of the reactor to the top. Using the adjustable internal plate, filter media can even be separated to allow for various uses within the same reactor. The element™ M Reactor features a by-pass valve which allows for fine flow regulation for even the most delicate media such as beaded resins.
The separation plate can be moved up and down which allows you to run any amount of media in a compacted fashion, preventing sheering of media
The reactor chamber can hold up to 1.2 Liters of your choice of filtration media
Offers highly controlled flow rate for running any type of media at any speed (even resins such as Seachem Purigen® or purfiltrum™) .
The included addition of a fine filter sock finish acts as a fine mechanical filter so no media particles escape into system. It also prevents micro bubbles from being released into the aquarium to irritate corals
The element™ M and element™ Z have added versatility in positioning the return spillway. So depending on the size of your sump and placement of other equipment, you can always find a good fit.
