BIO-ACTIF REACTOR 5000
Ventilated bioreactor system for reducing nutrient concentrations in aquariums
Due to its compact size, the BIO-ACTIF REACTOR 5000 can be easily positioned over the filter sump or the aquarium.
The capacity of the reactor is dimensioned for 5 l of filter material, so it is suitable for aquariums holding up to 1500 liters to reduce nutrient concentrations. Water flows around the reactor chamber without channeling, guaranteeing optimum availability of oxygen for microbiological processes of the fill material. Hence, anaerobic conditions are prevented and ammonium, among other things, is eliminated as quickly as possible.
Optimal results are achieved when used in combination with biodegradable Tropic Marin® NP-BACTO-TRICKS.
• Lighter and brighter colour of corals due to the effective removal of ammonium and other nutrients from the water • Improvement of water quality, so that fishes and corals are more resistant to disease and live longer • Compensation of nutrient fluctuations and increase in biological and chemical stability in the aquarium • Improvement of food supply to diverse organisms within and outside the reactor chamber • Air slits and special baffle plates in the cover ensure the required exchange of gas and the supply of oxygen • Reactor capacity for 5 l of material. Water flows around the reactor chamber without channelling, guaranteeing optimum availability of oxygen for microbiological processes of the fill material • Hence, anaerobic conditions are prevented and ammonium, among other things, is eliminated as quickly as possible • Suitable for universal use • Diameter about 24 cm; Height approx. 39 cm • Should the filter material become clogged, the water will drain via the integrated safety overflow
How to use:
We recommend using Tropic Marin® NP-BACTO-TRICKS as fill material for the BIO-ACTIF REACTOR 5000. The ventilated bioreactor can also be used with zeolite or other molecular sieves. Please observe the corresponding manufacturer’s specifications. We recommend operating the BIO-ACTIF REACTOR 5000 at a flow rate of approx. 1500 l/h (using a SICCE SYNCHRA SILENT 1.5, for example; a circulation pump is not included in the delivery).
The inlet of the filter can be connected via a ½“ female thread on the cover to PVC tubing (not included in delivery).
Please also refer to the instruction manual for BIO-ACTIF REACTOR 5000.
