series Calcium Media Reactors, is the culmination of all the best
element of current CaRx technologies with the addition of our signature
Reef Dynamics components, specifically the JAM-LOC and the venturi/
pinwheel impeller assembly.
The addition of these components makes
these Calcium reactors the ultimate design in terms of
ease of use and efficiency.
The JAM-LOC alone makes adding and
changing media virtually effortless. No more endless spinning of
thumbscrews or unions. Simply twist 1/8 of a rotation and lift!
two-way Bleed/CO2 Re-Circulation valve is an awesome innovation. One
side of the valve allows the user to easily bleed off excess gas in the
reactor which makes the reactor a snap to get running. No more tipping
the reactor or shaking it to release trapped gas.
The flip side of
the two-way valve is the control for the CO2 recirculation loop. This
allows the user to make optimal use of CO2 gas by re-circulating it with
the reactor. It also allows for the control of that flow. If the valve
is left in the middle position, it simply bypasses both features,
allowing you to run the reactor without a re-circulation of CO2 gas if
The use of the Pinwheel impeller is perfect for a
calcium reactor as it provides an excellent way to atomize the CO2 gas.
The smaller surface area of the smaller bubbles makes it easier for them
to dissolve in the water and therefore acidify the water being
processed by the reactor. This in turn maximizes the efficacy of the gas
being injected into the reactor that results in a decrease in CO2 usage
and savings to the consumer.
To top it off, we provide a
Venturi/Reducer valve on the pump intake manifold that results in enough
suction to effectively pull water to the reactor so that an auxiliary
feed pump is not required in most cases. If the reactor is being set up
remotely from the aquarium, a feed pump may be required.
