Stagnant water is not healthy for aquatic creatures
, both plants and animals. Stagnant water does not move at all, so there is no circulation going on. Food, supplements, and other substances added in will just sink to the bottom of the tank, failing to nourish the fish. Oxygen does not circulate, too, so there`s not enough of it going around in the water.
Water in aquariums need to circulate, which is why a water pump should be an essential purchase when you build an aquarium. A powerful, efficient and quiet water pump is the best choice, and the Iwaki MD55RLT Water Pump (Japanese Motor) is all that, and more from Pet Store
This pump`s distinctive green and white colors are seen in many aquariums. It is such a popular choice because it is magnetic, and thus can run for longer, stays cooler, and is generally quieter compared to other kinds of pumps. You don`t have to worry about it breaking down soon, overheating or causing a racket. Also, installation is fast and easy - just plug it and it`s ready to go.
The Iwaki MD55RLT Water Pump (Japanese Motor) is made from durable and high-quality materials that will last for a long time. These materials are also safe, so it won`t contaminate the water.
Magnetic water pumps. Magnetic driven. Sealess pumps for use on fresh or saltwater aquariums. Low heat exchange. Highly durable design. WMD pumps have American Made Motors. MD pumps have Japanese Made Motors. RLT pumps are for pressure applications. RLXT pumps are for circulation and wet/dry return.
Iwaki Walchem magnetic drive pumps will run longer, quieter and cooler than any traditional mag drive. Extraordinarily high efficiencies make WMD & MD the clear choice in almost every process, recirculation or transfer application.Unique internal Cooling Circuit
Creates a positive, forced cooling path, lubricating bearing surfaces and actively purging gases & heat. Unique double bearing system allows cooling circuit liquid to continually "wash" front and rear radial bearings, extending bearing life.Precision Tolerances
Pumps can be supplied with alumina ceramic or SiC spindles, bored, turned and highly polished. This precision machined spindle forms the center of the driven magnet. Substantially reduced hydraulic noise is a major feature of all WMD/MD impellers. Great pains are taken in the molding/finishing process to eliminate tangential misalignment.Bearings/Thrust surfaces
High lubricity fluoropolymer bearings minimize mechanical losses typical of conventional mag drive pumps. High purity SiC radial bearings handle the most aggressive ultrapure chemistries. PTFE front thrust surface aids hydraulic balance and minimizes flashing. Large rear thrust surface guards against axial forces caused by cavitation or gas entrapment.Drive magnet
Dynamically balanced barium ferrite drive magnets provide best magnet torque. Die cast magnet carrier creates a flywheel effect, which adds to the magnet safety factor.Motor matching
Offering more standard motor/pump configurations than other manufacturers offer for tailored pump applications. Premium, high efficiency motors are used throughout the line. Totally enclosed, permanent split capacitor motors are compact, cool and economical. Tolerance to voltage variation without overheating and 50/60 Hz operation allow the product to be used in a worldwide market.Note: Power outlet plug NOT included.
