Aquariums do not necessarily need water pump. As long as you keep the water clean and changed on a regular basis, everything should work out perfectly, right? In a way, yes. But if you are an enthusiastic aquarium owner, you'll want to do things right and give your pets only the very best. So yes, you'll get a water pump.
What do water pumps do? They circulate water in the tanks, and in turn, this action encourages circulation of oxygen, which promotes healthy growth of aquatic plants and animals
. Aside from this very helpful function, water pumps also form continuous bubbles, giving your aquariums a livelier look.
The Iwaki WMD40RLXT Water Pump from Pet Store
is an excellent choice. Made from very durable material, this pump's seal-less design can be used for both freshwater and seawater environments. Because it is magnetic, it generates low heat. The cooling paths cyclically purges out heat in the form of hot gases. Thus, water temperature is hardly affected at all.
The Iwaki WMD40RLXT Water Pump also runs much quieter and expected to last longer than traditional water pumps. In the rare event that ir does need to have a little bit of repair, Iwaki offers excellent warranty coverage - and it's just one phone call way.
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.
Flow Rate @ 4` Head: 1200 GPH
