Korallin BioDenitrator w/ Eheim 1048 Pump Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

Part #: KL9111K

Feature(s):
  • Large internal volume with a small footprint
  • Optimal efficiency through high internal recirculation and fast Nitrate removal
  • Top-loading lid with detachable tubes for easy maintenance
  • No feeding liquid required!
  • Ultra-pure Sulfur (Sulphur) filling 99.9%
This revolutionary design makes denitrifaction easy and efficient. Feeding to the bacteria is not necessary; just put the unit into your system and let it run for a few weeks, denitrafication power will be activated once the unit is broken in.

The design is based around the C-1502 reactor and combine Sulfur (Sulphur) media with calcareous media to offer a high level of Nitrate removal. The recirculation method is far more efficient than simple single pass filters. As it includes reactor media, the pH is fully buffered and enriched with calcium before being returned to the tank.

With the build quality of the S-1501 reactor and recirculation, these offer very efficient nitrate removal. After a running in time of approximately 3-4 weeks (for the bacteria to colonize the chamber) this unit will, for example, reduce 100 liters with 50mg NO3 to 0 in 3-4 days.

Because this denitrator makes use of the design of Calcium Reactor C1502, once the nitrate problem has been solved, you can easily turn this denitrator into a Calcium Reactor with some additional parts (sold separately).

Comes with 1.6kg high grade pure Sulfur (Sulphur) and calciumcarbonat.

Korallin S-1502 - Rated for up to 250 gal. Reactor height: approx. 15.75"; Diameter: 4.50"; Footprint diameter: 6.30"; Included filter media: 6lbs; Eheim 1048 Pump.

More Info:

The Use of Sulfur (Sulphur) Denitrators
Over the last few years, Sulfur (Sulphur) denitrators have grown in popularity in Europe from humble beginnings in public aquaria to being used in cutting edge integrated filter systems.

Existing Methods
Before we recommend a new process to customers, we make sure we have tested them ourselves on our own systems. We have long held the view that if you design a natural system with the management of nutrients in mind, nitrate and phosphate can be almost forgotten. But with all the best laid plans, you often end up with excess nutrients. These may be due to a higher load of fish or inefficiency in the system’s denitrification abilities. Either way; even the best systems can end up with a nagging 10-20ppm of residue nitrate. The options currently available to resolve excess nitrate would normally take the route of increasing water changes, adding more live rock, or increasing things like the deep sand beds or adding mangroves.

An option that many people have tried is the slow flow denitrator. These rely on anaerobic bacteria, colonising a suitable medium and the flow of water being slow enough, to become depleted of oxygen to create an environment they can thrive in. These bacteria will then multiply and consume the nitrate in the low oxygen water. If well set-up this method can be quite successful.

Enter Sulfur (Sulphur) Denitrators
Guy Martin from Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Rennes did the original work on fresh water treatments plants, although the science may pre-date this. The work was transferred to the marine environment and used by Michel Hignette, curator of the MAAO aquarium. A pilot project was launched. Since then the experiment was done on a much bigger scale, at the MAAO, as well as in the Grand Aquarium in Saint-Malo. All of these systems have been a great success and the systems have proved a real boon in large scale aquariums where the management of nitrate is often an after thought, when feeding displays stocked with large fish with voracious appetites. After these successes, there have been many Sulfur (Sulphur) denitrators added to private aquariums across the continent.



  • Simple to set-up and manage.
  • Needs no additional feeding with carbon based foods.
  • Works well without the cost of additional electronic control.
  • Will supply additional calcium to the tank when used as per instructions.
  • Units can be ran in series for management of higher nitrate levels.
  • Long lasting: up to 2-3 years.
  • Units can be easily refilled.

Excellent to reduce Nitrates Product Review by George (Posted on 2/26/14)
Rating
Great!

Comments: Although I don't have very high levels of Nitrates(usually between 10-20ppm), I was able to reduce my nitrate levels down to 2ppm in one week. 1 negative thing: very difficult assembling instructions.

Initial review Product Review by Bob (Posted on 2/26/14)

Great!

Comments: Assembly and setup was easy after doing a little reading and understanding how this unit works. Even after soaking and rinsing unit several times still had glue/plastic smell. What I did was set unit up and ran it for first 24hrs on 5 gal container of water removed from tank during water change, After 24hrs. moved it to tank. On intake side, I drilled 1/4 hole in center of 3" piece of 3/4 PVC. Put input tubing in the small hole. Cut foam that came with pump into two small plugs and stuck one in each end of the PVC as a filter. This also acted as an anchor to hold the input below the waterline. I will update review as bacteria builds.

0 Nitrates! Product Review by ERIC SHELSY (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: I have been running my Korallin BioDenitrator w/ Eheim 1048 Pump for 10 Months now. I don't remember what my No3 level was but it was high. I tried a fluidized reactor with biopellets (Reef Octopus)for a year and it did not work. After a couple of weeks with the Korallin BioDenitrator w/ Eheim 1048 Pump I was down to 0 Nitrates! 1 drip per second. I do use an air pump rather than siphonage, I keep it right on the same level as my sump. I did have a friend who needed a new home for his Lionfish before he went on vacation. I wasnt prepared to take it with me and aclimate it. I brought the fish home and left it in the opened bag in my sump and let the Korallin BioDenitrator w/ Eheim 1048 Pump drip into the bag. Dead Fish! rookie mistake just don't do what I did. Awesome Product.+ you can convert it later to a cal. reactor very nice.

Works, but finicky! Product Review by DAVID BROWN (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: I have had this product for over a year now. I've had my doubts at times that it is doing anything, but I can't deny that all the algae in my tank has died and never returned. The effluent output is definitely nitrate free! The trick is to keep an eye on the effluent output flow. You can definitely tell that it has anoxic bacteria colonized on the sulfur because at times you get hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg) odor coming from the effluent, which means you need to up the flow. I have cleaned the unit out completely, twice, because the effluent flow decreases as the media in the reactor becomes covered with detritus and bacteria to where I can't even get a constant flow, just a few drips. It has also saved my tank from a few fish deaths behind the live rock causing an algae burst. It's not a magic bullet, you still must do regular water changes and run phosphate remover. If you can afford it then it is a useful tool! Make sure the water intake is in a region with LOW oxygen concentration. Definitely not after an ozonator or in an area of high flow!

Just get it! Product Review by SCOTT (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: I hesitated buying this. It was expensive, and I wasn't sure it would do the job. But after countless water changes that wouldn't lower my nitrates I thought I would give it a chance. Man am I ever glad I did. This thing is amazing! Setup took longer than it should, the instructions could be better. Once done I just let it cook for a couple of weeks, nitrates coming out of it were zero after about a week. After the second week my tank started to drop. And pretty much plummeted to zero within days after that! If you have a nitrate problem, try water changes first. If that doesn't work then I can't recommend this device enough.
