Get the Korallin C-1502 Calcium Reactor without pump from Pet Store
to produce calcium hydrogen carbonate fast and efficiently. This product is simply designed and structured ,but it is powerful in creating the necessary balance of carbonic acid. With these features, it is able to keep your aquariums pH level
and its dKH at optimum levels. Aside from that, this calcium reactor is combined with a CO2 System. Because of this, you can just sit back in your home and watch as the reactor does all the work needed. Thus, it is maintenance-free equipment, which is very convenient to be utilized.
Although the whole set up of Korallin C-1502 Calcium Reactor without pump and media is expensive, it will actually help you budget in the future. This is due to the fact that a 5 lbs CO2 refill for your calcium reactor can costs about $12 that will last for up to 1.5 years. While, purchasing 7 kg of CaCO3 media that is about $42 and good for 2 refills, will only last 1 year.
With this product you dont have to do calcium dosing every day. Plus, there will be no chance for excess CO2 to escape in your system, so you will also not need a pH controller.
The already best-selling Kalkreaktor (Calcium Reactor) in Germany has become even better. It completely replaces Kalkwasser, 1 or 2-part Calcium/Buffer powder & liquid dosing. The new and improved Korallin kalkreaktor allows a simple, elegant and high efficiency production of calcium hydrogen carbonate including the necessary balanced carbonic acid. Sit back and watch your aquarium`s pH and dKH being kept at optimum levels. Together with our reliable CO2 System, this is the most maintenance-free Kalkreaktor setup in the world.
Ca2+ + 2HCO3 = Ca(HCO3)2 = CaCO3 + H2CO3 Calcium + Hydrogen Carbonate =
Calcium Hydrogen Carbonate = Calcium Carbonate + Carbonic Acid
A Kalkreaktor setup (ie: one with CO2 System and CaCO3 media) is expensive only at the beginning. You save money in the long term because a 5-pound CO2 refill ($12) lasts you 1.5 years on our Kalkreaktor (and only ours) while a 7-kg CaCO3 media ($42 and good enough for 2 refills) lasts you up to 1 year! And no more tedious daily Calcium dosing. A pH Controller is not required for our Kalkreaktor because there is no chance for the excessive CO2 to escape into your system like ALL other brands on the market. A pH Monitor is a nice equipment to have for fast pH measuring. Though pH Test Kit and pH Pen-monitor can still be used for this purpose.
The internal recirculation flow rate of the C-1502 is around 80 g/h. Since that this is a pressurized Kalkreaktor, the dissolution of the media by the carbonized water is enhanced. The effluent rate is only about 0.25 g/h at 40 drops/min. Thus explaining the efficient CO2 & media use. CO2 is being introduced into the Eheim powerhead directthis is the most efficient Aspirating-Venturi method.
