Resin reactors are a model new idea in reef aquarium water therapy being promoted by Hmahli Marine Life Help Programs, specifically designed to be used with the Blue Life USA line of resins. Chemical medias resembling activated carbon, granular ferric oxide and aluminum oxide are an essential software within the management of undesirable substances and vitamins within the reef aquarium.
Extra not too long ago, a brand new class of chemical absorption and adsorption resins are pushing the envelope of nutrient eradicating efficiency, and a few of them have the additional benefit of being regenerable. The best methodology of utilizing chemical medias within the aquarium is to actively cross a beneficiant quantity of water via filter media reactors, the likes of which have been completely coated and documented right here through the years.
Chemical resins nevertheless work higher with slower circulate via to allow extra contact and dwell time with the medias, which is the place Hmahli’s new resin media reactors are available in. The Hmahli resin reactors are available in two colours, purple or blue, and are at the moment solely being provided in a single measurement as an entire package which features a high quality Sicce pump, tubing and a 250ml container of your resin of selection. Curiously, this isn’t the primary time that Blue Life USA has pursued the idea of a resin-specific media reactors with the introduction of their Resinator reactors practically 5 years in the past.
One cool new characteristic of the Hmahli Resin Reactor is using fast disconnect john visitor fittings which permit the semi inflexible tubing to be simply put in and eliminated, and the circulate management valve can be of the John Visitor selection. Whereas these Blue Fx chemical medias are costlier up entrance in comparison with GFO or Carbon, it’s their regenerating capability that provides long run worth to utilizing them.
The Hmahli resin reactors are additionally meant to function the regenerating container whereby the energetic tumbling of the media within the regeneration fluid absolutely will improve the recharging effectivity. The whole kits are simply now starting to trickle into the U.S. aquarium market with a retail value of $209 and with a lot promise, it’s solely a matter of time till we study extra concerning the efficiency & efficacy of those novel reef aquarium media reactor.
