  • New AMA ZEOvit filter Design - 3 chambers!

    AMA Multifilter Nr.1

    Hmmm.. what do you guys think about this one? It says it can be used for ZEOvit or any phosphate media. Looks like a design where upgrading is easily accomplished.

    Edward, the only thing I wonder about that desiqn is when you go to clean the zeoliths, you would have to somehow shove the pipe back through the stones on the downward stroke. Its a sweet looking reactor though

    Tank Specs:60g Cube SPS/Clam tank, ASM G1x Skimmer, DIY ZEOvit Reactor, 1x400w EVC 14k, Marine Life Aquatics CR-250 CaRx (RIP)

    Not sure yet.....Build Thread to come!

      AMA have really nice products but man are they pricey ,140 euro cost smallest model,without pump.And IIRC,is not 3 chamber but only one,I think second pictures are just explain how you can connect them in line.
      They put on the market new reef bond,reef cement .Much stronger and better then epoxy,of course expensive as well.

        Looks very interesting. Is it fluidized? I thought phosphate reactors were fluidized. At least the deltec are.

          doesn't look like there is any way to pump the stones. But what if you had reactors similar to that design, but were connected at the top of one to the bottom of the other - that would still allow for pumping and water flowing up through the stones.

            Very nice good idea also tonka isnt there something new your working on Madison ?

              I think it wouldn't be that hard to create a reactor similar to that for ZEO, but that idea wouldn't be so user friendly.

              A smaller reactor with an inner chamber , then like Tonka mentioned, connect the top to the bottom of the next. The only thing is, you'd loss alot of water movement towards the end.

              Edit : Yeah, because the chambers wouldn't be pressurized, you'd lose something like 50% flow from chamber to chamber.

                I'm always working on something new

                I have made dual chamber reactors but never a triple. The problem I see with making more than two chambers is the amount of flow needed and the loss of flow from chamber to chamber. When I make a dual chamber I use one pump that is "T'd" off and split evenly to both chambers. I can currently make each chamber hold 6 liters of media. The only problem is the pump expense. In order to keep the expenses down I have been using two pumps (eheim 1262) for reactors that big.
