  • Marine Concept Rotomat rotating Rxtr

    Wouldnt this reactor be great for ZEOvit?? Finally a true life picture of it. I converted Euro into American dollars and it came out to $1430.

    isn't that like the aquaconnect ca reactor???
    10x3x2 FOWLR (for now)
    RD12 return, 2 RD12 closed loop, wavebox with extension

      You know.. I just realized that Aqua Connect also has their name on this. hmmmm.. Here's an example:

        Marine Concept is producing the reactor. They sell it direct under their name, another sales branch is AquaConnect.

        As much as I have hear, the problem with the reactor is the mud which will accumulate while the rector is rotating which will be imported in the tank.

        The reactor is made for a low water flow like all CaCO2 reactors which makes it not useful for the zeo in its present construction.

          Alexander, maybe the reason why it turns into mud is because of the very fine Calcium media those people have used. What if the media was larger? I can understand if the media was fine, adn then it was exposed to air hardening into mud, but I dont see this as a problem for coarser media. ?? As for the ZEOvit, its a possibility that the holes can be made larger on both the inlets and outs. If that was the case, then PVC plumbing may need to be used. Just some thoughts.

            Edward, I think the diameter of the coral gravel does not play a roll. The reactor is rotating all the time and you will have mechanical abrasion autonomous of the used material. I have seen the reactor at a friend of mine some years ago, maybe in the meantime this problem is fixed ?

            Bachirs friend is using this reactor, maybe he can tell us something about it.

            Sure, it would be possible to use larger holes and thicker pipes, but I think it would not be easy to push the water trough the reactor while it is not filled 100 % with zeolite. Most of the water will pass the reactor above the zeolite. For a zeolite reactor the diameter of the reactor camber is too wide to provide a constant water flow trough all the zeolite material which is necessary.
