Product: Aqua Medic 41075 Nitratreductor NR-1000
Denitrification filter for aquariums up to 1000 litres (c. 250 gallons)
The Nitratreductor is an anaerobic biological reactor for removing nitrates from marine and freshwater aquaria. It has a 10 l (c. 4.5 gals) volume and an internal circulation pump.
The Nitratereductor works with a flow rate of 1 to 4 l/hr (c. 0.25 to 1 gph). In the absence of oxygen this situation promotes bacteria that metabolize nitrate. Denimar powder or Deniballs are used as an organic energy source. The Nitratereductor is a closed unit that can be integrated into filter systems, but may also be installed to stand alone under the aquarium.
To monitor this process, it is possible to use a redox potential controller (ORP controller) in conjunction with an electrode inserted in the inbuilt PG13.5 port or the SP 3000 Dosing Pump (supplied) can be connected for a fully controlled system.
Dimensions excluding electrode (l x w x h): 17 x 17 x 54 cm (c. 7” x 7” x 22”)
Accessories: Denimar powder and Deniballs to feed the anaerobic bacteria
Aqua Medic mV Controller or Aqua Medic mV Computer c/w pressure resistant mV (Redox or ORP) probe with PG13.5 threaded connection.
