Product: Brightwell Aquatics X-port PO4 350gr
Uses technology NanoIntelex to create an advanced material, ultra efficient, able to overcome the performance of conventional media anti phosphates up to 500%.
Removes ~ 30 - 100 mg of phosphate per 1 g of medium, the variation depends on the initial concentration of phosphates in the system.
The open structure and the large surface area increase the permeability and the effectiveness of absorption.
The greater absorption capacity translates to a lesser quantity of product and less time needed, compared to other media, to get an equal result.
The ability to remove phosphates is maintained for one year from the initial date of insertion of the media in the tank should be used in conjunction with BIO-Xport and Xport-NO3.
Instructions and Guidelines
Read the instructions before use. Use of a mechanical pre-filter to remove particulate matter from the water prior to its interaction with the product increases its efficiency. Rinse Xport-PO4 in osmotic water, then place the product in a clean container filled with water from the tank you will want to use it.
With an initial concentration of PO4 of 1 ppm or less, 350 g of Xport-PO4 is able to eliminate ~ 10.5 g of phosphates; This means that 1 g of Xport-PO4 ogni1, 500 L eliminates 0.02 ppm of phosphates. Replace the medium when the concentration of phosphates stops decrease (if it is greater than 0 ppm) or begins to increase.
Aquariums in nutrient-poor it is not uncommon spend several months before needing replacement.
If the corals or other invertebrates show to react negatively to the use of the media could be a sign that the phosphates were removed too aggressively. Decreased by 50% dosage of the product and continue as long as the concentration of phosphate becomes not measurable.
The most effective way to use Xport-PO4 is based on regular measurements of the concentration of phosphates carried out with a reliable test to make sure that the quantity of product used is adequate to the needs of the system. And 'advisable to use a flow time of 1 - 3 times the total volume of water. Do not use a fluidized bed filter.
Fluidization decreases the efficiency of filtration and can lead to a gradual deterioration of the material that could lead to a not dangerous but unattractive, dispersion of dust in the tank.
Internal filter: enter Xport-PO4 in the filter according to the instructions from the manufacturer of the filter.
Passive filtration: put Xport-PO4 in a mesh filter and place it in an area of low-medium flow of water.
External filter: If you put Xport-PO4 in a reactor, make sure that the media remain static and will not be moved.
