PHOSBAN REACTOR 150 & suitable pump
The PhosBan Reactor 150TM is designed with the easy to use up-flow principle to achieve the most efficient use of any Phosphate chemical filter media. By pushing the water from the bottom in an upwards direction through a dispersion plate, it forces an even distribution of water through the reactor body and thus the media. This prevents channelling of flow through the media and therefore gives you an all round better absorption rate. It incorporates a twist off lid design which makes maintenance simple, as there are not lots of tedious plastic thumbscrews to undo every time you need access, like many cheap homemade units available on the market. The elbow attachments can be rotated or removed to suit your method of installation. It can be installed as a "hang-on" or in-line", "in sump" or "above tank". The options are vast making the unit one of the most versatile on the market. The reactor will filter up to 150 gallons and can be used with any type of granulated media. You can also use it for any nitrate removal media. With this we will include a suitable pump allowing you to begin using immediately. The pump provided is specially designed to offer very tidy positioning due to the rotational fixture allowing for it to be fitted very close to the unit. Please note the flow rate required is 20 - 30 gal/hr (75 - 115 l/hr) as too much flow can grind PhosBan. However many sellers are offering this with a 300lph pump which is not always suitable. As the manufacturers state the pump should have 100-200 gph (380-760 l/hr) capacity, then the flow must be reduced using the supplied ball valve.
