element™ Z Zeolite Reactor
Versatile, compact zeolite reactor for up to 100 US gallons/380 liters
The element™ Z Reactor is designed to utilize zeolite as a filter media in removing various pollutants from a reef aquarium while also providing a media to house beneficial bacteria. This method of filtration has been shown to increase coral coloration in many cases by reducing organic nutrient loads in reef aquaria to much lower levels. An important factor in use of the element™ Z Reactor is to utilize the wash feature of the reactor on the media 1-2 times per day. The wash of the media allows for more efficient filtration by keeping the bio film that grows on the media at a minimum while also feeding reef aquarium inhabitants the bio film itself.
Easily Removable Inner Chamber
The inner chamber can be removed without full breakdown making it easy to clean, change or top off media
Movable Separation Plate for Various Volumes of Media
The separation plate can be moved up and down which allows you to run any amount of media in a compacted fashion, preventing sheering of media
High Capacity Chamber
The reactor chamber can hold up to 1.2 Liters of your choice of zeolite (e.g. Seachem Zeolite™)
Two Pump Feature for Easy Flow Reversal
Using the “Easy Wash” feature will release bacteria into the system for corals by alternating cycles on the pumps - reverses direction of flow easily. The "Easy Wash" feature includes the ability to add aeration.
Polishing Mechanical Filter Finish
The included addition of a fine filter sock finish acts as a fine mechanical filter so no media particles escape into system. It also prevents micro bubbles from being released into the aquarium to irritate corals
Versatile Sump Placement
The element™ M and element™ Z have added versatility in positioning the return spillway. So depending on the size of your sump and placement of other equipment, you can always find a good fit.
