The Maxspect Gyre is the world's first "gyre"- generating water moving device for aquariums. Compared to traditional powerheads and wavemakers that are based on propeller nozzle flow technology, the Maxspect Gyre is based on advanced crossflow technology which produces massive horizontal water movement leaving little to no deadspots in its wake.
New Crossflow Technology
Virtually no dead spots
Evenly distributed flow rate throughout the entire aquarium
Water bounces back from the other side to create a full circulation, ie. generating "gyre flows"
Standard Propeller Nozzle Technology
Dead spots with relatively poor water movement
Very strong flow in the center, making coral placement very difficult
Very weak flow near the other end of the aquarium
Gyre generators excel in moving sheer flow of water from one side of the aquarium to the other. The sheer flow of water is so strong that it bounces back from the opposite site to achieve full circulation within an aquarium, ie. generating "gyre flows".
