Schuran calciumreactors
Calciumreactors with different efficiency are present on market since several years. A constant level of calciumhydrogencarbonate plays an important role in the buffering capacity of seawater. If this capacity is kept high the tendency of declining pH value (by acidic influences caused by metabolism of diverse microorganisms) is reduced considerably. The water inside the calciumreactor is circulated using a centrifugal pump. The water being saturated with carbondioxide creates an acidic medium in which the coralsand is dissolved as calciumhydrogenecarbonate. Apart of the calciumhydrogenecarbonate trace elements are set free which once had been accumulated during lifetime of the corals. These products are leaving the reactor via the outlet.

The Jetstream series - calciumreactors 

Carbondioxide is taken up by an injector system. Bubbles of carbondioxide which have not been used are circulated by a gas/water separator and are injected into the reaction chamber again. In this way not a single bubble can leave the reactor without having been used. Up to now, the remaining gases, mostly nitrogen, have caused problems in every closed reactor, thus complicated and delicate degasing procedures have been necessary. The Jetstream reactors are the first which make use of this gas in a profitable way: It has a beneficial effect on the water flowing through the coralsand thus preventing the system to accumulate fine mud. The whole filling is evenly dissolved. As a result the speed of current in the system is enhanced remarkably without diminishing the solubility for carbondioxide. The outlet water is free of gas. Everyone can compare and test the capacities, the results are reproducable - Jetstream reactors are the first ones with performance diagrams!
