To arrive at gallon per hour figure, velocity measurements were plugged into this formula:. Sound levels in decibels of various environments. Buying Format see all. Skip to main content. With the VorTech Recommended Flow Calculator simply enter your tank dimensions to see maximum and minimum required flow levels. On the second and third pictures, the middle piece magnet body is not included, only the bearings. These will no fit the MP60 or MP

The MP40 device was installed in a gallon aquarium 48″x MP 10 and 60 versions available now. Figure 11 demonstrates power consumption at various pump power settings these in Constant Speed mode at top speed setting.

The second phase follows wit a surging motion to move the detritus into the overflow and out of the aquarium. Data gathered with pumps set at maximum bortech speed.

Gallons per hour is the standard for determining pump output. Our award winning customer service staff can log into your account and suggest changes for you.

Creating proper water motion is much easier today than in the nascent days of reef-keeping with a procession of improved devices. Water Velocity at Various Power Settings As discussed earlier, water velocity is the true metric we should use when determining the sizing of a pump for an aquarium.


The speed of the pump is changed slowly to recreate the gentle currents of a lagoon. All modes were operated for at least 24 hours. I was curious if the MP40 was more efficient at a given operational speed. Lagoon Mode Lagoon mode simulates a low-energy lagoon environment. MP 10 and 40 versions available now.

The ReefLink device allows communication with computers, iPads, etc. Choosing the correct water circulation equipment has never been easier. I won it as the prize for a contest I entered. Feed Mode At the touch of the button, all VorTech wirelessly enabled pumps will temporarily pause their current mode and idle allowing food to be added to the tank without being cycled into the overflow and filtration.

Hot this week in Ecotech Vortech. Over-current protection – if the propeller becomes jammed, our micro controller will sense the problem and shut the motor down to prevent overheating.

Flow Uncompromised In an aquarium, having the right amount of flow is crucial to the health of the ecosystem. At The Coral Life we strive to do things different than the other outlets. Guaranteed by Fri, Jan 4. Coral researchers almost never discuss flow in gallons per hour – it is velocity that is most often mentioned.

It is well known that many coral species can grow and develop skeletal shapes particular to water motion. We get an idea of the amount of water moved by the MP40 when we examine the amount of power consumed in various operational modes.


Calcium deposits are best removed by soaking in vinegar. Having issues getting the coral growth that you expect?

The flow direction will change direction every cycle. How do these claims hold up under close scrutiny?

Avoid strong acids as they might damage pump components. Under pup of testing conducted, the pump will deliver 5, plus gallons per hour when in Gyre mode, but this amount of flow is periodic.

Prppeller is indicated by dial color while speed and frequency are shown by the white LED strip. In addition, the amount of work performed as measured by watts consumed is higher than advertised.

The only issue to note is the wetside has been glued.
