View Full Version : Reactor for Filtra M

Do you sell a reactor for the Filtra M ? if you do, what is the diameter and height ? How much flow should go through the reactor ?

Our REA's can be used to run Filtra M as they can be run fluidized or gravitational. I have a shipment of the new REA's coming in the end of this week and I will let you know the new dimensions. There is a small ball valve that you can add to adjust flow and the REA 120 comes with a eheim 1250 and the REA 120+ comes with a 1260. There is also a new REA that I will have made for MUCH larger tanks but I have not even seen it yet so I have no idea what pump(s) it uses. Talk to you later. BTW how are your bulbs treating you?

The Elos SE 400 watts 10 K that have tons of PAR ? They are doing great....... nice light in combination with actinic and fiji purple T5's.
The only problem was that they have too much PAR compared to the other bulbs I was using and I had to raise my lamp in order not to burn the corals (I also adjusted the intensity with the ACLS units I have).
Please send a picture of the new REA's that are arriving.

Good to hear. I will get some pictures when they arrive.

Jesse, can you pm me the pricing on these reactors

Whatever happened with this ? You have the measurements ?

tagging along on this thread...
can the Filtra M be run in any phosphate reactor? If so, should the media contents be a mixture of Filtra M plus another phosphate reducing media? (My understanding from reading the instructions are that I should start with just a very small amount of the Filtra M and monitor the results, increase the amount gradually.) I posted a similar question in a new thread, about whether this can be run passively in a slow-moving sump.

Filtra M can be used in any fluidized reactor but should not be used with other phosphate removing media. Fatboy, I had only one of the new REA's come in on the shipment and the rest are on the ocean freight due at the end of the month. The 120+ REA I had was sold before it arrived so I did not take any pictures of it. Since it uses our patented injection it is functionally the same as the previous model but the top is redesigned and it looks very nice. The person who purchased the REA has posted on this forum so I will ask him to take a few pictures.
Canarygirl, you are correct about starting with a low dosage and increasing it to the required dosage over an 8-10 day period.

What is the recommended flow for the Filtra M ?
I'm currently running it in a fluidizer.

In our REA we usually run the media in the range of 200-300 gph. At this level the surface of the media is tumbling. Have I sent you that short video with the REA running with filtra m, filtra p fast and filtra p?

No video received....

nothing special but you will see the REA 120 in the middle and the small blue valve is turned down a bit on a 317gph eheim 1250. I just emailed it.
