Any chance there will be a recirculating Kraken in the future?

Hi Gbear, we are currently building the second half of the 100 reactors as the first round sold pretty quickly. We can make a recirculating one for you in this last batch, if interested submit a ticket through our website.

I am interested but how do you plan to do the recirc and how much of a price bump should I expect.

It will take me less time to build it than explain it :) I will do that and then post a picture here, if you want it then it is yours, if not I am sure someone will....

OK, I'll keep my eye on this thread.

Don't rush art. Don't forget about it either OK. ;)

Been meaning to update you guys for a while. Basically we found that the recirculating version of the biopellet reactor required a larger pump to properly fluidize the pellets than it did with just our engineered nozzle. Then you add in a feed pump and the watts start adding up, combine that with really no clear evidence that increasing dwell time with the media is actually beneficial we wont be pursuing this any further and we firmly stand behind the efficiency of our nozzle in the reactors.

Dan, any idea why the recirc version needs a larger pump?
As far as feed, I'd take it off my manifold anyway so no issue there for me.
