    I need some information on fluidized calcium reactors.

    The reactor size, diameter and height.

    LPH on the reactor pump?
    What size tank is the reactor used for?

    Thanks

    Mo G it might be easier to supply your system details and ask the guys to recommend a reactor.

    Its basically a recirculating reactor where the water is recirculated with enough force to fluidize the media, much like the fluidized filters.

    viper/Alan,I have build 1 but I went to big, I think. 15cm * 15cm * 50cm * 2 with a 2400LPH pump. The reactor is used for a 700L setup with 20% softies, 40% LPS and 40% SPS.It does work but it’s not fluidized another problem I want to build 1 for a 2000 – 3000L setup.I need to change the pump size or build a small unit but to do that I need to understand what is the size reactors used by others with the pump size, etc.

    Okay the AM 1000 for a 1000L system uses a 800l needle wheel, but is only a recirculating type, as for dimensions i am not sure off hand although it will be on their web site.
