Deltec E-Flow high-performance pressure pumps

By Leonard Ho - Posted Jan 31, 2012 08:00 AM
The Germans are invading! Deltec new ultra-high-end line of E-Flow pressure pumps are electronically controllable (able to create waves), energy efficient, and reportedly whisper quiet. Some very impressive specs (and equally impressive prices) after the jump.

Deltec's new E-Flow controllable pump systems

Aquarium circulation have trended towards internal propeller pumps for their high flow rates and controllability, but we may see a slight shift back towards closed-loops with advanced, variable-speed, highly-controllable pumps such as these.  The extreme head pressure capabilities of these pumps may also open up numerous other implementation possibilities.  The prices, however, are not for the feint of heart.

According to Deltec distributor AQ-arium Solutions (Barcelona, Spain), the E-Flow pumps feature:

  • Electronic Control
  • Low power consumption
  • Super silent
  • Extremely low heat transfer
  • Operation in "cold", which prevents the jamming by calcification
  • Display of power consumption
  • True effect "waves" *
  • No metal parts in contact with water
  • Can be used submerged or dry
  • Can be controlled with a Deltec programmer (available in March 2012) *

* To produce effects of waves, it is necessary to have the controller.

The three "E-Flow" models:

Min / Max consumption: 20/80 watt
Min / Max Flow: 5000/9000 lph (1300-2400 gph)
