The RLSS CM6 Calcium Reactor

By Leonard Ho - Posted Apr 03, 2012 08:00 AM
H2O Systems is showing they are a force to be reckoned with. Their upcoming RLSS CM6 calcium reactor is an impressive design with several innovative features found on no other calcium reactor. Read the details after the jump.

H2O System's RLSS CM6

rlsslogo.jpgThe new RLSS CM6 features many design elements found in other high end reactors ... and some unique to the CM6:

  • Thick cast acrylic construction through-out
  • 6" diameter reaction chamber
  • DC2500 circulation DC pump.  Not only are DC pumps speed-controllable and energy efficient, but they also run much cooler than conventional pumps which should result in less calcification around the impeller (in theory at least).
  • Up-flow design with a diffuser plate & plenum at the bottom of the chamber
  • CO2 collector/recycler/mixing chamber at the top of the chamber
  • Built-in pH probe slot (at top) with water-tight silicone compression fitting
  • A secondary pass-through chamber:  Users can fill this ~500ml chamber with dolomite/aragonite (to raise pH of the effluent), GAC, GFO, or any slow-flow media.  Up to three pass-through chambers can be installed.
  • Integrated bubble counter
  • Union connections on serviceable parts
  • John Guest fittings
  • Rated for an estimated 400 gallon reef tank (exact rating TBD)
  • $549.99
