CoralVue’s New BioChurn Biopellet Reactor

Introduced at MACNA 2012 the new method of fluidized biopellet suspension by CoralVue has heads turning, literally. Having fluidized to non-fluidized applications biopellets are the latest form of nutrient exportation in the Reef Industry and CoralVue has stepped up their game offering six different sizes for hobbyists, a commercial line, and an external series of reactors. The new Biochurn product from CoralVue is a engineering feat of its own. BioChurn20TBiopelletReactor 199x300 CoralVues New BioChurn Biopellet Reactor Photo courtesy of coralvue.com Coralvue states this new line of reactors will increase contact time with the incoming flow of water and “less direct pressure” on the pellets themselves. Coralvue’s new design offers a effort-efficient design hopefully eliminating clumping of biopellets. The Commercial line BR-20T BioChurn Recirculating Large System Biopellet Reactor Specifications: Diameter: 12″
