Tunze LED Strip Lights Get a Higher Dose of Graphite, Prepping for Higher Wattage

2cfbTunze LED1 Tunze LED Strip Lights Get a Higher Dose of Graphite, Prepping for Higher WattageTunze had some news for us at MACNA this year, and while it may not be ground breaking, it certainly is telling about what’s possibly in store for the future. The German pump makers quietly announced that their LED strip lights will receive an infusion of graphite, upping the percentage to around 75%. The remaining percentage is made up of plastic, keeping the fixture waterproof. This move is mostly due to heat dissipation, as the higher graphite percentage comes pretty close to the dissipating abilities of aluminum. While the improved efficiency of the cooling is good news, it’s the possibilities for future fixtures that have us more interested. As the cooling ability improves, Tunze can now up the intensity of the strips, and possibly even incorporate larger models. The Tunze LED should start seeing the higher graphite models later this year, or possibly even at the beginning of next year.

Aquarium Specialty Opens Up New Wholesale Website

6b19Aqua Specialty Website Aquarium Specialty Opens Up New Wholesale Website This news may not impact regular hobbyists, but the folks who make a living every day selling aquarium equipment might want to perk up their ears a little. Aquarium Specialty is bringing their outstanding customer service, robust inventory, and purchasing power to the wholesale side of the aquarium equipment hobby with their newest venture, Aqua Specialty Wholesale. Although the site is currently viewable by the public, and with the retail prices listed for the moment, Aqua Specialty Wholesale will soon be put on lockdown, accessible only to fish stores and installation/service companies through accounts. The site is currently set to demo mode, meaning you cannot place an order for the items listed. That said, it still gives us a good idea of what this new wholesale store will have to offer, which appears to be virtually everything! All of the top shelf brands like EcoTech Marine, Vertex, AquaIllumination, and Tunze for example, will find their way onto the store’s virtual shelves. Of course, not just any hobbyist can purchase these items, as we mentioned. Like most wholesalers, Aqua Specialty will require that you hold a business license, proper tax documents, and all other pertinent paperwork in order to place orders. MORE: Aquarium Specialty Opens Up New Wholesale WebsiteMore:

As we have already had occasion to comment in the test on the pumps Tunze, we were able to criticize the behavior of the electronic return pump Tunze 1073.050, a pump with incredible quality, but that it hadn’t impressed with the data we measured. After contacting the company in conjunction with the publication of the article, the same Tunze assured us that it would provide a new pump to redo all of our tests.

As usual, we measured the prevalence, output and consumption. Unlike the last time when we went to Sicce factory to make measurements complete and accurate, we just did our “homemade” test but now well standardized.

DSG 2712 pompa tunze silence 1073.050 New Tunze electronic pump 1073.050 put to the test

After the test we did recently on Tunze pumps, we had commented about return pump electronic Tunze 1073.050, a pump with incredible skills, had not been impressed us with data we measured. After promptly contacted the company in conjunction with the publication of the article of the test, the same Tunze assured us that she would soon provide a new pump to redo all of our tests, since the values we measured were not consistent with their measurements, making us think of a pump obviously defective in our possession.

The new pump to be tested is finally here and soon we will recreate the conditions of the test to measure its performance.

If you want to read what we tested, like we had done and especially what we got, you can do so by reading the following article: Tunze Silence pumps 1073.020 – 1073.040 – 1073.050: The Total Comparative Test
