The use of ozone in seawater filtration is a powerful means of achieving the crystal clear, “fish floating in air” effect seen in the world’s most beautiful marine aquaria. An extremely powerful oxidizing agent, ozone will essentially “bleach” your seawater clean when used in a controlled environment in a safe and effective manner. Coupled with an efficient protein skimmer, ozone can help improve water quality by breaking down large organic molecules into components more suited to skimming or usable by bacteria. Ozone users frequently report an increase in skimmer productivity and almost always better water clarity and overall system health.
Our new, version 2.0 Mutiny ozone reactor is designed to react seawater with an ozonated air environment. The efficiency of this process is optimized by balancing water throughput with contact time, which is greatly enhanced by the use of a specially modified ozone-safe Sicce needlewheel recirculating pump. Water and ozone are forcefully mixed inside a custom designed diffuser chamber, then dispersed over a bed of thin HDPE ribbon media in an atmosphere of ozonated air. The high surface area of this media allows much better gas exchange and oxidation of organic material than simply bubbling ozonated air through a column of water, as when using ozone in a protein skimmer. After aquarium water passes through and exits the reactor chamber, it runs through a carbon post filter which strips out all remaining ozone and any by-products of the oxidation reactions. This effectively neutralizes the smell in both the effluent air and water, making both safe for fish, pets, and people.
We have chosen the variable output Ozotech Poseidon 200 as our recommended ozone generator. This unit has proven to be a reliable and high quality machine and is user serviceable as well.
Footprint with connected carbon reactor: 12″ x 7″ x 21″ tall.
Carbon reactor can be placed remotely for more flexible footprint options.
Comes with Ozone reactor, HDPE media, air pump*, recirculating pump, several options for carbon reactor and enough carbon for 2 months of operation. Ozone generator and feed pump are required for operation but may be purchased separately.
4 feet of tubing for reactor hook up plus flow control valves are included, all ozone safe tubing for water connections is included.
Ozone safe air tubing plus high quality ozone safe check valve are included with the ozone generator. If you are using your own generator you will want to plan for connection to a 3/16″ barb at the pump.
