The Hydro-carbonate Reactor is a ready to use filtration system that is post-switched to a sulfur reactor to neutralist the sulfuric acid, produced by the sulfur reactor. The AB Aqua Medic Hydro-carbonate Reactor is equipped with two tube connections and can be used as outside or inside filter. The filter is installed with the enclosed holder at a horizontal brace or the aquarium glass. The filter is connected to the effluent of a sulfur reactor.The water should flow upwards through the filter. The Hydro-carbonate Reactor is filled with 1,000 ml of Hydro-carbonate, a pure calcium-carbonate, that is dissolved by the sulfuric acid of the Sulfur filter. The result is Calcium-sulfate (gypsum). In the sulfur reactor, special bacteria reduce nitrate by oxidizing sulfur in an oxygen free environment. The residue is nitrogen gas, that escapes into the environment. A byproduct of this reaction is sulfuric acid.
This has to be neutralized, before the water is pumped back into the aquarium. Product is new in box. The price is firm, this listing does not except offers.
