The Working Principle Of Calcium Reactor
- Jun 09, 2017 -

Calcium reactor top most brands sold in the aquarium market has a water inlet for the aquarium water access, but the water flow is very small, and the flow control valve to precisely control the flow of water is generally not more than 2-4L/h. Calcium is placed inside the reactor has a large number of CaCO3, CaCO3 in pH is greater than 7 of the time and can not be directly dissolved in water, acidic when it can dissolve only in water, so the top in the internal calcium reactor has a water pump can be injected into the carbon dioxide gas inside, fully mixed with water, and transported to the the bottom of the reactor of calcium. The carbon dioxide dissolved into carbonate in water, the water quality of pH decreased slightly acidic. The reaction formula is: CO2+H2O to H2CO3 (carbonic acid)

The input into the carbon dioxide gas internal calcium reactor is the need to strictly control, because the carbon dioxide gas input will lead to calcium in the reactor water pH down to 6 ~ 6.5, excessive input of carbon dioxide will lead directly to the aquarium water decreased to 8 pH. Also consider the size of the aquarium, the type, quantity, and demand for calcium.
