The Important Role Of Protein Separators In Aquarium Engineering
- Aug 14, 2018 -

The aquarium or aquarium is an indispensable element of a modern metropolis. The aquarium project requires a very complex living system to treat the seawater. All marine life requires the support of circulating water treatment equipment at all times. Dynamic water quality changes also require instrumentation for monitoring. Marine aquaculture system equipment represented by protein separators plays an important role here.


The protein separator is not only equivalent to a rather sophisticated physical filter, but also because it is aerated during the process, so the amount of dissolved oxygen is higher in the water treated by it. The organic suspension in most of the water is filtered out, so that they have no chance to decompose into nitrogen-containing toxic substances, thus paving the way for the next step of biological filtration. At the same time, due to its high dissolved oxygen content in the effluent, it also creates a high oxygen environment for nitrifying bacteria, which is easier to breed.


If a biological filtration system is added to the Aquarium Life System, the ozone machine should be used with caution. Residues of ozone can kill biochemical bacteria and cause biological filtration to fail. Therefore, either stagger the use time of the two (the interval should be no less than 2 hours, because the half-life of ozone is not more than 1 hour), or install an ozone adsorption device at the rear end of the ozone machine. At present, most of the adsorption devices used in the project use activated carbon to adsorb residual ozone.

Another important issue in the aquarium project is the issue of spare equipment. If the pump is in the long-term uninterrupted work, the failure rate is relatively high, so the preparation of the pump is necessary. Others, such as activated carbon in filter sand tanks, need to be replaced after they are saturated. These consumables should be included in the budget at the time of the initial planning.
