In an aquarium, having the right amount of flow is crucial to the health of the ecosystem. With VorTech® QuietDrive® choosing the correct water circulation equipment has never been easier.
VorTech pumps are designed by aquarists to be the gold standard for providing flow in marine aquariums. When it comes to broad yet gentle flow, the VorTech design is unmatched.
Create massive water movement No coral damaging “hot spots” Natural Gyre Tank-wide flow patterns Precise control of water movement
At the heart of the VorTech’s success is its unique, patented, magnetically coupled design.
No distractions from the beauty of the tank and its inhabitants No wires in the aquarium No unwanted heat added to the water column No risk of electrical discharge harming people or marine life No hassle when it comes to installing, relocating or cleaning the powerhead
Flow: 1,500+ gph (6,000+ lph) Power Consumption: 8-19 Watts Tank Range: 2.5-50+ gal (9.5-190 liters) Max Glass Thickness: 0.375 inches (9.5 mm)
Modes of operation
Lagoon Mode Lagoon mode simulates a low-energy lagoon environment. The speed of the pump is changed slowly to recreate the gentle currents of a lagoon.
Reef Crest Mode Reef Crest Random Mode simulates a high-energy reef environment. The pump will change speed frequently and drastically to simulate crashing waves and surging tide. This is a favourite of SPS coral.
Gyre Mode Gyre Mode creates a flow pattern consisting of uniform clockwise and *counterclockwise flow levels pulsing at a selected interval between two seconds and two hours. *Alternating directional gyre requires multiple pumps.
Short Pulse Mode Short Pulse Mode creates a flow pattern consisting of uniform high and low levels pulsing at a selected interval between 0.2 seconds and 2 seconds.
Tidal Swell Mode Tidal Swell Mode (TSM) creates a harmonic balance reminiscent of the changing flow conditions found in nature. Over the course of several hours, the flow pattern will go from very chaotic to calm, followed by a detritus-clearing surge at the very end of the cycle. The flow direction will change direction every cycle.
Nutrient Transport Mode Nutrient Transport Mode (NTM) creates circulation in a two-phase program. The first phase uses wave motion to stir up detritus. The second phase follows wit a surging motion to move the detritus into the overflow and out of the aquarium. This mode promotes maximum health, nutrient export and increased growth for sensitive corals such as SPS.
BATTERY BACKUP COMPATIBLE
In an aquarium with no flow, fish and corals can begin to die in as little as 4 to 10 hours. The Battery Backup is reef tank insurance in an aluminium housing.
By adding the Battery Backup, your tank is insulated from power interruptions, helping protect your valuable investment -and your tank inhabitants.
