MRC Nilsen Reactors

The new touchpad programmable interface allows you to set timing intervals to control when the mixing occurs and for the length of the mix. This allows you to get the right amount of kalkwasser mixed for your system. The interface is capable of programming to the second, so you have an infinite amount of different timing options!

The new Nilsen Reactors also feature an heavy-duty external pump; no more wimpy pumps! This allows for the most powerful and reliable mixing performance for years to come. It also makes for easy cleaning and maintenance. The water resistant plug ensures worry free operation.

How does a Nilsen Reactor work? 
Nilson reactors are specially designed reactors meant to add “kalkwasser” (a saturated calcium solution) to your tank water. Kalkwasser, also called lime water, has a pH of near 12, so it, in itself, is a caustic substance to our aquarium inhabitants. However, when administered slowly, it will maintain clacium at appropriate levels, and will also help maintain pH at proper levels. Kalkwasser mix is a cheap substance to purchase, and allows calcium addition at a comparaitively lower cost. The counterpoint to this, is that administration has awlays been a tricky matter, always requiring either a labor intensive daily solution administered by “do it yousrelf” adaptations, or “Kalk stirrers”, using old laboratory technologies to mix a chamber.

Why should you buy a MRC Nilsen reactor? Simply put, MRC has brought the Nilsen (kalk) reactor to the 21st Century. Other kalk reactors use cheap parts or materials, or rely on additional equipment to mix the solution. MRC has brought quality and completion to its design. Using a powerful, external pump, the mixing is accomplished in a much more reliable way. These pumps are far more reliable and durable than the pumps used in other kalk mixers. Furthermore, any maintenance or service will be notably easier on this pump. In addition, MRC has included their state of the art digital touchpad timer to control the mixing. Based on usage, you can adjust your pump to mix the solution on any permutation, on a 1 second interval. Simply add kalk powder to the reactor, connect it to your topoff system, and reap the benefits. The MRC Nilsen Reactor will take care of the rest.
