Crystal clear displays are always the goal of any aspiring Reef Hobbyist. As mainstays of the hobby, Activated Carbons and Phosphate Absorbing Medias go a long way towards the fulfillment of this goal by absorbing many of the impurities that accumulate in the water column. Incorporating these medias into the systems has traditionally been accomplished with the aid of filter bags and/or cartridges. However, this is far from being the most effective means of utilizing these products as the medias compact, flow-through declines and the surface area contact becomes compromised. Vertex™ Universal Media Reactors provide a practical solution by fluidizing the given medias, thereby eliminating the problem of compaction and allocating complete control of flow-through to the user.

EASY TO INSTALL AND OPERATE

Vertex™ Universal Media Reactors feature our Quick-Lock Screw top which eliminate the need to remove screws in order to open the reactor for media exchange. The acrylic lid settles into a seated O-ring, allowing for leak-free seal and effortless removal. To make installation a breeze all necessary parts are supplied in order to hard-plumb the unit or connect via soft hose. Furthermore any necessary flow adjustment is possible using the high quality Valve supplied.

UNMATCHED QUALITY

Reliable and functional design, assembled with high quality cast acrylic; Vertex™ Universal Media Reactors represent a constant endeavor to increase value without sacrificing quality.

EXCLUSIVE FEATURES

  • Quality cast-acrylic construction for long life

Rx-U+ Series Fluidized Media Reactors by Vertex Aquaristik™

Crystal clear displays are always the goal of any aspiring Reef Hobbyist. As mainstays of the hobby, Activated Carbons and Phosphate Absorbing Medias go a long way towards the fulfillment of this goal by absorbing many of the impurities that accumulate in the water column. Furthermore to that the uses of PHA Biodegradable plastics such as “Vertex™ Pro-Bio Pellets” are becoming increasingly popular and prove to be an effective addition to most nutrient-export systems. Incorporating these medias into the systems has traditionally been accomplished with the aid of filter bags and/or cartridges. However, this is far from being the most effective means of utilizing these products as the medias compact, flow-through declines and the surface area contact becomes compromised. Vertex™ Universal Media Reactors provide a practical solution by fluidizing the given medias, thereby eliminating the problem of compaction and allocating complete control of flow-through to the user.

Rx-U Plus series Media Reactor accomplish these tasks in style. Only the finest material utilized and through precise CNC machining a perfect combination of form and function has been realized. No expense was spared to offer the best quality and most versatile functionality. From Titanium Screws to QUICK-LOC lid design; ease of use, functionality, modularity and easy maintenance has been the aspirations behind designing the RX-U Series.

Rx-U plus is a perfect addition to the Vertex Universal reactor line-up for when removing the reactor from system is not possible and/or convenient. Dual chamber design of Rx-U PLUS series enables the user to remove the inner media container from the unit to facilitate an exchange without the need to remove the reactor completely. Media exchange and/or replenishment has never been easier.

Rx-U Plus units are designed for INLINE hard-plumbed and/ or REMOTE soft-hose applications. Set up is a breeze and further to that the unit can also be fully disassembled for thorough maintenance. While the reactor is perfectly fit to run probiotic media, additional Bio-Peller add-on assembly is offered for replacement of foam discs if and when desired and/or necessary.
