Tunze Osmolator Universal 3155 Information


Product Manuals & Documentation

In 1985 TUNZE® invented the “auto top off” system. Critics initially derided the idea as an invention for lazy people… They missed the main point: delicate aquatic life requires a constant osmotic pressure. The Osmolator® - short for Osmotic Regulator - provides this in one easy-to-install complete Kit. Only the Osmolator® provides the level of safety and reliability that comes with 25 years of TUNZE® know how.

Features
  • An optic operated mini sensor recognizes the water level precisely.
  • Displays all functions optically and sounds a signal in case of failures.
  • New Magnetic Sensor mount, so easy to use!
  • Redundant security: the main sensor is a proprietary optic sensor. Should that fail a safety float switch shuts the unit off and sounds an alarm. Even if that fails safety circuitry shuts off the pump after 10 minutes.
The Osmolator® will be supplied with low voltage metering pump, mounting magnets, tubing controller and power supply. You only need a reservoir and water!

Specifications
  • Metering pump capacity: 2.95ft: 13.74gph, 4.92ft: 12.42gph, 6.56ft: 7.13h, Hmax: 7.22ft
  • Ready for mounting with power supply unit, metering pump, hose, sensor holding device.
  • Metering pump capacity: 0.9 m: 52 l/h, 1.5 m: 47 l/h, 2 m: 27 l/h, Hmax: 2.2 m
  • The precise water level is ensured by a non-wearing optical sensor and a transistor switch without any moving parts. This sensor is insensitive to soiling, light or magnetic fields.
  • Its “automatic eye” recognizes the water level precisely; even small waves or level variations cannot irritate the unit.
  • An independent safety sensor with a separate power supply circuit and relay control ensures reliable overflow protection.
  • An electronic time controller and current limiter for the pump connected result in a higher operational safety. This unit protects the metering pump against running dry and reports an empty storage container.
  • All functions are clearly displayed by LEDs; safety messages are also indicated by acoustic signals.
  • The osmotic regulators are all operated at safety extra-low voltage.
For smaller aquariums, check out the Tunze Nano Osmolator 3152. If you need a container to hold your top off water, the Tunze Osmolator Storage Container 5002.25 is an ideal choice.

Comments: This is the second osmolator I've purchased. The last one worked flawlessly for about 10 years and then abruptly malfunctioned. The new unit works like a champ, is extremely precise, and the magnetic holders for the sensors is a major improvement.

Comments: This is my second unit. The first lasted 4-5 years before some occasional failures to sense low water levels until it finally stopped altogether. Debated about getting a second one but I assume many products fail over time and such importance for water level to be accurate. Very easy set up. Would be nice if you could replace the sensor separately (I could not find). Pumps burn out but are easy to replace. Lots of money, but integral to my system.

Comments: The quality is great on this product and it works as advertise. It makes adding water to the sumps effortless and less often as does the other way. The only thing that hung me up was trying to screw a nut on a small bolt I was all thumbs. Setting it up was a breeze thanks for the water level alarm that tells you where to put the sensors. The whole set up was easy to install and put in operation. Thanks for the invention. Dan Ptacek

Comments: Just installed two of these units: one on a Innovative Marine Mini 38 salt setup and one on a ADA 39 Gal planted freshwater tank. Been up and running for four days now and each is working great. Really like the fact that the system has a back up that causes the pump to shut down if the fill sensor malfunctions and the overfill sensor is triggered. Would give it another star if I had a year of experience with them and all ran well.

Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: I only have this system a few days. But I will say that the installation instructions were not clear. One, it doesn't indicate whether the main sensor should be in the water, touching the water, or just above the water. It took trial and error to properly place the sensor. As it would not operate UNTILL I submerged the tip of the sensor in the water. the rest of the installation was more or less logical. It now is running well and keeping the water level constant where I have it located in my sump. I do have a complaint regarding the genomes with the instruments placing the peanuts. They missed a few places.
