Tunze Recirculation Pump Silence Electronic 1073.050 Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

The new pumps Silence 1073.05 is electronically speed-controlled pumps operating on safety extra-low voltage.

They are ideal in any aquarium and contain a new micro-processor controlled motor, and can thus be referred to as “intelligent” pumps: The electronic motor adapts its speed automatically to the pump load and always seeks the best efficiency at the lowest possible consumption of energy. This energy consumption is about 30 per cent lower than in conventional pump motors. The pumps will be stopped immediately in case of blockage. After the blockage has been removed, the pumps will start up automatically after a delay of 20 seconds. They also comprise all other advantages of the non-controllable versions.

For example, they can be combined with Wavecontroller 7092 for operation in night mode or pulsating flow and filtration.

Fitted with Safety Connector 6105.50, they can be operated on every 10 V to 24 V direct-current source (battery, solar cell).

Silence electronic and e-jet electronic have been designed especially for low-noise operation.
  • Flow rate at 15 V: 800 to 1,800 l/h (211 to 475.5 USgal./h).
  • Flow rate at 24 V: 1,100 to 3,000 l/h (290.5 to 792.5 USgal./h).
  • Hmax. at 15 V: 1.9 m (74.8 in.).
  • Hmax. at 24 V: 3.9 m (153.5 in.).
  • Energy consumption at 15 V: max. 20 W.
  • Energy consumption at 24 V: max. 43 W.
  • Voltage / frequency: 100 – 240 V / 50 – 60 Hz.

Best pump ever

Reviewers Rating Excellent!

Comments: I bought four different pump manufactures, looking for one that could pump around 700++ gallons per hour. Everyone that I tried at my local aquarium store turned out to be supper loud. Even the most expensive at $200 Canadian was unbearable. The tunze silence 1073.05 electronic pump is literally silent. I could not hear even though I was trying. In my 45 gallon tank there was not even a sound in the room. This pump is worth every penny. The act that you can even control the output with a simple dial is even better. Fantastic product and really the only pump to buy since its good for small and large aquariums.

Very Quiet

Comments: This is my second time buying this exact pump, not because the previous one failed, but because I will be using it in my new 70 gallon build. The other one is running just like it was new. Still very quiet & no problem pushing the water to my 50 gallon cube from the sump. The variable jumpers (included) make it very easy to get the perfect water flow & then you can fine tune it from there on an external controller included in the power assembly. The pump is expensive, but so is not having the right flow & having to use gate valves to restrict the flow. Plus, it eliminates the headache of sizing the pump. Then if you upgrade tanks you can use the pump with the higher jumper to further increase the flow. Overall, the pump is quiet & gets the job done, it is also energy efficient which saves in the long run on the electric cost.

Comments: Say goodbye to gate and ball valves to throttle back return pumps, just turn the tiny red knob on the power connector and walla, you are at either a trickle or wide open throttle, this was great since i was leak testing my new 180g setup and would rather slowly throttle up the flow while checking for leaks. and It is close to silent! I love it!

Comments: Flow at 4.5ft head estimated 4 to 500gph. Nice compact size, accepts 3/4inch id hose. Has power brick similar to laptop. Unique sound like lawnmower way off in distance, not loud just different. Speed control is awesome. On my kill-a-watt meter it is pulling 34watts at wall on max speed (24v). Acceptable flow thru sump even at 20watts. My eheim 1260 was pulling 58watts and is noticably stronger. If you have high head or use a single pump for multiple items stick with Eheim. Overall a great pump. Energy efficient,quiet,versatile.

Comments: When my sump return pump went on the fritz, I began looking for a replacement. My criteria was that I needed something that would dependably come back on out of 'stand-by' mode, it had to pump at least 700 GPH, it had to run cool, and most of all QUIETLY! This pump delivers on all counts. Can barely hear it running, which is huge for me since my tank divides my living room and dining room. My system temp has not noticibly increased, and the flow is there. And if you want, it's adjustable from 3 different points. It's expensive, but I like it so much I ordered a second to run my reactors. It's powerful, it's quiet, it's Tunze!

Comments: I'm using this pump as a return pump. I love that I can raise/lower gph without closing a valve to restrict flow(more load on pump). I am planning on getting another to power my reactors, this pump takes away the guessing game of buying the correct flow rate pumps. And silent also!

Comments: I have done so much research from YouTube to forums to retail stores.. eheim pumps was gonna be my choice but I looked up tunze.. it is amazing how quiet this pump is I just can't understand how come or how much different it sounds.. also to be able to adjust speed from outside the dump is a plus.. I will rate this pump number 1 above all hands down... Powerful as well at 18 volts on a 90 gallon reef.. turned down speed about 75 percent no joke..

Comments: Just a great product here. Doesn't heat up my Solana 60 and the controllable feature saves in plumbing and possible leaks! It's been in use for a few months now with no issues to date. Also, to say it's silent is an understatement. Any differing experiences on the quietness and you may need to contact the manufacture
