Next Generation of Water Moving Technology

The Maxspect Gyre 50W (maximum flow rate - 5000GPH) is the world`s first "Gyre"- generating water moving device for aquariums. Compared to traditional powerheads and wavemakers that are based on propeller nozzle flow technology, the Maxspect Gyre is based on advanced crossflow technology which produces massive horizontal water movement leaving little to no dead spots in its wake.

Gyre Generation - New -Crossflow Technology

A) Virtually no dead spots
B) Evenly distributed flow rate throughout the entire aquarium
C) Water bounces back from the other side to create a full circulation, ie. generating "gyre flows"

Other Pumps - Standard Propeller Nozzle Technology

A) Dead spots with relatively poor water movement
B) Very strong flow in the center, making coral placement very difficult
C) Very weak flow near the other end of the aquarium

Why gyre generator and not wavemaker?
Wavemakers excel in making waves, while waves are spectacular to watch in motion, they are in fact moving the majority of the water vertically up and down, with relatively low horizontal movement, especially near the bottom of the aquarium.

On the other hand, gyre generators excel in moving sheer flow of water from one side of the aquarium to the other. The sheer flow of water is so strong that i would bounce back from the opposite site to achieve full circulation within an aquarium, ie. generating "gyre flows".

Gyres are ocean current systems that basically move the water in a circular way. A spiral oceanic surface current driven primarily by the global wind system and constrained by the continents surrounding the three ocean basins (Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian). Each ocean basin has a large gyre in the subtropical region, centered around 30° north and south latitude. Smaller gyres occur at 50° north latitude in the North Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The direction of a gyre`s rotation is determined by the prevailing winds in the region, with the large subtropical gyres rotating clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere and counterclockwise in the Southern Hemisphere.

REVIEW
Great product does exactly what they say it would do. I have a 55 gal reef tank with a lot of corals and live rock. There is movement in every part of my tank and I'm only using 50 %. I would highly recommend this flow pump.

REVIEW
I had a lot of reservations about this pump, but after using it a month, I'm a believer. It replaced two jebaos and a tunze. I was a little worried about how it would look, but it's less obtrusive than other powerheads and the flow is great. My one quibble is that the XF130 is too long to mount h...Read More

REVIEW
The Gyre simply moves a lot of water. I have mine roughly 4" below the water line horizontally placed. My sand bed is so much cleaner after just a few weeks of use. I'm running it at 60% on pulse and you can barely hear it if at all. I think a second one placed vertical at the opposite end of m...Read More

REVIEW
A top rated flow pump, will take the place of three power heads in my 150g reef tank. Very user friendly, the controller is very easy to adjust to whatever flow you like. Could take the place of a close loop system.
