Korallin C-1502 Calcium Reactor Package 2


Includes:

  • 1 - Korallin C-1502 Calcium Reactor without Pump (media not included)
  • 1 - Eheim 1048 Pump
  • 1 - AquaMaxx Dual Gauge Professional CO2 Regulator
  • 1 - Two Little Fishies ReBorn Coarse Aragonite Calcium Reactor Media 8.8lbs
  • 1 - 5 lb. CO2 Cylinder



The already best-selling Kalkreaktor (Calcium Reactor) in Germany has become even better. It completely replaces Kalkwasser, 1 or 2-part Calcium / Buffer powder & liquid dosing. The new and improved Korallin kalkreaktor allows a simple, elegant and high efficiency production of calcium hydrogen carbonate including the necessary balanced carbonic acid. Sit back and watch your aquarium`s pH and dKH being kept at optimum levels. Together with our reliable CO2 System, this is the most maintenance-free Kalkreaktor setup in the world.

Ca2+ + 2HCO3 = Ca(HCO3)2 = CaCO3 + H2CO3 Calcium + Hydrogen Carbonate =
Calcium Hydrogen Carbonate = Calcium Carbonate + Carbonic Acid

A Kalkreaktor setup (ie: one with CO2 System and CaCO3 media) is expensive only at the beginning. You save money in the long term because a 5-pound CO2 refill ($12) lasts you 1.5 years on our Kalkreaktor (and only ours) while a 7-kg CaCO3 media ($42 and good enough for 2 refills) lasts you up to 1 year! And no more tedious daily Calcium dosing. A pH Controller is not required for our Kalkreaktor because there is no chance for the excessive CO2 to escape into your system like ALL other brands on the market. A pH Monitor is a nice equipment to have for fast pH measuring. Though pH Test Kit and pH Pen-monitor can still be used for this purpose.

The internal recirculation flow rate of the C-1502 is around 80 g/h. Since that this is a pressurized Kalkreaktor, the dissolution of the media by the carbonized water is enhanced. The effluent rate is only about 0.25 g/h at 40 drops / min. Thus explaining the efficient CO2 & media use. CO2 is being introduced into the Eheim powerhead direct - this is the most efficient Aspirating-Venturi method.


Features:

  • Top-loading & access w/ enhanced O-ring seal
  • Auto-fill` Integrated Bubble Counter on one water circuit (ie: water never evaporates)
  • Detachable Tru-Union couplings w/ O-rings for easy handling, safe shipping, upgrading and leak proof
  • Integrated `industrial-grade` Brass Check Valve from German Air Pressure Systems to prevent back flow of pressurized saltwater
  • Improved engineering for stronger water circulation and suction
  • Secure German airline tubing connectors
  • Medical-use Miniature Quick Disconnect Couplings w/ shut-off 3 Inlet & outlet facing same direction
  • Special elbow for flexible airline tubing mounting
  • Heavy-duty Excelon construction w/ no unsightly and fragile hangover tubing
  • Top pump-mounting design
  • Self-suction water intake by the silent Eheim pump eliminates the use of a dedicated powerhead, gravity-fed or tee-off methods. It also serves for water recirculation.
  • Water circuit interruption in case of CO2 overdose - our exclusive CO2 Safety Feature
  • Visual excessive CO2 check w/ ventilation valve for quick release
  • Dual effluent outlets to suit different systems
  • Aspirating-Venturi technology utilizes only 10 CO2 bubbles / min. and up - most efficient use of both CO2 gas and CaCO3 media
  • Functions immediately, no `break-in period` required like other brands
  • The most compact and versatile positioning Kalkreaktor in its class - 6.25" small foot print + 15.75" total height - external or in-sump
  • Micro-adjustable miniature ball valve to maintain a consistent effluent drip rate
  • Slightly larger (German size) airline tubing for more consistent water flow
  • Strainer to protect Eheim pump from loose media particles
  • C-1502 - Rated for up to 400g. Reactor height: approx. 15.75"; Diameter: 4.5"; Ground: 6.25"; Filling amount to 3 kg. Eheim 1048 recirculation powerhead, bubble counter & brass check valve included.
  • C-3002 - Rated for up to 800g. Reactor height: approx. 29"; Diameter: 4.5"; Ground: 6.25"; Filling amount to 6.5 kg. Eheim 1048 recirculation powerhead, bubble counter & brass check valve included.

Q
Does this model come with a PH probe insert?
Asked : Aug 16, 2018
By : David Hernandez
 
 
 
A
No, but there are probes available. You must also purchase the probe ready lid for the reactor.

Q
Korallin C1502 Calcium Reactor Feed pump
Would you recommend using a feed pump with this calcium reactor? If so, which one? If not, does it work to gravity feed it? Also, if I wanted to have a second chamber for this reactor could I simply fill a standard media reactor and place it at the Koralline 1502 effluent output?
Asked : May 23, 2017
By : Wade, United States
 
 
 
A
The Korallin C1502 Calcium Reactor actually comes with an Eheim 1048 Pump. Self-suction water intake by the silent Eheim pump eliminates the use of a dedicated powerhead, gravity-fed or tee-off methods. It also serves for water recirculation. Some reefers choose to add a second chamber to the effluent of their calcium reactors, but modifying the unit could affect performance or void the manufacturer's warranty. Be sure to read the user manual to prevent using your equipment in a way that could void the warranty.

PROS
Well made
CONS
Not the easiest to load and put together, needle valves it comes with will clog easily
REVIEW
IMO it needs to be run with a CO2 controller like any other CaRx. It works great as such. I'm running it on a 240 gallon system right now and it's keeping up with the demand just fine. However, I anticipate needing a larger unit when my corals are grown in more. I think the 400 galling rating is...Read More

Easy ph stability and consistency
CONS
expensive. needs regualr adjustments, has lots of hoses
REVIEW
Been running this around 10 years. No parts have needed replacing except the air hoses. I use a ph controller with it. Does need regular adjustments but is so well built it will outlast your system. Keeps the ph very constant.

Nice, But...

REVIEW
As stated by others, you will get an air gap at the top when running a slow drip causing the pump to airlock. Save yourself the aggravation and run the normal drop line AND run the top bleeder line as well. Dial them both in so any air that gets trapped in the top can bleed out on a daily basis.

REVIEW
No negative comments about the C-1502 since it seems well built. However, if you're planning on buying the kit (reactor and CO2 setup), there's a few things you should be aware of and to plan out:1. The C-1502 Korallin reactor does not come with a reactor lid for the pH probe to control the CO2. In ...Read More

REVIEW
Ok. It's been 1 full year since installation. First, the reactor needs to be lower than water source. No extra micro pump is really required as long as your outtake is below or same level as the reactor. You will get air trapped up top of the reactor and the best solution I have found is to use t...Read More

REVIEW
Got a used one and its very simple to use. Only thing I don't like is it doe not have a PH probe holder. Although you can set the CO2 rate in the bubble count in the chamber, I much rather to control it with a PH controller. Quick fix, ordered a Geo probe adapter, drilled the top of the reactor, tap...Read More
