NANO CO2 FLIPPER
FOR AQUARIA UP TO 40 L
Efficient, compact CO2 diffusors for aquariums. With CO2 collector and waste gas vent.
- Includes 2 collectors:
- smaller: for 10-25 l aquaria
- larger: for 25-40 l aquaria
- The CO2 Nano Flipper consists of highly transparent, break-proof plastic "Made in Germany"
- Suitable for all CO2 hoses with an external diameter of 6 mm can be used.
How the CO2 Nano Flipper works
The CO2 bubbles issue from the opening at the bottom of the Flipper and rise along the channels. Part of the CO2 dissolves in the aquarium water in the process. The rest accumulates in the collector, from where it is released into the water. The safe design of the collector ensures that the small quantities of CO2 which are customary for nano aquaria are effectively dissolved, while undesired large quantities of CO2 are discharged automatically via the waste gas vent. The scope of delivery thus includes 2 collectors – the smaller one for 10-25 l aquaria, and the larger one for 25-40 l aquaria.
The crucial advantage over the CO2 diffusors with ceramic membrane which are commonly used for nano aquaria is that the Nano Flipper does not produce any counterpressure. This means that it responds directly to changes on the pressure reducer. The required (small) quantity of CO2 required can thus be set reliably within a few minutes.
The waste gas vent
While the CO2 bubbles rise in the Flipper, other gases which are naturally dissolved in the aquarium water penetrate into the bubbles. These so-called waste gases are substantially lighter than the relatively heavy CO2 and thus accumulate in the collector at the top. Here they are discharged regularly via the specially dimensioned waste gas vent (slits). The heavier CO2 remains in the gas buffer at the bottom, at the interface with the water.
Running in the CO2 Flipper
The CO2 Flipper takes about 2 days to run in. To begin with, the individual CO2 bubbles join together to form larger bubbles. However, after only a short time, the channels of the Flipper become coated in a biological layer consisting of micro-organisms. This layer ensures that the individual CO2 bubbles travel through to the collector.
