Hi, I want to rebuild my system to a closed loop. My system is 1860(200cmx130cmx70cm) liter and can be viewed from 3 sides. That means that all Nozzle must be placed at the 130cm side. I have 3x 40mm return lines that has 9-12k liters/h Flow. Witch Nozzle would you recommend? And will the generate flow to reach the far side? My reef is a mixed reef with alot off Flow lowing sps at the top. They get the Flow from 2x maxspect gyro xf350.
Will I need more Nozzle to compensate for the 2 fx350

Hi Stian,

I'll be happy to help with. i do have few questions
  • is the 9-12k liters/h per hour the total being supplied to all three outlets?

  • Is that estiated LPH (9-12K) as measured from the pump or from the outlet?
    If it;s fromt he pump, can you give me an esitame of LPH from the outlets after any head-loss created by the plumbing

  • Will these outlets be straight PVC pipe (or slip-fit bulkhead) or are they a threaded 40mm bulkhead fitting?

  • Can you provide me an image or drawing of the oration or positon of these outeits on the 130cm wall?
Thanks

Antonio....

9-12k is from the each outlet. All are strait 40mm pvc tubes.
Two tubes are in the middle 10cm below surface and one is placed in left corner faced towards the center off the aquascape.

that's a lot of flow :)

I think your best option from a simplicity stand point, is going to be our 40mm RFG.

This are designed to simply slip-fit onto standard 450mm PVC pipe.

they have an optimal suggested flow rating f 3,785 to 5,675 LPH. But can take much more. With that said, at 9-12K LPH per outlet you will have some throughput loss with the RFG, simply because pushing that much water through the jet may not be possible.

However, if you don't mind some throughout loss, the added pressure created by that much flow will really cause the these RFGs act like massive wave makers. the Flow it will create will be spectacular.

If you don't mind me asking, which pumps are you use to supply these lines?

EDIT: Forgot to mention, depending on where you are, these may be available locally. I'm assuming since you have metric plumbing you likely in Europe?
 

Do you utilize the weekends for tank tasks?
