Maxspect XF230 Gyre Generator Flow Pump with Advanced Controller

Maxspect XF230 Gyre Generator Flow Pump with Advanced Controller
Next Generation of Water Moving Technology

The Maxspect Gyre 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 deadspots in its wake.

Max Flow 2,300gph | 8~35 watts | 25-100+ gallons Includes Single Gyre XF230 Pump and Advanced Controller Applicable for glass or acrylic aquariums up to 1/2 in.

Gyre - 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"

Standard Pump 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".
