The VorTech is beautiful and designed with simplicity in mind. A
magnetic couple transmits motion through your aquarium glass
and clamps the assembly against your tank. This means you
won’t have to drill your aquarium, and that you can easily
reposition the pump somewhere else in the aquarium without
having to move around complicated and awkward brackets. The
VorTech is the smallest propeller pump on the market when
you consider how little space it occupies inside the aquarium. The
motor is outside of the aquarium, meaning the VorTech may be
positioned where it will be least visible. The VorTech is elegantly
discreet both in and outside your aquarium. Flow The VorTech
produces from 500 to 3,000 gallons per hour of low velocity
gentle water current. The flow is so impressive and broad, that it
actually creates an undertow along your sand bed. You will notice
an equal amount of flow going out of your pump as you will see
going back into it! Moreover, because the flow pattern is so wide,
there is no reason to direction the flow, simply place the pump on
the back or sides of your aquarium and flow will be created
throughout the whole tank. Energy Savings The VorTech is one of
the most efficient pumps on the market, and the new MP40W
model is even more so, consuming only 28 watts to produce 3000
gallons per hour. More importantly, all of the heat put out
from the motor is outside of your aquarium, meaning you won’t
have to invest in costly chillers to keep your tank cool. Battery
Backup Accessory The VorTech Battery Backup will power one
pump for up to 30 hours or two pumps for 15 hours each.
Alternatively, multiple battery backups can be plugged into each
other to provide even more run time during a power outage.
There is no other product that detects an outage and provides as
much insurance for so little money. Wave Motion Every MP40W
model VorTech pump is wave controllable right out of the box!
With our new Wireless Wave Driver, the VorTech pump can act
autonomously to create waves in your aquarium, or can be
synched with other pumps in the tank to create random and
pulsing movements. When any one pump is entered into feed
mode, the pump will signal all other VorTech pumps to shut down,
eliminating the time required for you to turn off each pump
individually. No other pump on the market can even compare to the
intelligence of the VorTech pump. Specifications Flow: 500-3000
