The Avast Marine Vibe is getting bigger with a 4 liter model and is now availabe in a 220V, 55Hz for international markets. If you not familiar with the Avast Vibe, it literally shakes up your zeolite or other fluidized reactors to keep them in top shape, free of mulm and clumps to keep things working at the optimum.
The problem faced with zeolite reactors and biopellet reactors is the biological film or mulm that provides the benefits that keep water quality up can actually get to be too thick, resulting in less-than-favorable results. This is where the Avast Vibe shakes things up. By using a vibration assembly, the Vibe shakes the media a few times a day to keep the film at an optimal level. On top of this, with other fluidized GFO or carbon reactors, clumping and channeling can cause the water to go through the path of least resistance. Increasing water flow can cause the media to break apart so vibrating can keep things from getting too settled and increase exposure time to leverage the reactors filtration capabilities.
The Avast Vibe originally came in a 2.5 liter version for US electrical wiring and has been available since last year with solid feedback from customers. As it was getting favorable reviews and there is a robust zeo community in Europe, it makes sense to create a larger size for bigger aquariums while expanding its borders. If you are looking for an innovative zeolite system, you can take home the Vibe starting $379.99.
