The Triton method of reef keeping is one of the fastest growing methodologies for maintaining a precise reef aquarium chemistry. The Core7 line of Triton additives are balanced, complete, and now with new powdered forms of their buffers the suite of additives will be even more environmentally friendly.
Triton once used plastic bottles so thick you could hammer nails with them but over the last year they introduced the diametrically opposite container in the form of paper milk cartons. These new additive containers require much less energy & materials to produce and it goes without saying that paper is much more recyclable than plastic.
In a statement released this weekend Triton announced that they will now be offering two of the four parts, 3A & 3B representing the buffers, exclusively in powdered form.
“The following changes to Core7 production will come into immediate effect.
Components 3A and 3B will now be delivered in a powder form.
The contents and concentration of the solutions remain the same therefore there will be no change to any dosing requirements.”
If before the 3A & 3B buffers weighed at least one kilogram or 2.2 pounds per liter each, we imagine the dry powdered buffers probably shave off a pound per carton or two pounds per set of four Core7 additives. The new dry powders will definitely reduce shipping weight, saving both cost and energy, furthering Triton’s commitment to environmental sustainability. [Triton]
