These reactors are for those of you that desire crystal clear water
and want to raise your ORP (Oxygen Redox Potential) safely and
efficiently by injecting ozone into the system, look no further than the
Reef Octopus Ozone Reactor. Unlike injecting ozone into a protein
skimmer, this intricate reactor is specifically designed to extend the
dwell time between the ozone and the water; Producing exceptional
crystal clear/sterile aquarium water.
The Reef Octopus OCT-OR150 ozone reactor is designed to allow contact
of seawater in a low pressure degassing chamber filled with ozonated
air. The efficiency of this process is maximized by balancing water
throughput with contact time as water is dispersed over a bed of
bio-balls or HDPE ribbon media in an atmosphere of rich ozonated air.
This large amount of surface area within the degassing chamber allows
for much better gas exchange and oxidation potential of organic material
than simply injecting ozone into column of water like a protein
skimmer. Within the degassing chamber the ozone rich atmosphere and the
water separate allowing the atmospheric ozone passes through our unique
Residual Ozone Filter and the purified water to exit the output at the
bottom. Although the atmospheric ozone is separated it is suggested that
the water exiting the output run over a bag of carbon so the ozone
oxidation by-products can be removed. This unique path of water flow,
coupled with the sizing of the fittings and pipe, is what creates a
pre-set internal pressure, eliminating the need for expensive
stainless steel pressure gauges.

Activated Carbon & Sock In order to reduce the level of ozone and
its toxic by-products (bromate, hypobromous acid, etc.) in the water
passing out of an ozone reaction chamber should pass over a suitable
amount of activated carbon.
- ORP Controller to monitor and control ORP levels within the aquarium is recommended.
