PO4X4 Phosphate Remover Claims to be 4x More Efficient than GFOPosted on Saturday, May 7th, 2011 at 10:33 am by ReefTools
Reef Interestes (RI), the company who brought us NP Reducing BioPellets and ReefPearls, has something new for us. PO4X4 Phosphate Remover is said to be chemically engineered polymer that can absorb approximately 4x more phosphates than most phosphate removing products. Other differences notes by the company are that PO4X4 will not leak nearly as much Iron-ions into the water column. RI states that “Almost every other iron based GFO is releasing iron-ions to the water up to 10 times more than natural seawater levels. This is tested and confirmed at the university of Wageningen, Holland.” One other advantage of PO4x4 is that the pellets do not clump together, and therefore can be used in fluidized reactors with lower flow.
PO4x4 Phosphate Remover is available in both 250ml and 500ml. A 250 ml package is said to remove 3ppm of phosphate and silicate from approximately 8,000 liters (2113 gallons) of fresh water, or 4,000 liters (1056 gallons) of saltwater.
