One of the greatest advantages the Hydra Aquatics BioPellet Reactor has over its competitors lies in its innovative design. Hydra Aquatics has solved the two most common problems that plague standard media reactors by incorporating an inverted conical bottom and a top-fed flow accelerator.
Most media reactors use a bottom-fed flow diffusion method through a plate. This smooth, constant flow is typically referred to as up-flow or reverse flow. Unfortunately, using this type of flow inside a media reactor usually causes lighter filter media to clump at the top and denser media to settle at the bottom. Using Hydra Aquatics inverted conical bottom and top-fed flow accelerator design, it is impossible for the media to clump together or settle completely at the bottom.
