Maxspect Gyre Generator 50wThe next generation of water-moving technology is here.
The Maxspect Gyre is the world's first "gyre"- generating water moving device for aquariums and fish tanks. Compared to traditional powerheads and wavemakers that are based on propeller nozzle flow technology, the Maxspect Gyre is based on advanced cross-flow technology which produces massive horizontal water movement leaving little to no deadspots in its wake.
New -Crossflow Technology
1) Virtually no dead spots
2) Evenly distributed flow rate throughout the entire aquarium
3) Water bounces back from the other side to create a full circulation, ie. generating "gyre flows"
Why GYRE GENERATOR and not a WAVEMAKER?
Wavemakers excel in making waves, while waves are spectacular to watch in motion, they are in fact moving the majority of the water vertically up and down, with relatively low horizontal movement, especially near the bottom of the aquarium.
Gyre generators excel in moving sheer flow of water from one side of the aquarium to the other. The sheer flow of water is so strong that i would bounce back from the opposite site to achieve full circulation within an aquarium, ie. generating "gyre flows".
