Maxspect GYRE




REVOLUTIONARY TECHNOLOGY !

Wavemakers excel in making waves, while waves are spectacular to watch in motion, they are in fact moving the majority of water vertically up and down, with relatively low horizontal movement, especially near the bottom of the aquarium

Optimal Water Flow

The flow generated with the Maxspect Gyre is ideal for most corals.
Due to its cross-flow technology, the Gyre allows a uniform distribution of the flow, avoiding dead zones in the aquarium..

Why gyre generator and not wave maker?

Wavemakers excel in making waves, while waves are spectacular to watch in motion, they are in fact moving the majority of water vertically up and down, with relatively low horizontal movement, especially near the bottom of the aquarium, as illustrated with this diagram.


 

Gyre horizontally      

Gyre vertically 

 

On the other hand, gyre generators excel in moving sheer flow of water from one side of the aquarium to the other side. The sheer flow of water is so strong, that it would bounce back from the other side of the aquarium to achieve full circulation with-in an aquarium, i.e. generating “gyre flows”.

 

Propeller nozzle technology

 

  

A. Dead spots with relatively poor water movement.

B. Very strong flow in the center, making coral placement very difficult
 
C. Very weak flow near the other end of the aquarium.


 

Cross flow technology

 

 

A. Virtually no dead spots.

B. Evenly distributed flow rate throughout the entire aquarium

C. Water bounces back from the other side to create a full circulation, i.e. Generating « gyre flows »


 

Optimal Water Flow

The flow generated with the Maxspect Gyre is ideal for most corals.

Due to its cross-flow technology, the Gyre allows a uniform distribution of the flow, avoiding dead zones in the aquarium..

The Gyre allows adjustment of the current in two different directions.

The Maxspect Gyre allows also a reversal flow

New !

The pumps will remain the same, the controller has been changed, has many more functions and can now control 2 Gyre pumps in the same!

Example of a 24 hour cycle.

 

2 preset modes are also available with the new controller

Preset 1 – The Lunar Tidal Cycle (LTC)

The Lunar Tidal Cycle (LTC) is a 24-hours cycle that mimic the kind of water current in the ocean during high and low tides.

Preset 2 – The Oceanic Gyre Cycle (OGC)

The Oceanic Gyre Cycle (OGC) is a 24-hours cycle that creates a gentle alternating gyre circulation within your aquarium.
