CO2 generator Yuri-TPV.


CO2 generator Yuri-TPV. More than a year of samples, experiments, and the use of carbon dioxide generation system with soda and citric acid approbation several dozen on a nearby aquarium, a very well-respected resource and invaluable contribution to the further development and promotion of my circuit (valves) and the development of close, but more technological valveless system my friend and fellow countryman Paul (tpv) have led to the fact that we can offer a workable wave generators, in its various versions can simply be removed from the aquarium Braga, and, in some cases, and compete with small balloon systems. And, clearly superior to them in terms of security. By mutual agreement, we decided to name this group of devices "generators of CO2 Yuri-TPV". Accordingly valve and valveless system.

Can you give details on how much and how long the CO2 is generated?

Also can you translate the diagram to English?

CO2 generator running 14 to 25 days. The author of the design of this system runs one every 6 months. But this should be read in detail. It has neskolmrj greater volume. Siplzuyutsya bottles from 0.5 to 2 liters. Accordingly, the filling tank is different. I will translate the scheme a little later, and describe in English kanstruktsiyu. I could give a reference to the Russian forum, but here in my do not.

Here's a video on the assembly and launch.
Relief valve assembly.

Further manufacture connector.

Now you can begin to assemble the generator

Next, we make the gas supply line from the generator to the aquarium

Now we have one small step before starting the generator, you need to install a glass soda bottle for soda. I do it so

All run. Do not forget, in this case, we need to run an additional seal the lid.

My meetings with regard to the CO2 generator valveless scheme works 27-30 days.

That's the highest "low-tech" co2 I've ever seen

Maybe if I spoke more Russian I would "get it", but how's that any different/more efficient than using yeast/sugar mixture if you have to replenish the ingredients every 2-3 weeks?

This looks like you have the CO2, generated by citric acid and baking soda, being used to put pressure on a bottle of citric acid to force it to keep dripping into the bottle of baking soda/citric acid. I can see some advantage to doing this, but the amount of CO2 most aquariums need is so small that a yeast and sugar system seems better to me. Why is this an improvement over yeast/sugar?

I don't think it's an improvement, just an alternative.

This is better because the system pressure stable and it does not decrease until the end of the cycle. This system does not respond to temperature as yeast. Those who have tried the system rejected the yeast and sugar.

That is a very interesting alternative to yeast/sugar systems, and if it can maintain a steady CO2 pressure or bubble rate it should work better with high light than yeast/sugar systems do.

Is the baking soda dissolved in water, or just dry? I think it would work best with the soda dissolved in water, with the acid dripping in to maintain the pH of the solution.

This should be a lot cheaper than using pressurized CO2 with a regulator, needle valve, etc.
