DIY Reactor Size Suggestions
Just setting up a pressurized system and would like to build a reactor(griggs) for my dissolution method. Can anyone offer me a starting point with the dimensions of the pvc. I am aware there are quite a few variables but I'll list my setup and hope one of you has experience with some of these items.
Canister - 404b rated @ 525gph. ¾" tubing inside diameter. Below is a representation of canister internals
- Matrix Bio Media
- Fine Filtration (Beige Doctor Fosters Pads @ 2½")
- Coarse & Fine (Blue Bonded Foster Pads @ 2½")
From there tube is 20" before arriving at Hydor Inline Heater. After the heater, 12" of tubing before reaching the spray-bar attachment at the rim of the tank.
Height from top of canister outflow to top of tank 28"
I am well aware there is no definitive answer to, what length/diameter should I use, but if someone could get me in the ballpark I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you for your time and consideration - Carpathian
