A water flow accelerator is a great way to add extra water flow to your aquarium. By increasing water circulation, you can help to increase oxygenation, reduce dead spots and prevent detritus from accumulating.
They can be used in closed-loop applications or can simply be attached to your return water line. The best part about flow accelerators is that they increase flow, up to 400%, without any additional electricity consumption or added heat.
By utilizing the water stream from your pump, the flow accelerator draws in additional water from the intake side of the flow accelerator. That larger volume of water is then compressed through a narrow channel accelerating the speed of water. The outlet of the flow accelerator then takes that strong stream of water and disperses it throughout your aquarium.
The Penductor simply screws into the aquarium water return line or can be adapted to many water pumps or powerheads. Flexible ball socket joints allows you to direct the water where you need it most.
All Accel Aquatics Flow Accelerators include multiple adapter sizes, so they can be installed on just about any pump or bulkhead. The Nano Vortex includes ½” and ¾” threaded adapters, while the other models come standard with ½”, ¾” and 1” threaded adapters. 6” ball-socket extensions are also available to allow you to place the Flow Accelerator anywhere in your aquarium and be able to direct the flow accelerator in any direction.
If you are looking to increase the water flow in your aquarium or are looking for ways to reduce/eliminate dead spots in your aquarium, we recommend looking at the Accel Aquatics Flow Accelerators and picking out a style that works best for you! There are several different Accel Aquatics Flow Accelerators available all of which produce a slightly different flow pattern.
