Heating and Chilling Equipment
To ensure the success of any aquatic system it is essential that fluctuations in any water parameters are
avoided. Large fluctuations will result in stress, not only for the livestock, but also for the biofauna associated
with the biological filters (which are essential for maintaining good water quality).This stress can in turn either
directly affect the health of the livestock, or compromise its immune system, leaving it open to secondary
infections (usually opportunistic bacteria or ciliates). One of the principal parameters to maintain is
temperature. Aside from the importance of maintaining the temperature itself, it is also worth remembering
that many other water parameters are also affected by temperature, for example pH and salinity.
In order to identify the correct equipment, it is necessary to understand the application, as well as the
environment, in which it is to be installed. Factors such as heat inputs from other equipment (e.g. pumps
and lights) and seasonal variations in air temperature (maximum summer temperatures as well as
minimum winter temperatures need to be taken into consideration!) will determine whether a heater
and/or chiller is required. Most installations will require both forms and it is worth noting that
Teco units are available as conditioners, which are capable of heating as well as chilling.
Braude Immersion Heaters
Immersion heaters provide a simple solution for heating water
bodies, and unlike traditional flow through heaters they do not
require a pumped water supply.These types of heaters are widely
used in various applications in the Public Aquarium,Aquaculture and
Aquatics industries, either as the primary heating source, or as a
convenient back up heating system (in tank or on the shelf).
The Polaris Popular is manufactured from high integrity
fluoropolymers to give excellent performance in corrosive solutions,
making it ideally suited for use in both marine and freshwater
installations.The element is designed to give free flow of liquid
across the surface and to restrict solid deposition. The relatively small size of the units means that they
do not protrude into the tank too much, and can be easily concealed in display tanks.The Popular is
supplied with hanging brackets for vertical mounting or stand-offs for horizontal mounting.
• Completely non-corrodable
• Easy installation
• High thermal efficiency
