In 2006, TUNZE® developed the “nanostream®” concept. The Turbelle® nanostream® is a compact propeller pump for nano and medium-sized aquariums, and able to convince through its organic ball-shaped design, as well as a 3D current flow which is adjustable in every direction without additional accessories. The pump contains a very large intake strainer for the sucked in water, which helps prevent a premature pollution.
This innovative circulation pump set a new record when it was launched onto the market: with a diameter of only 70 mm (2.7”) it enables a water flow of 4,500 l/h (1,189 USgal./h) with an energy consumption of only 5 W (18 W and 5,500 l/h (1,452 USgal./h)) for the electronic version. As the first pump of its kind on the market it was also supplied with a magnet holder, which enables an easy attachment at any position on the aquarium glass pane with a thickness up to 19 mm (¾”).
WHAT IS IT THAT MAKES THE TURBELLE® PROPELLER PUMP SO SPECIAL?
Very silent operation
Special synthetic or magnetic bearings and the Silence holder included as standard enable very silent operation.
Flexible 3D adjustment
Unlike other pumps, the Turbelle® provides important flexibility regarding positioning and direction of the water jet. The water jet can be directed in such a way that a long distance in the aquarium is covered, producing an efficient current at low power consumption.
Large intake surface
The big intake strainer prevents early soiling and protects the animals against being sucked in.
High-performance motors with eco-energetic concept offer very high efficiency at very low maintenance requirements and power consumption.
The safety extra low voltage, electronic speed-control Turbelle® is ideal for use in any aquarium with wave or high/low tide simulation. Its intelligent microprocessor-controlled motor together with Multicontroller or SmartController 7000 make an invincible team.
With Magnet holder as a standard
The Turbelle®, as a standard accessory, features a magnet holder for easy fixing anywhere on the aquarium pane.
Power failure – no problem
The electronic speed control Turbelle® can be operated by any 10 V to 24 V DC supply (battery, solar cells) using the Safety Connector. The Safety Connector enables normal operation using the TUNZE® power supply and will switch to a battery or DC supply automatically in the case of a power failure.
IN ADDITION TO THE LIGHTING...
conditions, the current flow is the most important parameter within the aquarium, especially for saltwater biotopes. The following examples explain which flow situations can be found in different reef zones, and how they can be reproduced with Turbelle® flow systems.
The recommended combinations are suitable for aquariums from approx. 200 to 2,000 liters (from 52 to 528 USgal.). Further recommendations, specific examples, or recommendations for freshwater biotopes can also be found on our website in the TUNZE® configurator section at www.tunze.com, or they can be requested by email.
BEACH ZONE / ALGAL ZONE
Medium-strong and gentle oscillating current. This sandy zone is frequently inhabited by algae and anemones.
TUNZE® current: Wavebox or Turbelle® nanostream® / stream in wave mode with circular current of the filter pump.
CROSS-OVER ZONE / MICRO ATOLLS
Average current with small waves; high tide and low tide slightly noticeable. This zone contains the first coral formations.
TUNZE® current: Wavebox or Turbelle® nanostream® / stream in wave mode with Multicontroller / SmartController 7000 or 2 Turbelle® nanostream® / stream with Multicontroller / SmartController 7000.
INNER REEF EDGE
Stronger current influenced by tidal action, but low lapping of waves. Illumination is very important in this zone and produces magnificent growth of corals.
TUNZE® current: Wavebox or Turbelle® nanostream® / stream in wave mode plus Turbelle® nanostream® / stream with Multicontroller / SmartController 7000 or only 2 Turbelle® nanostream® / stream with Multicontroller / SmartController 7000.
Strong current influenced by tidal action and breaking of waves. The growth of coral is very dense in this zone.
TUNZE® current: Wavebox with operation in night mode plus two Turbelle® nanostream® / stream / masterstream with Multicontroller / SmartController 7000 or Turbelle® stream with Turbelle® e-jet with Multicontroller / SmartController 7000 or two Turbelle® masterstream with Multicontroller / SmartController 7000.
OUTER REEF EDGE
Zone of the reef with the strongest current - wave motion and illumination are very intensive. Acropora coral polyps, favia corals, porites hard corals thrive especially well in this zone.
TUNZE® current: Wavebox or Turbelle® nanostream® / stream in wave mode plus 2 Turbelle® stream with Multicontroller / SmartController 7000 or 2 Turbelle® masterstream with Multicontroller / SmartController 7000.
OUTER REEF SLOPE
Strong current with slight waves and high illumination. The variety of species and the number of hard corals is very high.
TUNZE® current: Turbelle® nanostream® / stream / masterstream with Multicontroller / SmartController 7000.
