The MRC xSeries Reactors is a new line of media reactors from one of America’s most trusted acrylic manufacturers, My Reef Creations. The new xSeries Reactors are just the tip of the iceberg for many new products we hope to see from MRC which will feature top level design, materials, and quality construction.
In recent years MRC has been focused on building commercial grade aquarium equipment, most notably very large skimmers and battle-ready sumps for exceptionally large tanks. But the MRC xSeries reactors is the first indication that My Reef hasn’t forgotten about its roots in the home marine aquarium hobby.
In addition to the exacting attention to detail, the MRC xSeries reactors have an exceptionally well designed diffusion plate to promote ‘True Reverse Flow’ in the reactor volume. The MRC xSeries feature custom blue ¼” translucent acrylic that enable a complete visual inspection of the bonds for quality control measures.
The freshly announced reactors from the xSeries includes two models, an X3 which holds 1430ml of media, and the X5 which holds 2740ml. Both the X3 and X5 are four inches in diameter with a 5.5 inch footprint, the X3 is 13 inches tall while the X5 is 21 inches tall.
There will also be an xSeries x3 ECO Kit from My Reef Creations which is a plug and play design that comes standard with the same efficient technology as the non kitted x3. plus 4? of vinyl tubing and an ECO 132 pump. The xSeries reactors are priced starting at $89 for the smaller X3 and will become available early 2016.
