VorTech MP40wES Propeller Pump
Item # 249320 / Manufacturer Part # MP40wES-US
Create gentle flows for your reef with the small and powerful VorTech MP40wES! Ideal for tanks from 50 to 500+ gallons at flow rates from 1000 to 3,200 gph. Broad flow helps reduce dead spots in your tank for even heating and nutrient distribution and to mimic natural undertow. All of your reef critters will get fed and detritus will be flushed into your filter for removal. Extremely energy efficient brushless external mounted motor saves you money compared to comparable pumps. External mounted motor also transmits less heat into your aquarium. Less heat in your tank means less money will be spent heating and cooling your tank. Wireless Eco Smart Driver model allows greater freedom when controlling the pump.
Can also be upgraded to battery backup with purchase of battery kit.
Features the following operational modes:
Constant Speed Mode - Pump runs continuously at a constant speed which can be set by the user.
EcoSmart Nutrient Transport Mode (NTM) - A two phase program to promote maximum health and nutrient export, as well as increased growth for corals. Alternates between a resonant standing wave and a surge effect to stir up and export nutrients.
EcoSmart Tidal Swell Mode (TSM) - Creates a harmonic balance in your aquarium reminiscent of the changing flow conditions that would be found in nature. Flow varies from left to right, right to left, calm, and ends with a great surge.
Reef Crest Random Mode - Reef Crest Random Mode simulates the high-energy conditions of a natural reef crest environment.
Lagoonal Random Mode - Simulates the gentler reef zone found in a natural lagoon.
Short Pulse Mode - Allows for wave pulse timings between 0.3 and two seconds, enabling the creation of FAST alternating flow throughout the tank. Use this mode to create a resonant standing wave.
Long Pulse Mode - Allows for wave pulse timings of between 2 seconds and 60 seconds, enabling the creation of slow alternating flow throughout the tank.
Feed Mode - Slows down pump to allow user to feed aquarium. User can select the duration and speed for Feed Mode.
Night Mode - Automatically reduce speed and operates continuously at that speed for a period of time during the night. User can select the duration and speed for Night Mode.
Battery Backup Mode - When used with our battery backup accessory, the VorTech pump will switch to Battery Backup Mode in the event of a power outage and will operate at a user set speed. The LED's on your EcoSmart driver will count down to indicate how much power is available within the battery.
Auto-Dim - LED's are turned off and display knob dimmed significantly, but pump functions in its current mode. User can program how long after use before the driver enters Auto-Dim.
On/Off Switch - Tap the on/off switch to turn off and turn on a pump. Hold this button to turn off all pumps in a master/slave group. Tap any pump in the groups' on/off switch and that pump will turn back on.
