Twenty6是ACI Aquaculture公司研发的一款新配方海盐,专门用于满足专业和商业珊瑚养殖者的需求。几年前,人们证明了廉价海盐不够干净,而更好、更昂贵的海盐的水平不够稳定。那时,ACI开始研究制造海水混合物。

 

一些较好的盐与不同水平的碱度混合,有时会形成粘土膜或矿物结块。这表明混合物中含有杂质。这些问题只出现在商业水族馆中,他们每周需要混合数千加仑的海水。为了解决上述问题,ACI开始研究和混合他们自己的海水配方。

 

 

ACI Aquaculture公司一开始研发Twenty6是采用海水的“教科书公式”,然后选用最优质、最纯净的成分。Twenty6海盐混合物强调无水成分,即钙、镁和其他主要元素的来源中含有较少的水分子,因此结晶化合物中的杂质较少。

 

这使得海水混合物非常干净,但也意味着放热反应更加强烈。因此,在使用Twenty6海盐前,提前几个小时将其混合和循环就非常重要了。Twenty6为要求更高的玩家提供了更优质的选择。

 

 

Twenty6的优点之一是,它的所有成分都经过精心称量,每次使用1200磅进行小量生产。经过一年的常规使用和测试,这款产品已经十分成熟,非常干净,对珊瑚的健康、颜色和生长速度有积极作用。

 

Twenty6有两种规格,分别是144.5加仑(547升)和72.25加仑(273升),两者都采用简易罐装。目前,Twenty6产品系列的重点是海盐混合物,其他添加剂正在开发中。

 

 

原文:

Twenty6 is a new formula of salt offered by ACI Aquaculture to specifically address the needs of professional and commercial coral handlers. ACI began looking into making their own seawater mix several years ago when cheap salts proved to be not clean enough, and better, more expensive salts didn’t mix up to consistent levels. 

 

Some of the better salts mixed up with a variable level in alkalinity and sometimes the mixing vats would develop a clay film and or mineral caking, a sign of impurities in the mix. These are the kinds of issues that arise only in commercial settings where thousands of gallons of seawater are mixed up each week, and to resolve their issues ACI looked into developing and mixing their own seawater formula. 

 

Twenty6 was developed by starting out with a ‘textbook formula’ for seawater, and then sourcing the highest quality, purest ingredients possible. The most important philosophy with Twenty6 salt mix is a big emphasis on anhydrous ingredients, that is, sources of calcium, magnesium and other major elements with less water in the molecule, and therefore less impurities trapped in the crystalline compounds. 

 

This results in a very clean seawater mix but it also means there is a strong exothermic reaction, and it’s important to let Twenty6 salt mix and circulate for at least several hours before using. By introducing Twenty6 ACI Aquaculture is not aiming to take over the market, but simply to offer a superior formula for discerning hobbyists. 

 

One of the advantages of Twenty6 salt is that it is made in extremely small batches of just 1200 pounds at a time, with all the ingredients being meticulously weighed out. After a year of regular use and testing ACI stands behind the new Twenty6 salt, both in the cleanliness of their mixing vats but mostly in the health, color and growth rates of their corals. 

 

Twenty6 salt will be available in two sizes, a 144.5 gallon mix and a 72.25 gal size, both of which will be shipped in jerry cans instead of buckets. Small quantities of Twenty6 salt will only be available to local customers in the Tampa, Florida area, or in half and full pallets anywhere in the country shipped from their production facility. For now the emphasis of the new Twenty6 product line is on the salt mix, but other additives are in development for future release.
