Nyos Torqs 是近几年来市面上海水行业中最具创新的煮豆机了。该产品在今年五月德国宠物展首次亮相。Nyos公司不断对该款煮豆机调整和改进,最终版终于与全球珊瑚爱好者们见面。

 

鉴于大部分煮豆机基于一个桶身和泵,或者无泵组成。Nyos提供了两个独特的部分,Torq Dock  Torq Body。和预期的一样,Torq Dock 作为反应器的基础,装配了水泵。每小时过水1000升,功耗为12W


 

Torq Body有三种型号。分别为Body2.0,Body1.0Body0.75.2.0型号直径为10mm,高为430mm,在安装了Torq Dock后总高540mmBody1.0Body2.0一样高度,直径为70mm Body 0.75直径与Body1.0一样,高仅为350mm,在安装了Torq Dock后总高450mm

 

Nyos Torq有两个极为便利之处,首先,Body可以轻而易举的安装拆除,方便维护。第二,通过旋转BodyDock的阀门,可以容易地调节流速/流量——如果流量太大,则通过调整泵入口上的滑动刻度盘可以进一步减少输出。


 

Torq流出的水实际上从反应仓的两侧流下来,我们担心这可能会产生大量的飞溅,因为机器运行时水流冲击到了水面上。当我们第一次运行Torq时,发现了这个小问题,但是几天后,丙烯酸残余物被冲走,它变得非常安静。

 

Body0.75售价179美元(约人民币1200元),对于一个小型煮豆机来说略贵。如果你在寻找微型煮豆机,肯定有更小、更实惠的选择。

 

不过,如果你对Body2.0感兴趣,想用在大型珊瑚缸上,225美元(约合人民币1500元)的售价是比同等级煮豆机有相当竞争力的。Nyos Torq煮豆机真正引人注目的地方在于易于使用和快速维护,当更换NP豆、氢氧化铁或活性炭时,这将是一种享受。

The Nyos Torq is one of the most innovative new media reactor designs we’ve seen in the reef aquarium hobby for several years. First revealed in Germany at InterZoo back in May, Nyos has been tweaking and refining the Nyos reactor ever since and now it’s finally trickling out to reefers globally. 

 

Whereas most media reactors are a basic tube which may or may not include a pump, Nyos saw the need to offer up the Torq as two distinct components, the Torq Dock and the Torq Body. As you might expect, the Torq Dock is the base of the reactor which contains the pump driving the assembly. The pump inside the Torq Dock is rated for up to 1,000 liters per hour (264gph) with a power consumption of 12 watts.

 

The Torq Body is available in three different sizes, a 2.0 liter, a 1.0 liter and a 0.75 liter. The Body 2.0 is 100 mm in diameter and 17 inches tall, or 21 inches overall when mounted to the Torq Dock. The Body 1.0 is the same heigh as the 2.0 but 70 mm in diameter. Finally the Body 0.75 is the same diameter as the Body 1.0 but only 14 inches tall, or 18 inches overall when coupled with the dock. 

 

The Nyos Torq has two neat tricks up its acrylic sleeve; first is how the Body is quickly attached and removed from the Torq Base, making for quick maintenance and refill of the media inside the chamber of the body. Secondly, the flow rate/flow through can be easily adjusted by twisting the Body relative to the Dock – and if that’s too much flow out of the gate the output can be further reduced by a sliding dial on the pump intake.

 

The water exiting the Torq actually flows down the sides of the reactor chamber and we had concerns that this might produce a lot of splashing as it crashed into the water surface into which it is operating. This was a minor issue when we first set up the Torq but after a couple days the hydrophobic residue of the acrylic washes away and it became significantly quieter.

 

At a price of between $179 for the Dock with the 0.75 Body the Nyos Torq is certainly a premium price for a small media reactor. If you’re looking for a nano reactor there are certainly much smaller and more affordable options out there.

 

However if you’re really interested in the Torq for the larger 2.0 liter for use on a large tank, the combination Dock and Body is ‘only’ $225 which is actually quite competitive compared to similar medium to large media reactors. Where the Nyos Torq media reactor really stands out is in the ease of use and quick maintenance which will feel like a luxury when changing out biopellets, GFO or activated carbon.
