Product information

Nutrition for aquarium plants
Plants provide the aquarium with vital oxygen for your aquarium inhabitants, prevent algae growth, remove pollutants, provide hiding places and reduce pathogens. Plant fertiliser systems with CO2 cylinders supply the plants with the main nutrient CO2 through the water. The plants absorb this and convert it into sugar and oxygen in photosynthesis with the help of light.

Easy to install
The system comes completely ready to connect. Screw the pressure reducer onto the CO2 storage cylinder and connect it by hose to the bubble counter (incl. backflow protection) and then to the reactor in the aquarium. CO2 thus enters the aquarium and is dissolved in the water with the help of the reactor. The CO2 supply can be interrupted at night when a solenoid valve (night switch-off: not included) is connected. The CO2/pH Permanent Test permanently indicates the amount of CO2 dissolved in the water and can then be readjusted if necessary.

Safe
The storage cylinder is TÜV tested. Thanks to the check valve no water can enter the cylinder. The capacity of a CO2 system depends on various factors. The carbonate hardness, the quantity and species of the plants and the strength of the water surface movement are decisive. A 500 g cylinder which is not switched off by a solenoid valve during the night lasts for about 4 months in its default setting. The reusable cylinders can be refilled in specialist shops.

Conversion from disposable to reusable cylinders and vice versa:
All JBL CO2 pressurised gas cylinder systems are compatible with each other. With the reusable system (M system), the union nut of the pressure reducer can simply be unscrewed with an Allen key. The pressure reducer then fits the U system (disposable cylinders).

FAQ
Welchen Arbeitsdruck benötige ich mindestens für die Verwendung der JBL CO2 Zubehörartikel?

Alle Rückschlagventile bzw. Rücklaufsicherungen von JBL benötigen einen Arbeitsdruck von mindestens 0,6 bar, damit sich das Ventil öffnet. Diese Eigenschaft ist bei den JBL PROFLORA CO2 TAIFUN SAFESTOP, COUNTSAFE und INLINE zu finden. Die JBL PROFLORA TAIFUN Diffusoren arbeiten ebenfalls alle bereits mit diesem Druck. Ein höherer Arbeitsdruck ist nicht notwendig, weshalb alle Zubehörteile auch mit den JBL PROFLORA BIO SETs funktionieren. Installationsbedingt kann durch lange Schläuche und andere Bauteile ein etwas höherer Arbeitsdruck notwendig sein, weshalb die Voreinstellung in jedem Fall ausreichend ist.

Ist es normal, dass der Arbeitsdruck minimal schwankt und gegen Ende der Flaschenfüllung abnimmt?

Ja, dieses Verhalten ist normal. Das CO2 wird unter Druck in der Gasflasche verflüssigt. Bei 20° C sind es 57 bar. Nimmt der Inhalt langsam ab und die Temperatur fällt/steigt, kann es auch einen Einfluss auf den Arbeitsdruck haben. Prüfen Sie den Flaschendruck, da ggf. die Flasche vermutlich fast vollständig entleert ist.

Dürfen die JBL PROFLORA CO2 Produkte nur für das Aquarium genutzt werden?

Ja, die JBL PROFLORA CO2 Produkte sind ausschließlich für die Anwendung im Aquarium konzipiert. Das enthaltene Gas fördert das Pflanzenwachstum und arbeitet mit feiner Präzision, damit auch Kleinstmengen dem Aquarium zugeführt werden können. Der konstante Betrieb und die Sicherheit der Fische sind damit gewährleistet.

Is a special action necessary when using CO₂ compressed gas cylinders?

Please note two important points:

1) Cylinder: Reusable cylinders are TÜV tested and this is stamped on the cylinder. This test needs to be renewed every 10 years, with the bottom of the cylinder and the valve sealing and threaded joint being tested.

2) The carbon dioxide:
Depending on its concentration, carbon dioxide is harmful in the air.
The respiratory rate and pulse rate increase at a carbon dioxide concentration of 3-5%. Other symptoms are headaches, discomfort and ringing in the ears. Carbon dioxide concentrations of 8-10% and more cause these symptoms to become more pronounced. This may lead to cramps, fainting, apnoea and death from suffocation.

One 500 g cylinder contains 500 g CO2. This is equal to 11.36 mol (chemical substance amount unit). One mol of a gaseous substance has a volume of 22.414 l under normal conditions (273.15 K, 101325 Pa), so that 500 g of CO2 result in a volume of 254.7 l. CO2 is heavier than air, so that it collects on the ground. This corresponds to a CO2 height level in the range of 12.735 mm = 1.27 cm for a room of 20 m². If it is mixed completely with the air in a room of 20 m² and a height of 2.5 m (corresponds to 50,000 l), this corresponds to a maximum gas concentration of 0.5 volume %, which is well below the dangerous level.
