Product information

Disposable or reusable CO2 cylinder?
There are 2 different cylinder types: disposable cylinders that are disposed of and recycled after emptying and reusable cylinders that can be refilled again and again. Many pet shops and gas companies can carry out the refilling. If you live in a region where refilling is a problem, the disposable cylinder can be an alternative. Should the refilling situation improve, you can always convert the disposable pressure reducer into a reusable pressure reducer in 2 minutes by unscrewing the adapter (JBL PROFLORA ADAPT U-M). Aquarium owners who live on islands (as an example) are sometimes not allowed to transport filled reusable cylinders by ferry or plane. Disposable cylinders are then sometimes allowed!

The size of the cylinder often depends on the cabinet in which the CO2 storage cylinder is to be placed: A 500 g disposable bottle is only 31 cm high (plus pressure reducer = 37 cm), a 500 g reusable bottle with stand is already 43 cm high and a 2000 g bottle 45.5 cm high. Basically, of course, a larger cylinder is an advantage, because it simply needs to be replaced or refilled less frequently.

TÜV inspection of the CO2 cylinders: All reusable CO2 cylinders must be inspected regularly, every 10 years, by the TÜV (at least in Germany). On the cylinder you will always find - though sometimes badly legibly - the date of the last TÜV inspection and sometimes the year of the next inspection.

FAQ
Der Druckminderer lässt sich nicht entfernen

Vermutlich steht Ihr System noch unter Druck. Schließen Sie das Flaschenventil und montieren den CO2-Schlauch von der Druckregelarmatur ab. Öffnen Sie die Regulierschraube und lassen den in der Druckregelarmatur noch vorhandenen Druck ab, bis beide Manometer 0 bar anzeigen. Lösen Sie die Anschlussmutter der Druckregelarmatur vom Flaschenventil.

Pressure reducer for disposable and reusable cylinders at the same time?

Yes, this is possible without any problems with the JBL PROFLORA CO2 REGULATOR. If you have the SET U, you can connect reusable cylinders with the JBL PROFLORA CO2 ADAPT U - M adapter. This adapter is already installed in the SET M and can be removed with an Allen key. This makes it possible to install JBL CO2 disposable cylinders in the sizes 500g and 1200g. An ideal option for bridging the gap between bottle filling or during the holiday phase for your substitute carer.

Is it normal that the working pressure fluctuates minimally and decreases towards the end of the cylinder filling?

Yes, this behaviour is normal. The CO2 is liquefied under pressure in the gas cylinder. At 20° C it is 57 bar. If the content decreases slowly and the temperature drops/rises, it may also have an effect on the working pressure. Check the cylinder pressure, as the cylinder is probably almost completely empty.

Can the 1200g disposable cylinder also be used with the older JBL CO2 systems?

Yes, this is possible without any problems. The JBL PROFLORA CO2 CYLINDER 1200 U also fits the older pressure reducers of the JBL PROFLORA u range.

May the JBL PROFLORA CO2 products only be used for the aquarium?

Yes, the JBL PROFLORA CO2 products are designed exclusively for use in the aquarium. The gas contained promotes plant growth and works with fine precision so that even the smallest quantities can be supplied to the aquarium. Constant operation and the safety of the fish are thus guaranteed.
