Electrical appliances: Compressor

Any aquarium occupy fish and other creatures needing oxygen. Aquarium Compressors designed to enrich water with this very oxygen. A filter operating in the normal mode copes well with this function by mixing water with its surface, oxygen-rich layer.

But in an emergency case, for example, with the massive death of fish, filter failure, etc. without additional aeration in a decorative aquarium just can not do.

One of the disadvantages compressor is the noise level at work. Even a virtually silent model will start to make noise after a while.

In contrast to the compressor, the noise level emitted by the filter is zero, since the turbine is constantly in the water. Also, the disadvantages of compressors include an increase in the volume of evaporated water and, in the presence of cover glasses, their rapid contamination. But, despite all the above factors, you need to buy a compressor for the aquarium.

Sometimes additional aeration is almost the only way to save the life of inhabitants aquarium. In addition, in many decorations with revolving or leaning parts (grottoes with sandy waterfalls, opening chests), the flow of water is created with the help of air.

For these bubbles soaring to the surface you can watch for hours. However, the pump in the decorative aquarium should not work all the time.

The compressor can be safely called the lungs of the aquarium. It provides oxygen to all the inhabitants of the underwater world.

And therefore this device should work without failures. Currently, manufacturers of equipment for the aquarium offer a wide selection of compressors – from low-cost devices to models of class Hi-End.

Varieties of aquarium compressors.

Compressors are of two types: piston and membrane. In a piston compressor, air is supplied to the aquarium by means of a piston. This type of compressor has high power and a large resource, but along with these advantages the noise level during its operation is quite high, as well as the price.

Air in the aquarium membrane compressor delivers using a rubber membrane. The power of this type of compressor, as a rule, is not large, the noise level is lower.

According to the location of the compressor can be divided into external and internal. What type of compressor to choose depends solely on the wishes of the aquarist.

What is guided when buying a compressor? One and all compressors possess such characteristics as: noise level during the work; the amount of air per unit of time (usually per hour).

It can be said with confidence that the quieter the compressor pumps the air volume that corresponds to the aquarium, the better.
