Overview

* 6,000 gph gyre-generating water movement device for aquariums
* Produces massive water movement throughout the entire aquarium
* Delivers custom beneficial flow in large aquariums up to 1,000 gallons

Massive water movement solution for large aquarium displays. Maxspect Riptide Gyre Generator XF-280 is the big bother of the popular Maxspect Riptide Gyre Generator Models XF-130 and XF-150 delivering an impressive 6,000 gph flow rate! Innovative, elongated paddle-wheel design generates a broad, powerful stream for massive water movement throughout the entire aquarium for effective elimination of low-flow dead spots in your aquarium!

Maxspect Riptide Gyre Generator XF-280 produces powerful shear water-flow that travels the entire length of the aquarium. Once traveling from one side of the aquarium to the other, the water flow bounces back, travelling near the bottom of the aquarium producing a circular gyre flow that leaves little to no dead spots in its wake.

The Maxspect Riptide Gyre Generator XF-280 can be installed horizontally or vertically to suit your water movement needs. Magnetic mounting system allows quick and convenient installation. Great for reef aquariums and any system requiring comprehensive water movement.

Features:
  • Revolutionary cross flow technology
  • Discrete design
  • Virtually no dead spots
  • Evenly distributed flow
  • Gyre generating flows
  • Redesigned stronger propellers
  • Upgraded controller

Maxspect Riptide Gyre Generator XF-280
Crossflow Technology vs Propeller Nozzle Technology

Gyre Generation - New Crossflow Technology
  • Virtually no dead spots
  • Evenly distributed flow rate throughout the entire aquarium
  • Water bounces back form the other side to create a full circulation, i.e. generating "gyre flows"

Versus

Propeller Nozzle Technology – Standard Propeller Nozzle Technology

  • Dead spots with relatively poor water movement
  • Very strong flow in the center, making coral placement very difficult
  • Very weak flow near the other end of the aquarium

Next Generation of Water Moving Technology
The Maxspect Gyre is the world's first "gyre" generating water moving device for aquariums. Compared to traditional powerheads and wavemakers that are based on propeller nozzle flow technology, the Maxspect Gyre is based on advanced cross flow technology, which produces massive horizontal water movement leaving little to no dead spots in its wake.

Why gyre generator and not wavemaker?
Wavemakers excel in making waves, while waves are spectacular to watch in motion, they are in fact moving the majority of the water vertically up and down, with relatively low horizontal movement, especially near the bottom of the aquarium.

On the other hand, gyre generators excel in moving sheer flow of water from one side of the aquarium to the other. The sheer flow of water is so strong that it would bounce back from the opposite site to achieve full circulation within an aquarium, i.e. generating "gyre flows".
