Maxspect Turbine Duo 9 – dual return pump w/controller (~9500 l/h /~66W)
Let’s to to the fact that this pump has TWO freaking outlets! You can’t control the speed of each volute separately but you can direct them to different places.
So if you’re splitting your return line to the tank, now you can go ahead and do this natively, or you can combine the flow with a specially designed Y-adapter which
is included with the Turbine Duo pump.
But really the Turbine Duo will really shine in applications where a separate water line is required to feed any number of accessories, notably a chiller, recirculating protein skimmer, or a manifold to feed a variety of media reactors. The ghetto way to accomplish this is to tee off the main return line, but this is not practical for fine tuned flow rates since any change to one valve will alter the others.
With the double outlet Turbine Duo Maxspect is not only pushing the envelope in terms of form factor and functionality, but it’s actually stretching the budget of reefers who desire to do more with less – that’s all of us right? Besides the limited head pressure the only other major ‘drawback’ to the Turbine Duo is the fact that it’s designed for internal use only, which should be fine because most reefers prefer to use internal pumps anyway, to reduce noise and the need for drilling bulkheads and potential leaks.
