Simplicity UV-Catalytic

Product Details

Simplicity UV-Catalytic Chemical Reactor employs a permanent titanium-dioxide catalyst to break down organic aquarium waste and a special blend of reef grade carbon and ferric-hydroxide-oxide to remove this waste out of the aquarium.

The photo catalytic reaction utilizes none-germicidal UV light to generate hydroxyl and super oxide radicals on the surface of the catalytic cell. These radicals break down complex organic molecules and completely mineralize them into carbon dioxide, water, and mineral acids. The Simplicity Reactor Media scavenges the broken down waste, as well as phosphates, silicates, and other waste byproducts. When using the Simplicity UV-Catalytic Reactor and the Simplicity Reactor Media according to instructions, no other use of chemical filter media will be necessary to achieve total nutrient control.


  • Reactor accepts up to 16 oz of Simplicity Reactor Media.
  • 50 - 200 GPH flow rate.
  • Bagless operation. No bags, no mess!
  • 300-micron replaceable screens.
  • Self-cleaning feature.
