Titanium "Helix" Heat Exchanger

Unique titanium coil design allows for maximum contact exposure. The absolute best element for heat exchange and corrosion resistance on the market.


Energy Efficiency

These units provide the highest BTU (British Thermal Units) heat removal capacity with the lowest amperage draw.


Automatic Temp Control with Digital LED Display

The state-of-the-art digital LED thermostat system will automatically control the temperature within +1/-1 Fahrenheit from your desired set point. Bright LED allows for constant temperature reading with an easy calibration function. JBJ has even added a Thermal Chip in the control system that will prevent the heat exchanger from freezing due to controller failure or low water flow. The Smart-Chip will store and reset the controller in case of a power failure.

Product Questions

What kind of water pump is needed for the unit? Also can this be altered to 115v?
Question by: Karol on Dec 24, 2021, 5:26 PM
Hello Karol,

Thanks for the question. You need a pump that can provide a flow rate between 954 GPH and 1428 GPH. I would not recommend altering the Voltage used. The manufacturer advise for this product says "Requires 200VAC-240VAC power to operate. Plug is not included. May be wired directly to circuit. We highly recommend consulting a licensed electrician for installation."

Happy Reefing.
