That's not a problem at all, its designed to be run outside the sump.
This reactor would require a feed pump to supply aquarium water to the reactor. They recommend a pump between 270 and 530gph. The sicce syncra silent 2.0 would be a good choice as its up to 568gph and has an adjustable inlet on the pump to adjust the flow.
This reactor can be ran both internally as well as externally : )
