Alphacool Geysir Double Power pump station, a new and improved concept with more stock power than ever before!
The concept behind the performance of this reservoir:
The Alphacool Geysir Double Power pump station is designed for installation of up to 2
Eheim submerged pumps. Either 2 Eheim 1000 or 600 pumps can be installed, depending on
the reservoir. A rebuilding kit will be available in June 2012, allowing both pump versions to
be mounted in one reservoir.
How does this reservoir work?
To use the reservoir, only one pump needs to be installed. For pump installation the top is removed, the pumps can be pushed in from below, and everything can be installed again. It is important to install the Eheim pumps with feet, as these also decouple the pumps from the reservoir. Before final installation, the power cable of the pump must be looped to the outside via the opening. We recommend using the 12V version of the Eheim pumps in combination with the new DC/AC converter card V.2 (Item No. 13161). Why? We will get to that at the end of this text!
Connection possibilities of the reservoir:
The top of the reservoir is equipped with a multitude of openings and connection threads. Filling is easy via the 1” thread, the pumps are integrated into the cooling loop via G1/4” threads. Thanks to many different possible configurations, the pumps can be used to create a 2-loop cooling system. Alternatively a Y-piece can be used for parallel operation of the pumps, utilizing the power of both for maximum flow. With two Eheim 1000 this means a maximum flow rate of 2000l/h at normal pump speed! But even more is possible with the converter card V2…
Of course a Fillpower opening is also implemented. For even more comfort and control, a thread for fill level indicator use is also integrated.
Every thread on the reservoir is labelled with ist designated application.
Black Plexi is used to make the bottom piece of the reservoir which houses the pumps. Transparent Plexi as material for the top allows view into the inside, the fittings feature a black respectively black nickel finish. A typical Alphacool copper logo shows that this is a true high-end product!
As the next step, two 3mm LEDs can be inserted into the rear M3 threads, and additional two 5mm LEDs can be inserted into the top.
Reservoir, pumps and converter card: A powerful combination!
At the rear of the reservoir the converter card can be mounted with M3x6mm screws (Item No.: 29031). Different modes of operation make this reservoir e.g. ideal for server applications: In redundant mode, the second pump takes over should the first one fail. For performance-oriented users it is even possible to over-clock the pumps – Some tested Eheim pumps showed a 50% increase in performance compared to standard operation! Two pumps would hence allow an astounding flow rate of 3000l/h – Incredible!
