Fluval UVC In-line Clarifier

What Abyss Thinks

Here at the Abyss we have always been big fans of UV and now with this new, Fluval UVC sterilizer, we now have a product that can fill the gap where other sterilizers would not  fit . The clarifier features a compact design and is therefore quite easy to install. This Fluval clarifier type might be new, but it is the same thing that has been achieved in a slightly different way. Fluorescent lamps and cold cathode fluorescent lamps have very similar designs, but they use different types of electron discharge. Fluorescent lamps discharge electrons through an emitter by heating electrodes. While CCFLs discharge electrons without heating. This is due to the way each lamp’s electrode is made and is the greatest change between the two designs. The Fluval UVC In-line Clarifier does have some really good reviews that are also worth a look.
