Maxspect (HongKong) Ltd. (Maxspect), a science technology company focused on development of innovative products for the aquatic industry, today announced that the European Patent Office has granted and activated European Patent EP 3 128 177 B1 covering cross-flow wave making technology, and methods for producing cross-flow full water circulation within an aquarium (Gyre Flow).
This proprietary technology is applicable to the generation of Gyre Flow in virtually any aquariums, from small household aquariums that are 20 gallons or less to large scale main display tanks in public aquariums with over 10,000 gallons of water. Maxspect has exclusive rights to the patented technology and has several licensees of such technology in development.
“This patent is an important component of Maxspect's formidable intellectual property portfolio covering water circulation, LED lighting and filtration related technologies for the aquatic industry.”
Gyre Flow generated within a marine aquarium creates a natural water flow pattern, mimicking the waves in the ocean, enhances the water circulation within an aquarium, improves the efficiency of nutrient export, which in turns improves the growth rate and healthiness of sea dwelling animals such as corals and marine fishes.
Gyre Flow can also be used to create a freshwater ecosystem such as the Amazon River system where water is constantly flow from upstream to downstream, creating the ideal habitat for many species of tropical freshwater fishes.
Distinct from traditional propeller technology, cross-flow pumps powered by Gyre Flow technology generally requires the use of only one pump to create a full water circulation within an aquarium, whereas propeller powered pumps would require multiple units in order to achieve the same results, thus it is more energy efficient to circulate water within an aquarium using Gyre Flow technology.
“This patent is an important component of Maxspect’s formidable intellectual property portfolio covering water circulation, LED lighting and filtration related technologies for the aquatic industry.” said Vico W. Liang, Chairman and Technical Director of Maxspect.
