Salinity Probe Stability Kit (SPS) w/ Sicce Micra Pump 90 gph - VCA
This kit was created to be used in conjunction with Neptune Systems salinity/conductivity probe. It allows the probe to stay clean and fixes a well know issue with the salinity probe. Microbubbles no more.
- Salinity Probe Stability Assembly
- 36in of 1/4in supply-line hose
- SICCE Micra compatible Pump adapter for 1/4in RO Line.
- SICCE Micra Pump 90 gph 1.9 ft Head
Important Installation notes
- Must be supplied constant 60 to 100 GPH of flow.
- Ideally, the supply line is fed by a small pump or manifold port after in-sump filtration.
- Probe with SPS Kit can be installed in any area of your sump, overflow or drain chamber.
Monitoring Salinity in an Aquarium can be a Challenge
Get Reliable and Consistent Readings with the SPS Kit
One of the biggest challenges with conductivity probes is getting a consistent reading. Many times, the reading is fouled by small bubbles or debris getting on to the probes and end.
The SPS – Salinity Probe Stability Kit Solves the Problem.
Easy to Use
Simply slip the SPS kit over the end of your probe, connect the 1/4in supply line to a small pump such as a Neptune Pmup, or SICCE 90 GPH Micra, or even an open port on your manifold. For the best results, supply the SPS kit between 60 to 100 GPH of consistent and constant flow.
Designed to produce constant readings
The SPS Kit is carefully designed to create just the right about of water movement and constant pressure around the probe to provide a solid and reliable reading. It will also shielding the probe from bubbles and other debris. If a bubble does get in, the SPS kit’s constant flow over the probe will act to flush it out and help the reading recover quickly.
- While supporting the internal spacer screen, Slip the end of the probe through the top of the SPS kit. Gently push the probe in, until it stops.
- Connect the 1/4in supply line to the push fitting
- Connect the end of the supply line to a Neptune System Pmup, SICCE Micra, or another suitable pump. You may also connect the supply line direly to an open manifold port. Please note, with high-flow supplies, you may need to regulate the flow using a ball valve. You aiming for 60 to 100 GPH.
- Place the Probe and SPS kit into the water and turn on the flow
- With the supply flow on, cover the end opening at the bottom of the SPS kit with you finger for a few seconds, to expel any air or bubble that may be trapped. You may also gently shake the assembly yup and down. Both of these actions will greatly shorten the initial settle in period.
- The settle in period will generally last a few minutes to as much as an hour. Once settled in, your reading will level out and you should see a trend line that deviates no more than a 0.2 to 0.1 up or down.
