I don't want some ridiculous 8 foot tall reactor for three or four tablespoons of GFO or a quarter cup of carbon.

Y'all should make some small ones, like 6 or 7 inches tall and maybe 3-4 inches around.

I agree. Some small reactors that could be powered by a MJ that would fit in cambers 1 or 3 of a BC29 would br great. Making changing the media simple would be key.

now that stevie is branching out of the AIO hell niche, perhaps something like this will be on the radar. although the roundness might throw him... ;)

pretty sure jer was referring to the length

the hell it's not too big. The BRS reactor is only like 2 inches smaller than a regular reactor.

The BRS reactor is also fugly.

:lol:

And not this. Definitely not this. You AIO suckers can use media bags and wait in line.

I will put the thinking and research cap on when it comes time. Have to bust out a few other projects first.

Nope, not yet. Still too busy with the other crap we make. There are not smaller reactors on the market already?

I'm a hype machine, stevie. I expect to receive some pre-production versions free of charge.

This takes risk and I need more help along the way from a teacher, firefighter or road to make it happen.

Sounds like you better sign up for some mechanical engineering and materials science classes at your local public university that receives government funding. They have plenty of teachers there who can prepare you to take such a risk. And you can even use roads to drive there every day, under the protection of firefighters to ease your fear of sudden combustion.

I have made one that is 2" across and about 5" or 6" tall without the built in pump. I cut some sponge material for the top and bottom. Turns out it's a bit too dense to properly tumble GFO. Once I get the sponge issue worked out, I expect inTank to pay me $100,000 for rights to my prototype.

Leaving now. See you #####es on the flip side.
