THE TRIDENT IS AN AUTOMATED TESTING SYSTEM THAT REGULARLY TESTS ALKALINITY, CALCIUM, AND MAGNESIUM IN YOUR SALTWATER AQUARIUM — AND THEN COMMUNICATES THIS INFORMATION TO YOUR APEX SO YOU CAN GET ALERTS, AND CHANGE YOUR DOSING. WHEN COMBINED WITH THE DOS (AVAILABLE SEPARATELY) IT CREATES A FULLY AUTOMATED SYSTEM FOR THE PROPER DOSING OF SUPPLEMENTS, MAINTAINING THEM AT CONSISTENT LEVELS.
FINALLY, TOSS ALL THOSE TEST KITS!
Syringes, vials, colors, endpoints, expiration dates — now a thing of the past for Alkalinity, Calcium, and Magnesium. Now, with zero effort, you get up to date values for Alkalinity, Calcium, and Magnesium — anywhere in the world!
HOW IT WORKS
The Trident is a self contained automatic titration colorimeter. That’s quite a mouthful, for sure, so let’s state it as simply as we can. The Trident is basically automating what you (and top scientists) do already when you test your water, that is, perform a color changing titration and interpret the results.
On a scheduled basis the Trident carefully mixes its reagents with a small amount of sample water from your aquarium. While doing this, it is measuring (titrating with a precision peristaltic pump) the amounts of each that are necessary to reach an expected color change (determined by the electronic colorimeter). When it finishes the titration, it sends this sample/reagent fluid to your waste container. It then interprets the results of that test and logs the value into your Apex.
EASY PLUG AND PLAY SET UP
From the box to testing in under 15 minutes! Unlike other testing systems, there are no reagents to mix, tubes to cut, or pumps or probes to calibrate. Simply plug in one cable, two tubes, and run the setup task on the Apex Fusion mobile app — it holds your hand through the installation with helpful videos along the way.
CONSISTENCY AND PRECISION, TEST AFTER TEST
The Trident tests with a precision of +/- 0.05 dKh for Alkalinity and 15ppm for Calcium and Magnesium. This is better than humans can do consistently with every hobby-grade test kit on the market.
