Tunze Turbelle stream 3 ... it just gets better!

World novelty | The first magnetic-bearing Turbelle®


The new Turbelle® stream 3 precisely addresses the wishes of today's aquaristics industry. It is also compact, powerful, versatile, and moreover 
absolutely quiet thanks to its special magnetic-bearing pump drive. The stream 3 is energy efficient and has a warranty period of 5 years!

In 2002 TUNZE® presented a propeller-equipped circulation pump, and through this coined the name for a type of pump: The Turbelle® stream. Since then, TUNZE® has accomplished major developments in this area. The Turbelle® stream 3 is a completely new kind of circulation pump for small and large aquariums. With its innovative design, it can integrate almost invisibly into every aquarium. Thanks to the new magnetic-bearing pump drive, its superior feature lies in the completely silent operation - even at higher power levels. With a consumption of just 3.5 to 50 W, its performance can be set between 2,500 (660 USgal./h) to 15,000 l/h (3,962 USgal./h). It is delivered with the Turbelle® controller and a 5 m cable to the pump. The silence Magnet Holder ensures a fixation on every point of the aquarium glass pane up to a glass thickness of 15mm (2/3"). The new 0.8 Hz FishCare function prevents injuries to fish or other living animals. The glass thickness can be expanded up to 19 mm (3/4 in.) for larger aquariums (accessory).

The illustration is similar, deviations therefrom are possible.






Adjustable and removable flow deflector, in order to 
precisely adapt the flow to the aquarium. Through this, the stream 3 can also be arranged vertically and discreetly in a corner deeper in the aquarium.


Highly resistant polyurethane cable (5 m; 197 in.).


The acoustically optimized low-frequency propeller provides the best possible hydraulic performance.


The large intake strainer with massive locking hooks (snap fits), is easy to 
remove, and can be fitted with a protective grating for small animals, 
anemones, etc.


Hybrid support comprised of a suction cup and magnet.


Vibration decoupling through silicone buffers.


Microprocessor-controlled motor with an intelligent operating condition monitoring and highly efficient power electronics.


Operating time counter with LED-interface.


Wear-free magnetic bearing for a contact-free radial support which neutralizes motor noises.


The bearing is made of technical ceramics and high-performance plastic.


Durable outer housing in a high-gloss finish.


Intake opening for an optimal rotor cooling.
