Spring Reverb tank for effects loop

As my Orange TH30 has no built in reverb, and Im using my Marshall avt50 enclosure as a speaker cab, I was thinking i could use the AVT's built in spring reverb tank within my fx loop.

The spring tank has 2 phono jacks (in and out presumably ), if plugged these into my effects loop would this work? Or would i need to get a few more components to ensure that signals are at the appropriate levels.

Any suggestion or ideas on how I could do this?

Will probably not work, as the output is basically the same level as a guitar pickup, so requires a makeup gain amplifier. Radial makes a spring reverb driver to bring a tank up to line levels, but it is a 500 series rack unit. Not sure if there is a standalone spring reverb driver available. If you have a clean boost pedal that can provide +20dB of gain, try going into that and then back into the FX return. May be enough makeup gain.
