Protein skimmer for aquariums from 200 to 1000 liters to install on the filter. It has been specifically designed for use in aquariums and tested by professionals. This unit will efficiently remove organic substances from your aquarium water.
The venturi pump skimmer must be located inside a filtration tank. The water is sent to the skimmer through the venturi pump. The pump draws water from the filtration tank and mixes it with air. Inside the pump body the bubbles are broken up by Aqua Medic's Power Wheel rotor until they are very small. The air/water mixture is pumped into the skimmer. The treated water flows through the outlet pipe out of the skimmer to the filtration tank.
The DC Runner series of magnetically coupled centrifugal pumps are very quiet in operation. They have fully encapsulated synchronous motors. All its materials are resistant to salt water.
The polished ceramic shaft and bearings are wear resistant, ensuring long operating life. The pumps are easily removable for cleaning. The direction of rotation is electronically controlled. This ensures a very efficient operation.
Suction Side: The included air injection nozzle is on the suction side of the pump.
Pressure side: The pressure side will be connected with the skimmer through the prepared connection by a piece of rubber. Please make sure that the gaskets (Fig. 1, No. 18 + 24) are placed inside the groove. If possible, mount the pump horizontally for better air intake and quieter operation.
The DC Runner pump works through an electronic safety transformer at 110 – 240 V / 50 – 60 Hz and a 24 V DC output. To open the pump, remove the retaining plate and loosen the pump lock by turning it. After placing the pump make sure that you can always reach the plug easily.
Adjustable 24 V DC Runner pump incl. controller with button to stop the skimmer to allow feeding. 0 - 10 V connection enabled.
