Deltec has been a market leader in high-quality marine equipment for over 25 years. Their new series of protein skimmers continue their long history of German hand-built, high-efficiency protein skimmers. They have used their experience to introduce many innovations in skimmer technology over the years, pushing the boundaries of performance and efficiency. Each protein skimmer offers a sleek compact design and incorporates numerous features.
Hollow footplate design
The footplate design offers a new methodology to water flow within the skimmer, giving better contact time between the air/water mixture without increasing the overall height of the skimmer. This also reduces the chance of micro bubbles escaping into the aquarium and reduces turbulence and noise within the skimmer body.
Emergency overflow system with water level indicator
The innovative safety overflow feature introduced by Deltec automatically shuts off the air input if the water level inside the skimmer rises, preventing the skimmer cup from flooding.
Every skimmer is fitted with an air silencer to reduce the noise produced by air being drawn into the protein skimmer and along with the high-performance pump these skimmers operate with very minimal noise.
Includes manual cleaning head (CSM)
The Manual cleaning head (CSM) allows you to quickly and easily clean the skimmer neck for optimal performance with the turn of your wrist.
Due to waste accumulation and calcium carbonate build up protein skimmer pumps generally have to perform in a harsh environment and need to be cleaned periodically to maintain peak performance. With this in mind, Deltec has incorporated a quick tool-less removal system for the pump allowing for easy disassembly, in tests Deltec has been able to remove a pump for cleaning in less than 20 seconds meaning less time spent maintaining equipment and more time to enjoy your aquarium.
