REEF-Skim 1000 DC Skimmer

  • In stock

The excellent TMC Reef-Skim 1000DC is a high performance, sump-mounted protein skimmer for use with marine aquariums. This skimmer is suitable for aquariums with a capacity of up to 1000 litres and has a user friendly design which makes maintenance and cleaning simple. The integral pump facilitates easy installation in most sumps.

The Reef-Skim 1000 DC offers a feed timer and soft start function which reduces wear. The low voltage variable speed pump offers precise adjustment of waterflow whilst the advanced conical shape ensures optimum water to air contact time. The innovative shape also encourages the concentration of bubbles upwards towards the collection point for the most efficient skimming. The patented bubble diffusion plate system gives uniform dispersal of air bubbles across the column.

The TMC Reef-Skim 1000 DC features a unique needle wheel injection system which guarantees the ideal mix of air bubbles and water for protein skimming. The air intake silencer is designed to enable the precise adjustment of air flow and simplicity of connection to an ozoniser.

The handy feed setting enables you to turn off the pump whilst you feed your stock. The unit will then return to operation after a pre-set period of time and will return to its previous setting automatically.

This skimmer is precision engineered and fashioned from the finest materials.
