This is a premium, high performance protein skimmer from Tropical Marine Centre. The sump based Reef-Skim 500DC is suitable for marine aquariums with a capacity of up to 500 litres. It has a very user friendly design to provide ease of cleaning and maintenance. Due to the integral pump, the Reef-Skim 500DC is simple to install in the majority of sumps.
TMC Reef-Skim protein skimmers feature an innovative conical shape. This ensures optimal water to air contact time and encourages the concentration of bubbles towards the collection point. Effective skimming is guaranteed! The patented bubble diffusion plate gives you even dispersal of air bubbles across the column.
The TMC Reef-Skim 500DC incorporates a unique needle wheel injection system which provides the ideal mix of water and air bubbles for protein skimming. There is a soft start function to reduce wear and the variable speed pump enables the precise adjustment of waterflow. There is an air intake silencer and beneath this connectivity for an ozoniser.
The highly useful feed setting means that you can turn off the pump whilst you are feeding your stock. The skimmer will then return to operation after a pre-set period of time and will conveniently return to its previous setting automatically.
This skimmer is precision engineered and fashioned from the finest materials.
