Tornado II Protein Skimmer 2
Tornado II Protein Skimmer
The Tornado II Protein Skimmer is the New improved version of the popular Tornado protein skimmer. No more pressure loss on the inlet due to the absence of a venturi. Water goes straight into the filter. Air is blown into the 4mm air inlet through a supplied flowmeter to ensure a continuous flow of 0,5 l/m (30 l/h). This pressure ensures the separation of the produced foam through the foam outlet pipe. The Tornado II Protein Skimmer is a combination of three different filter systems. The Tornado II Protein Skimmer filter operates biological, mechanical and chemical. The Tornado II Protein Skimmer principle operates as follows: The surface of an air bubble attracts dissolved substances out of the water. Because of the adhesion of the bubbles these substances, like chemicals, waste particles, colourants and algae, are concentrated. By means of an air pump, air is mixed with water. By forcing this mixture through the bio rings to a lower part, there is a long contact between air and water. This changes the surface tension of the water continuously and creates a thick foam. This foam will be separated from the cleared water by a perforated cone and exits through the foam outlet. Dissolved substances like; phosphates, ammonia, humus acids, colourants, proteins and a number of heavy metals, are filtered out of the water and separated together with the foam. The extraction of dissolved substances is not possible with normal filters and can only be done if chemicals are added. The Tornado II Protein Skimmer filter has various advantages: Stabilizes pH Removes colourants Increases dissolved oxygen Not dependant on bacteria, works as soon as the pump is running. Total height 74cm, Ø16cm. Water inlet Ø25mm water outlet Ø40 mm, foam outlet Ø25mm. Pump capacity max. 5m³/h

Sander Fresh Skim
Sander Fresh Skim
Sander Fresh Skim Sander fresh water protein skimmers Fresh-Skim have been developed especially for the treatment of pond water and are ideal for the Koi enthusiast. Fresh-Skim provides you with crystal clear water, and protein compounds and turbidity are removed before they become harmful for the system. Fresh-Skim, like all Sander skimmers, is ready for the operation with ozone and will serve perfectly as an ozone reactor. In fresh water, the use of ozone enhances and increases the efficiency of the skimming process. It offers valuable advantages like disinfection, oxidization of nitrites and yellow substance, and, at the same time, oxygen enrichment of the water.   For more information please Copy and paste the link below: https://www.aqua-sander.de/en/products/protein-skimmers/freshwater-skimmers-model-fresh-skim.html

Filtreco Protein Skimmer
Filtreco Protein Skimmer
A Filtreco Protein Skimmer will remove organic waste (including food waste, dead leaves, etc.) that gets in the pond, consists of large amino acid chains, also called protein. Filtreco protein skimmer separate's these proteins from the pond water. The dirt in the pond from bacteria and enzymes break down into small particles, so small that the protein eventually dissolves into the water. A mechanical filter can not remove these particles. A protein skimmer removes them before they are broken down further into more harmful substances (ammonium, nitrite, nitrate, phosphate etc.). Proteins assemble at the interface between air and water. Kinshi increase protein skimmer this interface so much that many proteins assemble. The water is mixed with air through a venturi system. Then the water / air mixture is spread over a bio wheels. This increases the surface area, causing the protein to form a solid foam. The foam is finally stripped from the pond water and dispersed from a 40mm outlet. It will remove proteins and other substances such as dyes.
