The Deltec Skimmer 1000ix has a newly developed emergency overflow. This prevents the skimmer from “boiling over” when the water level in the skimmer rises. This can happen, for example, because the feed pump stops and the water level in the sump rises. In addition, there may be problems with the air supply, e.g. due to a kink in the silicone hose. This allows the skimmer to “boil over” and the water rises so high that it is forced into the foam pot and the foam waste is flushed back into the sump. This leads to an extreme load on water. This is prevented by the emergency overflow.
Emergency overflow pipe and regulator pipe
The water level in the Deltec Skimmer 1000ix can be read from the emergency overflow line. In addition, the minimum and maximum markings help to optimize the water level. The ability to swap the emergency overflow line with the regulator tube allows the user to decide how the lines are arranged.
The Deltec Skimmer 1000ix is equipped with the low-consumption and high performance Deltec pump DCS 600. With a power consumption of only 11 Watt, it generates an air supply of 600 liters.
The ergonomic cylinder shape
Thanks to the ergonomic cylinder shape, the Deltec Skimmer 1000ix achieves the best results with
skimming. The shape of the skimmer does not run upwards. This allows the small air bubbles to rise unimpeded, they are completely saturated and only burst into the riser of the foam pot. From there, the skimming waste can be disposed of via a drain hose without having to lower the foam pot.
Hollow chamber floor
An additional innovation of the Deltec Skimmer 1000ix is the hollow chamber floor. This helps to dampen the sound even more, making the already quiet Deltec Skimmer 1000ix whisper quiet. In addition, the water flows back through the hollow chamber bottom. The water is discharged from the skimmer at the lowest possible point, resulting in almost no bubbles flow into the aquarium.
Disassembly, dimensions and construction
The normal cleaning of the pump is very easy thanks to the simple and quick disassembly of the skimmer. Deltec Skimmer 1000ix can be mounted and disassembled without tools. Tests have shown that the pump can be removed from the skimmer in less than 20 seconds. The dimensions of the Deltec Skimmer 1000ix have been chosen so that they can be comfortably placed in a sump. Due to the large volume of the cylinder shape, a small base area is sufficient.
