Deltec protein skimmer 400i with controller
Deltec 400i DC protein skimmer
The new innovative internal protein skimmer from Deltec.
The Deltec ‘i’ DC pump with protein skimmers has a new emergency overflow system that prevents the canister from overflowing in the event that the water level of the sump suddenly exceeds the specified water depth or the air intake becomes clogged. As the water level rises in the body of the protein skimmer, the air supply to the pump is automatically shut off via the emergency overflow, reducing the likelihood of the cup overflowing should the water level in the sump ever rise due to a return pump failure.
The new protien skimmers also include minimum and maximum level specifications on the exhaust lines for easy installation.
The ‘double bottom’ footplate design allows water to enter the protein skimmer body into a cavity within the footplate and into the integrated level monitoring tube and emergency overflow tube. This new design feature ensures that water leaves the protein skimmer body at the lowest point, greatly reducing the chance of micro bubbles escaping from the body, increasing the contact time of air and water and also reducing the noise and turbulence within the protein skimmer body .
Due to debris build-up and calcium carbonate build-up, protein skimmer pumps generally need to perform in a harsh environment and require regular cleaning to maintain peak performance. With this in mind, Deltec incorporated a quick tool-less pump removal system that allows for easy disassembly, in tests that Deltec was able to remove a pump for cleaning in less than 20 seconds, meaning less time to clean. equipment maintenance is spent and more time enjoying your aquarium.
