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 delivery pump stops and the water level in the sump rises. In addition, there may be problems with the air supply, for example due to a kink in the silicone hose. This allows the skimmer to "boil over" and the water rises so high that it is pressed into the foam bowl 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 controller pipe
The water level in the Deltec Skimmer 1000ix can be read on the emergency overflow course. In addition, the minimum and maximum markings help to optimize the water level. Due to the possibility of exchanging the emergency overflow with the controller tube, the user has the possibility to decide how the pipes 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, this generates an air supply of 600 liters.
The ergonomic cylinder shape
Thanks to the ergonomic cylindrical shape, the Deltec Skimmer 1000ix achieves the best results with
skimming. The shape of the skimmer does not rise. This allows the small air bubbles to rise without hindrance, they are completely saturated and they only burst in the riser of the foam pot. From there, the skimming waste can be discharged via a drain hose without having to lower the foam bowl.
Hollow room bottom
An additional innovation of the Deltec Skimmer 1000ix is the hollow chamber floor. This helps to dampen the sound even more, calling the already silent Deltec Skimmer 1000ix whisper quiet ". In addition, the water flows back through the hollow chamber floor. The water is discharged from the skimmer at the lowest possible point, leaving almost no air bubbles. can flow into the aquarium.
Disassembly, dimensions and construction
The normal cleaning of the pump is very easy thanks to the simple and quick removal of the skimmer. Deltec Skimmer 1000ix can be assembled 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 are chosen so that they can be placed comfortably in a sump. Due to the large volume of the cylindrical shape, a small base area is sufficient.
