Tunze Protein Skimmers
The TUNZE Protein Skimmer Hydrofoamer produces a large quantity of a mixture of 50 per cent of water and 50 per cent of fine air bubbles. Each air bubble has an active surface which binds the electrically charged DOCs (Dissolved Organic Carbons). The air water mixture is immediately transported into the middle reactor area, producing a dense foamy mass. The upper zone of the reactor is used to settle this foamy mass laden with protein, which is then removed into a special foam cup or into the foam extraction pipe. The purified water returns into the aquarium without bubbles or into the filter. By means of a special nipple, ozone can be introduced into the system, thus improving the skimming process and at the same time removing any yellowing matter in the aquarium water.
