170-EXT / Advanced Control Recirculating Protein Skimmer
The new and innovative Reef Octopus Regal 170-EXT
recirculating protein skimmer supplies powerful filtration for aquariums
up to 300 gallons where absolute control is a necessary. The Reef Octopus Regal 170-EXT
is constructed of high-quality cast acrylic that disassembles
completely for cleaning. Its hybrid conical body naturally stabilizes
and concentrates the organic rich foam as it rises.
This Regal skimmer is quipped with a new generation Reef Octopus controllable Direct Current DC-3500S
pinwheel recirculating skimmer pump which are the latest in variable
speed flow technology and allows for refined control, enhanced
performance and efficiency. The vast majority of skimmer pumps available to hobbyist are alternating current "AC" pumps (the type of power that comes out of your wall outlet). Direct current pumps have several key advantages over traditional AC pumps.
Most notably, you can control the rotational speed of the motor, thus
electronically control air and water flow rates into the skimmer. Now
the user can have the skimmer process more or less water just by the
push of a button!!!
This controller allows users to select between five preset speeds
indicated by five lit LEDs. The controller also features a feed/service
and an On/Off button. When the feed button is pressed, the skimmer pump shuts
down and will automatically reactivate after 10 minutes. Press the
feed button a second time to resume normal operation. RO DC pumps
feature a true slow startup where the pump slowly ramps up from zero
RPM to the full preset speed over a period of approximately 10 seconds.
The pump and controller
are connected via a waterproof 3-conductor union. The detachable
controller will allow for a simple waterproof union. The volute can
rotate to change the pump's output orientation in 90 degree intervals, meaning users can output water vertically (up or down) as well as horizontally.
