Deltec protein skimmer 1500i
The Deltec Skimmer 1500i 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 1500i 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 1500i is equipped with the Deltec pump DCC 3. This 24 V DC pump can be operated via an eight-stage controller and can be optimally adjusted to the water level and water load. On the (for most aquariums) optimum level 6, with only 22 watts, approximately 1,000 liters of air is generated.
The ergonomic cylinder shape
Thanks to the ergonomic cylindrical shape, the Deltec Skimmer 1500i 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.
As an option, a cleaning system is available for the Deltec Skimmer 1500i, whereby the inner standpipe is cleaned by turning deposits through the foam cover. If these deposits are not removed at regular intervals, the skimming performance will decrease drastically, as foam bubbles will form on this layer
Hollow room bottom
An additional innovation of the Deltec Skimmer 1500i is the hollow room floor. This helps to muffle the sound even more, so that the already silent Deltec Skimmer 1500i is called "whisper quiet". Moreover, the water flows back through the hollow chamber floor. The water is drained from the skimmer at the lowest possible point, so that 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 1500i 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 1500i have been 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.
