      Description: In 1963, TUNZE developed the first standard protein skimmer for salt water with its own air generation system.

      Function: In this rotating jet skimmer, the strong water jet of the pressure pump generates a constant, fine-pearly air bubble mixture, which escapes to the top through a discharge system with a length of 1.20 m into an easy-to-clean foaming cup. By this means the water in the contact pipe itself becomes “poor” in protein particles. The inflow from the aquarium then takes place more or less automatically due to the so-called molecular compensating pressures = diffusion.

      A further TUNZE invention is the principle of contact skimming which prevents living plankton from being drawn into the pump circulation. Eighty percent or more of the organic substances, such as protein and cellulose, are removed from saltwater aquariums by these modern automatic skimmers.

      Delivery condition: Ready for mounting with holding device for vertical and horizontal glass wall.

      Pros: compact
      Cons: Expensive, difficult to clean, many malfunctions, difficult to mount

      Tolerances in manufacture are too fine which causes malfunctions. This skimmer is very difficult to clean. Parts are very difficult to come by. The mounting procedure for the skimmer is impossible, I had to improvise and make special adaptors to get the skimmer mounted. The depth of the skimmer in the tank is critical and even if slightly low, due to evaporation the skimmer stops functioning. the worst feature is it is very, very expensive
