      Description: The Kent Marine Nautilus TE protein skimmer has some unique features that contribute to its’ remarkable operating efficiency. The Turbo•Eductor fitting mounted on the pump intake mixes air with the incoming water; this air is obliterated into millions of miniscule bubbles, and the water/air mix is pumped into the skimmer. Although the water and air inflow to the skimmer changes directions within the unit, flow is essentially laminar thanks to attention to details that eliminate turbulent areas; the result is that the bubbles don’t have a chance to congregate and become larger (larger bubbles decrease skimming efficiency). The water/air mix is injected into the reaction chamber tangentially. In essence this means that the angle at which the mix enters the chamber causes cyclonic rotation, which maximizes reaction time and greatly aids the efficiency and effectiveness of the unit. The reaction chamber in itself is a great feature of the Nautilus TE, with an overall volume of approximately 295 cubic inches! Compare this with the reaction volume of many skimmers considered to be in the same class and you’ll quickly see that the Nautilus truly is in a league of its’ own! The water/air mix spiral up through the reaction chamber, appearing as a milky-white fog of bubbles, culminating at the collar atop the chamber. From there, they are pushed upwards through the foam rise tower, all the while becoming drier as the proteinaceous compounds adhering to the bubbles rise further from the turbulent froth below.

      Because the exhaust of the skimmer is protected by a baffle, few (if any) bubbles escape from the reaction chamber, meaning no bubbles make it back into the sump or main aquarium as a result. The actual exhaust assembly is height-adjustable, allowing the hobbyist to tweak the height of water in the reaction chamber and produce the darkest, driest, dirtiest foam possible depending on conditions within the sump; this equates to much greater efficiency and less water being wasted as skimmate (the material that empties into the foam collection cup). The overall performance of the Nautilus is easily on par with many more expensive skimmers on the market today.
