AquaC Urchin-S In-Sump Protein Skimmer w/ Drain Fitting (No Pump) Information




AquaC Urchin-S Hang-On Protein Skimmer without Pump

NEW FOR 2012! The Urchin-S features a redesigned High-Flow Spray Injector that increases air and water flow. The new injector also produces smaller air bubbles that boosts performance higher than ever before. The newly redesigned skimmer includes a taller collection cup, doubling the capacity, with a larger foam tower to handle the extra foam production. A neoprene noise muffler, specially designed to fit around the injector, is included to reduce noise.

Factory testing at Aqua C suggests a 30% increase in skimming performance!

The revolutionary AquaC protein skimmers do not use venturis, downdraft tubes, or air pumps; they employ the patented "Spray Injection System." This innovation allows the protein skimmer to efficiently draw in much more air than any other of the top protein skimmers. This coupled with the superiorly designed compact reaction chamber yields results that will literally blow the waste out of your water.

Unlike previous forms of skimming, the patented Aqua C spray injection method enables huge amounts of air and water to be processed with a relatively small pump. Although it is a simple process, there is still some confusion as to how the spray injector works.

Most other forms of protein skimming rely on special valves or media to generate the air flow, and these parts quickly become clogged with salt, dust, or even mineral deposits. The AquaC spray injector is a relatively large nozzle that resists clogging.

"For its compact size and simple design, The AquaC protein skimmer is able to process a large volume of water and efficiently remove organic pollutants. I`m very happy with it!"
Fernando Nosratpour, Senior Aquarist
Birch Aquarium at Scripps

Great Skimmer!

Comments: A great protein skimmer. I have only had it running for 2 weeks, but I've emptied the collection cup out 3 times already. Simple Design, easy to use, and works well. I added a piece of foam at the output to cut down on bubbles entering the sump, but it really doesn't need it. I bought the unit without pump, and plumbed it off my main external pump (little giant) for the tank. It does not require much water flow, and seems to work best with less flow (too much flow, and the bubbles start entering the sump). I've owned many skimmers, and this is the best one yet. It's on a 50 gallon tank.
