AquaC Urchin-S In-Sump Protein Skimmer w/ Drain Fitting & Cobalt Aquatics MJ1200 Powerhead/Pump Information




AquaC Urchin-S In-Sump Protein Skimmer Information

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

Comments: I had an AquaC Remora running on a 58 gallon tank. Put this in when I opted for a sump. Like the Remora, the Urchin-S is ridiculously easy to set up and fine tune after a normal break-in period. Generates lots of dry dirty foam. No issues at all and AquaC's customer service is second to none. For smaller tanks, I don't think you'll find anything that works this well and is this hassle-free. Hook it up and forget it.
