Red Sea

The Berlin Air-Lift is a high performance, low cost internal skimmer based on the Berlin Triple-Pass principle. The Air-Lift is powered by a lime wood air-stone attached to an external air pump (not supplied), these compact units are easy to install and maintain.

The triple-pass is combined with a powerful Venturi air injector, greatly enhancing the efficiency of the skimmer. Air bubbles and protein rich water are concentrated in the narrow inner tube, ensuring good mixing and maximum surface contact. The air/water mixture swirls up the inner tube into the wider reaction chamber, causing a relaxation of the turbulent water and separation of the protein rich foam at the water surface, which rises into the collection cup. The air bubbles move down the chamber by the force of the water current until reaching the air return skirt located at its base. The skirt effectively enlarges the diameter of the chamber, eliminating the downward force on the air bubbles. The bubbles then rise up through the chamber against the downward flow of the water (counter current), causing great turbulence and increased contact time. The Venturi air injector produces a consistent quantity of fine air bubbles, ensuring a large surface area for collection of waste materials.

“WORKS GREAT AFTER BREAK-IN...”
3.0

This cheap skimmer works great, but after a lot of tweaking, which took about a week for me. I used a whisper 40 air pump and eventually stopped using the air valve adjuster since it required daily tweaking to properly skim. Although, after the break-in and tossing aside the valve, it pulls out a ...Read More

“Biggest Bang for the Buck!”
5.0

I have 2 of the 90s in my 75 gallon tank. Once you figure how to maintain them, you will realize that they are the biggest bang for your buck. You can often find them for $20.00 at stores that are discontinuing them. The only place I can find the limewood that will fit, is here

“Nice!”
4.0

The Red Sea Berlin Airlift is great! Although it is to small for my 55 gallon tank! I'm sure it would work great in a smaller tank. Very easy to set up. Only thing I suggest is having a pump with some kind of adjuster to regulate the air pressure coming out of your pump. Other than that it has worke...Read More

“Red Sea Berlin Airlift Interna”
4.0

I was looking to change out an older and louder injection skimmer and thought I would give this a try. This is a great skimmer when used with a good air pump. I have been using this skimmer on my 55 gallon tank and it pulls gunk from my tank daily. I would recommend this skimmer.

“good/cheap skimmer”
4.0

although I am new to saltwater this skimmer seems to work very well especially for the price. I have mine placed in my sump and it pulls alot of skimate. set it and forget it no hassles in readjusting after break in. make sure to get a powerful/adjustable air pump though.
