Red Sea Prizm Hang-on Protein Skimmer

RS1131

This item has been discontinued.

Red Sea The development of the Prizm line of protein skimmers represents one of the most significant technological breakthroughs in protein extraction in decades. Utilizing an advanced new method of mixing the water and air and the development of an integrated 2-stage reaction chamber has reset the standard by which all skimmers will be judged.

The Prizm Skimmers consist of 4 basic components: Main Body, Collection Cup, Inlet Pipe and Pump. It is designed to either hang-on the aquarium or to be installed next to or inside a sump as the motor is fully submersible. The Prizm Pro combines an efficient 18-blade TurboJet injector together with Red Sea`s Patented convergent-divergent flow technology Reaction Chamber. Water and air are drawn into the skimmer through the Inlet Pipe by the 18 blade TurboJet impellor, which has been designed to generate the optimum ratio between the water/air flow rates, producing a constant stream of superfine air bubbles in a homogenous air/water mixture.

The unique reaction chamber is divided into 2 compartments consisting of a convergent upward flow first stage, followed by a divergent downward flow second stage. The decreasing cross-sectional area of the convergent first stage, causes great turbulence and extended contact time between the air bubbles and water. The increasing cross-sectional area of the divergent second stage causes the air bubbles to flow both co and counter current before arriving to the water surface. The combined action of the 2 compartments creates a protein loaded, stable foam at the throat of the skimmer, positively pushing dry foam up into the collection cup.

The bubble-trap under the reaction chamber redirects any escaping air bubbles ensuring that bubble free water is returned to the aquarium via the cascade. In addition, the bubble-trap acts as a Mechanical filter by trapping small particulate matter not removed by the foam, thus keeping it out of the aquarium.

Helped Solve a major problem

REVIEW
I was experiencing a nasty brown algae problem in my relatively new 20g nano. Despite several water changes, water from my LFS, Pacific water from petco, my own RO/DI water, nothing helped. I have always used HOB filters in 30+ years of FW and a few of SW. It is what I know, so this skimmer was a...Read More

Works Great!

REVIEW
I've had several skimmers in the past and most of them developed leaks or produced alot of fine bubbles that went back into the tank. This is actually my replacement skimmer for my Red Sea skimmer I purchased in 2007. I broke the tabs on the uptake tube that attached to the pump from pushing on it t...Read More

Phosphates have constantly been .025ppm since setting up the tank and have decreased to .01ppm. I also have restricted the air tube so I have no had a problem with having t...Read More

Bang 4 Buck

REVIEW
I ordered 2 skimmers and they arrived quickly and without damage. Assembly was easy but priming it was tricky. After getting them running, within 24 hrs, both collection cups had thick, dark, stinky mate in them. For the Deal of The Day, these things are AWESOME! Priming trick, just hook the tube up...Read More
