Vertex IN 80 Internal (In Sump) Skimmer w/ 2nd Generation Impeller

Among the many progresses in Marine Aquaria hobby in the recent years, the use of protein skimmers was, by far, one of the greatest milestones in maintaining salt water aquarium animals. Organic compounds, being bipolar in nature, provide an opportunity for waste extraction via injection of air into the skimmer body which served the dual function of extraction of these compounds while aerating the water.

Since their inception, there has been much advancement in the design and functionality of Protein Skimming. Vertex Skimmers utilize those technologies in the most effective way, while offering you the best value for your investment.

Superior Performance - Powerful motor pumps drive precision Needle Wheel Rotors to introduce large amounts of air and water into the skimmer body. This is done without compromising continuous delivery and velocity due to the turbulence reducing bubble plate chamber. The result is a consistent foam head and nutrient extraction.

Silent - Featuring the all inclusive Silent Air Orbit (SAO) technology, Vertex Skimmers present the ultimate solution to noise reduction. Rotors engineered with the incredible strength of Rare Earth Phosphor Magnets make certain that the entire impeller assembly spins with amazingly nominal resistance and vibration.

Easy Maintenance - Removal of the collection cup has never been so easy and effortless. Note the absence of messy union locks and twist caps used by other competing products. Vertex™ Skimmers feature an insert cup seated atop a gasket seal; minimalism simplifying your everyday routine.

Plug and Play Operation - Every Vertex Skimmer is packaged ready-in-box for immediate use in your system.
