Tunze Comline DOC DC Protein Skimmer 9004 (9004.001)

The same popular 9004 skimmer is now available with an efficient DC pump!

The new Tunze Comline® filters opens the way for compact aquarium components designed for internal operation, are ultra-functional and are highly-sophisticated. The system creates a natural atmosphere in the aquarium at a minimum size. The goal always remains the same, more performance and less space.

The Comline® DOC Skimmer 9004 is designed for use in seawater mixed aquariums / soft coral aquariums up to 250 litres (66 USgal.) or sensitive reef biotopes with stone corals up to 150 litres (40 USgal.). It works based on the TUNZE® Flash Skimming principle, water supply is provided via an efficient surface intake system with bacteria film removal. Thus, the system can also be used as a “standalone solution” in the aquarium. The featured TUNZE® Foamer generates many fine air bubbles with a diameter between 0.1 and 0.3mm, which ensures particularly silent operation.

The “Flash skimming” principle enables highly efficient foam production.
Principle: Protein-rich surface water is mixed with water thoroughly in the TUNZE® Foamer. On the surface of the air bubbles forming, pollutants such as protein, cellulose, dead cells, etc. are adsorbed immediately, the air bubbles are very fine, with a diameter between 0.1 and 0.3mm. The water/air mixture is expanded and stabilized in the skimmer cup, the water returns to the aquarium, and the protein-loaded air bubbles reach the skimmer cup reactor. The patented anti-overfoaming system intermediate chamber with phase water prevents the skimmer from overfoaming and controls the skimmer performance, depending on the water level and organic load.
The particularly high efficiency of the “flash skimming” principle compared to large skimmers with long contact time is obtained because the substances adsorbed by the air bubbles are not released again, thus they don`t return to the aquarium water again.

Features:

  • Surface intake with bacteria film removal.
  • Skimmer cup, 0.2l (.05 USgal.) volume, also accommodates the foam reactor, easy to remove.
  • Attachment with a patented magnet holder for a glass thickness of up to 1/2".
  • Intermediate chamber with patented anti-overfoaming system.
  • TUNZE® Foamer 9004.040, high air output and low energy consumption (4W).
  • Bubble-free outgoing water.
  • New “Comline® Design”: comfortable use, elegant and unobtrusive in the aquarium.
  • Air flow regulation and silencer for an exceptionally quiet operation.
  • Made in Germany, 2-year manufacturer`s warranty

Q
My skimmer chamber is 4 x 4.7 x 17, will this skimmer fit if I rotate it 90 degrees, have the magnet braced on the inside of the chamber over?
Asked : Sep 16, 2019
By : Sean, IL
 
 
 
A
It would be very helpful if everyone posted dimensions with W x D x H indicators such as 4"W by 4.7"D by 17"H so when trying to answer we understood what was height versus depth. I am not so sure you meant you intended to try to mount a skimmer horizontally as the prior answer said not to do. I suspect you meant keep it vertical but rotate 90 degrees as in the skimmer front not facing the front of the tank. But I'd need follow up reply to understand that.

REVIEW
This is an exceptional skimmer for its size. I was a little hesitant at first to purchase due to the size. I have a 20 gal nano reef with no external sump setup so I needed to place the skimmer in the display. The 9004 started skimming waste within 24 hr. Very Impressive!

Great Skimmer

PROS
Very quiet, making skim mate right out of the box, seems to be very well built
CONS
Not really a con but you need to be aware that this skimmer is an in tank skimmer with the working sections being in your tank, unlike a hang on back skimmer where most of the skimmer is outside the tank.
REVIEW
Been in the hobby for 25 years. Had tanks ranging from 10 gal to 210 mixed reef. This is the first skimmer I found that starting skimming right out of the box the first day. This is also the most quiet skimmer I have ever had. Wouldn't even know it was running.

This skimmer works great amd very quiet. The external control to allow temporary shut off is also a thoughtful design to allow easy collection cup cleaning. The only reason I am not rating this at five star is that when I first received the unit all of the unit’s internals got messed up from the s...Read More
