Earlier this week, we told you about the upcoming Skimz Monzter II. While we wait, we wanted to show you what else Skimz has been up to. The Skimz TurboMagnum has been installed at a shrimp farm in Singapore. This giant skimmer is 600mm diameter (23.6″) and 2.5 meters (over 8′) tall!! The Skimz TurboMagnum is powered by a 2 16,000 l/h pumps made by a Spanish manufacturer, and incorporate a custom venturi that Skimz developed together with a 3rd party. Each one of these large skimmers is rated for 20,000 liters (~5283 gallons), and comes with a self cleaning head, similar to the Bubble King skimmer. In addition to the rotating neck cleaner, the Skimz TurboMagnum has 3 freshwater jets that clean the inside of the cup. The large skimmer body of the Skimz TurboMagnum utilizes a bubble plate, and the giant cup has a large drain pipe attached to it.

Skimz actually offers the TurboMagnum with diameters between 300 and 1000mm, and heights of 2-2.5 meters (made to the client’s specifications). Anyone want to try this bad boy on their system?
