Tunze DOC Skimmer 9410

Posted on Monday, September 21st, 2009 at 10:24 am

Skimming, filtering and aerating a saltwater aquarium without power consumption is impossible. But, no unit uses less current than TUNZE® DOC Skimmer 9410. At a power consumption of only 12 W (16 W), the new DOC Skimmer has equivalent performance to much larger skimmers consuming more than twice as much power. In addition, no settings are required; it is extremely silent; it is easy to operate and it is nice to look at.

DOC Skimmer 9410 easily placed in aquarium cabinet filters with a variable level and requires no settings for operation. It operates in conjunction with TUNZE® Hydrofoamer 9410.04, which ensures foam production and water circulation at the same time. The open water circuit ensures a water flow rate of 900 l/h (237 USgal./h). Skimmer cup and foam reactor are one unit like in all TUNZE® DOC skimmers: Every cleaning of the skimmer cup leads to the reactor being cleaned at the same time, and thus a very constant and efficient foam production is ensured.

During the cleaning process, the Hydrofoamer remains operational and automatically flushes the air passages.

In order to use the water energy at the outlet of the skimmer, the DOC skimmer is fitted with a removable post-filter which carries out a perfect mechanical filtration through 50µm acrylic wadding fibres with minimal biological action.  This ensures that no unwanted nutrients and nitrate sources develop in case of longer cleaning intervals. The post-filter can also be filled with other filter media, such as activated carbon or phosphate absorbers; its spare filter can be replaced easily.
