Deltec skimmers are characterized by particularly good skimming results. The Deltec Skimmer 600i has a newly developed emergency overflow. This prevents the "boil over" of the skimmer with reduced air supply, e.g. by kinking the silicone hose or foreign bodies in the air intake line. If the air supply is reduced, the water level in the skimmer increases. In extreme cases, this can cause the skimmer to "overcook" and cause the water to rise to push it into the foam pot and flush the dirt back into the aquarium. This can lead to an extreme load on the water. The emergency overflow prevents the water from rising above a certain level and overcooking it.
Emergency overflow pipe & regulator tube
At the emergency overflow pipe the water level can be read in the skimmer. In addition, minimum and maximum markings help to optimize the water level. The possibility to exchange the emergency overflow pipe with the regulator pipe allows the user to decide how the pipes are arranged.
The Deltec Skimmer 600i is powered by the Deltec DCC 2 pump. This 24V DC pump is adjustable via an eight-stage controller and can thus be optimally adjusted to the water level and the water load. At the optimal level 3 (for most aquariums) approx. 500 liters of air are generated with only 11 watts.
The ergonomic cylinder shape
The ergonomic cylindrical shape of the Deltec Skimmer 600i gives you the best results when it comes to skinning. The shape of the skimmer does not taper upwards. Thus, the small air bubbles can rise unhindered, are fully saturated and burst only in the riser of the foam pot.
Hollow chamber floor
An additional innovation of the Deltec Skimmer 600i is the hollow floor. This helps to dampen the noise even further, making the already quiet Deltec Skimmer 600i is called "whisper quiet". In addition, the water flows back through the hollow floor. That the water is led out of the skimmer at the lowest possible point, which means that almost no air bubbles can flow into the aquarium anymore.
Disassembly, dimensions & construction
The regularly required cleaning of the pump is very easy due to the simple and quick disassembly of the skimmer. The Deltec Skimmer 600i can be mounted and dismounted without tools. Our tests have shown that you can remove the pump from the skimmer in less than 20 seconds.
The dimensions of our skimmer are chosen so that they can be placed comfortably in their filter tank. Due to the high volume of the cylindrical shape, a small footprint is sufficient. You can operate the Deltec Skimmer 600i variably in 15cm to 25 cm water depth.
