Deltec 1500i DC Multi-Stage Power Control Protein Skimmer with Manual Self Cleaning Head
The new Deltec 1500i 24VDC protein skimmer is suitable for aquariums from 700 up to 1500 liters. The Deltec 1500i comes with some great safety features. Should the water level in the sump suddenly exceed the maximum depth for the skimmer, or the air feed becomes blocked, the new emergency overflow system prevents the collection cup from overflowing.
As the water level rises within the protein skimmer the air feed to the pump will shut off automatically via the emergency overflow further reducing the chance of foam flooding the skimmer cup.
The base is a new hollow design where the water flows through to the level adjustment and indicator tubes. This new design feature means that water will exit the protein skimmer body from the lowest point greatly reducing the chance of micro bubbles escaping the body, increasing air- water contact time and also reducing noise and turbulence within the protein skimmer body.
Removing the pump for cleaning and maintenance can be achieved in 20 seconds, thus keeping the skimmer running at optimal efficiency is a breeze.
With the body of the skimmer being a cylinder and not tapered or conical shape, all the small air bubbles can rise unhindered, fully saturated and will only burst in the foam pot riser, adding to the efficiency and performance of Deltec skimmers
The Deltec Skimmer 1500i is operated with the Deltec DCC3. With only 22 watts about 1000 litres of air are generated.
For the Deltec Skimmer 1500i, there is an optional cleaning head system, whereby the inner standpipe is cleaned by deposits by turning the connection cup. If these deposits are not removed at regular intervals, the skimming performance is drastically reduced over time as foam bubbles burst prematurely at this layer and thus cannot contribute to water purification.
Thanks to the ergonomic cylinder shape, the Deltec Skimmer 1500i achieves the best skimming results. The shape of the skimmer does not taper upwards. This allows the small air bubbles to rise unhindered, are fully saturated and burst only in the riser of the connection cup. From there, the collected broth can be discharged via a drain hose without having to take the connection cup.
The water level in the skimmer can be read off at the emergency overflow pipe. Furthermore, the marks for the minimum and maximum level help with the perfect adjustment of the water level. Due to the possibility of exchanging the emergency overflow pipe with the regulator pipe, you can decide for yourself how the pipes are arranged.
Disassembly, Dimensions & Construction
Regularly required cleaning of the pump is very easy thanks to the easy and fast disassembly of the skimmer. According to the manufacturer, the pump can be removed from the skimmer in a few seconds. The Deltec Skimmer 1500i can be mounted and disassembled without tools. The dimensions of the skimmer are selected so that you can place them comfortably in your filter basin. Due to the high volume of the cylinder shape, a small base area is sufficient. You can operate the skimmer variably in 15 to 25 cm water depth.
