The new Tunze Comline® filters
open 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.
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.
