The Smarter choice for the serious hobbyist
A new level of performance, user friendliness and affordability in protein skimming.
Peripheral Flow, Closed Loop, Skim Chamber
Inlet: Aquarium water is injected into an air pocket above the skim chamber, and is spread evenly around the periphery of the skim chamber walls, preventing turbulent flows on non-aerated water which can de-stabilize the foam production.
Aeration: The PSK aspiration pump recirculates the water in the skimmer, injecting 800 lph (200 gph) of micro air bubbles.
Foaming: The conical top of the skimming chamber concentrates the air/water mixture, forcing it up into the neck of the collection cup where it slowly transforms into dry concentrated organics-laden foam.
Outlet: The out-flowing water is collected evenly from around the periphery of the bottom of the skim chamber where it is almost bubble free.
Control: A skim regulator valve easily adjusts the foaming for a wide range of water conditions providing optimal skimming performance.
