AquaC Remora Hang-On Protein Skimmer (No Pump) Information



The revolutionary AquaC protein skimmers do not use venturis, downdraft tubes, or air pumps; they employ the patented "Spray Injection System." This innovation allows the protein skimmer to efficiently draw in much more air than any other of the top protein skimmers. This coupled with the superiorly designed compact reaction chamber yields results that will literally blow the waste out of your water.

How does Spray Injection Work?

In 1998, Jason Kim (owner and founder of AquaC) developed a patented process of protein skimming which has come to be known as Spray Injection. Unlike previous forms of skimming, our spray injection method enables huge amounts of air and water to be processed with a relatively small pump. Although it is a simple process, there is still some confusion as to how the spray injector works.

Imagine that you're washing your car – you've got a bucket full of soapy water and a garden hose with a fast-moving stream of water. By placing your thumb over the end of the hose, you can disrupt the stream into a turbulent, high –pressure spray. Now direct that spray down into the bucket of water, and you'll generate a massive amount of bubbles and air flow. That is exactly how our spray injector works.

The skimmer body acts as a water reservoir – the bucket in the example above. Water is pumped through the spray injector, which has a special nozzle that fans the water out into a pressurized spray. This spray shoots into the skimmer body, generating millions of tiny air bubbles. As the bubbles are formed, more air is sucked into the skimmer as a result of the local drop in pressure and the process continues.

Most other forms of protein skimming rely on special valves or media to generate the air flow, and these parts quickly become clogged with salt, dust, or even mineral deposits. The AquaC spray injector is a relatively large nozzle that resists clogging, and when combined with a pump prefilter, can be considered maintenance free.

"For its compact size and simple design, The AquaC protein skimmer is able to process a large volume of water and efficiently remove organic pollutants. I`m very happy with it!"

Comments: Bought this skimmer 7 months ago for my 48 gallon reef tank. Still works great and it is virtually maintenance free.

Excellent!

Comments: Easy to setup and run. I haven't adjusted anything for eight months now. I just clean the cup when needed. Recommend for any tank 55 gallons or less.

GR8 skimmer Product Review by silvrlady (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: Have been using this skimmer for a few weeks now and it is amazing!! Beats my previous skimmers by miles and was so very easy to begin. Just put it together slide it onto the tank and plug it in. Contrary to so other reviews I do not find it noisy in the least. It is in my living room and I sit next to the tank and I can hardly tell it is running except for all the yucky foam. I have a 54 gal half circle reef tank.

Comments: I did my research and concluded that there is no other better skimmer at this level of skimming than this skimmer. I bought mine here a MD, and have been more than satisfied with this product.

Excellent!

Comments: I have had this skimmer for 3 months now and the amount it is able to pull out of my tank is truly remarkable. No other skimmer under $350 comes close.
