The innovative AquaC Remora Pro Hang-On Protein Skimmer from Pet Store
is not like your ordinary skimmers. It does not employ downdraft tubes, venturis or even air pumps. It uses the Spray Injection System, AquaC's patented technology that allows the skimmer to suck air more efficiently compared to conventional protein skimmers. The Spray Injection System, plus the advance design of the skimmer's reaction chamber, gives top-rated results.
Unlike the traditional hang on protein skimmers, the AquaC Remora Pro uses a new technology better than the old venturis system. The method that AquaC Remora Pro employs allows a rather small pump to process large amounts of water and air. And since the AquaC Remora Pro does not rely on other filtering media such as venturis and other components like downdraft tubes and pumps, it eliminates the risk of clogs and particle build up. No build up means no maintenance needed! Aside from these features, the AquaC Remora Pro also helps reduce algae growth; thanks to the gray acrylic material that this high-quality skimmer is made of.
With its amazing features, compact size and ease of installation, the AquaC Remora Pro Hang-On Protein Skimmer is simply one of the best hang-on protein skimmers
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!"Fernando Nosratpour, Senior Aquarist
