- Removes dissolved organics and waste products with extreme efficiency
- Greatly benifits water quality and clarity
- Increases oxygen levels and stabilizes pH
- Reduces Nitrate, Phosphate and Nitrite levels
Powered by a patent pending paddle-mixing injection system, the Fission Skimmer violently mixes air with water—creating a column of millions of tiny microbubbles. These tiny microbubbles provide an enormous surface area for the adsorption of organic compounds and waste products. The impellers unique paddle plates remain rigid during rotation, pushing more water and increasing contact time while still hacking those bubbles into a dense foam froth. Paddle plate impellers create up to 3 times the amount of microbubbles and contact time compared to other needle-wheel type skimmers.Functionality Squared
Designed for in-sump only applications, the skimmer inlet fitting attaches to any primary 1/2" water flow line such as a powerhead, canister filter or external pump. Water tight pump unions provide easy disassembly for pump cleaning and allow the pump to be used in or out of the water. Simply connect the skimmer inlet to a powerhead or existing plumbing line, adjust the water flow to the correct flowrate and skim-away.System Singular
Fission skimmers are built for performance with unprecented precision to detail. Cell-cast acrylic body and clean molded connection parts make it a unit that will provide years of outstanding performance. The collection cup is easy-to-remove and has a rubber grommet connection assembly that ensures a snug fit. A fully adjustable flow valve completely allows you to control the water height within the skimmer body—maximizing foam collection. The drain port in the collection cup makes it easy to collect the foam and drain it away from your system. The microbubble trap and micron sock capture any tiny errant bubbles. To keep family members happy, the paddle mixing-injection system includes an air silencer to keep things quiet and peaceful.What`s Included
