Red Sea Berlin Airlift 60 Internal Protein Skimmer Information



The Berlin Air-Lift is a high performance, low cost internal skimmer based on the Berlin Triple-Pass principle. The Air-Lift is powered by a lime wood air-stone attached to an external air pump (not supplied), these compact units are easy to install and maintain.

The triple-pass is combined with a powerful Venturi air injector, greatly enhancing the efficiency of the skimmer. Air bubbles and protein rich water are concentrated in the narrow inner tube, ensuring good mixing and maximum surface contact. The air/water mixture swirls up the inner tube into the wider reaction chamber, causing a relaxation of the turbulent water and separation of the protein rich foam at the water surface, which rises into the collection cup. The air bubbles move down the chamber by the force of the water current until reaching the air return skirt located at its base. The skirt effectively enlarges the diameter of the chamber, eliminating the downward force on the air bubbles. The bubbles then rise up through the chamber against the downward flow of the water (counter current), causing great turbulence and increased contact time. The Venturi air injector produces a consistent quantity of fine air bubbles, ensuring a large surface area for collection of waste materials. The skirt effectively enlarges the diameter of the chamber, eliminating the downward force on the air bubbles. The bubbles then rise up through the chamber against the downward flow of the water (counter current), causing great turbulence and increased contact time. The Venturi air injector produces a consistent quantity of fine air bubbles, ensuring a large surface area for collection of waste materials.
  • Includes 1 x limewood airstone
  • Total height: 4.92"-12.2" (12.5-31cm)
  • Air pump not included
  • Rated for aquariums up to 15 Gallons

Biggest Bang for the Buck! Product Review by Jim F (Posted on 7/13/12)

Excellent!

Comments: I have 2 of the 90s in my 75 gallon tank. Once you figure how to maintain them, you will realize that they are the biggest bang for your buck. You can often find them for $20.00 at stores that are discontinuing them. The only place I can find the limewood that will fit, is here

Great!

Comments: The Red Sea Berlin Airlift is great! Although it is to small for my 55 gallon tank! I'm sure it would work great in a smaller tank. Very easy to set up. Only thing I suggest is having a pump with some kind of adjuster to regulate the air pressure coming out of your pump. Other than that it has worked perfect! THANKS RED SEA BERLIN AIRLIFT!!!!
