Skimz E-Series SK181 Protein Skimmer features the highly efficient Skimz ES2000 needle wheel pump, which is suitable for aquariums up to 750 litres.

Using the combination of the conical body and bubble plate, it is the most effective skimmer in its class as it significantly reducing turbulence, bubble bursting and surface agitation.

The Skimz SK181 Protein Skimmer draws an air intake of 540 litres per hour. Has Low power consumption and superior performance which makes the SK181 an excellent choice for reefers looking for a value-for-money, attractive yet powerful protein skimmer.

No additional feed pump is required as the Skimz Sk181 draws water directly from sump.

Skimz SK181 Protein Skimmer

  • Skimz Kone E Series.

    The Skimz KONE protein skimmer series is the successful result of blending state-of-the-art technology with attractive design. KONE's conical-shape has distinct design advantages - the bubbles in the reaction chamber are forced to move vertically upward, resulting in natural foam formation to minimize bubble bursting. This natural foam formation of the bubbles reduces surface agitation, thus creating a gentle foaming within the skimmer and results in increased skimming efficiency. Together with the use of the bubble plate design, turbulence within the reaction chamber is significantly reduced, allowing maximum air flow capacity in a compact skimmer.

    All Skimz E-Series skimmers are fitted with the new Skimz ES Pumps. Skimz ES Pumps are jointly developed with a Italian pump manufacturer, using the most advanced material for the needlewheel impeller, with a“seamless-coated rare earth magnet” for unsurpassed durability and performance. The Skimz ES pumps are available in 3 models: ES2000, ES2800 and ES5000.

    Skimz’s latest design allows cleaned water to exit the skimmer chamber at its base where it is almost bubble-free. Precise adjustment of the water level within the skimmer body can now be easily achieved using the new Micro-Adjustable Valve.

    Skimz E-Series model is designed for in-sump use. No feed pump required, skimmer draws water directly from sump.
