Ultra Reef Akula Skimmer 160 <500L
How it works
The Ultra Reef AKULA UKS range of protein skimmers is a method of filtration that allows the removal of the surfactants from seawater. It pumps a mixture of aquarium water and air bubbles into a mixing chamber. By exploiting the properties of the film surface tension between air and water, it generates a foam overflowing from the main chamber, and then into a collection cup which allows for easy removal.
Modern design and low power consumption
The internal pump design is the most compact solution you could have for your aquarium. The pump is housed directly inside the main chamber to reduce the lateral ingots. To access the pump just remove the locking screws and lift off the conical chamber. Skimmers water intake is direct, so it is not necessary to use a feed pump. This solution significantly reduces power consumption and maintenance time.
Particular attention to silence
The rubber feet absorb all annoying vibrations. To silence the suction of the air, the skimmer is complete of a built-in silenced muffler to absorb the noise produced by the venturi. The exhaust system is housed on the base and submerged to avoid any noise from the water returning to the system.
Performance and reliability with Ultra Reef PSK+ Plus skimming pumps
The new Ultra Reef PSK+ Plus needle wheel pump is exclusive to Ultra Reef. This is a dedicated model of the famous PSK pump and is produced for Ultra Reef by Sicce. It is designed to produce the best air and water emulsion through a needle wheel impeller. The transparent body allows pump inspection even during operation, while reinforced impellers allow superior performance and strength.
Easy adjustment, stable and accurate regulation
The conical body is made from cast acrylic designed to improve internal flow and create homogenous thrust throughout the entire body, the shaped diffusion cup improves the separation of air and water, ensuring excellent stability even from the first start. Internal level adjustment is carried out through a screw valve and the silencer has the added flexibility of an adjustment screw to set the maximum amount of air intake.
The innovative Easy-Flip gasket system
Collection cup and internal neck feature an "Easy Flip" seal for a firm grip and easy removal during maintenance. For ease of maintenance, the neck of the cup can also be removed for easy cleaning.
