Skimming, filtering and aerating a saltwater aquarium without power consumption is impossible. But, no unit uses less current than TUNZE® DOC Skimmer 9410. At a power consumption of only 11 W (15 W), the DOC Skimmer has equivalent performance to much larger skimmers consuming more than twice as much power. In addition, no settings are required, it is extremely silent and it is easy to operate.
DOC Skimmer 9410 is placed in aquarium cabinets easily at a variable level and requires no settings for operation. It operates in conjunction with TUNZE® Hydrofoamer 9410.040, which ensures foam production and water circulation at the same time. The open water circuit ensures a water flow rate of approx. 900 l/h (237 USgal./h). Skimmer cup and foam reactor are one unit like in all TUNZE® DOC skimmers: Every cleaning of the skimmer cup leads to the reactor being cleaned at the same time, and thus a very constant and efficient foam production is ensured. During the cleaning process, the Hydrofoamer remains operational and automatically flushes the air passages and the air nozzle.
In order to increase the foam capacity, the skimmer cup 0220.140 can be replaced by the foam extraction unit 9020.140 (not contained in the scope of delivery).
Skimmer cup (ø160 mm (6.2 in.)) with large capacity; also contains the foam reactor; can be removed easily.
Nipple for ozone connection. Ozone improves the skimming process and at the same time removes any yellowing matter in the aquarium water.
The removable post-filter at the outlet of the skimmer permits perfect mechanical filtration through 300 µm (11.8 mil) nylon mesh with little biological action only. This ensures that no unwanted nutrient and nitrate sources develop in case of longer cleaning intervals. The filter can be filled with other filter media, such as activated carbon or phosphate absorber.
Stable base which also reduces the water velocity in the lower zone of the skimmer.
The mixing chamber with flow distributor binds an especially high amount of organic material.
The booster ring permits a fine adjustment of the performance, thus adapting the water level inside the skimmer as required for the production of somewhat wetter foam, for example.
Intermediate chamber with phase water: The patented Anti-Overfoaming System prevents an overfoaming of the skimmer and regulates the skimming action according to surface tension of the aquarium water and water level. The skimmer operates independently and automatically sets its best efficiency.
Recommended for salt water aquariums up to 1,000 liters (265 USgal.).
