Tunze Comline DOC Skimmer 9001 DC

Due to its biotope composition, every marine aquarium has a different sensitivity with respect to the organic load. Based on a standard marine aquarium with leather corals, the data on the suitable aquarium size may differ for other biotope compositions. For this reason, the aquarium volumes recommended for the skimmer should be reduced for more sensitive biotopes, if and when necessary.

The TUNZE Comline opens the way for compact aquarium components for internal operation, ultra-functional, sophisticated and with clearly defined lines.

The Comline DOC Skimmer is a multi-functional product line with excellent features:

Surface and substrate zone intake
High flow propeller pump filter
Flash protein skimming principle enables highly efficient foam production
Creates a natural environment in the aquarium with a compact footprint
More performance from less space

Comline® components meet these requirements and the visual harmony of the aquarium is maintained. It is no longer necessary to hide technical equipment in the aquarium; instead, it forms an integral part of it. The system is highly effective; all organic pollutants are removed from the environment directly, while the path the water has to cover is short and direct. The risk of leakage is almost zero. The highly efficient technology enables reduction of the volume of the internal equipment, as well as significantly reducing the energy consumption.

Simple, quiet and effective – these are the current demands towards aquarium components. That is precisely what distinguishes the small Comline® DOC Skimmer 9001 – a true “plug and play” skimmer for small seawater aquariums with 20 to 140 liters. There is no complicated setting or regular adjustment required for the operation. A simple installation into a corner of the aquarium is sufficient and it will work autonomously.

Organic-rich surface water is mixed thoroughly with small air bubbles in the TUNZE® Foamer. On the surface of the air bubbles, pollutants such as protein, cellulose, dead cells, etc. are adsorbed immediately, the air bubbles are very fine, with a diameter between .1 and .3 mm (.004″ – .012″). The water / air mixture expands and stabilizes in the skimmer cup reactor, the water returns to the aquarium, and the protein-loaded air bubbles spill over into the skimmer cup. The patented anti-overfoaming system intermediate chamber prevents the skimmer from overfoaming and controls the skimmer performance, depending on the water level and organic load.

The particularly high efficiency of the flash skimming principle, compared to large skimmers with long contact time, is obtained because the substances adsorbed by the air bubbles are not released again, thus they don’t return to the aquarium water.
