Small footprint 7 1/4 inches x 16 inches and only 22 inches tall

The Turboflotor T1000 is a powerful skimmer with a unique plumbing scheme that makes it the smartest little skimmer on the market. Taking advantage of the fact that the surface of your aquarium is where proteins collect naturally, the T1000 is designed to intake the water exiting the overflow of your tank. By delivering the surface skimmed water directly into the reaction chamber of the T1000, efficiency is maximized. If splicing into the drain-line plumbing is not an option in your system, the T1000 can be run from a tee off of your main system pump or feed by a secondary pump. The T1000 Stand Alone requires a pump to vigorously re-circulate the volume of the reaction chamber, mixing it with finely chopped air bubbles.

The T1000 is designed to be run on an Aqua Medic OR2700 (an Oceanrunner 2500 fitted with the formidable Needle Wheel impellor). Also included is a Filter Box with bio balls, which installs on the exit pipes, to shed micro-bubbles and increase your biological capacity. The skimmer itself is entirely Ozone ready; simply replace the vinyl airline with silicone tubing to connect the ozone generator to the venturi. Either way you plumb it the Turboflotor T1000 Stand Alone is the best skimmer available in this price range and easily out-performs skimmers costing twice the price.

Theory


Protein skimming is a method of physical water treatment. It uses a phenomenon know from our daily experience: the adhesion of surface active substances to air water layers. If we add a drop of oil to a water surface, a thin film is produced with a thickness of one molecule. Surface active compounds like protein behave in the same way. The Turboflotor 1000 Stand Alone uses the bubbles it creates to increase the amount of surface area to which waste substances can attach. These bubbles are forced into the reaction chamber in such a way that they undergo a long contact time within the counter current. The bubbles laden with organic substances, rise to the top to form a compact foam that is dehydrated and pushed into the collection cup. This method removes waste from the aquarium water before they can become part of the biological waste cycle.

The Ocean Runner 2700 draws water from the reaction chamber, mixes it with air, which is chopped up into smaller air bubbles and returned to the reaction chamber. The water flow through the skimmer is provided either by gravity feed form the tank overflow or by a separate power head which draws from the sump. The cleaned water is transported via two out flow tubes on the outside of the reaction chamber back into the sump.
