Deltec's innovative TC-PRO (Twin chamber) range of external protein skimmers featuring Deltec's high performance pump with class leading energy to air ratio.
For over 25 years Deltec GMBH have worked hard to develop the best specialist marine aquarium equipment available on the market. They are known throughout the world for the high performance and quality of their protein skimmers. When their patent on the Deltec Pinwheel ran out it opened the market for other people to copy their ideas and to produce pinwheels of their own but without the 25+ years of experience and development that had gone into the Deltec products.
The latest generations of Deltec protein skimmers have been developed to produce the optimum air to water ratio in the reaction chamber for the lowest possible power consumption.
The TC name describes the special Twin Chamber design of the bubble chamber which is patented and has the benefit of pressurizing the pumps for higher performance and ensures that only unskimmed water passes through the pump rather than reskimming and reprocessing water in the chamber.
The bubble plate design allows the height of the skimmers to be reduced and allow them to fit in a cabinet. The primary use of the bubble chamber is to prevent turbulence from the skimmer body and neck as turbulence can pull waste loaded bubbles back into the water column causing a reduction in efficiency. The air to water ratio is so high that there is almost immediate reaction with the waste therefore there is no requirement for the tall reaction chambers found on some low air skimmers thus keeping the units compact.
