Vertex Omega 150 Internal Protein Skimmer

Vertex Omega 150 Internal Protein Skimmer
Item Code: DPETVT55001

While most protein skimmers feature a Cylindrical or conical body, Vertex™ opted for a wine-glass shaped chamber which resulted in the best of both worlds, increasing the overall surface area while maximizing the effectiveness of the conic transition. This is no small change, this revolutionary architecture improves the overall value of the product by addressing and improving upon key design queues; efficiency, productivity and cost of production. While there are many imitations and/ or different variations of this design available, most suffer from reduced reaction-chamber Volume. This is due to that fact that they transition from bottom of the body to the top. Vertex Omega body is unparalleled in having a true cylindrical shape at the bottom and a wine glass transition to the neck. Further to that by following in the footsteps of the Alpha-Series, we were able to apply superior technology to the Omega line. First, materials and construction are of the highest quality. The body is Pressure-Thermoformed from cast acrylic, up to 10% thicker than the competitor.
Secondly, the Omega’s are imbued with one of the best pumps the industry has to offer. Omega 150 is paired with a custom Sicce™ motor-block exclusively produced for Vertex Aquaristik™. As the heart of the skimmer, the pump must be durable, efficient and quiet of operation. Bearing these factors in mind, not many other pumps can match Sicce™ for their time-proven pedigree. The custom in-house manufactured rotor is larger using a strong neodymium magnet producing Air-Intake unmatched by other similar sized skimmers of other makes.
Last but not least, the raw water is delivered through an angular Injection port into the Bubble-Chamber. This unique design produces a vorticular movement of Air/Water within the chamber increasing the contact time as well as utilizing the pumps turbulence to aggressively make for a better Air/Water Interface.
