Vortex Reaction Chamber is much more efficient than air-driven protein skimmers. It creates a powerful whirling, swirling column of air and water that rapidly draws dissolved wastes (protein-laden bubbles) upward through the column and into the high-capacity Collection Chamber, where they burst to form a frothy solution. This solution of unhealthful dissolved organic compounds is contained there, where it is kept separate from clean water until it can be removed. The large capacity cup holds more and needs emptying less often.
Adjustable water flow and air injection rate for precise performance.
Customer comment: This is a great little protein skimmer - especially for the price. If it springs a leak, it is almost always an O ring. Because it is a less expensive model, the O rings need to be reseated a little more often.
Completely assembled. Ready to go right out of the box.
This compact skimmer is driven by a 8 watt needle-wheel impeller pump for energy efficiency and effective organic waste removal. Mounting bracket and suction cups included for convenient placement and quiet operation inside your aquarium.
Includes installation and maintenance CD for easy reference
The Protein Skimmer is driven by a rejuvenation venturi powerhead. Bubble dwell time is increased by the counter-current flow in the skimmer column. The quality of the foam collected can be controlled by raising and lowering the collection cup.
To set up the BAK-PAKô 2, hang the unit behind the aquarium and plug it in -- that's it. New improved design incorporates an easy to clean intake tube and an enclosed, directional outflow to reduce salt splash and micro-bubbles entering into tank. The new design also uses a smoke colored break-resistant collection cup.
The new Accela pump is similar to the Maxi-jet 1200, however, it includes some important added benefits. The pump has been modified to include a venturi intake which efficiently draws in more air with less restriction on the pump. This results in more effective protein skimming with a significantly increased "sweet spot" for skimmer operation.
CPR is proud to introduce the hang-on skimmer that all reefkeepers have been waiting for, the Cyclone BAK-PAKô 2R+. This new skimmer is designed for use on reef tanks where biological filtration is not necessary, but still incorporates all of the other features that have made the BAK-PAKô line of skimmers so popular.
New "Tri Chamber" design of the BAK-PAKô 2R+ takes the place of the biological section, and when combined with a new and improved outlet design, provides an effective way to reduce bubbles caused by system imbalances.
Once inside, the energy-efficient, multi-venturi air pump adds countless small, uniform bubbles to the water, perfect for capturing aquarium waste and carrying it to the adjustable collection cup. Adjust your collection cup by simply raising or lowering the height of the cup. Air-control valve allows further adjustment.
In-tank protein skimmer features a special intake grid that functions as an effective surface skimmer to aid skimmer function and improve aquarium water quality.
Easy-to-use magnet-suction cup mounting system ensures secure and convenient placement.
