The MCX300 Internal from Deltec. A compact sump skimmer for custom sumps with a specific water depth. The stripped down version of the ever popular MCE300 is designed to fit into a sump which has a specific water depth which the user can create by bonding in a glass partition during the sumps construction phase. Water from the aquarium should flow into this section and then over flow into the rest of the sump. Suitable for aquariums up to 320 lts - 70 UK gallons - 85 US gallons. The high manufacturing tolerances and design of the special venturi and pinwheel produce 150 lts of air per hour, giving it the same level of performance that you would expect from all Deltec skimmers and outperforming any other skimmer in its class. The four most important things to consider for a high performance protein skimmer are:
Foam Fractionation (Protein Skimming) is a process where protein wastes are removed from water by differential electrostatic attraction at an air /water interface. The more air and the smaller the bubbles in contact with the water, the higher the surface area for reaction and the higher the efficiency of the skimmer. The patented Deltec pinwheel rips the air into the finest bubbles for maximum effect. Contact time is important but only if there is insufficient air for immediate reaction. Comparative testing shows that most manufacturers claim a much higher suitable tank size for their skimmers with half the air volume or less.
