NYOS® QUANTUM® Protein Skimmers are renowned for their quality and efficient skimming capabilities. Built to perform, they offer extreme performance, very smooth operation and low power consumption whilst being especially easy to maintain. Above all they offer consistency offering an effective long term skim as a result of their optimal air-water mixture and reliable pump.

More Details...

The new NYOS® Hybrid Wheel is the heart of this skimmer's function and combines the well known needle wheel with a lattice wheel, ensuring countless, extremely fine micro air bubbles. The NYOS® Clear-View Reactor is a specially adapted chamber in which the water-air mixture is generated. It is a transparent, performance-optimised large-volume reaction chamber. The transparency means that any foreign bodies can be identified easily and at the same time it is possible to see the huge performance of the pump in operation. Stylish and practical!

Extreme air performance and the finest bubbles are one thing. But in order to achieve optimum skimming, the bubbles that are generated must also remain in contact with the water for as long as possible. That is why, in addition to our normal bubble plate, we have developed the saw-blade shaped NYOS® Twister. This gives the bubbles an additional spin and swirls them further in a vortex. This greatly increases the contact time of the air bubbles in the water column.

Water doesn’t like corners. That is why Nyos have developed a flow-optimised, protected double-S form. In this so-called Sinus design the air bubbles can rise without hindrance and completely free, ergonomically so to speak, without the formation of poor-flow zones at disruptive corners.3.

Each aquarium is different. That is why NYOS® Quantum® can be adapted individually to all aquarium conditions: water quantity and air quantity can be set separately and independently of each other. An approximate setting of the water level is achieved by means of the water setting pipe, while the especially precise micro-adjustment screw, which is also included, allows an additional fine-tuning of the water level to ensure you can achieve the perfect skim.

A good idea must be implemented perfectly to the very last detail. Each Quantum® is therefore characterised by the following:

1. Extremely non-breakable high-performance waves from zirconium dioxide (strength 1600 MPa Vickers hardness)
2. Nine sea-waterproof screws from pure titanium grade 2
3. Precise micro-adjustment screws to fine-tune the water level
4. Full decoupling by means of silicone feet
5. Skimming pot with twist-lock seal
6. Ready-to-use plug-and-play device
