The rigid meshwheel above is a new development in the mesh wheel arms race: hot on the heels of the alloy meshwheels and hastelloy impellers, the new solid meshwheel from Nano Customs makes sapphire skimmers rock like nothing else (except the metal meshwheel). The rigid material is much more solid than it appears and we are impressed with how the stuff is really open but also made up of very fine structure. The new rigid meshwheel is the heart of most of the drop-in style sapphire aquatics skimmers for your bio and nano cubes but larger rigid meshwheel impellers are under development for existing and forthcoming medium sized skimmers.
