Singapore-based Skimz recently announced a new line of protein skimmer pump dubbed the E series. The needlewheel design was developed jointly with what the website refers to as an “Italian pump manufacturer” and uses seamless coated rare Earth magnets in the design. From the images online, we are pretty certain these pumps were developed by Eden, sharing many of the design characteristics of previous pumps released by Eheim. The new line of pumps (E4, E8, E10 and E12) are smaller but are rated up to 1,200 liters per hour of air draw and if they are on par with similar pumps, should have a lower power consumption. No pricing or water movement specs on this pump yet but it looks as if this line of pumps will be featured on Skimz protein skimmers replacing the AquaBee pumps currently used on their products. We’ll be keeping an eye out for these pumps and hopefully bring back more details from InterZoo.
