Right on cue, Skimz is ready to show off a new high capacity aquarium water pump called the Skimz Black Panther. The Skimz Panther pump is ideally suited to meet the needs of aquaculture, commercial farms, public aquariums and wholesalers with power ratings in horsepower increments.
The Skimz Panther pump comes in sizes ranging from one half to two horsepower and it is made from industrial, non-corrosive materials with special attention paid to performance in the high volume, low pressure end of the spectrum. So you won’t be using this to push venturis style skimmers but it can flow up a ton of tanks, or a few huge ones.
Skimz claims this pump also has low heat transfer, little noise, and a very favorable power draw for the amount of flow it produces. Like all major product announcements coming out right now we’ll have to wait a couple weeks until we see the devices in person at InterZoo to get a feel for their operation in real life, as well as availability and pricing.
