Tunze DOC Skimmer DC are the next evolution in the innovative line of protein skimmers from Tunze. The DOC skimmers with their internal water placement, magnet mount and built-in surface skimming have always been in a class of their own, and with new forthcoming controllable DC pumps the DOC skimmers will be getting even better.
The DOC Skimmer 9012, 9004 and 9001 will all get the DC pump refresh this fall which will make them more effective skimmer pumps. Adding DC pumps to the DOC skimmer line imparts on them a greater degree of control for the adjustment of protein skimming performance.
Tunze’s DOC Skimmer models already boast extremely energy efficient specifications with the 9004 and 9001 running at a mere handful of watts, yet when they get paired up with their new DC needle wheel pumps they’ll be even more energy efficient. In addition to improved performance, the DC versions of the DOC skimmers will also enjoy newfound features like a stop-timer for feeding or cup cleaning.
But of course the best new feature that all DC-powered protein skimmers is the ability to fine tune the exact power level of the water pump so you can get that perfect balance of air and water mixture as well as water level inside the skimmer. Expect the Tunze DOC Skimmer DC to start shipping this fall with cost being just a tad more than the current 9012, 9004 and 9001 prices.
