Deltec AP851 Skimmer

 Deltec AP851 Protein Skimmer

The AP851 Protein Skimmer is a well established favourite for aquariums up to 1500lts, (333 UK gallons)

It incorporates the patented “Neuhaus” Pinwheel system in a modified Eheim 1260 pump, resulting in unsurpassed skimming performance.

The AP851 produces a maximum level of air of 600 lts per hour.


Air is drawn in automatically through an air intake adaptor. The rotation of the water/air mixture provides a long contact time with the pollutants resulting in a highly efficient performance. The extremely fine water/air mixture is pumped into the contact tube, where it rises and is collected in a removable cup at the top of the skimmer.
