The New Skimz KONE protein skimmer is the successful result of blending state-of-the-art technology with attractive design.
KONE's conical-shape has distinct design advantages - the bubbles in the reaction chamber are forced to move vertically upward, resulting in natural foam formation to minimize bubble bursting. This natural foam formation of the bubbles reduces surface agitation, thus creating a gentle foaming within the skimmer and results in increased skimming efficiency. Together with the use of the bubble plate design, turbulence within the reaction chamber is significantly reduced, allowing maximum air flow capacity in a compact skimmer.
All SKIMZ E-Series skimmers are fitted with the new SKIMZ ES Pumps. SKIMZ ES Pumps are jointly developed with Italian pump manufacturer, using the most advanced material for the needlewheel impeller, “seamless-coated rare earth magnet” for unsurpassed durability and performance. The SKIMZ ES pumps are available in 3 models: ES2000, ES2800 and ES5000.
SKIMZ’s latest design allows cleaned water to exit the skimmer chamber at its base where it is almost bubble-free. Precise adjustment of the water level within the skimmer body can now be easily achieved using the new Micro-Adjustable Valve.
Skimz E-Series external model is designed for both in-sump and out-sump use, and should be provided with water from a separate feed pump or via gravity feed.

Skimz E-Series SK252 Protein Skimmer features the more powerful Skimz ES5000 needlewheel pump. With the combination of the conical body and bubble plate, it is the most effective skimmer in its class by significantly reducing turbulence, bubble bursting and surface agitation. The SK222 draws an air intake of 960 litres per hour, suitable for tanks up to 2,000 litres.
is engineered for the advanced reefer seeking an extreme performance skimmer. Fitted with 2 Skimz ES5000 needlewheel pumps, the SK252 draws an amazing 1920 litres per hour of air. The incredible skimming performance of the SK252 makes it suitable for tanks up to 3000 litres and will meet the needs of the most demanding reefer.
The SK252 protein skimmer should be provided with water from the aquarium either from a separate pump or gravity feed.
