Nyos Quantum Product Details
The Nyos is built to perform at the highest level. It is energy efficient, using only 18 watts and is easy to maintain. Nyos prides itself on smotth and quiet operation. The Quantum is dead silent when running and cannot be heard while operating in a sump. Protein skimmers should be seen, but not heard right?
The skimmer is powered with Nyos' patented Quantum 3.0 pump. It is a German engineered pump that is super easy to maintain and reliable. Nyos backs their skimmer product with a 2 year warranty.
Nyos Quantum Hybrid Wheel Design
The pump has an innovative clear view feature. This allows you to inspect the impeller without having to take apart the skimmer. You can spot any potential problems without the hassle of disassembling everything. Simply genius!
The pump creates a innovative Hybrid wheel. The precisely manufactured impeller is built with super light materials and combines the strengths of a needle wheel and lattice wheel. The hybrid design ensures that only the finest micro air bubbles are generated, which means this skimmer will pull the most organics out of its skimmate then any other skimmer on the market.
Titanium Grade 2 Screws
The Nyos skimmer body and frame is held together with Titanium Grade 2 Screws. These are corrosion resistant and designed to operate in saltwater. They are also more durable than the cheaper plastic screws you made find in lesser skimmer designs.
Nyos Quantum Twister Bubble Plate
In order to have bubble remain in contact with your water for as long as possible, Nyos design a twister bubble plate. This plat gives the bubbles additional spins and swirls within the bubble vortex in the body of your skimmer. Since the bubbles have more contact time in your water, the result is more organic pulled out of your water.
Silicone Silencer Feet
The Nyos skimmer is equipped with silicone silence feet. This means you will not need to place the skimmer on a silicon mat and worry about the vibrations making noise in your aquarium. The pump pad is also the thickest you will find on the market ensuring the pumps vibrations are not heard by you.
