*Quantum® skimmers are characterized by high skimming performance
*Reliable skimmers provide the same, consistent level of performance over a long period of time
*Energy-efficient protein skimmer boasts minimal power usage

The NYOS® Quantum® Protein Skimmer is an efficient and silent high performance skimmer. Four things are characteristic for the NYOS® Quantum® skimmer: extreme performance, smooth and quiet operation, low power consumption, and ease of maintenance. NYOS® Quantum® features the following innovative details:

1. The new NYOS® Hybrid Wheel
The heart of every skimmer is its propulsion. That is why NYOS developed a new high-performance drive for the Quantum®: the Hybrid Wheel. This especially precisely manufactured impeller, built with superlight materials, combines the advantages of a needle wheel and a lattice wheel. The Hybrid Wheel is characterised by its lattice-shaped base, on which numerous very narrow needles are mounted. This structure ensures that countless extremely fine micro air bubbles are generated. The greatly reduced weight and the high precision lead to lower maintenance and low energy consumption.

2. NYOS® Clear-View Reactor
The hybrid wheel needs a pump chamber that is specially adapted to it. Enter the NYOS® Clear-View Reactor. The Clear-View Reactor is a transparent, performance-optimized, large-volume reaction chamber in which the water-air mixture is generated. In combination with the hybrid wheel and the adapted venturi nozzle, it produces an extreme air performance with an optimum air-water ratio. Its transparency means that any foreign bodies can be identified easily. At the same time it is possible to see the huge performance of the pump in operation. Stylish and practical!

3. The NYOS® Twister
Extreme air performance and the finest bubbles are one thing. But in order to achieve optimum skimming, the bubbles that are generated must also remain in contact with the water for as long as possible. That is why, in addition to the normal bubble plate, NYOS developed the saw-blade shaped Twister. This gives the bubbles an additional spin and swirls them further in a vortex. This greatly increases the contact time of the air bubbles in the water column.

4. Combination of form and function: the Sinus design
In this so-called Sinus design the air bubbles can rise without the formation of poor-flow zones at disruptive corners.

5. Precision and details
A good idea must be implemented perfectly to the very last detail. Each Quantum® is therefore characterised by the following:
1. Extremely non-breakable high-performance waves from zirconium dioxide (strength 1600 MPa Vickers hardness)
2. Nine sea-waterproof screws from pure titanium grade 2
3. Precise micro-adjustment screws to fine-tune the water level
4. Full decoupling by means of silicone feet
5. Skimming pot with twist-lock seal
6. Ready-to-use plug-and-play device

6. Optimized, variable setting options
Each aquarium is different. That is why NYOS® Quantum® can be adapted individually to all aquarium conditions: water quantity and air quantity can be set separately and independently of each other. An approximate setting of the water level is achieved by means of the water setting pipe, while the especially precise micro-adjustment screw, which is also included, allows an additional fine-tuning of the water level.

7. Compact construction yet can be dismantled completely
NYOS® Quantum® deliberately does not use any externally mounted, bulky pumps, allowing the unit to be dismantled completely.
