Deltec MCE300 Skimmer


The MCE300 from Deltec.
A compact external skimmer with all of the power of the Deltec pinwheel.

Suitable for aquariums up to 85 US gallons.




New Turbo model is now supplied as standard for increased flexibility and performance.
The high manufacturing tolerances and design of the special venturi and pinwheel produce 150 lts of air per hour for the US version, giving it the same level of performance that you would expect from all Deltec skimmers and outperforming any other skimmer in its class.

The four most important things to consider for a high performance protein skimmer are:
  • Air Volume
  • Bubble Size
  • Air Volume 
  • Air Volume 
Foam Fractionation, (Protein Skimming) is a process where protein wastes are removed from water by differential electrostatic attraction at an air /water interface. The more air and the smaller the bubbles in contact with the water, the higher the surface area for reaction and the higher the efficiency of the skimmer.

The patented Deltec pinwheel rips the air into the finest bubbles for maximum effect.

Contact time is important but only if there is insufficient air for immediate reaction.

Comparative testing shows that most manufacturers claim a much higher suitable tank size for their skimmers with half the air volume or less.

Deltec don't compromise on water quality

Choose your next skimmer on £ / true performance and you will find that a Deltec skimmer will work out to be the most cost effective of the lot.
