Remove organic wastes from water safely and effectively with a protein skimmer, also known as a protein fractionator or a foam fractionator. While mechanical filters do an excellent job of removing large particulate matter from tanks, they are not as effective at removing protein and organic materials and they may promote the growth of bacteria. A foam fractionator uses only oxygen or ozone to create air bubbles, which capture organics and fine particles as they pass through water. These contaminants are trapped in foam at the top of the device and rinsed away. Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems carries several high-quality, long-lasting protein skimmers and fractionators to help keep your aquaculture water clean and healthy.
When used correctly, adding ozone treatment to a protein skimmer can make the system more effective and efficient. Ozone breaks down most waterborne pathogens, making them easier to remove, as well as making particles easier to filter out. At Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems, you'll find ozone generators specifically made for fractionators, as well as both in-sump protein skimmers and hang-on skimmers.
