Skimmer Name: Deltec MC 500 Skimmer Placement: Internal in sump or inside the aquarium Dimensions L X W X H in mm: 210 X 90 X 530 Power consumption: 10 watt Airflow 400 Lr/hr. For tank size: High Stocking 450 Lt / Normal Stocking 650 Lt Minumum water level: 125mm
The body of the unit sits 80mm out of the water plus the height of the collection cup.
The Deltec MC500 Internal Skimmer is the ideal solution when you want to keep everything inside the aquarium or as a compact sump skimmer.
The MC500 is now fitted with a full size pinwheel and generates 350-400 lts of air at the pump like the TS1250.
Tank mounted Installation.
The MC500 fits tidily inside the aquarium against either the back or side wall and normally can be fitted using the bracket supplied, (either clear front face or black back face forwards). As long as the water level does not exceed the maximum shown on the body then the unit will operate.
The MC500 will not fit easily on the new Vision 450 and for this tank we recommend the MCE600 skimmer with the return flowing into the corner filter box.
Sump Mounted Installation
The skimmer can be used in any sump as long as the water depth is greater than 125mm and does not exceed the max level shown on the body. An adjustable weir plate is provided which raises the water level to the correct height for any depth of water.
Can be used either in a sump or inside an Aquarium.
Minimum water level when used within a sump is 125mm.
The skimmer does not require any form of additional feed pump.
