NYOS Quantum is characterised by high skimming performance as a result of the large amount of air in combination with and optimum air-water mixture.


The new NYOS Hybrid Wheel:

The heart of every skimmer is its propulsion. That is why NYOS have developed a new high-performance drive for the Quantum: the Hybrid Wheel. This especially precisely manufactured impeller, built with super light 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 at the same time low energy consumption.


NYOS Clear-View Reactor:

The hybrid wheel needs a pump chamber that is specially adapted to it. That is why NYOS have developed the NYOS Clear-View Reactor. The Clear-View Reactor is a transparent, performance-optimised 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!


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 have 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.


Optimised, 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.
