Our Protein Skimmers model “Helgoland” have been designed for water flowrates ranging from 3 m³/hr up to 660 m³/hr. The customer can choose from which material each skimmer shall be produced, depending on the size and form of application (indoor or outdoor):
Typically skimmers with a diameter of 600 mm and more are made of polypropylene. This high-quality, seawater resistant material is ideal for indoor applications.
For outdoor applications, skimmers of 600 mm or greater diameter can be manufactured of polyethylene. This high-quality material is UV resistant as well as seawater-resistant.
For applications that must withstand extreme conditions, such as those on wellboats, skimmers are custom-made of steel. Steel skimmers are provided with a seawater-resistant coating.
