This kit measures total (NH3 and NH4+) and free ammonia (NH3 only) down to less than 0.05 mg/L and is virtually interference free in marine and fresh water.
Free ammonia is the toxic form of ammonia (vs. ionized Ammonia NH4+ which is non-toxic) and thus it is much more important to keep an eye on the level of free ammonia in your system.
This kit is based on the same gas exchange technology that is used in the Ammonia Alert and thus is the only kit on the market that can read levels of free ammonia while using ammonia removal products such as Prime, AmGuard and any similar competing products.
The other kits (salicylate or Nessler based) determine the total ammonia by raising the pH of the test solution to 12 or greater. At this high pH all ammonia removal products will breakdown and rerelease the ammonia, thus giving you a false ammonia reading.
The Comline® DOC Skimmer 9004 DC is designed for use in seawater from 60 to 300 liters (15 to 79 Gal). It operates according to the TUNZE® flash skimming principle and acquires the water through an efficient surface suction with a surface film removal, and can therefore also be used as a "stand-alone" solution in the aquarium. The TUNZE® Foamer generates large volumes of fine air bubbles with a diameter of between .1 and .3 mm (.004 - .012 in.) and is especially quiet during operation.
The Comline® DOC Skimmer with a magnet holder for glass up to a thickness of 12 mm (1/2") is supplied installation-ready.
Air flow regulation and silencer
for an exceptionally quiet
Simple, quiet and effective - these are the current demands towards aquarium components. That is precisely what distinguishes the small Comline® DOC Skimmer 9001 DC - a true "plug and play" skimmer for small seawater aquariums with 20 to 146 liters (5.3 to 37 USgal.). There is no complicated setting or regular adjustment required for the operation. A simple installation into a corner of the aquarium is sufficient and it will work autonomously.
