  • Vertex Omega 180 Protein Skimmer


At the heart of the Omega 180i, rests a modified Sicce SK-1000 with enlarged Needle Wheel accompanied by a powerful neodymium magnet. Each rotor has been hand-encased with epoxy to perfection. Proportionally sized neck and signature omega transition nicely complement the increased Air draw making for a balanced skimmer. 

In addition, the base plate is milled to house a portion of the enlarged pump head hence increasing the reaction-chamber volume. Although all the features of the Omega line are present, due to lower costs associated with Syncra Motor-Blocks Vertex Omega 180i is a perfect marriage of value, form and function.
