Generation 3 PLS-100 (Space Saving) Pipeless Protein Skimmer stands at 19” and packs a whole lot of power in its compact structure. Its current footprint is 40% smaller, made possible by extracting all wedge pipes, ball and gate valves, and other bulky external flow control mechanisms. The PLS-100 uses the TIA-1150 skimmer pump, which boosts its pump rate to 70 - 100 gallons (based on livestock volume respectively). Unlike traditional protein skimmers, the new PLS-100 utilizes its own structure to regulate foaming levels and pressure, which allows for an exceptionally low friction surface between the skimmer base and top. The Generation 3 PLS-100 is small in size, but large on performance, including the same pump and flexi-plastic system of the TIA-1150 Conic protein skimmer.
