In recent years more and more technology has entered the world of aquariums. The inhabitants are to be provided with the best possible environment to feel comfortable and have a long life expectancy. Controlled electronic systems regulate temperatures, currents, feeding, lighting and water quality.
ATHEX delivers components for filter technology and for lighting to well-known manufacturers. Especially in seawater environments protein skimmers are required, for which we deliver PMMA tube components or drawing parts. In order to prepare water in- and outlets in the tube housing, circular holes must be precisely cut into the tube, which we can achieve with a 5-axis machining center. By applying further processing steps like milling or gluing, ATHEX manufactures the skimmer components ready to install.
In lighting the LED-technology has entered the aquariums as well. Adapted light can be provided by means of light/dark or colour control. For optimal growth of the plants in the aquariums light-wavelength variations are increasingly possible, even down into the UV-range. To cover the corresponding LED-trays ATHEX supplies cover profiles made of PMMA or PC.
For pond pumping applications we supply a UV-light blocking tube, which acts as housing for a strong UV-light, eleminating algae in the incoming water.
