Product Information

KALKSTAR Kalkwasser stirrer Magnetic stir bar design with digital control panel. 1/4 inch inlet and outlet ports. Uses 5.5 watts max.

The KalkStar has a control panel with a digital display, four mode indicator LEDs and four soft touch menu buttons. Three operational parameters that are fully controllable from the soft touch menu buttons are speed (revolutions per minute), interval (hours) and duration (minutes). Speed is the speed at which the magnetic stir bar is rotating in the reaction chamber. The speed setting can be adjusted from 100 to 2000 rpm. Interval is the time period in hours that the KalkStar pauses between cycles. The interval can be set from 1 to 24 hours. A 0 hour setting for the interval can also be selected which will allow the KalkStar to complete the current program or duration and then return to the PAUSE mode without restarting the program. The duration is the time in minutes that the KalkStar will operate before pausing for the selected interval time. The duration can be adjusted from 1 to 60 minutes.

In overview, the Kalkstar can be programmed to operate for a duration between 1 and 60 minutes. The KalkStar will pause for the selected interval time period and restart the program for the selected duration again and again until the unit is paused or the unit is reprogrammed. In the event of power outage, the default program will be restored. The default program is 1600 rpm with a 15 minute operational duration and a 4 hour interval.

Digital Display
The current selected parameter is displayed on the screen. As the menu buttons are pressed to toggle through the different parameters, they will be displayed on the screen. Mode Indicator LEDs, Located adjacent to the display screen, the LEDs will indicate which parameter is currently being displayed on the screen. The three parameters are speed (rpm), interval (hours) and duration (minutes). A pause LED will indicate if the unit is in PAUSE mode. Due to the size of the display screen the speed (rpm) is displayed divided by 100, i.e. if the display indicates 12 for speed, the actual KalkStar rpm is 1200.

Soft Touch Menu Buttons:
Control of the KalkStar is accomplished with four menu buttons located to the right of the LED indicators. From left to right, the STOP button (small square in the center) will toggle through the different operation parameters (speed, duration and interval) while in PROGRAMMING mode. The UP and DOWN menu buttons toggle the display value and LED indicator between the speed, duration, and interval parameters. The UP and DOWN menu buttons will also increase or decrease the three operational parameters (speed, duration and interval) while in PROGRAMMING mode. The PAUSE button will pause the operation of the KalkStar unit. The PAUSE button will also exit PROGRAMMING mode and return the KalkStar to normal operation if in PROGRAMMING mode.

    Works well in-line with my auto top-off, however the acrylic probe plug mysteriously blew out yesterday resulting in a flooded stand and apartment.

    This kalkwasser reactor works great. It's a little more expensive than pump-powered stirrers but it's worth the price. So far in my sps dominant reef tank it's managed to maintain my calcium level at 450 and my ph stays stable at 8.3. I'm using this unit as a stand alone, without a calcium reactor. I would definitely recommend this product.
