What are the dimensions of the Kamoer FX-STP?
Dimensions: 5.25" x 3.25" x 5"
How do you calibrate the Kamoer FX-STP and how often?
You should always calibrate the pump upon initial setup, when replacing the dosing head/tubing, or if it has been in operation for longer than 3 months. This will ensure the accurate delivery of your fluids.
Calibration is easy and can be done using the onboard controls or using the Kamoer app on your smartphone. You will need to have a cup of RO/DI water and a graduated cylinder to complete calibration. Be sure the graduated cylinder it's large enough to hold the amount of fluid you plan to deliver per minute.
How to calibrate Kamoer FX-STP using the Kamoer App:
- Select Settings > Calibration
- Select the speed or continue with preset speed
- Prime the pump
- Select the length of time for calibration - 60 seconds is best
- Place output tubing into the cylinder
- Select start/stop and the pump will fill the cylinder
- Once it's done, enter the amount of fluid delivered into the app.
When should I replace the tubing?
The tubing on the dosing head is rated for 2,000 hours of continuous use which is roughly 3 months. If you're using it at lower flow rates it will last longer. To ensure accuracy, it's best to swap it out no less than every 4 months.
Is the app easy to use?
Yes, the app makes the pump extremely easy to set up and calibrate. The app displays the pump's flow rate, pump speed, and the amount of run time on your pump head tubing. You can change the pump flow rate using the app or using the on-board control knob. *The FX-STP is designed for ONLY continuous duty operation and cannot be scheduled. For scheduled dosing, see the Kamoer x1 Micropump.
Can I use push-connect or quick-disconnect fittings with this pump?
Yes, you can adapt the dosing pump to accept rigid RO tubing using quick-disconnect fittings. You will need the following additional components:
Using the existing 1/8" to 1/4" tubing adapters, simply attach the stem adapters to a short length of 1/4" tubing then attach the unions to the stem adapters and you're pump is ready to accept RO tubing.
