I just got this press release from GHL, and wanted to share it with all of you GHL fans that have been eagerly waiting.

On August 25, 2017 at MACNA New Orleans, GHL Advanced Technology GmbH unveiled the KH Director, an automated Alkalinity monitoring and control device.
Over the course of the 3-day MACNA event, the KH Director was put on display for all to see, and included demonstrations that featured run-throughs. Visitors to the booth had the opportunity to get a first-hand look of the product before its Q4 2017 release.

GHL is proud to announce that on December 11, 2017, the KH Director will officially begin shipping worldwide.

About GHL KH Director

KH Director is the result of more than 2 years of research and development in the automated Alkalinity monitoring and control. Featuring a patent pending design, KHD utilizes lab-grade test standards to provide precise results every time. The KHD is designed to provide aquarium hobbyists and professionals with a safe and reliable Alkalinity control product which presents great value, functionality, and practicality.

KH Director Requirements

In order to operate the KH Director, users will need to have at least 3 available dosing pump motors. KH Director offers users the flexibility to run the device in one of two ways.

How it works

KH Director uses a modified pH probe to provide KH values. In terms of the KH test process, the 3 blue adapters on the KHD each connect to an available GHL Doser 2 or 2.1 dosing unit. One pump is used to feed tank water into the KHD, and the second pump feeds the KHD with reagent fluid. The third pump extracts the test sample and used reagent fluid after a completed test, then dispenses it into a waste bin. As tests occur, the 3 pumps automatically perform their assigned tasks and report the results onto a viewable data logging chart. This data is then viewable on myGHL, ProfiLux Touch, ProfiLux display, and additional external display unit.
