Staroma is the Stainless Steel (SS316) version of Taroma 2.0. It is mainly made for customers who are allergic to Titanium, and for those who prefers SS316
Staroma is identical to Taroma 2.0 in almost every way. However due to SS316 as a material, Staroma is much heavier than Taroma 2.0.
Just like the latest version of Taroma 2.0, Staroma also has an added ledge, to fit a 14mm screen. This will allow you to fill the Gemstone Chamber right to the end of the joint, or use a screen to fill up to Taroma OG levels (before the joint). If you wish to fill to the end of the joint, one pack of rubies (165pcs) may not be enough. If you do not have spare gemstones, do consider purchasing an extra pack Here
Staroma checks all boxes with full marks, except for perhaps the flavor/aroma department. Perfect for cloud chasers and heavy hitters, who values durability and performance highly. Fussy or sensitive aroma chasers may prefer Qaroma or Ceroma instead. A combination of both is considered best of both worlds.
Staroma has a raised step in its design, to better stabilize and provide better coil contact. As such, it is only compatible with 20mm, 5 wraps, clockwise coils. Staroma also has a slightly shorter joint length, to take advantage of its massive power, and to provide a slightly larger bowl capacity. Staroma was designed with heavy hitters in mind.
The built in Gemstone Chamber acts as airflow control, and for better heat retention/recovery due to increased total mass. You can add or mix Aroma Pearls and/or pillars of different color and sizes, for endless combinations and possibilities. We only offer 3mm Ruby Aroma Pearls at the moment. Staroma is not designed to be used with an empty Gemstone Chamber. Do not attempt to overfill the Gemstone Chamber.
The Staroma housing is designed to fit an industry standard 20mm Heater Coil. These are common heater coils used in household appliances such as coffee machines etc. This is then plugged into the PID Controller. Together with the Qaromashop Adapter Bowl, Aroma Pearls, Stand and Coil Handle, your Taroma DIY Kit is now complete and ready for use.
Do not modify or use incompatible coils on Staroma. For reference, our Coil Pinout is:
Coil (Male 5 pin XLR connector) PIN 1 = TC-, PIN 2 = TC+, PIN 3 = GND, PIN 4 = AC-, PIN 5 = AC+
Note: When resting the heater for a long time, the Staroma Stand will feel like touching a bowl of hot soup. However, it is safe to touch for a few seconds.
The applications for Staroma are endless. Anyone who requires small scale, ultra clean convection heating, at precise temperatures will benefit from the Staroma. Due to its standard laboratory glass sizes, modifying the Taroma to suit your needs is made very easy. There are truly no fixed way to use the Staroma.
