ABOUT THE VOLCANO CLASSIC VAPORIZER
The Volcano Classic from German manufacturer Storz & Bickel has been the most popular forced-air desktop vaporizer on the market since its release over a decade ago. Easily the most recognizable vaporizer in its class, the Volcano Classic’s iconic design and unparalleled functionality have made it a must-have for any vaporizer enthusiast. The Volcano Classic Vaporizer, through its patented technology, removes toxins and other harmful byproducts (i.e., tars and other carcinogens) through a vaporizing process which intensifies the effects of the active ingredients released through the vapor by approximately 75 percent. The German hand-crafted Volcano Classic Vaporizer technology which circulates air enriched with the active ingredients of the substance vaporized into a balloon through a valve, until the balloon is filled. After the balloon is inflated the valve can be completely detached and separated from the device. The contents of the balloon can then be safely and comfortably enjoyed completely independent from the vaporization process. The balloon allows for vapor storage for up to 8 hours. Its unique features and design make it one of the most popular vaporizers.
We also stock a complete line of replacement parts for Volcano vaporizers.
Solid vs. Easy Valve:
The customer’s preferences and requirements were taken into consideration when developing the Easy Valve. The Easy Valve is characterized by very easy handling and minimal maintenance work. Attaching a new balloon to the valve is no longer required, as the Easy Valve comes as a ready to use valve balloon unit including mouthpiece. Once the Easy Valve can no longer be used, you simply replace the old with a new one. The starter set is delivered with 5 Easy Valve balloons and the appropriate filling chamber. The Easy Valve filling chamber is cleaned and re-used.
The Solid Valve is the standard valve and sold has sold in the tens of thousands. One can choose its individual balloon size as the Solid Valve Set comes with a box of 3 meters of balloon material. Using the Solid Valve, the replacement of the balloon is kind of tricky and needs some experience, but the Solid Valve provides a less expensive long-term option, as the balloon material can be bought for a reasonable price.
Frequency of Bag Replacement
The balloon should be replaced by a new balloon after cleaning the valve set in regular intervals (after 50 - 100 balloon fillings). The balloon used is the Volcano balloon. A roll with 3 meters of this product is enclosed with each Volcano, which is sufficient for 5-6 balloons. We carry both Easy Valve with bag replacements and vaporizer bags for solid valve mouthpieces. You may also use other heat-proof oven hoses or oven bags, e.g. in the U.S.A. use Reynolds oven bags Type "large". Do not use any other plastic bags or cling wraps. On the other hand, once an Easy Valve can no longer be used, you simply replace the old with a new one. By far less seldom (approx. 1x per year in everyday use) although it may be necessary to replace the filling chamber screens. Each complete set is furnished with 3 upper and 3 lower screens. That will last a long time. No other parts are subject to wear and tear.
