The Volcano Hybrid Issue

A recent issue with the Volcano Hybrid has come to attention and we thought it was best to share this information as soon as possible.

The issue: The filling chamber of the volcano hybrid has an aluminum chamber which connects to an aluminum ring on top of the vaporizer. When these two parts rub together it creates a small amount of aluminum dust.

S&B has recently updated their cleaning instructions to address this issue. Here is what their new user manual states:

“Using a damp cloth, not dripping wet and soaked only in water, gently wipe the surface of the Heating element. This will remove leftover residue, dust or particles which could potentially enter the airstream. Clean The Heating element like this before every use

Do not over-tighten the filling chamber

We are still learning about this issue and what can be done to resolve it in a more permanent manner. This information will be posted on our blog soon along with any updates we receive from Storz and Bickel.

Product safety is an extremely important topic which is why we are starting this conversation now. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask. Our team will be around to answer any questions as best as we can.


We have to give a special thanks to Troy from 420vapezone for bringing this to the public

We also have to thank the distributors working with us behind the scenes to make sure this issue is addressed. Stay tuned we will be back with more info soon.
