This will be a complete guide on how to clean your Volcano vaporizer. You will need a couple of dishes for soapy water and ISO. I recommend 91% ISO. You will also need some paper towels, some sort of pick tool, and about 10-15 minutes.
UPDATE: This video is outdated and the Solid Valve is no longer being sold. But it’s still relevant if you have an old Volcano with the Solid Valve filling chamber. I’ll be working on a new cleaning video for the Easy Valve filling chamber and will post a link to it here when I’m finished up.
Storz and Bickel also released a couple of new/updated versions of the Volcano Vaporizer including the new Volcano Hybrid and the 24k Gold Plated Volcano Classic which was released for the 20-year anniversary.
The new Volcano Hybrid is completely digital with quicker heat-ups, faster fill times, Bluetooth, and last but not least, an added whip option. The Gold Volcano Classic is the same thing as the Volcano Classic we all know and love but shiny and gooooooolllllldddd. I looooveeeee gooooolllldddddd.
How to Clean the Volcano Vaporizer:
It’s really not to hard to clean the Volcano and you very rarely actually have to clean the Volcano. Overall the Easy Valve is the easier valve system to deal with in my opinion. It’s a lot easier to just throw out a bag and grab a new one. The Solid Valve is a great system as well because it allows you to customize your balloon sizes but overall it takes more time to clean.

Introduction:Hey guys Buzz here from vaporizerwizard.com. Today we’re going to be going over how to clean the volcano vaporizer. Some of the things you’re going to need is a sharp metal object like this, this is a dentist pick. You can also get a flat head screwdriver, that works well too. You will also need a jar, something with a lid, the alcohol is going to go in here so you’re going to be shaking it up. A mason jar also works really well for this. You’re also going to want a cup or a dish of soapy water and the highest percentage isopropyl alcohol you can find.
Ok so the first thing we’re going to start with is the filling chamber. We’re going to remove the filling chamber insert and set that to the side for now. The next piece is this yellow o-ring, set that to the side. And then also this blue o-ring on the bottom. Now be careful when taking this out, you want to be really gentle with it and set that to the side as well. Now I’ve had my Volcano for about four years and about two years in due to the neglect of cleaning, this silver piece on the inside is actually stuck to the plastic. So normally what you would do, is this silver piece will screw out. you’ll put the silver in the alcohol and the plastic will go in the soapy water. But for now I’m just going to put this in the soapy water.Second we’re going to take apart this mouthpiece. The top will pop off there, and the silver will pop out. Now the silver will go into the alcohol and the plastic will go into the soap.
Next I’m going to take off the bag. Ok we’re going to use a paper towel for this part. First you’re going to push in and on the opposite side, it releases it up, unscrew the top piece. We’re going to set this off to the side and this blue o-ring comes off as well and this is the only o-ring that you will need to put in the soapy water because it gets pretty filthy. This back end comes off here, both of these are going to go in the alcohol and then what we’re going to use the paper towel for is just for a little bit of alcohol on here to clean this ring here. This lip. And then you’re going to set this in the soap as well.
Alright the next thing we’re going to do is clean this right here. Now I’m going to use my dentist pick and try and go all the way around, try and get as much off and keep it on the pick as possible. I recommend saving this and I’m going to show you something cool that you can do with it later on in the video.Ok so here’s what I got off the pick from the last part. The next thing we’re going to do is take apart the filling chamber insert. Now if you notice, there is a nut right on top there. You’re just going to squeeze it and turn, and its already off, there we go and this is going to go into the alcohol. Now be careful when you take this screen off because there is a very tiny washer on the other side. This is also going to go in the alcohol. Ok and that’s going to go in the alcohol as well. Now this will come off. We’re going to clean this. Ok and then this is going to go in the alcohol. Same with this bottom piece we’re going to clean this as well. Try and get some of this off. This goes in the alcohol along with this here as well. So I’m just trying to get as much of this off on the paper as I can. It’s pretty sticky. Move this off to the side here.
The next part we’re going to fill this with alcohol. I recommend filling it to the highest part so you can get all the pieces submerged in there. Actually, let me take this cap off. Might have been a little bit too high there but that’ll work. Now the other thing that I like to do too is throw a little bit of salt in here. It helps break up some of the gunk that’s left on the pieces in there. That should do it, you don’t need to put that much in there. Now I’ll let it sit for a couple minutes and then I’ll shake it up for a couple minutes. What we’re going to do now is take these pieces and rinse them out with some more soap and water and then we’re going to come back and show you the next step.
Alright I’m back, everything is rinsed off and dried. We’re going to go ahead and start with this piece, putting everything back together. Ok next we’re going to put together the filling chamber insert. Then this will go back in the filling chamber. The blue o-ring goes in the bottom and the yellow on the outside. Now the mouthpiece and lastly we can attach the bag. Ok well now we’ve taken apart, cleaned the volcano and put it back together. And now I’ll show you what we can do with this. So I think I found the best way to use this. I like to throw it in my favorite pen vape which right now is the atmos raw junior. Just grab a little bit here, throw it in the chamber. Now this works perfect for me, I’d love to hear if you guys have been doing this or if anything else works for you. If you guys have any other suggestions, feel free to let me know.
