Mesh screens and seals for vaporizers are consumable parts that wear out over time and require replacement. Most manufacturers offer spare chamber screens, mouthpiece screens, and seals.
Most mesh screens are made of stainless steel and are usually placed at the bottom of the chamber and in the mouthpiece. The screens are designed to limit or prevent particles of herb from entering unwanted areas. Dirty screens impede the free flow of air, thus hindering vaporization and significantly reducing the efficiency of heating the herb during inhalation. Most screens can be cleaned using isopropyl alcohol (ISO, IPA) or dedicated vape cleaners.
Seals, also known as O-rings, are components made of various synthetic materials and are designed to provide airtightness during the vaporization process. Seals are placed in various parts of the vaporizer, but usually in the vicinity of the mouthpiece, chamber, or cover to ensure airtight connections between these elements. High-quality seals are essential for the effectiveness of vaporization and maintaining the proper pressure and airflow.
Mesh screens and seals are often available as replacement parts or additional accessories for specific vaporizer models. Regular maintenance and replacement of worn or damaged screens and seals can significantly impact the efficiency, flavor, and vapor quality during vaporization. It is important to choose screens and seals that are suitable for the specific vaporizer model to ensure a perfect fit and effectiveness.
