The Do’s of Vape-Jet Operation
1. Review the Vape-Jet 4.0 user manual.
Before you start using your Vape-Jet fully-automatic vape cartridge filling machine, it’s important to review the user manual. This will give you a better understanding of how the machine works, and how to operate it safely and effectively.
2. Use the recommended settings.
Different cannabis extracts require different settings to achieve the best results. Make sure to use the recommended settings for each extract to ensure that you get the best possible results. Check out this comprehensive guide from our HelpDesk. It’s important to note that the recommended settings will vary based on the style of pump included in your machine.
3. Regularly clean and maintain the machine.
To keep your Vape-Jet running smoothly, it’s important to clean and maintain it regularly. This will help prevent clogs and malfunctions, as well as prevent cross-contamination between strains and oil types. All of our filling machines come with a clean in place SOP built into the software. It is fully automated, only takes 10-20 minutes and requires no disassembly.
4. Use high-quality cannabis extracts to ensure high-quality results.
The quality of the cannabis extract you use can have a big impact on the performance of your Vape-Jet fully-automatic vape cartridge filling machine. Make sure to use high-quality, consistently produced extracts to ensure the most reliable results.
5. Never let your operator fly solo.
If you encounter any issues or errors while using your Vape-Jet machine, don’t hesitate to contact Vape-Jet’s support team via the Help Desk. We can help you troubleshoot the issue and get your machine back up and running as quickly as possible.
Once you receive your new machine, you will use the Help Desk for all questions and requests moving forward. Please note that your points of contact from the sales process do not have remote machine access or the technical insight required to provide product support.
The Don’ts of Vape-Jet Operation
1. Don’t power on your new machine without Vape-Jet support.
Before you turn on your new filling machine for the first time, it’s important to schedule a remote training session with Vape-Jet product support. This will help ensure that you know how to operate the machine safely and effectively.
2. Don’t begin filling without configuration and calibration.
Before you start producing vape cartridges, it’s important to properly configure and calibrate your Vape-Jet fully-automatic vape cartridge filling machine. This will help ensure that you get the best possible results.
Initial needle and physical camera calibration will happen at installation with a remote support technician. The individual hardware configuration process includes software adjustments made to camera, height, speed, etc. This can be done during a consultation support call and saved as a configuration profile for later use.
3. Don’t underestimate the importance of heating.
To ensure the best possible results, it’s important to properly pre-heat the oil and configure the three machine heaters based on Vape-Jet recommended temperatures before initiating filling. Find our recommended heat settings in this comprehensive guide from our HelpDesk. If you want to hot swap your reservoirs to save time between batches, check out our Drop Tank reservoir pre-heating accessory.
4. Don’t physically interfere with the machine while in operation.
During the filling process, it’s crucial not to interfere with the machine. This includes not moving the hardware during dispense to correct the alignment, and not putting your hands inside the machine while in motion. If operation needs to be stopped immediately, operators can find a “stop” button on the user interface built into the front of the machine.
Bonus Don’t: Don’t use the physical emergency stop button on the front of the machine unless there is a true emergency such as evacuation due to fire.
5. Don’t forget to follow “first in, last out.”
When connecting and disconnecting the reservoir to the fluid path and Nitrogen supply, it’s important to follow the “first in, last out order of operations.” If done out of order, heated oil will leak out of the upper fluid path, through the heat box and onto the dispensing platform below. This can waste valuable oil, damage your machine, and pose a safety hazard to operators.
- Place Reservoir in Holder
- Connect Fluid Path to Reservoir
- Connect Power Cable
- Connect Nitrogen Line
- Disconnect Nitrogen Pressure
- Toggle Reservoir Heater Off
- Disconnect CPC Power Adapter
- Disconnect Fluid Path
- Remove Reservoir from Holder
