When you are about to put the cartridge in the shopping cart, you may have these questions, “Why does this cartridge seem to be underfilled”‘ “Is the cartridge up to the capacity it states – 0.5ml or 1.0ml” “Is the price paid OK? Receive corresponding return” and so on, one of these questions may cause you to abandon the purchase of cartridges.
THC cartridges, also known as vape cartridges, are a popular way to consume cannabis. They are small, portable, and easy to use, making them a convenient option for many cannabis consumers. However, some users may notice that their THC cartridges are not full, even when they are brand new. This can be a frustrating and disappointing experience, as it means less cannabis to consume and less value for the money spent.
Headspace refers to the space at the top of a container, such as a THC cartridge. If there is too much headspace, it can make the THC cartridge appear less full than it is.
Why isn’t my cartridge full?
Usually caused by the following reasons:
- The coil material is not compatible with oil
- Cartridge design
- Cannabis oil leak
The first reason for the headspace is the coil.
The coil inside a THC cartridge can absorb some of the cannabis oil, causing the cartridge to appear less full even though it was filled. This is a common issue with vape cartridges and can be caused by a variety of factors, including the quality of the coil and the type of oil used.
When the coil inside the cartridge is made of low-quality material or it’s not compatible with the oil, it can absorb more oil than it should, resulting in less oil for consumption. Additionally, certain types of cannabis oil, such as those that are thicker or less viscous, may be more likely to be absorbed by the coil. This can make the cartridge appear less full.
Another reason for the THC cartridge not being full is the manufacturing process.
The cannabis oil used in THC cartridges is often thick and viscous, making it difficult to fill the cartridge. As a result, manufacturers may leave a small amount of headspace to make the filling process easier. Additionally, some manufacturers may fill their cartridges with less oil than others to cut costs, resulting in an appearance of less full.
It’s also possible that the cartridge is not full due to leakage.
If the cartridge is not properly sealed, the cannabis oil may leak out, causing the cartridge to appear less full. This can be caused by a variety of factors, such as a malfunctioning cartridge or a problem with the filling process.
In conclusion, the reason why a THC cartridge may appear less full is due to coil absorption, manufacturing process, and leakage. While it may be disappointing to receive a less full cartridge, it is important to understand that headspace is inevitable during production. Always make sure to purchase from reputable manufacturers and check the seal of the cartridge before using it.
The above analysis is based on the condition that the environment is constant. The cartridge may also experience temperature and pressure, resulting in a reduction in capacity.
In terms of temperature, we all know that when the temperature is higher, the viscosity of the oil will be lower, so the coil can absorb more oil, and the headspace of the cartridge will be larger. According to this principle, when many people encounter a clogged cartridge, they will use a hair dryer to heat the ink cartridge to reduce the viscosity of the oil.
In terms of pressure, the most common is the pressure brought by the distribution of products by air. As the pressure continues to change, it will also cause ink cartridges to leak.
After the above-detailed explanation, everyone should know the real reason why the oil cartridge cannot be filled, these are unavoidable problems. Therefore, many cartridge manufacturers will try to avoid the appearance of cartridge dissatisfaction through appearance design.
