What’s the THC cartridge inlet hole?
An inlet hole, also known as an oil intake hole, is a small opening on a THC cartridge that allows the oil inside the cartridge to be absorbed by the heating coil.
This process is known as wicking and it is crucial for ensuring that the THC oil is heated evenly and vaporized properly.
Where is the THC cartridge inlet hole?
The inlet hole is typically located near the bottom of the cartridge and is usually small in size, measuring about 1-2mm in diameter.
How many inlet holes are in the THC cartridge?
THC cartridges are more common with 2 holes, 4 holes, 5 holes, or 6 holes.
More oil inlet holes and larger areas are better?
The number and area of the oil inlet holes are very important, but not the more the number, the better, nor the larger the area, the better.
The size and the number of the inlet hole are important, as they can affect the performance of the cartridge.
If the hole area is too small, and the hole is less, the oil may not be able to flow into the coil fast enough and the user may experience a “dry hit.”
If the hole area is too large, and the hole is too much, the oil may flow too quickly and cause leakage. It is important to use a cartridge with the right size inlet hole for the best performance.
What does the oil inlet hole affect?
- User experience
In addition to its role in the performance of the cartridge, the inlet hole also plays a role in the overall user experience. A properly functioning inlet hole will ensure that the user is able to inhale a consistent flow of vapor, providing a smooth and satisfying experience. On the other hand, if the inlet hole is not functioning correctly, the user may experience difficulty inhaling or a lack of vapor production.
- Type of the oil
It is also important to note that the inlet hole can be affected by the type of oil used in the cartridge. Some oils are thicker and more viscous than others, which can make it more difficult for them to flow through the inlet hole and into the coil. This can also affect the performance of the cartridge and the user experience. It is recommended to use oils that are specifically designed for use in THC cartridges, as they are formulated to work well with the inlet hole and heating coil.
- Preserve the oil in the cartridge
In addition, it’s worth mentioning that the inlet hole is also responsible for the preservation of the oil inside the cartridge. This is because the oil will be exposed to air, which can cause the oil to degrade over time. The inlet hole is designed to be small enough to prevent too much air from entering the cartridge, while still allowing enough airflow to keep the oil fresh.
The inlet hole on a THC cartridge is an important component that plays a role in the performance, user experience, and preservation of the oil inside the cartridge. It is important to use a cartridge with the right size inlet hole and oil specifically designed for use in THC cartridges to ensure the best possible performance and experience.
RELEAFY’s current THC cartridge has 4 different sizes of inlet holes: 1.2mm (diameter), 1.5mm, 2.0mm, and 2.5mm; the number of oil inlet holes is 2 and 4.
These can also be customized according to the characteristics of the oil and your needs. Welcome to contact us to bring your idea to life.
