EASY CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS FOR SAI TOP AIRFLOW ATOMIZER:
- The Sai Top Airflow Atomizer is a breeze to clean compared to standard wrapped kanthal or SS coils. First, use a pipette or CAREFULLY drop a few drops of filtered water into the Ti bucket and pulse the fire button for consecutive 2 second bursts about 5 times. You should see the loosened residue bubbling around in the simmering water. Dump the water into a trash can and “glob mop” the excess debris or repeat with more water and dumping. If the build-up is still somewhat liquid, it is usually best to start by applying heat using the fire button for a few seconds, then mop up what you can with a q-tip. Another handy little cheap mop I found are the white cotton rolling filters normally meant for rolling tobacco. They are about 1 cent per filter and very handy since they soak up quite a bit more residue than a q-tip. This will allow the water to penetrate easier and will make things quicker, but is not completely necessary. If you have really stubborn build-up you may need to pipette some ISO in the bucket and let sit for some hours to loosen. This combined with scraping (with a “softer” metal than Ti such as a steel dabber tool) is sure to get your bucket back in working order– if not looking almost brand new again! Replacement Ti buckets are available so you can rotate in between 2-4 and keep them all like-new. I also designed a small stand which is handy to hold the spare atomizers, since they won’t stand up straight on their own. I usually set mine on the stand and drop a few drops of ISO in to soak for a number of hours before going at it with a swabber.
