How To Fill G5 Cartridge

Filling a G5 Press-On Mouthpiece Cartridge is very simple and will provide great results when performed properly.


You first want to be sure that your fill material is of the proper viscosity for the intake holes of your Full Ceramic Cartridge. Large intake holes (1.8mm+) are meant for thick fill material while small (1.2mm) intake holes are meant for thin fill material. Adding terpenes may make your oil become thin. Use smaller aperture holes or a thickener blend to increase the viscosity of your oil if it is thin. Using improper size intake holes for your fill material viscosity can cause the material to leak out of the cartridge. If 1.2mm aperture holes are required for your oil, contact us for a custom quote.


Another cause of leaking is the temperature of your material when filling. Your material may be thick while at room temperature but with added heat becomes thin. Do not fill cartridges with large (1.8mm+) intake holes with thin fill material. Start your heat setting at 120º F. Do not exceed 140º F. 


Always fill the cartridge between the center post and the clear tank. Do not attempt to fill material in the center post. 


It is recommended to use an arbor press to press the mouthpiece onto the G5 Cartridge. Adjust the arbor press to fit your size cartridge. Remove the silicone cap at the bottom of the cartridge. Ensure the cartridge is secure in place while pressing down on the press handle. This process secures the mouthpiece into place to prevent leaks. If you are filling multiple cartridges, begin capping right after they are filled. 


G5 Cartridges should be capped and then flipped upside down right after filling. Let the cartridge be upside down for 30 minutes or more after filling.
