Filling a Ceramic Cell Cartridge is very simple and will provide great results when performed properly. Follow this guide to get the job done right every time.
You first want to be sure that your fill material is of the proper viscosity for the intake holes (aperture) of your Ceramic Cell Cartridge. Large intake holes (2.0mm) are meant for thick fill material while small (1.2mm) intake holes are meant for thin fill material. Using improper size intake holes for your fill material viscosity can cause the material to leak out of the cartridge.
Another cause of leaking is the temperature of your oil when filling. Your material may be thick while at room temperature but with added heat becomes thin. Do not fill cartridges with large (2.0mm) 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 glass tank. Do not attempt to fill material in the center post.
Screw or press the cap onto the cartridge immediately after filling. If you are filling multiple cartridges, screw (or press) the caps on right after they are filled.
Ceramic Cell 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.
