How to Clean a PAX 2: Step by Step Guide
The PAX 2 portable vaporizer ’s streamlined design is not just about aesthetics — it makes the vaporizer easy to clean and maintain as well.
You won’t need many materials or any specialized equipment to clean your PAX 2, but even before you sit down to clean your device, it’s important to review exactly what you need. Here, we’ll take you through how to prepare your PAX 2 for cleaning and take you through the process step by step.
What’s in the Maintenance Kit?
The PAX 2 comes with the supplies needed to clean it. Included in your maintenance kit is also a bundle of pipe cleaners for cleaning the vapor path and the oven, as well as a small bottle of isopropyl alcohol.
Step 1: Preparing your PAX 2 for cleaning
The first step to cleaning your PAX 2 is to take apart any components which can be removed. This means you’ll be taking off the mouthpiece at the top and the oven lid at the bottom; the oven screen is removed during cleaning.
Before starting the cleaning process, be sure that the device is completely cool. Wait several minutes after using your device before removing the oven lid. Once the oven lid is removed, use the pipe cleaner or PAX multi-tool to remove any material inside the oven. Remove the mouthpiece by pulling up on it; the piece will come right off.
Step 2: Gather necessary cleaning materials
In addition to the pipe cleaners and the alcohol in your maintenance kit, you’ll also want to have cotton swabs and a small bowl or container on hand. If you ever run out of any of your cleaning supplies, these materials can be purchased at your local grocery store or pharmacy. The cotton swabs will be used to clean the inside of the oven and the mouthpiece area. The small bowl or container will be used to soak the oven screen or to hold additional isopropyl alcohol.
Step 3: Get to cleaning!
Begin cleaning your PAX 2 by removing the mouthpiece. Then, dip one of the included pipe cleaners in the isopropyl alcohol and inserting it into the vapor pathway, found inside the mouthpiece area. By “flossing” this pipe cleaner up and down through the vapor path, you’ll loosen any resistance-causing debris. This process will also pop out the oven screen from the bottom of the PAX 2.
Once the oven screen is removed, place your mouthpiece and oven screen into your isopropyl alcohol bowl. Be sure to submerge your oven screen and not your oven lid. Never submerge the oven lid in any liquid, including isopropyl alcohol.
After you finish working with pipe cleaners, move onto cotton swabs. As with the pipe cleaner, submerge your cotton swab in isopropyl alcohol. Then, scrub the cotton swab along the inside of your PAX 2’s oven and the top of your device. You may need to use more than a few cotton swabs for a thorough cleaning, depending on how long the personal vaporizer has gone without a cleaning.
Cotton swabs can also be used for cleaning the PAX 2 mouthpiece. Submerging the mouthpiece in isopropyl alcohol is surely a vital step, but a cotton swab rub along all surfaces of the mouthpiece and around the temperature button, located underneath the mouthpiece, can help keep your vape in tip-top shape.
Step 4: Wrap up your cleaning session
To wrap up your PAX 2 cleaning session, make sure that both your mouthpiece and oven screen are completely dry. Return the oven screen to the oven by laying one end furthest from the vapor pathway and gently laying in the screen the rest of the way. Press firmly in the center with a cotton swab to secure it back into place. The oven screen should be slightly bowed and will fit snugly and securely. Finally, reinsert your oven lid and mouthpiece, and your PAX 2 will be ready to use once again.
How often should PAX 2 be cleaned?
To keep your PAX 2 in top shape and performing at its best, it is recommended to clean it every few sessions. This regular maintenance is a crucial component to reducing draw resistance, preserving flavor, and ensuring top performance with each session. With the proper care, you’ll enjoy many delightful sessions with your PAX 2.
