New: VOLCANO DIGIT and EASY VALVE are available now
We are pleased to have the opportunity of introducing our new products to you, the VOLCANO DIGIT and the EASY VALVE.
The digital, electronically controlled VOLCANO DIGIT Vaporizer is the new reference among Vaporizers with regard to precision and quality.
Besides the precise temperature control and the extended temperature range (40°C-230°C/104°F-446°F), consistent attention was paid to high operating comfort, so the device is equipped with an extra large LED display as well as an automatic switch off.
While developing the EASY VALVE, it was our task to fulfill our customers' wishes and needs. Therefore, the highest degree of operator convenience was combined with minimum maintenance requirements for the EASY VALVE - with the expedient result of being able to offer our customers an optimized Valve System, which makes using the VOLCANO Vaporization System even easier.

VOLCANO Vaporization System - Solid craftsmanship built to last for intensive use.
The VOLCANO CLASSIC Vaporization System has set the standard in the vaporization industry for the past 5 years now. The decisive criterion that guarantees the VOLCANO's long life span is the uncompromising selection of material and the high quality of workmanship. Alongside the VOLCANO's durability, is its user friendliness, the maximum safety for the user and the extraordinary efficiency and cost effectiveness.
We are convinced about this quality:
For the 5 year anniversary of the VOLCANO CLASSIC Vaporizer, STORZ & BICKEL will continue to extend the warranty throughout the entire year of 2006. For our 2006, 5 year anniversary we will repair all warranty issues including the VOLCANO CLASSIC Vaporizers where the 3 year warranty has expired. Please contact us for more information.

The VOLCANO Vaporization System will now include a high quality Herb Mill.
The Herb Mill, with its extra sharp "teeth" will simplify the preparation of the plant material as well as improve the cost effectiveness of the VOLCANO Vaporization System because the finer the material is ground, the larger the surface area becomes and the more aromas and fragrances will be released.
An additional benefit: The smaller plant material can be stirred better before a renewed Balloon Filling. Simply take the material out of the Filling Chamber before reusing it, stir it and refill it, thereby refreshing and enlarging the surface of the already hot air streamed through materials; an important factor for the optimized use of herbs and their aromas and fragrances.
