Slim Series: Quartz Heat Retainer (individual part)

(2 reviews) Write a Review

Quartz Heat Retainer keeps heat away from the joint and in the dish where it belongs!

Quartz is an excellent insulator, and using it to support our heating elements or space parts, well we wish we thought of it years ago.

Made of high purity optical quartz with optical grade polish (unpolished edges for texture).

  • Inner Diameter: 10mm
  • Outter Diameter: 28mm
  • Thickness: 5mm or 2mm 

5mm Thickness is reccomended for Halo & Nimbus Dish and Slim Series Assembly.

Using these as a buffer between Heaters and Sapphire Dish can additionally help mitigate the risk of thermal shock.

    This quartz heat retainer is amazing, I'm using it with the SiC halo and SiC pearls. I've had it a few days and I've already turned my nail down 30 degrees, quite a significant effect I would say! It really does seem to project the coil's heat back up to the dish, or something along those lines, causing way less of a drop in temperature during the dab. Should've got it way sooner!

    Quartz heat retainer 5mm

    I bought the Quartz 5mm heat retainer to pair with the Sic nimbus and was greatly impressed. We noticed the dish retained the temperature for longer periods and helped transfer heat back to the dish faster after taking a massive dab. This replaces the thin titanium tension nut that holds the heating coil to the bottom of the dish. I preferred the thicker retainer to retain extra heat. I was skeptical at first but I’m glad I added this to my purchase. I can take way bigger dabs and have no trouble maintaining the heat.
