How Long Does It Take To Heat Up A Dab Rig
One common question users have regardingdabbing rigs is how long it takes to heat up. The answer is generally 45 seconds to a minute. However, there are multiple factors one needs to consider.
Different types of bongs take specific amounts of time to heat since they all retain heat differently. Additionally, the amount of time you want to heat your nail can vary based on what temperature you like taking dabs at.
Below are the recommended heating and cool-down times for thebest dab nails.
Heat Dabnail and Cool Down
For the standard quartz banger nail, heat it for around 30 seconds to a minute, or until the nail starts glowing. After heating it, allow anywhere from 15 seconds to a minute for it to cool down. If you have a concentrate that is high in terpenes and flavorful, you’re going to want to wait a full minute. However, if flavor isn’t too important and you want big clouds, 15 seconds is all you need.
Titanium nails retain heat quicker than quartz bangers. Heating can take as fast as 20 seconds, depending on the strength of your torch. Once heated, users will only need to wait about 20 seconds before dabbing. It’s important to heat it evenly, though titanium is more durable than quartz.
Ceramic nails can vary in thickness, but the general amount of time to heat one up is 40 seconds with a large propane heating device and a minute and a half to two minutes for smaller butane torches. Ceramic breaks easily, so it is very crucial that users move the torch around to avoid cracking.
The process of heating a dab nail has a learning curve to it. You can learn a lot through trial and error. Eventually, it’ll become second nature to you, as you learn what type of nail and what dab temperature is perfect for you.
