SuperVolcano HeaterBlock & Sock
Loading product options...
Our SuperVolcano block is designed to meet your high-speed printing needs, providing up to 11x times the volumetric flow rate of our V6 HotEnd. The SuperVolcano is a fully-fledged member of the E3D ecosystem and can be used with our V6, Hemera and Kraken HeatBreaks, as well as our Lite6.
SuperVolcano is a nickel-plated copper block ensuring safe operation with its 80W heater. Made from a special high-temperature copper-alloy with a softening point of well above 500°C, and much-increased thermal conductivity these copper blocks are perfect for high-temperature applications while working perfectly with everyday filaments.
In addition to high-temperature performance, these blocks have advanced nickel-based plating which considerably reduces the adhesion of plastic to the block. This is particularly important at temperatures above 300°C where a silicone sock can't be used.
To aid the thermal performance of the SuperVolcano a piece of high-temperature fibreglass sleeving replaces our normal sock. This sleeving can withstand continuous operating temperatures of 260°C. The sleeving can be used for higher temperatures, however, the lifespan of the socks will be significantly reduced.
Health and Safety:
Handling of the HotEnd must only be carried out with the printer switched off and the power cord unplugged from the socket. The SuperVolcano block will remain hot for longer than other HotEnds so allow extra time for the system to cool down. The SuperVolcano sock is made from glass fibre coated with silicone rubber, when handling this, protective clothing must be worn. The full health and safety warning can be found in the datasheet and must be adhered to.
