How to Clean ZEUS Grinder

7

Grinders need occasional maintenance. Minimal maintenance from time to time will enable any buster to continue functioning properly. The residual buildup can become quite heavy and hamper the rotation of your unit.  Units that are made from metal or wood cannot be cleaned, as they will rust or from the solvents that are necessary to clean the residual buildup. Units made from acryl are just disposable and cannot be cleaned properly. Aircraft Grade Anodized Aluminum (AGA) Grinders, such as the ZEUS Grinder series can be cleaned very well. Therefore, we will show you today how to clean your unit in order for it to function like new.
All you need is:
1-      Rubbing alcohol
2-      Toothbrush
3-      Hot water

Zeus Bolt Grinder

Grinder
Cleaning the Bolt is actually quite simple. The main cleaning agent you will need is some ordinary rubbing alcohol. Now before you start cleaning you will want to make sure that you have emptied out the bottom chamber. The bottom compartment is where you will collect some valuable botanical residues and dust that you obviously do not want to wash out. This stuff is great to be vaporized with a G Pen Vaporizer. Once you have fully emptied out your buster you want to make sure to remove all the plastic parts as these could be damaged by the alcohol. The two plastic parts are the ring around the top compartment and the small shovel which collects your residues.
Here is how you take off the O-ring:
These parts can simply be washed with warm water. You can submerge all other parts which are aluminum in your rubbing alcohol for around 10 minutes. After the alcohol bath, simply rinse them off with hot water or in really dirty cases use a toothbrush. Let your grinder dry and… voila….your Bolt will be like new.

Zeus Vortex Grinder

Grinders
Cleaning your Vortex is pretty much the same deal as with your Bolt. All aluminum parts can be cleaned with rubbing alcohol. The only difference is that the Vortex has a transparent top compartment which is made of acryl. Do not clean this part with alcohol. This part is best cleaned with a toothbrush  and hot water. Separate the clear top from the rest of the unit (takes 5 seconds) and all the other components can be put into rubbing alcohol. Check out the video below on how to open the Grinder:

Zeus Nano Grinders

ZEUS Grinder
The Nano is the simplest of them all, not only in terms of grinding but also in terms of cleaning. All you need to do is to take off the plastic O-ring (just like you would do with the Bolt) and put the unit into rubbing alcohol. Wash it off with hot water and you are done!

  1. Good info – I like to soak my grinders in a hot cuppa milk for about 15 minutes before I do the cleaning – the milk fats absorb the resins, so you get a nice, warm cup of happy, happy, happy before you clean it.

    Thanks TV – you guys (and gals) are really great

    • there two possibilities. 1- you might have lost the bearing. 2- this is the more likely scenario in which (like me once) you used the bearing on the wrong side. In that case all you have to do is to take it apart and put it on the other side and it will be good. :)

      we have some spare parts, but our systems are set up to require an order with shipping so we can send something out (since we are an online store). Next time you place an order with us, mention that you have a missing bearing and the sales rep might…with much effort….hopefully be able to add a bearing to the shipment so your VorteX is up and running again. If you are in the area and visit our office, they will take care of your issue without needing an order (since shipping is not an issue there).

      Hope this helps :)

  2. Is there any other tutorial video detailing how to clean the zeus vortex and/or remove the o-ring? Maybe there is no o-ring to remove and everything can just be placed in an alcohol bath?

    • There is actually no o-ring, so pretty much everything ( except for the acryl clear top ) can be placed in or cleaned with rubbing alcohol :)
