SteamShell aesthetic features / finishes
The SteamShell is available in the following finishes:
Stainless Steel (SS)
SS is a satin finish, close to the natural appearance of CNC processed Stainless Steel.

SteamShell functional features
At first sight, the rectangular deck of the SteamShell resembles much to that of the VapeShell. Diagonal placement of posts for single coil setups, hosting the same high precision small pan head phillips post screws, plus rails to capture wire either between rail and screw head / body or around the screw body (depending on wire diameter). Wicking holes are still at the bottom of the assembly. and air comes from below, right under the coil.
But this is all with similarities here.
Convenient cut – outs on outer deck rim have been added, for easier rebuilding. The liquid intake holes are drilled out in a special , cone-like shape, to ensure sufficient liquid intake while wicking.
Real time access to deck is a must for any contemporary rebuildable design. We have materialised it in the most efficient and user friendly way, by connecting the deck and the chimney body (chamber) parts through a precisely CNC machined, sleeve type collaboration. When used with the SnailTank and similar Boro sized tanks, you can access your deck any time you want and check your build, or even change build without dumping the liquid of your tank.
The air flow
The air flow ring and the air flow tubes that used to be pinned from the top side of the deck are now past. We have skipped them in need for precise, real time configuration of the air flow, as already introduced with our previous projects (VapeSnail, Tripod2 and Aer). On the SteamShell, the airflow is regulated right under the coil, through fixed air flow tubes – always with the ability to swap air flow tubes any time / real time, keeping the build and the liquid inside the tank absolutely intact. You may dial in your air flow via five pin options, with air hole diameter 0.8mm/1.0mm/1.2mm/ 1.5mm/1.8mm respectively, pinned inside a D=4.0mm nest, plus through five air flow tubes with air hole diameter 2.0mm/2.5mm/3.0mm/3.5mm/4.0mm (last one also serving as pins nest), or use the 5.0mm air flow pole pinned inside the deck Nut from below, for the most airy Direct Lung draw you can find among RBAs.
MTL, rDL or DL
The whole range of draw types is taken care of, with tubes and pins as described above. But we haven’t stopped at that. Fine tuning an MTL, rDL or DL profile, also requires proper proper outlet – vaporization chamber and chimney. We have taken this into account, so the SteamShell will come with two Chimney options out of the box, carefully designed to serve MTL and tight rDL vaping (Restricted Chimney) on the one hand, and loose rDL with DL (Open Chimney) on the other. This simplifies things, with a design solution which is friendlier to the end user compared to the use of chimney reducers.
A sturdy 510 aux Base for rebuilding is included too. We have preferred this functional option, instead of skipping the aux base in favor of a 510 threading around the bottom part of the RBA , as the latter would restrict the maximum air flow option down to only 3/3.5mm roughly.
– Air flow tuning via five pin options 0.8mm/1.0mm/1.2mm/ 1.5mm/1.8mm respectively, pinned inside a D=4.0mm nest, plus through five air flow tubes 2.0mm/2.5mm/3.0mm/3.5mm/4.0mm. Air flow pole 5.0mm pinned inside the deck Nut from below for a perfect airy 5.0mm DL.
