How to Choose a Vaporizer
There is no vaporizer manufacturer who will ever agree to claims that their competitor makes better models than they do. This makes it hard to know which manufacturer’s claims are true. They, therefore, need to know which heating elements are the best, despite the brand they will be packaged in.
The heating element of a vaporizer is where all concern should be. These elements modulate the temperature that shall be used to catalyze the active ingredients, when that air passes through it. That air can be either forced through of flown through, by a pumping mechanism, or by forced inhaling by the user, respectively. The element has to maintain an accurate temperature, as per the settings. There are different kinds of heating elements commonly used.
There are ceramic heating elements. They are popularly known as the cleanest and the healthiest element there is. This is dues to the fact that ceramic can withstand extremely high temperatures before it can reach boiling point. This is how they earned their positive reputation. This does not mean that other elements are not, since their boiling points are well above what can be attained in the vaporizer.
It should be made public the kinds of materials in the heating chamber, whether it is purely the ceramic, for example, or if there are other materials incorporated, which could affect the quality of the end product and its health implications. It is common for cheap vaporizer manufacturers to use more than one heating element material in the heating chamber, which is substandard, to attain such low prices. The only way to know is to ask the manufacturer what elements are present, apart from taking it apart.
Low quality ceramic vaporizer greatly diminish its reputation. High quality ceramic vaporizers are the best in the market. If the kind of circuitry and computer chip technology is top quality, they shall also be very accurate.
Aluminum makes another heating element kind. Some say it is better than ceramic due to its faster eating response time. as much a it has a lower boiling point than ceramic, it is still in the safe temperature range. This makes any claims that it increases risk to Alzheimer’s disease false.
Glass is also another heating element. It has characteristics similar to ceramic.
This information should make the decision to use certain vaporizers more about the user’s taste and less about health concerns. Precision also, falls into the same category. Any health concern may lay with the type of plastic housing and tubing used in different models. Expensive vaporizers have better heating element. For midrange ones, it is best to stick to the ceramic models.
