How to Choose a Vaporizer
Most of the makers of vaporizers will claim their products are the best, while alleging various health risks associated with the competitors’ models. 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 is the most important part of the vaporizer. It works by controlling the temperature of the air that is used to catalyze the active ingredients when it 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 temperature set needs to be constant, which is the duty of the element to maintain. There are different kinds of heating elements commonly used.
There are ceramic heating elements. They have a reputation of being the cleanest and therefore the healthiest. Ceramic has the property of taking so much heat before it gets anywhere near its boiling point, which is extremely beneficial in its use as a heating element. That is how they are classified as the cleanest and the healthiest. This should not be taken to mean that other heating elements are any less, since their boiling points can never be reached in the operation of a vaporizer.
It is also important to know whether the ceramic used in the vaporizer cover all or only parts of it, as other materials in the vaporizing channel can affect it. Normally, the cheaper the vaporizer, the more likely there are other materials exposed in the channel. 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. When combined with precision engineered circuitry and computer chip technology, they are also very accurate.
Aluminum is also another good heating element. Some say it is better than ceramic due to its faster eating response time. Despite the fact that its boiling point is lower than that of ceramic, it is still far too high to pose any health risk. It is therefore wrong for some people to say it can lead to Alzheimer’s disease.
Another one is glass. It does not differ much to ceramic in its properties.
When you consider all this, it becomes clear that choosing a heating element has more to do with personal taste than health concerns. Precision can also be viewed similarly. A point of concern would be the plastic housing and piping in the vaporizer. Expensive vaporizers have better heating element. Choose ceramic ones in the midrange price point.
