How do vaporizers work

Как работает вапорайзер

Vaporizer - is the most modern and harmless device for smoking, which has no analogues. The invention of the vaporizer in 1995, which was originally intended for medical purposes, revolutionized the accessories industry for smoking.

The innovation of the Vaporizer is a built-in heating element that heats the smoking mixture to extremely high temperatures. This technology allows you to evaporate only the active and beneficial substances, and resins and carcinogens leave in the stafa. It turns out that during the session of vaporization, smoke enters the body, saturated with exclusively active substances. The process of vaporization completely eliminates the harmful effects of resins, and therefore is harmless. For example, when vaporizing tobacco, only nicotine enters your body. Pitches during vaporization do not evaporate, but remain in tobacco. But this is not the only plus Vaporizer. It is very important that when vaporization there is no direct contact with the fire. As you know, with classical smoking using open fire (matches or lighters), up to 80% of the active and beneficial substances are destroyed! Using a vaporizer, you get all 100% active substances. It is thanks to this that Vaporizers are wildly popular in America and Europe.

Are you interested in how the device for evaporation is arranged from the inside? Especially for you, we disassembled the device into its constituent elements. So, what is a vaporizer, and how does it work?

When the smoking mixture is heated to a temperature of 150 to 230 degrees Celsius, the psychoactive THC (and many other substances) evaporates. They evaporate in the form of tiny droplets and form an aerosol that is outwardly indistinguishable from ordinary water vapor. The vaporizer performs heating using power from an internal battery.

There are also more modern models of vaporizers, created by technologies developed by the Chinese pharmacist and inventor Hon Lik. His patents are currently owned and operated by Imperial Tobacco. These vaporizers vaporize the smoking mixture not by heating, but by high-frequency ultrasonic vibrations. Not too easy to understand, is it? Therefore, most modern vaporizers use the good old heating method to create a vapor-air mixture.

And now let's take a closer look at the individual components of the gadget:

1. Reservoir

Usually it is called a tank, if it is reusable, and a cartridge - if it is disposable. Often it is combined with the atomizer into a single structure. As a rule, it is made of inactive polycarbonate plastic, but in some models it can be glass or stainless steel.

2. Atomizer

The heating element in a vaporizer is often called an atomizer or an evaporator. There are more specialized names - cartomizers, clearomizers, and other new slang words, but the differences are very minor, and the principle of operation is always the same - a tiny heater sprays liquid onto separate micro droplets. Theoretically, this dispersion is vaporization, but from a technical point of view, everything is much more complicated.

If you just drop a drop of oil directly on the heating element - you get a spray. Surround the heater with a material that is saturated with oil so that it does not come into contact with the heater directly - and you will get a cartomizer. If the delivery of oil from the tank is carried out using a quartz wick - the device will be called a clearomizer ... The wicks can also be cotton, or from fine steel mesh, or from other modern premium materials.

3. Sensors and software

Some devices turn on automatically when the user tightens, while others require pressing a button to turn on heat. Both of these methods use different sensors to control the heating process. The embedded software controls various elements of the vaporizer design.

4. Battery

A vaporizer battery should provide enough current to power a tiny heater that should heat up to 220 degrees in seconds. Therefore, in vaporizers, as in mobile phones and other energy-intensive devices, mainly lithium-ion batteries with high charge density are used. In addition, they are explosion-proof, even if their charge occurs in violation of instructions.

All these elements, when assembled together (and charged with a special mixture of cannabis), form a wonderful vaporizer device that produces a vapor-air mixture enriched with the compounds of THC and terpenes desired by us.

Myths about vaporizers

Myth number 1. The effect from a vaporizer is weaker than from smoking

So it seems to many who try the vaporizer for the first time. However, the truth is that the effect is just a little different . This is due to the absence of smoke and its harmful components. It is not difficult to guess that any inhaled substance affects our body. And the influence of the by-products of combustion contained in the smoke, many dilettantes mistaken for a stronger effect.

Myth number 2. Material consumption during vaporization is higher than during smoking.

Vaporization is much more effective than smoking. And this is a fact. During smoking, up to 20-30% of the active substances are destroyed due to the pyrolysis process due to the direct contact of the mixture with fire. When vaporization does not occur. On the contrary, a vaporizer will help you save your precious tobacco.
