Which Vaporizer Heating Element is Right For You?
When purchasing a vaporizer, you will notice the types of heating elements vary, depending on the make and model you choose. The heating element is a very important part of any vaporizer, as it regulates the air temperature of the aromatherapy blends as it creates vapor. You want to ensure the heating element is accurate and precise so it heats at the exact temperature that is set.
With forced air (balloon) style vaporizers, air passes over the heating element using a pump or fan. With direct draw vaporizers, air circulates using one's own breath to directly inhale vapor. All makes and models require an accurate heating element to create an effective experience; they are the heart of every vaporizer.
There are 3 different types of heating elements used in vaporizers. These are either ceramic, aluminum, or glass heating elements, each with their own benefits, price and quality.
The ceramic heating element is most frequently used in vaporizers. This element can withstand very high temperatures, up to 3000 °F. Another factor to research when considering a ceramic heating element is the quality of the vaporizer. The term "ceramic" simply means that ceramic is used in the design of the heating element, and air may touch other materials as well. The quality of materials used in the vaporizer will vary by manufacturer. If you purchase a lower priced vaporizer, there may be a greater probability that it contains and unclean vapor pathway, allowing air to be passed through wiring and soldering.
A high quality, well-designed ceramic heating element is very effective, precise, and clean. The accuracy of the heating element is determined by computer chip technology within the vaporizer. Some examples of good vaporizers that use ceramic heating elements can be found online through some simple research.
The next type of heating element is made from aluminum, which is very precise, as it reacts quickly to changes in temperatures and can maintain exact temperature control. This factor is very important in vaporization, as temperature controls the density of the vapor and adjustments can be made for changes in air pressure and air flow over your aromatherapy blends.
