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. It is important then for the consumers to understand the difference in the heating elements used in the manufacture of the vaporizers, which is more important than which model it comes shipped 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. The air passing through can be forced through with a blowing mechanism or can be pulled through by the person using the vaporizer. The temperature set needs to be constant, which is the duty of the element to maintain. The kind of heating elements vary in type and design.
Ceramic heating elements are common examples. They have a reputation of being the cleanest and therefore the healthiest. Ceramic can withstand extremely high temperatures before they are affected. 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. If you get a cheap vaporizer, you can bet there are other materials used in the heating channel. It is hard to tell what the manufacturer used in making the heating chamber, short of taking it apart, if they refuse to disclose this information when you go asking.
The low-quality ones give ceramic vaporizers a bad reputation. The top qualities are the best in the market. They attain high accuracy when they are used in line with precision engineered circuitry and computer chip technology.
Aluminum is also another good heating element. It reacts faster to heat, which has some people claiming it is the better heating element. It may have a lower boiling point than ceramic, but it is still high enough not to endanger the life of the user. It is therefore wrong for some people to say it can lead to Alzheimer’s disease.
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. The focus on health may lie with the plastic materials incorporated in the design. Expensive vaporizers have better heating element. Choose ceramic ones in the midrange price point.
