There is a lot of controversy over what actually constitutes 'Convection' vs 'Conduction' in an herbal vaporizer. With a Convection vaporizer the heating element is below the chamber and heats the air before it enters the chamber. As you draw - the heated air is pulled up into the chamber. This hot air is constantly heating your material causing an increase in vapor production throughout your draw. With a Conduction vaporizer the chamber is directly heated and is the heating element or 'oven' that cooks your material. As you draw - cool air is pulled up into the chamber - this cools off the chamber causing a drop-off in vapor production throughout your draw.
Convection does not 'cook' your material - it evenly vaporizes your material with hot air that flows throughout your material as you take a draw and you never need to stir your material. Conduction will cook the edges and the bottom of your material and you will need to stir your material after each session. Convection heating is simply a much more effective and efficient technology than conduction.
Our FORCE and FURY are Convection vaporizers - meaning that there is only one heating element that is below the chamber and heats the air before it enters the chamber. The top of the heating element is close to the chamber but does not directly contact it - this allows the chamber to pick up the perfect amount of radiant heat to give you massive & tasty vapor from the very first draw. This is the best design to utilize Convection Technology in a convection vaporizer system. Since there is no heating element attached to the chamber - the chamber cools quickly to preserve your material for your next session.
Our vaporizers are Convection vaporizers - so do NOT pack your material. Keep it loose - the hot air needs to move freely throughout your material - and it never needs to be stirred.
All the Best!
