Salutations fellow vaporists, I launched this venture of mine quite a long while ago and now here's the outcome: Using VaporGenie Bronze Sherlock Using VaporGenie Classic-style Aluminium My "Lava" concept behind combines 2 different heater technologies into 1 single implementation and hence i shall refer to the "Bi-Energy" niche as defined here: 1) "Plan-A" Electromagnetic Induction Heat; 2) "Plan-B" Clean Butane Burning (fall-back option). The "B" in "Plan-B" stands for butane and i got this part solved to my satisfaction, "Plan-A" though remains an idea still translating in much too little real-life experience so far, mainly because it depends on the Curie effect which essentially disengages the transformation of electromagnetic power into heat as the idealized "susceptor" reaches its target temperature (set by metallurgic formulation, e.g. heating is self-limited within the Hybrid Core by going magnetically "transparent" once Pre-Heated)... My "Plan-B" only opens a window on what "Plan-A" has to offer, which in principle can be described as "packetized" injection of energy into a Hybrid Core that functions like a thermal bottle - with socio-acceptability and Harm-Reduction in mind... That revised (composite) core exploits transitions between insulation and heating based on aerial movement, etc. Below this is how i envision implementation of the concept; please take note the intellectual property for "Plan-B" belongs to VaporGenie as they refer to it in fig. 11/12 of their registered patent (US 7434584 B2), while "Bi-Energy" emerged as a fantasy of mine which depends on their thechnology nonetheless. Consequently the Lava concept can only become a reality in the hands of VaporGenie who once informed me they don't want to be bothered with it, unfortunately. That won't stop me from keeping hope VG will want to add an IH mode to their patent as i once suggested via e-Mail, long ago... In any case i'm in favour of doing more with less so that's why this new conceptual edifice crumbles as soon as VG's primary sparkle is taken away; this animation illustrating IH mode should help to understand how, more exactly: Egzoset's Near-Symetrical Bi-Energy Lava Capsule In "Plan-B" 1 Hybrid Core works as the Heat Source and the other as a simple particles filter (if it's a "DeLuxe" configuration)... In "Plan-A" both Hybrid Cores are being powered and this makes it desirable to heat from both sides, naturally... Using 2 slightly different Hybrid Cores it should become possible to implement continuous analog control of heat in the Bowl working as the Mixing Site... Adjustment would be equivalent to a "boost"/"purge" feature that affects heat only during the Pause intervals in Micro-Bursting mode: The red bars represent the Pre-Heating phase which is when the Hybrid Core is powered. Once a "Heat Charge" has been loaded the blue flame (or IH driver) is disengaged and then the intended vaporist inhalation can finally begin: In retrospective i find this pulsed consumption mode is reminescent of the pumping action with traditional pipes... Etc. Addition of magnetic poles in the central Bowl-Ring would possibly support self-stirring as well as audio signalling combined to tap-command operation (no keys, no display), e.g. with disabled persons in mind if desired. Using Curie alloys for the Bowl-Ring and Flame-Catchers (TC0 ~ 135 °C) it should even be possible to "potentialize" the Release/Transport Agent with Inlet Moisturization ("Plan-A" would use an auxiliary distilled water boiler/evaporator implemented inside the Flame-Cathers using moist cotton, for example, while "Plan-B" is already proving the value of super hot H2O and CO2 gasses generated in the corona of a blue flame)... Etc., etc. Good day, have fun!!
