The DaVinci IQ Pearl
The DaVinci IQ Pearl is a small but very important component for the IQ’s functionality as it emanates heat from the bottom end of the chamber, ensuring even vaporization of your herb.
How The DaVinci IQ Pearl Works:
The IQ Pearl helps you to pack your herb in the bowl firmly by screwing into the bottom of the chamber lid so that when the lid is closed, the Pearl tamps down the chamber for a tightly packed bowl. Heat then radiates from the
DaVinci Pearl to evenly vaporize dry herb. This DaVinci Vaporizer part is composed of high-grade zirconia ceramic, ensuring the best conduction and vapor quality
We use the pearl in most of our recent devices. The pearl itself has a couple of interesting properties, and we included it mainly for the following three.
Firstly is even airflow. Guided into the oven through an inlet, Air moves through the IQ2 from the bottom, through the holes in the Airdial. Because the pearl is round, it guides the air around it into the oven chamber’s cylindrical axis. This allows air to flow through the oven more evenly than it would without the pearl.
Secondly, the reason why we chose this pearl is, it helps compact the herbal material that you load into the oven.
Thirdly as conduction vaporizers go, one of the factors that effects how heat transfers through your oven, and thus through your herb, is the surface area of contact.
How it all works together :
Finally when your herbal material must be compacted, the shreds are closer together. This increases the surface area contact, allowing more energy to transfer through your material.
Compaction of your herbal material helps heat transfer. This is why we have spacers, and this pearl. This idea can be seen in coffee filters and other devices outside the cannabis industry as well.
The last point is heat transfer. The oven made out of alumina-ceramic, which has a higher heat transfer coefficient.
That allows heat to distribute itself evenly throughout the oven. The black ceramic that the pearl made out of, called zirconia.
It’s stronger, but when compared to the oven, it’s thermal conductivity is lower.
The pearl acts as an insulator because of this. Allowing more energy to stay in your herbal material because there is no transfer into the pearl.
Later in your session when the pearl DOES heat up, you will start to get more even heating throughout your oven.
