Originally called the Atmos RAW, the AtmosRx Vaporizer is a high-performance herbal vaporizer that is designed for dry blends. This unit heats material using a skillet-like heating coil and ceramic filter that dispenses clean aromatic vapor in less than 5 seconds. It operates well below the temperature required to burn herb through a process called vaporization. There's no combustion, hence no smoke. Instead, the AtmosRx gently heats just enough to release the essence of your favorite herbs. The process of AtmosRx vaporization or volatilization releases the essential, active elements of a substance without any burning. The AtmosRx uses a cutting-edge convection technology that releases just enough heat and air to discharge the vital elements; but not enough heat and air for the materials to combust.
