Heating Element
Hi, i am considering building a hot air vaporizer, i had found a 200w heating element but it is 110v ac, i was thinking of using an AC to DC converter into 12v DC, is this possible and what wattage would i expect as i am looking to heat the water to around 50 oC and use an Ultrasonic Transducer ?

Many thanks

You don't need to go to the extra trouble of building a heating unit to get vapor. There are several cold-vaporizers available that will create all the vapor you need.

RE: Heating Element
You don't actually want vapor. You want droplets. Heat actually defeats the purpose. You want water mist in droplet form.

RE: Heating Element
Hi rpatzer
Thanks for the link but i am actually looking for an ultrasonic water vaporizer, much simpler to build and also i am based in the uk, shipping is quite expensive for the US to UK. Thanks
Hi Mike
Thanks for your advice.
I have seen videos that an ultrasonic fogger produces mist as well as droplets. I know that for the ultrasonic fogger to run sufficient and last longer by using distilled water, would you happen to know if i can add antifreeze as in the UK, Scotland we have a long and cold winter ?
Many thanks
