    kinabaloo--They will be ready for Dismanting tommorrow--will be very interesting to see the difference between straight VG and straight PG--This, as you suggested, takes any flavoring tainting out of the equation and would let us see if there is a straight difference between PG and VG in this experiment------Sun

    My hypothesis is that both will have no deposit - but let's see :)

    Unless VG / PG degrade, should be no deposit. However, no deposit does not imply no degrading, only no solid degradation products.

    No deposits will be good news.

    I hope you used distilled water.

    If you have a homebrew shop or a soap/cosmetic supplier near you they both usally sells citric acid. However homebrew stores tend to way over charge for it.

    I have been wondering if the juice could be 'distilled' to get rid of whatever it is that gets left behind on the atomizer coil but I don't know anything about how to do stuff like that.

    Ohh dangerous and fun... probablly not the best thing to distill this stuff... however if you need a tiny still I can point you in the dirction of a small essential oil still, because mine would be way to big....

    RjG--thankd for it link. If this stuff works, then we will have a source to buy. I know that Bickford's Flavoring also sells it. Blueeyes is contributing to the experiment and we thank them greatfully!!!--Sun

    Now if you are into caustic chemicals a nice sodium hydroxide solution followed by a citric acid bath then a rinse, there should be nothing left on it... you don't like the finish color anyway right? hehehe


    This is a Joke, unless it is made out of stainless or glass do not put it in sodium hydroxide the fumes are deadly if there is any aluminum in it!!!

    Pete - know your meaning and it's a reasonable idea but would not e a good approach. The juice makers can try to make sure that the formula contains no substances that will leave a dry deposit (everything in it will evaporate by 160C). It would be very wasteful, time-consuming and complicated to heat all the juice in advance to get the dry deposits out of the juice before we use it in a VP.

    Dry deposits would incude minerals from non-distilled water, impurities, dissolved solids from making flavors by simple soaking, things like gums, starches etc, such as when soak tobacco in water. A juice need not/should not leave any dry residue, but some flavors might not be possible to accurately duplicate this way. Most aromatics will readily evaporate at normal coil temperatures but not all flavorings will.

    Even then, the coil would slowly get a deposit from dust and such in the air.
