The bypass channel and the vaporization chamber. The latter has wicks or baffles to increase the surface area available for vaporization (Fig. 18). The splitting ratio is controlled by a temperature-sensitive valve utilizing a bimetallic strip (Fig. 19). The latter is made of two strips of metal with different coefficients of thermal expansion bonded together. It is positioned inside the vaporization chamber in the Tec Mk 2 whereas in Tec Mk 3, 4 and 5, it is outside the vaporization chamber.
At high flow rates, the clearance is shorter and wider, thus acting as an orifice. Here, the flow is turbulent and a function of gas density. The top of the bobbin has slits (flutes) cut into its side. As gas flows past it, the slits cause the bobbin to rotate. A dot on the bobbin indicates to the operator that the bobbin is rotating and not stuck. The reading of the flowmeter is taken from the top of the bobbin (Fig. 13). When a ball is used, the reading is generally taken from the midpoint of the ball.
A temperature-sensitive valve controls the splitting ratio. It is positioned outside the vaporizing chamber in Tec Mk 3, 4 and 5. ● The gas leaving the vaporizing chamber is fully saturated. ● The effect of back pressure is compensated for. To common gas outlet Fig. 22 The Selectatec series mounted manifold bypass circuit. Only when a vaporizer is locked in position and turned on can fresh gas enter. Vaporizer B is turned off and is isolated from the fresh gas which only enters vaporizer A which is turned on.
