Hydrology9 looks and functions like no other vaporizer you’ve used before. Crafted from spacegrade aluminum alloy and borosilicate glass and fitted with LED lights, this futuristic vape almost looks as if it might double as a lightsaber!
As sick as it looks, what sets it apart is unparalleled water filtration technology. Vaping is all about smoothness, and the addition of water enhanced the sensation even more. Hydrology9’s patent pending “tunnel-tube” system allows an unobstructed flow while keeping it leakproof and aesthetically seamless.
Designer: Richard Huang of Cloudious9
“Creating a truly unique vaporizer required us to think completely outside the scope of existing vaporizers on the market. This meant solving new challenges and having no prior reference resolution for a new problem that others have never tackled. The results are a brand new approach to dealing with liquid filtration, and thus the birth of our patent pending “tunnel tube” liquid filtration design and even heat distribution stir,” designer Richard Huang told YD.
“Vaporizers with any liquid filtration capability usually implement it as an add-on, and the entire device is not specifically optimized for liquid filtration. The results are inconveniences from numerous moving parts and a lack of a truly portable solution. After identifying this void, Cloudious9 was set on a mission to create a disruptive product for an industry that longed for innovation.”
“Creating a new vaporizer solution without anything similar on the market also prevented our product design team from being clouded by others’ design concepts, since we have no identical competitor. This allows our design team to unleash our creativity and bring to the world our widely acclaimed exterior design.”
We designed the mouthpiece using 1/4 inch thick Borosilicate glass, which provides the best combination of strength and clarity. It was designed to curve at the perfect angle to provide the most exceptional comfort and ease of cleaning. Completing the Hydrology9 portable liquid filtration experience is a perfectly positioned ball valve built inside the mouthpiece, which allows the Hydrology9 to be carried and turned in any direction without the fear of spillage.
Nothing comes close to the familiarity of a crystal-clear glass piece when liquid filtration is involved. After numerous revisions and considerations, we were set on a minimalist cylinder design precisely shaped to prevent any liquid spillage while conforming to a grip easily.
We implemented a patent-pending solution to a typical problem we see in today’s vaporizers: a built-in device that allows you to evenly and efficiently distribute heat. The stir was integrated with the bottom chamber cover, with the cover made of spacecraft-grade aluminum alloy and the stir itself made of heat resistant stainless steel.
Allowing unobstructed flow of vapor while keeping the Hydrology9 leakproof is inherently a conflicting concept. Accomplishing both goals in a seamlessly integrated design was truly challenging. The ability to fuse all three requirements aesthetically into the Hydrology9 design is the heart of Hydrology9’s innovation. The results are a brand-new approach to liquid filtration, and the birth of our patent-pending “tunnel tube” liquid filtration design.
