Incycler & Recycler Rigs: What's The Difference?

Incycler & Recycler Rigs: What's The Difference?

  • A B

In the world of dab rigs, incyclers and recyclers provide a special, top-of-the-line smoking experience. But, what exactly is the difference between an incycler and a recycler? Let's explore some of the reasons why these dab rigs are so amazing.

Recyclers And Incyclers

A recycler is a type of oil rig that has two chambers instead of just one. These chambers are designed to continuously pull water vapor from one to the other, which saves the smoke, cools it down and helps deliver smooth, flavorful hits. You also have several percolation options to choose from. So whether you prefer a little diffusion or a lot, you can choose the perfect percolator for your needs.

An incycler is a special type of recycler. While incyclers still have the two-chamber system, the second chamber is housed within the first, rather than alongside it. Incyclers can deliver the same smooth hits as regular recyclers, but tend to be a bit more compact in design.

Is One Better Than The Other?

The main difference between a standard recycler and an incycler is aesthetics. Both of the dab rigs function essentially the same, but they are designed to do it in slightly different ways. A recycler's multiple chambers can give your rig the look of an awesome science experiment, while the internal structure of an incycler gives you more of a fountain effect.

Another benefit of the cool visual effects of the water traveling throughout the chambers is that residue is easier to clean up. The leftover grime from smoking oils and concentrates tends to build up the worst on dry areas of your water pipe or dab rig. Thanks to the constant motion of the water, pretty much every internal surface of a recycler rig remains wet. While it's still good to clean your rig with a salt water mixture on a regular basis, a recycler or incycler tends to stay nicer looking for longer in between cleanings.

Overall, recyclers and incyclers have a special element of fun to them, so you might want to choose the one that’ll give you the coolest visual effects while delivering the smoothest hits.

The Best Of Both Worlds

One final option to consider is the "Klein" style incycler. A Klein incycler combines the internal chambers of an incycler with external tubes that make it look more like a recycler. This function helps ensure that the rig's drain doesn't interfere with the percolator, which would make taking hits more difficult. Certain kinds of faberge egg rigs qualify as Klein incyclers, giving you an extra, awesome style option.
