Many people still don’t fully understand the benefits of the recycler design, which is reasonable given the lack of easily digested information out there. If you’ll notice, there’s more than one path for the smoke to take. The smoke goes through the typical path through the percolators, then some of it is carried down by the water via gravity back into the lower chambers via the alternate paths provided by small drainage tubes. This allows the smoke to be “recycled” through the percolators multiple times. This increases the ability of percolators to filter, moisturize, and cool the smoke. Additionally, recyclers are typically designed so that bubbles from percolation tend to pop closer to your mouth. This allows you to get the full flavor and moisture of a freshly filtered hit. Put simply, the recycler design increases percolation power and makes hits more flavorful.
In this piece, the faberge perc is coupled with the showerhead perc below. Faberge percolators are often misunderstood, but contrary to common belief, they do serve a functional purpose. When the bubbles rise up out of the showerhead perc, the indentations on the glass split up the bubbles, thereby increasing their surface area and therefore smoke filtration. Because faberge percs are made with the shape of the glass and not actual parts, they’re not easily breakable. Their design is also intended to be decorative. It’s rare for a perc to have such style and elegance while also maintaining such a useful purpose. This makes them an appealing option to those who place real value on the aesthetics of their collection.
This particular recycler uses an extra large vortex chamber as well as a two symmetrical drains. This makes for better aesthetics and smoother hits. Additionally, the bottom chamber allows for more water which gives a weighted base and improved stability. This unique design is definitely a nice addition to any collection.
