An inside view of a Magma atty.

Tonight I took a dead Magma atty apart and took a few pictures, Hopefully it will be of some use to other vapers.

This is the outer shell of the atomizer. Its main purpose is to hold a drip tip or cartridge in place.

This is the inner shell, it holds everything in the proper place.

On the left is the mesh over the bridge frame and on the right is the mesh around the coil cup. It helps keep the liquid close to the wick and helps keep it from running straight through the atty. You can also see a ring seal on the piece on the right.

This is the bridge frame. It holds the frame mesh in place and provides a solid surface to puncture the seal on cartridges if that is what you are using.

This is the wick, or what is left of it. This atty had a hard life :) It wicks the liquid down to the coil.

The is the coil and ceramic cup. This is where the vapor is actually produced. The holes in the side are what directs the airflow across the coil. This is also where liquid can leak out when it is flooded.

This is a view of the coil inside of the cup. As you can it is pretty gunked up and is likely what caused it to fail. Crud building up around the coil decreases the surface area for heating the liquid which will decrease vapor production. As it gets worse less liquid is held in the cup and the coil will get hotter which increases the chances of it burning in to.

This is the bottom seal. It seals most of the atty and helps direct the air flow.

This is the threaded connector that hold the atty in place and provides part of the electrical connection.

This is the insulator ring. It separates the two electrical connections.

This is the bottom plate, it provides the other half of the electrical connection and sometimes needs to be adjusted.

There was a picture limit per post.

this is an awesome way to explain atomizers to those that know nothing about them besides the fact that you screw them on, and they heat things up (aka this girl).

I'm sure your atty is proud to have its 15 minutes of fame. it died a good death. :thumbup:

Thanks. I have seen pictures of different attys taken apart, but I wanted to try it myself.
