Would you believe if it did not happen then the carb is not working as it should. Simple fact is that as the gas gets atomized it also gets very cold so yep the carb will frost up simple physic's and in a car or truck with a carb it would do the same thing is it was not for the hot air intake off the exhaust manifold. Same thing happens with compressed air. As it is compressed it gets hotter but as you let it back out like with an air blow gun it gets colder and if you where to hold that blow gun at the same place long enough it would also frost up where it was hitting

The energy needed to change a liquid to a gas is called heat of vaporization. Gasoline is like freon, change it's state from a liquid to a gas removes energy from it's surrondings, cold carb, frost.

I have and always have heard the term atomizing so that is what I use when talking about what and how a carb works so I will keep doing so since that is what I was taught and I learned that 40 plus years ago

Yep and that is a combination of problems. #1 you have water in your air system so you need an air dryer. #2 that is also normal since as you decompress air it cools and in doing so yep it can cool to the point of freezing and you can even give your self a frost/freeze burn using compressed air
