One caveat: it only has three ports--for the fuel line, the purge vacuum from the carb, and the manifold vacuum from the PCV valve. There is no carb bowl vacuum, so if you need that port it won't work. Since the Weber I have on the Jeep doesn't use the carb bowl vent, it worked perfectly for my application.
Thanks for the follow up!

You can easily just add a T fitting to the gas tank vent line if you need to pick up the float bowl.

Or buy a vented fuel cap & plug the tank vent hose.

IF the canister it's self is the problem, and it's not damaged externally, you can dry the canisters out, but DO NOT put them in a gas flame oven!

The canisters will off gas fuel vapor as they dry out internally and having them in with an open flame is a BAD IDEA!

An "oven" for storing electrodes will work, and you can make a suitable one using an old metal mailbox w/door. Install an EE-rated fixture and use a 100W bulb - one of the "security" lights with metal cage & glass globe over the bulb is great. Drill a couple small holes in the mailbox to let it vent fumes. You can use it for storing electrodes, drying vapor canisters, or even reactivating desiccant packs.

If I put my Weber BBQ grill with the lid on in the sun on a hot Houston afternoon, it will easily reach 130 degees from the sun alone. That might be a cheap way to possibly do this, although I don't know if it would hit 150 or not.
