jet nebulizer

jet neb·u·liz·er

an atomizer that uses an air or gas stream to change a liquid into small particles.

jet nebulizer

Etymology: L, nebula, mist
a humidifier that uses Bernoulli's principle to convert a pool of liquid into a fine mist of aerosol particles. A jet stream of gas is projected at high velocity across the end of a capillary tube. The gas jet reduces the pressure at the top of the tube, causing the liquid to move to the top, where it is continuously drawn off as aerosol particles that enter the outflow passage of the humidifier.
