nebulizer

 [neb´u-līz″er]
a device for dispensing liquid in a fine spray; types used include jet and ultrasonic nebulizers. Called also atomizer.
small volume nebulizer a pneumatically powered device used to aerosolize medications for delivery to patients.
ultrasonic nebulizer an electronic device that generates ultrasound waves that break up water into an aerosol mist.
Venturi nebulizer a type of nebulizer used in aerosol therapy. The pressure drop of gas flowing through the venturi mask draws liquid from a capillary tube; as the liquid enters the gas stream it breaks up into a spray of small droplets.

at·om·iz·er

(at'ŏm-ī-zer),
A device used to reduce liquid medication to fine particles in the form of a spray or aerosol; useful in delivering medication to the lungs, nose, and throat.

Ultrasonic atomizers with vibration frequencies of 2.5 MHz and 1.65 MHz are commercially available, and were considered for the study.
Application was performed at the moment of panicle emergence, R3 growth stage (Counce et al., 2000) and the mixture of fungicides consisted in the active ingredients Azoxystrobin 250 g + Difenoconazole 250 g, commercialized with the name of Priori + Score[R] at dose of 0.4 + 0.15 L [ha.sup.-1], plus the adjuvant Nimbus[R] 0.5 L [ha.sup.-1], mixed with the vegetable oil Agroleo[R] 0.5 L [ha.sup.-1] when the rotary disc atomizer was used, because the BVO[R] (low oil volume) system required only mixture with addition of oil.
constructed and tested high frequency SAW atomizers, with resonance frequencies in the range 50-95 MHz [52].
In some states, Medicaid will cover the atomizer. Sometimes insurance covers the naloxone.
The parameter [L.sub.o]/[D.sub.o] should also be reduced to minimize friction losses in the atomizer exit.
The experimental investigations are carried out for pressure swirl atomizer of tubular type combustion chamber for micro gas turbine.
In a simple pressure swirl atomizer (Giffen and Muraszew 1953; Lefevbre 1983, 1989; Bayvel & Orzechowski 1993; Ramamurthi & Tharakan 1995, 1998), swirling motion is imparted to the liquid inside the atomizer by passing it through a swirling chamber, which results in a tangential velocity component in the flow.
"The development of higher capacity rotary atomizers equipped with stronger turbines for increased paint flow, new bell cup atomizing concepts for one-pass instead of two-pass processes, and paint robots with higher performance to complement the reduced number of atomizers has been the response from equipment manufacturers," says Endregaard.
The Sanctuaries, which command a $10 charge for half-day passes, have massage cabanas, drink and meal service, deluxe chaise lounges and amenities such as Evian water atomizers and chilled face towels.
* the ability to use manifold-mount robot spray guns and rotary atomizers; and
Further developments in light sources and atomizers could greatly increase the number of applications of AFS.
