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.

The results indicate greater penetration of droplets with rotary atomizers, a fact related to the production of small droplets and addition of adjuvants, which promote longer useful life, increasing the chances of reaching the target.

Sutherland, Sojka and Plesniak [13] have developed a model that describes the performance of a ligament-controlled effervescent atomizer. Their model describes the spray formation process as the breakup of individual cylindrical ligaments subject to a gas stream and solves for the fastest growing disturbance, which is then correlated to the droplet diameter.
They loved an antique bulb atomizer that we presented to them, so we used this component--classy, edgy, and feminine at the same time--as the focal point of the entire line."
