Title
(EN) ELECTROSTATIC VAPOR-AEROSOL GENERATOR
(FR) GENERATEUR ELECTROSTATIQUE DE VAPEUR/AEROSOL
Abstract
(EN)
The controlled generation of vapors and/or aerosols from liquids is accomplished by applying a regulated, DC voltage to a wick-like, porous emitter or generator assembly (16) which is supplied with the desired liquid (17) to be vaporized. An electrostatic charge is applied to the liquid by means of an electrode (5) positioned in contact with the wick assembly (8) and connected to the DC power supply. The wick assembly includes a porous, capillary material (10), such as braided fibers, through which the liquid passes to exposed, vapor emitting fiber tips (10c). The environment in a room, enclosed space of any kind, or a building may be aromatically conditioned and/or have its quality modified and enhanced by using a selected liquid conditioning substance such as an aromatic oil, deodorant, disinfectant, fumigant, fungicide, insecticide, or bactericide.
