The Collison Nebulizer, manufactured by CH Technologies, has long been the recognized technique for the aerosolization of various liquids in a wide array of applications.
The method of aerosolization utilized by the Collison Nebulizer relies on the Bernoulli principle. When air moves at high velocity through the nebulizer’s small orifice, it in turn, suctions liquid from the nebulizer’s jar and breaks it apart into small droplets. This atomized liquid is then impacted against the walls of the jar and then generates even smaller droplets. Larger particles are removed from the aerosol by specially designed traps or a curved outlet tube.
The Collison Nebulizer has a glass jar standard; break resistant polycarbonate, ULTEM, and polysulfone jars are optionally available in order to provide the utmost protection from accidental exposure due to high stress or temperature conditions.
