Atomization and The Science Behind It
Ever wonder how an atomizer works? We've mostly heard it from vapes and sprays, but what makes atomization so intriguing? Atomization is the process of reducing particles into atoms. These are extremely small in quantity. They can only be split into finer particles by using an atomizer. Thus, atomizer disinfectants are widely adopted by the healthcare industry for this reason. However, atomizers can have different processes, thus, producing different outcomes. For vapes, the atomizer produces smoke that comes out like a cigarette, while for the industrial method, it takes different types and differs in the transfer of energy. These commonly used atomizer types are pressure atomizers, centrifugal (wheel) atomizers, and pneumatic (two-fluid) atomizers. Over time, electrothermal (ET) atomizers have been developed.
DeVilbliss And Liquid Atomization
Among these types, the high-pressure atomizer using an atomizer nozzle is commonly used in a liquid-based fine spray. Going back to the 19th century, the first atomizer nozzle, which was called the aspirator nozzle during that time, was invented by Dr. Thomas Devilbliss of Toledo, Ohio. It was based on the Venturi effect, the decrease in fluid pressure when liquid flows through a constricted section of a tube.
Liquid atomization is the method in which a liquid coating coming out of a solid surface is constrained to sufficient surface interference such that the liquid gets separated from the surface or splits into microdroplets like a fog or mist in the gas phase. This kind of method is widely important in spray drying, spray cooling, preparation for nano-size powders, film coating, and making emulsions.
The Smaller The Droplets, The Better
The Atomizer's primary function is to efficiently produce isolated atoms in the gas phase. The important characteristics of the atomizer for spray drying are the uniformity and the homogeneity of the spray. Higher pressure or centrifugal speed reduces the outlet temperature by producing a greater number of droplets at a microdroplet size, thereby decreasing the final microcapsule particle size. The size of the droplets depends on the pressure and viscosity of the liquid, nozzle pressure, and speed. It also determines the particle size, the drying time, and how effective it is against germs and disinfectants.
The airDefender QDot Atomizer
What does this mean for the Qdot atomizer? Using high-pressure atomization, the intelligent Qdot atomizer spray gun gives better control over the size of the microdroplets it emits. When compared to commercial brands, the mist's microdroplet size is 8um. This size traps the dust, bacteria, and viruses more effectively, and kills them before they even spread, with less chance of landing or staying on the coated surface and the skin.
Paired with the award-winning, patented antibacterial green solution, it creates a powerful microdroplet coating that disinfects and adheres to the skin longer, giving longer-lasting germ block protection for 10+ hours. The blue-light sensor with its 3 pressure settings detects motion when you move and targets the area and the germs in it with wider and fuller disinfecting coverage of your surroundings, so you never miss a spot.
Using the same atomization process, the Qdot sanitizer dispenser emits a powerful mist that is convenient to take wherever you go. It has motion and infrared sensors for a no-touch quick burst of disinfection that is automatically turned off when no motion is detected. When combined with an antimicrobial solution, you are sanitized in seconds but protected for hours.

There are many hand sanitizer dispensers in the market today due to the pandemic. Clueless on what to choose? We'll dive into the right product for you. I know, right? With many sanitizer dispensers out there, you might be wondering what should you use? What is the ideal hand sanitizer dispenser? Would it be more effective if it's in the gel form, or water-based?
When it comes to shopping for healthcare products, you always look for the brand. The brand alone has an impact on the products you believed in. It's something you trust because it's already proven. It's worth knowing that there is an emerging brand that knows your skin better when it comes to the right antibacterial product and protection that you and your family needs.
Thank God it's spring! You know how the beautiful flower buds started to bloom after the chill winter. They're really a delight in the eyes. For all of us that have been in this pandemic, it's a breather to feel the sunshine again and go out without wearing those wool jackets and stuff especially the slippery slopes that you have to subdue during the snow — springtime!
If there is one sport that unites many Hong Kongers - it's their love for football. Hoi King Sports Association among many football clubs in Hong Kong is proactive in competing in the local football arena. They are actively competing in Hong Kong's Third, Second, and now First Division with successive winnings prompting them to apply in the Hong Kong Football Association (HKFA).
