Micro diffusion electric diffuser (nebulisation)
Composition of an electric diffuser
Regardless of the model, an electric diffuser consists of two main parts:
1 - Electric pump or motor
Except for rare exceptions, all engines are based on the principle of a membrane pump type aquarium pump or more recently a turbine pump.
The strengths of the membrane pumps are:
- Low cost
- Very simple
- Exceptional life
This pump will provide the compressed air necessary for the propulsion of essential oil. Its flow rate is measured in litre/hour. The more powerful the pump will be, the more important the diffusion will be.
2 - Glassware
If technically, all pumps are similar (except noise and flow), all glassware are not identical.
The GIFFARD system or diffusion nozzle must be perfectly calibrated to get the maximum performance. It is the very heart of the diffuser since it will transform the essential oil into millions of small particles. Glassware can have various forms such as those we offer (standard, amphora, round) but this does not alter the quality of the diffusion or the principle.
It can also be equipped with a silencer. This tip is not an indispensable element but it allows to remove the noise of the diffusion and to avoid having a spot of essential oils on the shelf above the diffuser.
How does an electric diffuser work?
The broadcast takes place in two times:
1 - Pulverization of essential oils
Compressed air from the engine will create by depression the rise of essential oils and power the Giffard system.
The essential oil, meeting the compressed air, will be propelled on the glassware and burst into micro particle of essential oils. This process is called micro-diffusion. For handicrafts, this process looks like a paint gun (transformation of a very fine particle liquid). This principle is also found for pear perfume sprayers.
2 - Dissemination of essential oils
If the spraying principle is the same as a paint pistol, the comparison stops there since, after bursting on glassware, essential oils are are transformed into a thin fog loaded with millions of microparticles.
This "nuage", which has become much lighter than the air, will come out by the collar of glassware and spread into the atmosphere.
Unlike the ideas received, it is not steam coming out, but a fog that was created "mechanically" and not thermally.
