Atomization is the process of turning a liquid into small droplets. Atomization products have become very common in life. Humidifiers, facial steamers, mist generators, medical atomizers, etc., are all well-known practical tools that have greatly helped our lives.
With the development of science and technology, the atomization methods have become more and more diversified. Such as high-pressure gas atomization, ultrasonic atomization, microwave heating atomization, resistance heating atomization, and so on. As the “heart” of atomization technology, the atomization core determines the atomization effect and experience.
Nowadays, ceramics are energetic in the field of atomization technology and become the standard for high-quality atomization cores. So, what is the principle of ceramic vaping? What are the advantages of ceramic materials? In this article, we will lead you through the mysteries.
Why use ceramics as materials?
Ceramics are not the only materials used in atomizing cores in electronic atomizers.
Fiber rope, organic cotton, non-woven fabric and other materials have been used to make atomizing cores. The ceramic used in the atomizing core is not the same as the ceramic commonly used on the dining table. It is a special kind of “porous ceramic”.
This is a photo of tens of thousands of times magnification of ceramics. In a ceramic core, there are about hundreds of millions of micro-nano holes like this. The combination of a small piece of ceramic material and a metal film throughout the micropores constitutes the core component of the electronic atomizer.
The main component of the ceramic atomizing core comes from nature. After high-temperature sintering, many fine micropores are formed inside, and the average pore diameter is equivalent to one-fifth of the hair.
These small micropores are the key to the stable fluid conduction and lock function of the ceramic atomizing core. Due to surface tension and capillary action, the liquid can penetrate into the atomizing core uniformly and be adsorbed on the surface of the atomizing core.
Similar to activated carbon, porous ceramic materials have strong adsorption properties and have very good biocompatible properties. This is also one of the key factors in choosing ceramics as the carrier. Similar materials have many applications in daily life, such as filters for water purifiers, refrigerator deodorants, facial masks, toothpaste and other daily necessities.
What are the advantages of ceramic atomizing cores?
Compared with atomizing cores composed of other materials, such as heating wires and fiber ropes, heating wires and organic cotton, the characteristics of ceramic atomizing cores are: during heating, its temperature will rise faster and temperature uniformity will be better, the temperature range is controlled more accurately. This can greatly reduce the production of aldehydes and ketones during use, thereby ensuring the safety of the use process.
FEELM, a subsidiary of Smoore, is a technology brand focusing on the development of ceramic atomizing cores. FEELM together with ALD Silmo ceramic core is composed of two parts: ceramic and heating film. The ceramic is made into a bowl-like structure after high temperature sintering. The heating film is designed to be S-shaped attached to the surface of the ceramic. The atomizing core is the core component of the atomizer. During the working process, the heating film heats the liquid to form a mist by uniformly generating heat.
The heating temperature of the atomizing core directly affects the suction experience of the electronic atomizer. FEELM ceramic atomizing core can effectively avoid local carbonization through uniform heating. Combined with the liquid conductivity of ceramics, it can effectively reduce the “scorch core” industry pain point.
In fact, atomization technology has long been used in medical and other fields, such as asthma treatment. During conventional atomization, a wide range of particle size distributions are produced. Among them, particles larger than 2.5 μm will be deposited in the human respiratory tract and oral cavity, and particles smaller than 1 μm will be inhaled into the human lungs, and the active ingredients can be quickly absorbed by the human body. At present, the atomized particles produced by the FEELM ceramic atomizing core are generally smaller than 1 μm, which can bring better taste and stronger satisfaction.
Ceramic atomization technology not only brings users a better atomization experience, but also allows people to see a wider range of application scenarios. Today, Smoore’s research institute has cooperated with many R & D institutions around the world to expand more atomization fields such as medical and health.
Therefore, electronic atomizer is not the only place where the ceramic atomization core is used. As atomization technology continues to mature, more new applications based on atomization research may soon enter our lives.
