How Does An Ultrasonic Humidifier Work ?

Basically, humidifier is a device used to raise the moisture contents of the area it is installed at. Of late, it has become the need of every household as soon as the winter season starts. In winters, will the fall in temperature, humidity also falls and we start feeling the effect of dryness on our skin. Even, furniture and other wooden articles show the signs of cracks.

To bypass this damage, a humidifier can be used to artificially raise the humidity. Looking into the need for humidifiers, manufacturers produce numerous types of air humidifying appliances. Four of them are evaporation type, vaporizer, impeller and ultrasonic humidifiers.

Based on the fact, that each and everything has both the plus and minus points, same is the case with all above listed appliance types. However, the article discusses about the working and features of the ultrasonic humidifiers.

Unlike standard humidifiers, ultrasonic humidifiers comprise of three main parts: ultrasonic sensor, transducer and a metal diaphragm. Also, it uses a wick or a fan to distribute the moistened air into the room.

The very purpose of the sensor is to form the water droplets and then disperse in the air. An extremely fine mist, about one micron in diameter that is quickly absorbed into the air flow is generated. Moreover, ultrasonic humidifiers create instantaneous humidity and don't have to wait for a heating element to boil the water.

Transducer is a device that is used to convert one form of energy into another. Here, the electrical energy is converted into ultrasonic waves. These are very high frequency waves, about 20,000 hertz, which are not perceptible to human ears.

The action of a vibrating metal diaphragm that is again, above 20,000 Hz, so causes the formation of water droplets, which are expelled by the system. So, we can say that, ultrasonic humidifiers are silent and do not produce any hum.

However, there are some downsides associated with the appliance. Such humidifiers may disperse, along with water droplets, any bacteria present in the water out into the air. The water in an ultrasonic humidifier should be changed frequently to help prevent potentially irritating or dangerous contamination. Also, the timely cleaning of the appliance is very essential.
