A humidifier is a household appliance that increases humidity (moisture) in a single room or in the entire house. There are point-of-use humidifiers, which are commonly used to humidify a single room.
Excessively low humidity may occur in hot, dry desert climates, or indoors in artificially heated spaces. In winter, when cold outside air is heated indoors, the humidity may drop as low as 10-20%. This low humidity can cause adverse health effects, by drying out mucous membranes such as the lining of the nose and throat, and can cause respiratory distress. The low humidity also can affect wooden furniture, causing shrinkage and loose joints or cracking of pieces. Books, papers, and artworks may shrink or warp and become brittle in very low humidity. In addition, static electricity may become a problem in conditions of low humidity, causing annoying static cling of textiles, and causing dust and small particles to stick stubbornly to electrically charged surfaces. In industrial environments, static electricity may cause difficulty in processing materials such as cloth, paper, or finely divided powders. Static electrical sparks can be quite hazardous, triggering explosions and fires in some industrial processes. Humidifiers may be used to treat the air in a small space or a room.
An ultrasonic humidifier uses a metal diaphragm vibrating at an ultrasonic frequency to create water droplets that silently exit the humidifier in the form of a cool fog. Ultrasonic humidifiers use a piezoelectric transducer to create a high frequency mechanical oscillation in a film of water. This forms an extremely fine mist of droplets about one micron in diameter, that is quickly evaporated into the air flow. Unlike the humidifiers that boil water, these water droplets will contain any impurities that are in the reservoir, including minerals from hard water (which then forms a difficult-to-remove sticky white dust on nearby objects and furniture). Any pathogens growing in the stagnant tank will also be dispersed in the air. Ultrasonic humidifiers should be cleaned regularly to prevent bacterial contamination from being spread throughout the air. Impeller and ultrasonic humidifiers do not selectively put pure water into the air, they also add any suspended material in the water, such as microorganisms and minerals. The amount of minerals and other materials can be greatly reduced by using distilled water, though no water is absolutely pure. Special disposable demineralization cartridges may also reduce the amount of airborne material, but the EPA warns, "the ability of these devices to remove minerals may vary widely." The mineral dust may have negative health effects. Wick humidifiers trap the mineral deposits in the wick; vaporizer types tend to collect minerals on or around the heating element and require regular cleaning with vinegar or citric acid to control buildup
Natural Solutions Environmental, Inc. is pleased to offer you the Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier!
This portable unit is ideal for household or office use, quickly humidifying areas up to 500 square feet. A two-gallon tank offers a long running time between refills, and a convenient alarm alerts you when the water level is low. The Ultrasonic Humidifiers uses ordinary tap water (We suggest a 25/75 mixture of Tap water (25%) and Distilled or RO Water (75%) to reduce and help prevent "White Dust") to maintain your desired atmospheric conditions. Order today and transform your personal space into a true comfort zone. Provides a Cool Mist INSTANTLY!
Operation is simple! Plug it in, fill the tank with water and push a button to turn it on for it's quiet operation. No sputtering or spitting droplets of water onto surrounding surfaces. Since there is no heat involved it is safe around children and pets. The visible vapor output and pilot light show it's working. Adjustable amount of vapor output and direction of flow make it more adaptable to a number of different environments. Low-water alarm is loud enough to be heard from another room. Uses ultrasonic frequency to create water mist. a metal diaphragm vibrating at an ultrasonic frequency creates water droplets that silently exit the humidifier in the form of a cool fog. Ultrasonic humidifiers use a piezo-electric transducer to create a high frequency mechanical oscillation in a body of water. Emitted is an extremely fine mist, about one micrometre in diameter, that is quickly absorbed into the air flow. Unlike the humidifiers that boil water, these water droplets contain any impurities that are in the reservoir, including minerals from hard water (which then forms a difficult to remove white dust on nearby objects and furniture), and pathogens growing in the stagnant tank. Ultrasonic Humidifiers should be cleaned regularly to avoid bacterial contamination which may be projected into the air.
