Testing will include fire suppression events in a representative spacecraft atmosphere and measuring the mist droplet
properties that are key to this technology s effectiveness.
EHD is an electronic nebulization process in which an electrical field is applied to a conductive liquid leading to the formation of a soft mist droplet
The difference between a mist and a fog system is that a mist droplet
is larger than a fog droplet.
Holm developed a breather device - called the impactor - that captures oil mist droplets
in crankcase gaseous emissions.
Steam, mist, and heavy mist droplets
containing contaminants are sent to a demisting chamber, where the mists are centrifuged and contaminated droplets are separated and discharged, while only pure steam is cooled and condensed into ultra-clean water.
Generex's strategy is to encapsulate large-molecule pharmaceuticals (such as insulin) using a proprietary micellar formulation that serves to protect the drug from enzymatic degradation while at the same time enhancing the penetration of the mist droplets
into the buccal cavity (inner cheek walls).
