Quartz Concentric Nebulizer C-Type 3mL/min 30psi

There’s a lot to unpack in that product name. So, just what does it all mean?  Let’s start at the beginning.

Concentric Nebulizers and How They Work

A concentric nebulizer has a central capillary that contains liquid, and an outer capillary that contains gas. The gas pulls the liquid into the gas stream, breaking it into a fine mist as it moves through. This type of nebulizer uses the Venturi Effect to produce an aerosol.

This is a quartz nebulizer, C-Type for High Solids. In addition, it is a Concentric Nebulizer, 1.0 lpm Ar, 30psi, 3mL/min., 30psi.

What is the Venturi Effect?

The Venturi effect is a phenomenon that occurs when a fluid’s pressure decreases as it speeds up while passing through a constricted area. The effect is named after its discoverer, the 18th-century Italian physicist Giovanni Battista Venturi.

The Venturi effect is an example of Bernoulli’s principle, which states that an increase in fluid velocity results in a decrease in static pressure. The effect uses the principles of continuity and conservation of mechanical energy.

C-Type for Finer Mist and Microflow

C-type nebulizers feature an internal sample capillary slightly recessed to the nebulizer nose. This design results in a more consistent aerosol and a higher tolerance for dissolved solids than the A Type. The C-type nebulizer operates at 1 L/min Argon at a pressure of 30 or 50 psi and sample uptakes of 1 mL/min, 2 mL/min, 3 mL/min, or Microflow (0.1 – 0.4 mL/min).
