Atomization (British English: atomisation) is conversion of bulk liquid into a spray or mist (i.e. collection of drops), often by passing the liquid through a nozzle. Despite the name, it does not imply that the particles are reduced to atomic sizes. British English (BrE) is a broad term used to distinguish the forms of the English language used in the United Kingdom from forms used elsewhere. ... Spray can refer to: A slang adjective used to describe something positively. ... Rocket Nozzle A nozzle is a mechanical device designed to control the characteristics of a fluid flow as it exits from an enclosed chamber into some medium. ...

An atomizer (British English: atomiser) is an atomization apparatus; carburetors, airbrushes, misters, and spray bottles are only a few examples of atomizers used ubiquitously. In internal combustion engines, fine-grained fuel atomization is instrumental to efficient combustion. Bendix-Technico (Stromberg) 1-barrel downdraft carburetor model BXUV-3, with nomenclature The carburetor, carburettor, or carburetter (see spelling differences), also called carb (in North America) or carbie (chiefly in Australia) for short, is a device that blends air and fuel for an internal combustion engine. ... Paasche F#1 Single Action External Mix Airbrush An airbrush is a small, air-operated tool that sprays various media including ink and dye, but most often paint by a process of atomization. ... This article or section does not cite any references or sources. ... Fuel is any material that is capable of releasing energy when its chemical or physical structure is changed or converted. ... A combustion reaction taking place in a igniting match Combustion or burning is a complex sequence of exothermic chemical reactions between a fuel and an oxidant accompanied by the production of heat or both heat and light in the form of either a glow or flames. ...

In some manufacturing process, fine powder is produced by spraying molten or dissolved materials through an atomizer and solidifying the droplets. Powder is a substance that has been crushed into very fine grains. ... In physics, melting is the process of heating a solid substance to a point (called the melting point) where it turns into a liquid. ... Dissolving table salt (NaCl) in water This article is about a chemical solution; for other uses of the term solution, see solution (disambiguation). ...

Laminated array of pressure swirl atomizers - Patent 6016969 (5152 words)
A further problem inherent with the structures used to manufacture known atomizers, and the manufacturing processes, is the inability to control the dimensions of the component elements of the atomizer precisely enough to allow the development of design rules to control the trajectory and distribution of the spray output.
Another advantage of the present invention is to provide an atomizer array which because of its fabrication method permits easy modification of the functional constituents of the atomizers, by means of a set of design rules, to create the spray pattern characteristics in each atomizer that are best suited to a specific application.
In a first embodiment of the invention, the laminated array of pressure swirl atomizers produces atomized liquid droplets 55 of liquid coolant 56 which are sprayed upon the surface of the electronic components 54 to be cooled and are contained completely within the sealed, fluid-tight housing 50.
