How Ultrasonic Vaporizers Work


Ultrasonic vaporizers are devices that, like humidifiers, produce moisture. They differ in the way they generate mist. These products come in a variety of shapes and sizes, some large enough to treat the air in a commercial building, others designed for use in a single room.


  • Ultrasonic vaporizers use a component known as a "piezoelectric tranducer" to convert electricity into vibrations. These vibrations agitate the water stored in the vaporizer's reservoir. Because of the nature of the vibrations and the properties of water, this process produces water vapor.


  • Unlike the steam produced by warm mist humidifiers, the vapor produced by an ultrasonic device remains cool when released into the air. Ultrasonic vaporizers are often quieter than warm mist humidifiers and do not require a period of time to "warm up" prior to producing mist.


  • Some models of ultrasonic vaporizer also come equipped with optional heating elements, for users who prefer a warm mist. Other common options are components to disinfect or demineralize the water and variable mist output settings.
