Abstract

ABSTRACT

A device to atomize medication (water) molecules to sizes ranging from 5 to 20 µm. This is most easily achieved by modifying existing jet nebulizers to create particle sizes to our specification.


Problem statement

PROBLEM STATEMENT

The goal of this project is to develop a device that can selectively produce liquid particles in the range of 5 to 20 µm. This device should safely and accurately produce the particles with precision of  10% to the desired mean.


Background

Background

  • There is a lot of research available on spray technology

  • Most medical atomization devices are designed to target the lower respiratory system.

  • Particle size affects the location of distribution, particles smaller than 5 µm tend to bypass the larynx.


Motivation

MOTIVATION

Available devices tend to be quite complex, and expensive.

It would be ideal to select a specific particle size to analyze the different effects it has on the larynx.

Conduct research to determine which way to atomize particles is the best.


Product design specification

Product Design Specification

  • Dispense liquid (water) particles of sizes ranging from 5-20 µm

  • Portable

  • Simple design, easy to use.

  • Reliable to ± 10% for 6 months or 400 uses

  • Adaptable as an inhaler to channel medication directly to patient.

  • Should be ergonomically pleasing to patients


Variables effecting particle size

Variables effecting Particle Size

  • A larger orifice creates larger particle sizes.

  • Higher pressure creates smaller particle sizes.

Large Orifice

Small Orifice


Design alternatives

Design Alternatives

  • Modification of Salter Labs Nebulizer

  • Modification of Pari LC Plus Nebulizer

  • Pressurize liquid though restricted flow.


Salter labs 8900 nebulizer

Salter Labs 8900 Nebulizer

  • Nebulizes at 7 L/min in horizontal or vertical position

  • Large surface area provided by convex cone

  • Designed to maximize output

  • Residual volume 1.7 mL

  • Low cost of $2.99


Pari lc plus nebulizer

Pari LC Plus Nebulizer

  • 2 valves to deliver medication

  • Maximizes aerosol delivery, minimizes waste

  • Delivers 20 L/min in 6.5 to 8.5 minutes

  • Residual volume 1.4 mL

  • Cost $14.95

Pressurize liquid through restricted flow

Pressurize liquid through restricted flow.

  • Depends on mechanical force of pressure

  • Depends on size of orifice of spray valve

  • Effective differences require pressure gradients on the scale of several hundred PSI


Malvern particle size detector

Malvern Particle Size Detector

  • Used to measure particle sizes of sprays, dry powders suspensions, and liquids

  • Can measure particles from 0.1µm to 1mm

  • Can take a reading once every .4 milliseconds


Design matrix

Chosen design pari lc plus nebulizer

Chosen Design: Pari LC Plus Nebulizer

  • Has a more simple design, most easily modified

  • Lower residual volume

  • Higher output


Results

Results


Future work salter 8900 nebulizer

Future work- Salter 8900 Nebulizer

  • Baffle shears liquid

  • File down baffle

  • Larger particles are able to pass
