Capillary Force Vaporizer Technology – Innovative Patented Technology
The FDA-cleared Capillary Force Vaporizer (CFV) technology converts water to vapor without the presence of boiling water to provide safe, instant, and germ-free steam. And the vapor comes in a unique one micron drop size to help reach far into your sinuses, mouth, throat and lungs.
MyPurMist features this CFV technology that is housed in the base unit of the device. CFV devices use engineered ceramic materials to turn water into vapor instantly, efficiently and without heating a reservoir. CFV technology was originally developed for use in hospital ICUs for mechanical ventilator humidifiers. These devices are also used in acute care settings to humidify high flow oxygen systems.
The patented CFV is a thin film, high surface area boiler that combines two natural phenomena: capillary force and phase transition. By inducing phase transition in a capillary environment, the CFV imparts pressure onto the expanding gas and ejects it with significant force.
