Procurement Challenges in Vibrating Mesh Technology for Aroma Diffusion

Vibrating Mesh Technology has been widely used in medical devices, but its application in the fragrance diffusion sector has been very limited. This whitepaper talks about the procurement aspects of implementing this technology for fragrance diffusion. It also illustrates the advantage of using this technology over other available technologies in the market. There are various medical devices in the market used for drug delivery purposes using different technologies which break the particle into micro granules for even distribution into the lungs. MDI's and DPI's have become outdated as nebulizers provide more effective way for drug delivery. Use of jet nebulizers is declining due to the fact that the particle size distribution in case of jet nebulizers is uneven. Ultrasonic nebulizer is the most upcoming and advanced technology in the drug delivery space as they provide lot more even particle distribution.

Ultrasonic nebulizers can be classified as: Atomizing type Vibrating mesh type Vibrating mesh type nebulizers are one of the best in its segment as they give out very fine mist with an even particle size distribution. Hence our focus in this whitepaper is to bring out the procurement challenges while procuring the basic components for vibrating mesh nebulizer. The key components of a vibrating mesh nebulizer are: Piezoelectric Ceramic Plate Micro Mesh Plate The key procurement challenges which arrive while procuring these components are to identify and screen the potential suppliers capable of manufacturing these components with specifications which suits the design of the product.
