Aerosol Generating Device

US9861129B2 This patent relates to the manufacturing process of e-cigarettes.

The major component of an electronic cigarette for holding liquid and producing smoke is the atomizer(a tool that releases water, perfume, or other liquids in the form of a tiny spray), and care must be taken to ensure that neither the liquid nor the intended amount of smoke leak. However, the conventionally manufactured porous ceramic cannot account for both strength and porosity, making it unsuitable for use in electronic cigarettes. As a result, a method for making a porous ceramic with increased porosity and robustness is required, as is its application in electronic cigarettes.
