An Israeli inventor has patented a revolutionary air humidifier inspired by toothbrush technology

The Israeli inventor claims his revolutionary humidifier is cheaper, cleaner and more efficient.

Aryeh Tench claims it has only one moving part and is much cheaper, cleaner and more efficient than any machine currently available.

Hot countries use air conditioners. Cold countries use humidifiers. Hundreds of millions of homes in northern Europe, the northern United States and elsewhere use them to add moisture to the air that dries out with heating.

But appliances on the market today breed bacteria and mold, create condensation, and are a nightmare to clean.

In addition, they are expensive to operate, especially commercial models widely used in greenhouses, industries and refrigerated food transport.

Tench thinks he’s found a simple solution that could revolutionize humidifier manufacturing.

Today’s machines boil water to create steam or use fans or other methods to evaporate the water.

Your machine has only one moving part: a rod fitted with 6,000 superfine nylon filamentssimilar to the bristles of a toothbrush.

As they spin, the filaments vibrate at high speeds, up to 80 km/h, breaking water into droplets much smaller than those produced by any other method.

It works almost instantly, evaporating water in a hundredth of a second, in a device that looks like an air conditioner. If you bend those filaments and let them break, all the energy you put into them comes out stirring those droplets at a very high speed.

He set out to find a way to embed thousands of filaments just a millimeter apart, so they could all vibrate individually and break water into the smallest particles imaginable. And this “simple” step is the key to your new humidifier.

Tench has persisted where companies have not. He was successful and has now patented his invention.

Demonstration of a prototype machine in action, able to pump dry air with 75% humidity. That is to say the amount of water contained in the air compared to the maximum amount possible at a given temperature.

A standard humidifier expels this mist. Put a plate in front and you’ll see water everywhere. The water fills the room and sticks to everything, and the infection grows and is dangerous. Ours comes out dry as a bone. There is no water or anything to see. It’s just air.

We have a cool dry humidifier and no one else has one. I made a presentation about it to the Israeli Ministry of Agriculture and the head of the department wrote me a WhatsApp. He said to me: “if your machine does what you say, it will be very valuable”.

We invented and patented one of the best methods of atomization (breaking a liquid into small droplets) in history, the Snapp process.

This new process uses a previously unknown source of energy to break liquid into smaller droplets, which is faster, cleaner and cheaper than any other method.

It took us five years to perfect the product and invent a manufacturing process to build the core technology.

We are currently designing the first alpha prototypes of a humidifier that will be faster, cleaner, cheaper, lighter, smaller and more efficient than any humidification equipment on the market.

Tench says people buy 30 million tiny humidors a year, so there’s clearly a demand. But they don’t produce enough humidity for a single room, let alone an entire house.

They can only humidify the whole house by bringing the water close to boiling, and that costs $100 a month.

Industrial humidifiers are used for growing mushrooms and other plants, preserving produce, manufacturing paper and electronics, and winemaking.

He says his machine will cost as little as $150 to buy and it will work like a 10W light bulb, which works out to just $4 a month. He thinks the first models, made in Israel, will go on sale in about 18 months.

We find that they are much more efficient, much faster and surprisingly cleaner than the others. We are therefore going to tackle these two markets, the consumer market and the industrial market.

We are at the beginning of the financing rounds. We’re not AI or cybersecurity, so the fundraiser hasn’t reached us.
