  • Patent number: 10045562
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to an inhaler component for the formation of a vapor-air mixture and/or a condensation aerosol by evaporation of a liquid material and optionally the condensation of the formed vapor. In one example, the inhaler component includes an electrical heater to evaporate liquid, a capillary wick that together with the electrical heater defines a compound structure that supplies liquid to the electrical heater, and a carrier supporting the compound structure. The carrier makes electrical contact with the electrical heater, and at least partially defines a portion of a capillary gap. The capillary gap is in fluid communication with the wick and automatically supplies liquid to the compound structure. Internal and external sides or faces of the carrier (relative to the compound structure) can define portions of the capillary gap.
