1. A disposable atomizing mist infuser for infusing an atomized mixture into an operating, pressurized, closed-loop system, said atomizing mist infuser comprises:

  • (a) a capsule constructed and arranged to have a reservoir, a sealable inlet means and a sealable outlet means, wherein said sealable inlet and outlet means are in open communication with said capsule reservoir, said capsule reservoir being constructed and arranged to hold a predetermined amount of a liquid material, and wherein said sealable capsule outlet means being constructed and arranged;

    (i) to substantially prevent the liquid material held in said capsule reservoir from flowing through said sealable capsule outlet means when said outlet means is unsealed and when the liquid material is subjected to normal gravitational forces, and(ii) to atomize the liquid material held in said capsule reservoir as the liquid material is forced, under pressure, to pass through said sealable capsule outlet means when said outlet means is unsealed;

    (b) means for coupling said sealable capsule inlet means to an externally available high pressure system carrier fluid supply; and

    (c) means for coupling said sealable capsule outlet means to said operating, pressurized closed-loop system.
