Efficacy that can be proven
To say there is a lot of misinformation regarding the various types of fogging/misting devices flooding the marketplace since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic would be putting it mildly then add in the theory of electrostatic sprayers and a mix of uv lighting systems makes decisions take longer then required.
These devices have long been used for pesticide, odor control, or other wide-area spraying applications. Recently, however, many companies have been using these devices to disinfect, spraying formulas that are Din approved or registered for use with foggers/misters within specific dilutions.
Defogging the Facts
With few exceptions, fogging and misting devices if properly operated can be used to spray disinfectants, on key is the selection of your solution largely because there are few disinfectants that have been Din-approved for use with this equipment. In fact, the Din approved of disinfectants deemed effective against the SAR-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19, includes very few disinfectants approved for use in foggers, misters, or vaporizers so ensuring the proper product is crucial.
Lifting the Fog
Below are some foggers/misters along with a few of their key attributes that make most of thema second choice the the LFOG Zero touch tech selections we offer thru COS Supply.
These produce droplets ranging in size from 25 to 100 microns and are mostly used in professional deodorizing applications.
Ultra-Low Volume (UVL) Foggers
Usually made to generate particles in the 8 to 15 micron range that can remain in the air for five to six hours, these models are mostly used in pest control or professional deodorizing applications and for hard-to-reach areas, such as ductwork and crawl spaces.
Pressure Regulated Foggers
These comprise the largest class of odor-control application equipment and come in several models:
- Pump spray
- Airless paint sprayer
- Fog machine.
Designed for pesticide or deodorant applications, once these are opened the vapor continues to be released until the can is empty.
Using heat, these change liquids into droplets as small as 0.5 to 2 microns. They produce a high-volume fog that can stay airborne for hours. With the proper pairing this allows for a stable and safe environment that has a proven efficacy ensure 100% complete full coverage of your space. This is the reason why after research and understanding we have moved into this product and believe it to be superior and safer product over and above the other systems available to the the public at this time.
