Thermal Fogger, Everything You Need to Know About It
The thermal fogger is a wonderful technology that has been used for a long time. Now it is
helping during this pandemic by protecting us by using heat to vaporize disinfectant,
producing a dry fog to kill viruses.
Historically, the thermal fogger had been used by farmers and households for the process and
purpose of killing insects, but now the same technology is being used to fight and kill viruses
It should be noted that this fogger machine can create a tremendous amount of fog
depending on the type and size of the fogger. It can be used in different locations and
scenarios and even for mosquito control.
The Thermal Fogger: Then & Now
As mentioned above, thermal foggers were often used for controlling the mosquitoes, but
with the Coronavirus outbreak, the same fogger machines are used to disinfect and clean
surfaces and areas from viruses and germs.
There are three types of these kinds of thermal foggers available in the market: propane, fuel,
and electric foggers. All of these use heat to vaporize the fogging solution that it contains. It
can create a dense cloud of fog that can penetrate hard-to-reach areas such as the grass,
treetops, and even the shrubberies.
A thermal fogger contains a pump that is used to send the solution from the container via
heat assembly. The person who is operating it initiates the pump by pressing the trigger.
Propane foggers are known to have a socket for the gas cylinder of propane right on the back
of the fogger machine. Fuel foggers have a large tank on the side of the machine. Finally,
electric foggers have a power cord, which requires to be plugged into the socket for the
fogger to work. This type of thermal fogger is not cordless like the rest, unfortunately, but are
ideal for disinfecting purposes.
Thermal foggers, such as the Nano Atomizer, produce tiny particles that can range from 0.5 to
50 microns, and the majority are less than 20 microns. Particles as small as thes
