How Does a Disinfectant Fogger Work?
COVID-19 has opened a lot of people’s eyes to different types of disinfectants and all the
technological advancements that have happened in the disinfecting and sanitization field.
One of the most popular disinfection techniques these days is fogging, which has been
around for a long time but was previously used for different purposes, like the cosmetic fog
machines used in concerts and movies. However, recently, thanks to advancements in
technology, people have discovered what is perhaps the best use for fog machines, which is
disinfecting and sanitizing surfaces using fogging devices designed for this particular task.
Difference Between Disinfectant Foggers and Other Types of Disinfectant Devices
You might be wondering how a disinfectant fogger works and what is the difference between
these devices and other types of disinfecting equipment.
Disinfectant foggers work similarly to ordinary fogging machines but with some differences,
depending on the type. For instance, some fogging machines are thermal, meaning they heat
up the liquid in their tanks, and the fog that is released is considered a “dry fog” that will not
make the surfaces overly wet. A good example of thermal foggers is the Nano Atomizer.
Other types of fogging machines are known as ultra-low volume (ULV) cold foggers. What they
do is generate a very high volume of air so they can spread their fog longer and more
efficiently, making it great for larger spaces. An example of these devices is the Heavy Duty
ULV Fogger. Both types of devices are great for disinfecting surfaces and for airborne
disinfection. Plus, regardless of the disinfectant solution used, foggers give users the freedom
of not having to wipe or rinse surfaces after fogging because they turn liquid into particles
that are so tiny that can dry on their own.
