Are You Utilizing ULV Fogging?

ULV fogger Does your cleaning crew utilize ULV Foggers?

A ULV Fogger is a great resource for your maintenance or janitorial team. These foggers can be used for disinfecting, pest control, & mold elimination.

How Do they Work?

Foggers use air pressure to atomize liquid into a mist or fog. Once these droplets are dispersed, they'll remain airborne then settle on surfaces where the solution will do its job. 

What Solutions Work with Foggers?

The fogging solution is stored in a tank. Solutions will depend on the purpose of your fogger. It can be used for mosquito control, in which you'd use an insecticide. It can also be used for disinfecting, which a hospital grade solution would be best.  

Particle Sizes

ULV Foggers produce a very consistent particle size. Foggers allow you to adjust the particle size down to a Micron level. The Micron size will depend on what you're trying to fog and how big of a space you'll be covering. Most Foggers will come with instructions for best use. 

Are ULV Foggers the same as Thermal Foggers or Electrostatic sprayers?

No. Thermal foggers use heat to dispense dense fog. These droplets are non-adjustable, unlike ULV Foggers. Electrostatic sprayers uses positively charged ions to stimulate the solution. When the solution is dispersed they gravitate towards grounded objects. This allows the droplets to cover more territory.
