ULV Fogging Information

WHAT IS ULV FOGGING?

ULV fogging equipment is used predominately for the application of disinfectants, biocides, fungicides and pesticides. ULV fogging machines generate a fog or mist formed of Ultra Low Volume (ULV) droplets between 5-50 microns (μm) in diameter. Studies have shown that droplets of this size are ideal to tackle pathogens, vector carriers and pests. In addition formulations can be applied in concentrations of 10-90% and at flow rates of up to 0.5 litres per minute (30 litres per hour) making them more efficient in the Volume Median Diameter (VMD) spectrum.

DISINFECTION

Pathogenic microbes such as virus, fungi and pathogenic bacteria are the main cause of airborne or direct contact diseases affecting animals and humans. Studies show the application of disinfectants and biocides via aerosol or fogging significantly reduce the number of viable infectious pathogens. Foggers produce micro droplets that float in the air for around 10 minutes after application, reaching the most inaccessible parts where conventional cleaning or spraying can’t reach.

VIRUS

Influenza Viral infections make up around one third of cases of food poisoning in developed countries. Examples of these viruses include the Norovirus and Rotovirus. Other common viral infections include cold viruses and Seasonal influenza (the flu). An increasing concern due to a growing global population are animal or bird to human transmissions such as H1N1 (swine flu), and H5N1 strain of bird flu. Disinfection of surfaces using a fogger is essential to stop the spread of these infections.

PATHOGENIC BACTERIA

Ecoli Pathogenic bacteria contribute to many illnesses and infections whether food borne, water borne or air borne. These include diseases such as E-coli, MRSA, C. difficile, Campylobacter, Legionella and Salmonella. Unhygienic food preparation, water storage and air conditioning systems can harvest as well as spread these diseases. Bacteria such as MRSA and C. difficile are especially troublesome in hospitals, prisons and nursing homes, where patients with open wounds, and weakened immune systems are at greater risk of infection.

Surface disinfection on a gentle HOCl basis

Our fast-acting, non-alcoholic surface disinfectant based on the effective principle of hypochlorous acid. It can be applied easily and is effective without cleaning.

✔️ alcohol-free, aldehyde-free and fragrance-free

✔️ not irritating to eyes and mucous membranes

✔️ Acts against bacteria, viruses and fungi in accordance with   E N14476

✔️ 100% naturally degradable

✔️ may get into the water and food cycle

✔️ pH neutral & not cytotoxic

✔️ not subject to labeling as dangerous goods

How our surface disinfection works

Our surface disinfection washes around unicellular microorganisms. In this case engages the hypochlorous acid  to the cell wall of microorganisms and germs and increases its permeability . The hypotonic solution ensures that more water flows into the cells of the germs to compensate for the osmotic gradient.

Osmolysis occurs: the cells of the pathogens burst due to the increasing internal pressure
