What is Fogging?

Fogging is a means of disinfecting larger areas with a fogging machine which sprays the disinfectant in a very fine mist. There are two main types of fogger, Thermal (steam) fogger and cold or Ultra Low Volume (ULV) fogger. To spray antimicrobial treatments cold fogging is recommended.

What are Cold Foggers?

Cold Foggers are a device you can use to fight pest problems both indoors and outdoors. You can also use them to get rid of moulds, unpleasant odours and for sanitising purposes.

A cold fogger is “cold” because it’s the opposite of a thermal fogger. Cold foggers don’t use heat to vaporize the fogging liquid and turn it into a fog. Instead, they use cold spraying methods, which, in most cases, use high amounts of air pressure to spray the fogging liquid out in tiny particles.

The most popular type of cold fogger is the ultra-low volume (ULV) fogger. Most of the time, ULV foggers are considered the same as cold foggers.

How do they work

Inside the casing of a cold fogger is an electric motor. This is the main part of a ULV fogger since it sprays the liquid out as small particles. The power of the airflow will depend on the power of the motor.

Most cold foggers work using electricity. This means that you must have a power outlet near the area to be fogged or an extension cord that can reach the target area. Electricity powers the electric motor and without it, the fogger won’t work.

When you turn the fogger on, the electric motor will pump the fogging solution out of the tank. It then sprays the liquid out through a special nozzle located on the front of the fogger. This nozzle turns the foggIng solution into small particles. 

Particle Size

The advantage that ULV foggers have over thermal foggers is that they allow you to control the particle size. On standard ULV foggers, you’ll have the option of setting the particle size from 10–50 microns. You can adjust the droplet size a ULV fogger produces by either turning a flow valve or pushing a button on the fogger, depending on the model you have. 20microns are recommended for Brytalife antimicrobial fogging.

Higher airflow will produce larger particles while lower airflow will produce smaller particles. This is definitely useful if you need to fog in different areas.

You might want to use smaller particles indoors since they stay in the air for longer and can reach smaller gaps and holes in the walls and floor as well as the spaces behind furniture and other tight areas.

Benefit of Fogging over normal spraying

Fogging penetrates normally inaccessible areas resulting in a more thorough stericidal decontamination producing droplets as small as 5 microns which reduce condensation, surface wetting, and possible corrosion. Area coverage is more uniform and the fog penetrates cracks, crevices, ventilation systems and other challenging areas like high corners and underneath furniture.

Wiping down surfaces can actually spread germs, especially when only one cloth is used to clean all surfaces. ... On the other hand, fogging kills the germs where they lie and also prevents them being transferred from one place to another (known as cross contamination) due to its automated 

Where is Fogging used

ULV Cold Fogging has been used for a number of years mainly in the food preparation factories to combat pathogens, mould and mildew. Today with so many business premises having been closed because of Covid-19 it is more important than ever to fog your facility on a regular basis to avert the build-up of these pathogens and fogging prior to reopening should be an essential part of your strategy to maximise protection for both staff and customers alike. 

 

Fogging is regularly used in the following applications:

  • Food processing plant, restaurant

  • Transportation (cruise ship, airplane, cargo container, transport, vehicle)

  • Pharmaceutical packaging

  • Hospital, School, Daycare

  • Veterinary clinic, GP clinic

  • Home and commercial building,

  • Pest Control

  • Animal husbandry

What should I use to disinfect

Brytalife surface coatings contain a unique molecule that attaches to the surface so that the coating can continue keeping a surface protected against pathogens until the coating is finally abraided off. Brytalife technology represents the next generation of long term, durable surface protection that's safe for the environment, people and pets. BrytaSpray is perfect to use with fogging and misting machines and is ideal for commercial and residential premises for disinfecting, sterilization, epidemic prevention, air purification, disease prevention, pest control, animal husbandry, agriculture and can be effective in homes, offices, schools, hospitals, stations, airports, markets, large and medium sized community health centres, aged care facilities, your local gym and all kinds of cars and commercial vehicles.

All areas can be treated by using cold fogging method including under tables, chairs, desks, all children’s toys and we recommend that cupboards be left open during fogging. Fogging method can help improve productivity and efficiency compared to manual wiping with disinfectant. (Blind spot areas are not achievable by manual wiping). For your safety, always refer to MSDS before using any products.

BrytaSpray is food safe, using fogging method on all surfaces deodorizing & sanitizing with our safe, non-toxic, alcohol free non-flammable, water based new technology sanitisers and antimicrobial products. Our products have been independently tested and our Hospital Grade surface spray formula is TGA approved.

BrytaSpray treatment is most effective on recently cleaned surfaces and will provide ongoing protection against bacteria, viruses, mould and mildew up to 7 days. Following treatment, surfaces can still be wiped down with warm soapy water to remove any debris without affecting the efficacy of the hygiene treatment.
