What is a Cold Fogger?
Cold Fogger is a machine excellent for indoor and outdoor sanitation. You can also use it to get rid of molds, unpleasant odors, and for disinfecting purposes.
A cold fogger is “cold” because it’s the opposite of a thermal fogger. It doesn’t use heat to vaporize the fogging liquid and turn it into a fog. Instead, it uses cold spraying methods using 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 does it work?
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.
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 5–50 microns. You can adjust the droplet size produced by either turning a flow valve or pushing a button on the fogger, depending on the model you have.
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 spaces.
For outdoors, you’ll want to use a larger droplet size of 50 microns or more. Even a small breeze can blow smaller droplets away from the target area with ease. Larger particles, on the other hand, will reach the target area even in slightly windy conditions.
