How Do Fogging Machines Work?
Fogging machines (also known as foggers or fogger machines) release a fine fog of disinfectant and biocides into the air. This fog will typically remain airborne for approximately 10 minutes. After this time, the particles will fall onto surfaces within the room.
The disinfectant particles may also permeate crevices and soft materials, including upholstery and furnishings. These hard-to-reach areas often harbour pathogens which may not be killed by conventional surface-cleaning methods.
Types Of Disinfectant Foggers
There are 3 primary methods of fogging: Dry fogging, wet fogging and electrostatic fogging:
- Dry fogging typically involves particles of 10-15 microns in diameter
- Wet fogging involves larger particles – typically 20-30 microns
- Electrostatic fogging creates charged particles that actively cling to surfaces
Our ULV or cold fogging machines can be set to produce either wet or dry fog with a simple adjustment of the nozzle. Electrostatic fogging requires a more sophisticated machine – such as our Space Dragon 20 Electrostatic Fogging Machine Backpack.
Are Fogging Machines Effective Against Viruses?
Fogging can treat the air as well as both hard and soft surfaces. Because of this, fogging machines have become a popular tool in the fight against virus’s. The quick and minimally disruptive nature of the process makes fogging a go-to solution for businesses and organisations in a variety of sectors.
The precise effectiveness of disinfectant fogging depends upon the quality of the fogging machine and the type and strength of the disinfectant used. Certain formulations are effective against specific pathogens; others kill a broader spectrum of micro-organisms. Naturally, the usage instructions should be followed closely in order to achieve optimal results.
It’s important to understand that environmental conditions and a variety of other factors can influence the effectiveness of disinfectant fogging.
Why Buy A Fogging Machine From APT?
The pandemic has sparked a surge in demand for fogging machines. Unfortunately, much of this demand is being met by profiteers offering low-quality fogging machines for sale on platforms such as Amazon and eBay. Many of these sellers lack industry experience; many do not even hold insurance. Often, their disinfectant fogging machines are manufactured cheaply in China and may not comply with EU standards.

With Us, The Sale Is Just The Start
Most experts believe that the pandemic will continue deep into 2021. Uncertainty around the creation of a viable vaccine makes it impossible to predict an end date to the current crisis. Added to this, societies are likely to embrace more stringent sanitisation measures to better protect public safety – even after the pandemic has ended.
With all of this in mind, it’s vital to buy a fogger machine from a supplier capable of providing long-term support.
At APT, we pride ourselves on our exceptional standards of customer care – both before and after the sale. Working with consultant chemists enables us to offer expert guidance, and we are happy to provide individually tailored pre-sale advice based on our 30+ years of industry experience.
