What is a fogging machine and how does it work?

Fogging machines are versatile pieces of kit that use a mist spray to apply a chemical solution to restrict the growth of mould or odour control. It is becoming increasingly popular as a means of sanitising surfaces.


Foggers use high pressure to create a mist or ‘fog’ which is applied to the targeted area, the spray is being moderated by a manual valve to ensure the optimum effect. Depending on the type of fogger being used, it is possible to spray up to 12 metres, enough to cover a large room. The fog can reach into the corners of the room and difficult areas and may also penetrate porous surfaces.


Using fogging machines to combat COVID-19

Foggers are effective for sanitising; something which has become a massive requirement as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.


By using an appropriate formula, fogging can kill a lot of pathogenic viruses in under just 5 minutes, leaving surfaces clean and safe for us to use again, and is safe to use in medical surgeries, hospitals and even food preparation areas.


Other uses for fogging machines

Food industry fogging

Foggers can be used both inside and out in many situations in agriculture or the food process industry where sanitising is vital. Foggers are important in environments such as the dairy industry, the pig industry and hatcheries for the chicken business, where any pollution of the workplace would be costly in time and money. Fogging machines are also crucial in sanitising high-risk food preparation areas where food, either processed or fresh is about to go to the market and where the appropriate level of cleanliness is essential.


Fogging machines for doctors’ surgeries and hospitals

Foggers have been used for quite some time in hospitals and medical environments for infection control, particularly for decontamination of reusable medical equipment and as part of a process to clean and disinfect vacated wards. Sanitising is vital in medical environments but has become even more essential in light of the Coronavirus pandemic. Foggers can assist medical and hospital cleaning teams as part of their new measures to protect the NHS, it’s staff, and patients. To be honest fogging is a relatively quick process, it is suitable for regular application and the treated areas and equipment can be brought back into service straight away.
