When it comes to disinfecting your facility, one of the most time-saving tools to have in your cleaning arsenal is a sprayer (or multiple sprayers, depending on the size of your facility). In light of the emerging disinfecting needs across the world, we worked with our vendors this spring to quickly bring to market our Zogics Disinfectant Atomizing Sprayer.
What's an atomizing sprayer (and why do I need one)?
Perfect for larger commercial settings, such as fitness centers, educational facilities, healthcare spaces, and business facilities, an atomizing sprayer utilizes ULV (Ultra Low Volume) cold atomizing technology. ULV breaks the disinfectant liquid into tiny nanoparticles and disperses them on to any item or area. With nanoparticles, there is no need to wipe down your surfaces. Simply spray on and let the disinfectant solution dry, killing 99.99% of any pathogen, including SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 (when used with any List-N disinfectant like Hypochlorous Acid Disinfectant ). Our atomizing sprayer has the ability to thoroughly disinfect 8,000-16,000 square feet an hour!
In addition, ULV atomizing can be adjusted to allow for an optimal droplet size based on the surface that is being disinfected. For example, if disinfecting different surfaces in a commercial space, a trained technician will adjust the droplet size for maximum dwell time and efficacy. Restroom surfaces may require a larger Micron size, where spraying on mirrors or a copier may be a smaller Micron size.
One other area of distinction: atomizing units are agnostic when it comes to the disinfecting solution that an applicator chooses to use. Unlike other types of disinfecting sprayers, they allow the user to apply their choice of EPA registered disinfectant, offering maximum versatility.
What's the difference between an atomizing sprayer and an electrostatic sprayer?
The key difference: any EPA registered disinfectant can be used with an atomizing sprayer. We pulled together a brief summary:
