Fogging with Proven Results

COVID-19 brought what were once considered industrial disinfection strategies into familiar daily locations.

Lafferty Foggers have long been used throughout the food and beverage industry to maintain sanitary production areas and prevent cross-contamination.

COVID-19 brought what were once considered industrial disinfection strategies into familiar daily locations, as preventing the spread of the virus became a critical consideration for businesses and institutions of all sizes.

Quick and effective chemical application are critical objectives for deep cleaning and daily maintenance. To support these missions, Lafferty offers a comprehensive range of foggers ranging from simple hose-end mist sprayers to complete central systems with multiple mounted foggers to disinfect large areas at programmable intervals.

Fogging can disinfect surfaces many times faster than hand wiping and is easy to incorporate into any new or established cleaning process.

Fogger Applications and Safety

Lafferty Foggers are used to apply disinfectants in medical facilities, police and fire stations, churches, schools, athletic venues and training facilities, offices, and other high-traffic locations. The suitability for fogging and the application parameters of any chemical are determined by the manufacturer, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and/or other governing authorities.

Lafferty Foggers use compressed air to atomize chemical and create a wet, damp, or dry mist that fills the air and settles onto surfaces to provide the required contact time.

The relative “dampness” or “dryness” of the fog/mist is adjustable and depends on the fogger model, the air volume and pressure provided, and environmental factors. Output wetness can be adjusted by using a metering tip or needle valve to restrict the flow of chemical into the air stream (refer to unit-specific options).

Follow all safety precautions indicated by the chemical product’s safety data sheet. Even when a chemical is deemed safe for fogging/misting, we recommend use of a respiratory mask to prevent inhalation of chemical mist.
