Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is an excellent fit for this application. Kill is achieved through physical oxidation of the organism; as a result organisms do not develop resistance to the process. The hydrogen peroxide naturally breaks down into oxygen and water so there are no byproducts of concern or residue. The system uses an EPA-labeled, hydrogen peroxide-based product that is also OMRI-listed and Colorado State-approved.
The patent pending fogging distribution system employs a variable pitch impingement nozzle body design which allows for the adjustment of droplet size through the option of converging two aerosol streams. This aerosol stream impingement creates a very small droplet sized permeating fog. The system also flash-heats the hydrogen peroxide prior to atomization. This thermal treatment increases vapor phase of hydrogen peroxide and enhancing the distribution of the aerosol by creating a hybrid of vapor and ultra-fine fog to effectively treat all hard surfaces in the enclosed environment.
The system is specifically designed for use with hydrogen peroxide. However, it can also be used to apply a variety of commercially available products suitable for fogging or spraying application.
