How To Use Zoono Surface Sanitiser with Fogging Machines

For the antimicrobial product to commence working, it must dry and the most effective way to accelerate this process is to deliver the product at room temperature and at approx 20 microns. A fogging unit is best used for larger areas where it is impractical to treat via a trigger pack.

Fogging Machine Operator controlled settings

On fine settings, a fogger atomises 95% of its output to particles of 20 microns.

This is ideal for applying antimicrobial products. On heavy settings, 95% of its output is below 60 microns – perfect for treating areas where heavy wetting is desired.

Note:

When applying with heavy settings, not only will more Zoono product be used, but it will also take a greater time to dry.

Fogging Machine Application Instructions

  1. Either clean the area to be treated with a normal, reputable cleaning product or undertake the fogging operation just after the cleaners have finished / left.

  2. Note that Zoono is ready to use and does not require any mixing or diluting.
  3. Zoono Group uses and recommends the B&G 2600 Cold Fogging Unit (pictured). We have tested several units but to date this model has proven to be the most suitable fogging machine for our product and our needs.
  4. Cover any “exposed” electronic component vents with temporary covers. Typically, this includes TVs, Flat Screens, Desktop PCs / VDU’s etc – anything that has ventilation requirements. As an added precaution, also cover food bowls, drinks, fish tanks, pet food etc.
  5. Set the Fogging Machine to deliver a fine mist but at the same time providing a thorough coverage. Typically, this is approx 15 - 20 microns (or enough to form a small bead on surfaces). This will typically take approx 10-15 minutes to dry.
  6. Commence at the furthermost point from the entry / exit door and direct the mist to the high point allowing it to fall naturally onto all surfaces. Avoid direct spraying into vents, electronic equipment and do not mist screen surfaces at all. Rather, apply the Zoono onto a clean micro-fibre cloth and wipe over hard surfaces and screen surrounds.
  7. ZOONO MUST BE ALLOWED TO DRY. This ensures that Zoono has formed a molecular bond with the surface to be treated. Depending on the surface area, humidity and the amount used, this is usually around 10 – 15 minutes. This is normal.
  8. Once dry, Zoono starts working and protecting against bacteria, fungi, viruses and algae.
  9. For most applications, Zoono can be expected to provide a lasting protection for up to a month. However, in extreme cases (critical hygiene food processing areas etc) Industry and NZFSA protocols may stipulate a more frequent application. Please check these guidelines.
  10. In between Zoono applications, the surface can still be regularly cleaned using conventional and traditional cleaning products – this will not affect the bonded, Zoono layer.

Fogging Machine Use for Recpetion Areas

  1. Cover the ventilation slots of electrical equipment.
  2. Commence the misting process at one corner of the room / area and work towards the main entry.
  3. Ensure the misting process also covers carpets etc beneath desks.
  4. In high traffic flow areas, pay attention to touch points including door handles, chairs, tables, etc.
  5. Ensure the entire area has been completely covered via the misting process.
  • Remove any protective covers when leaving
  • Report any faults to the customer
  • Turn off lights as / when appropriate
