What is Aerial Disinfection?

Hand sanitizer is used to remove the bacteria or virus on hand and aerial disinfection is carried out for the purpose for reducing the airborne micro-organism which floating in the environment.


We need to use some dedicate equipment for aerial disinfection, such as:

  1. Fogger.
  2. Mister.
  3. Spray.
  4. Ozone generator.
  5. Ultraviolet disinfection.

The equipment will atomize the water droplet so that the mist could sustain longer in the air.  They will let the mist has a greater probability to hold the contaminant and microorganism before disinfection comes into place.

Some of the detergent which we used for hand sanitizing purpose may not be suitable for aerial disinfection.  For instance, we could spray the 75% alcohol on the hand for sanitizing but we should not spray it in the environment because of fire risk.

  2. Hypochlorous Acid Solution.  This solution provides high oxidant ability, the solution works well in many types of equipment too.
