Ultra-low volume (ULV) spraying

Ultra-low volume (ULV) spraying is a modern and a very effective spraying technique. ULV spraying machines are designed to produce small droplets so that a small amount of chemical is enough for a big area. These small droplets can easily cover the area by expanding. A major benefit of using ULV sprayers is that a large area can be treated just in one day. In ULV, the water in the spray is used in very small quantities; that’s why chemicals are more concentrated, and their killing efficiency is great. This is a cost-efficient and risk-free way of spraying to kill diseases and viruses. ULV spraying machines do not make too much noise.

There are three types of spraying techniques used for spraying.

  • Conventional Sprayer
  • Thermal fogging
  • ULV spraying

Conventional sprayer

Conventional spraying is an old and less efficient spraying technique. A conventional sprayer produces a larger droplet size of 100-200 microns; due to large size, these droplets cannot cover a large area. The conventional sprayer is time-consuming and costly. This is not a suitable way of spraying for indoor use as their large droplets leave the surface wet and produce exhaust gases.


Thermal Fogging Services

Disinfectant sprayingIn thermal fogging, disinfectant chemicals are mixed with oil, which produces small droplets of size about 10 microns. Thermal fogging is good for exterior use but not suitable for closed spaces as droplets of thermal fogging produces exhaust gases.


ULV spraying Manchester

In ULV spraying chemical particles are compressed and pass through a specially designed nozzle that produces a fine cold mist or aerosol. In ULV, spraying exhaust gases are not produced; therefore, ULV spraying can be used for both indoor and outdoor spaces. With the help ULV spraying machine, you can spray both oil and water-based solutions. ULV spraying is the most reliable technique. ULV spraying is also commonly referred to as ‘fogging spray’ which is different to thermal fogging.
