Antari Disinfection Fog Machines available at DWR

South African based DWR Distribution is pleased to distribute the Antari AirGuard AG-800 Disinfector fog machine, developed as a specialised fogging treatment for infection control and sanitation of both residential and commercial settings.

Lightweight, portable and convenient, the highly functional smoke disinfector is more effective than wiping down surfaces, which can contribute to cross-contamination. The fogging disinfectant does not need to be wiped off after treatment like traditional toxic disinfectants, as it breaks down safely.

The AG-800 can spread fog to fill the entire space in 3D direction. Operating with FLV-05 sanitation solution, it provides a thin layer on object surfaces in the room to inhibit bacteria growth. This, in turn, disinfects surface areas, touch-points, and equipment, which means it is highly effective for antiviral infection control in halls, homes, businesses, and sensitive spaces such as hospitals and healthcare locations, retail showrooms, waiting rooms, rest homes, trains and carriages and reception areas etc.

The AG-800 can produce one cubic meter of smoke in about 3 seconds, or 3000 cu ft in under a minute. You can cover a normal 240 cubic meter classroom in about 10 to 12 minutes, or if disinfecting a car, turn the air conditioner to recycle and use for 30 seconds at a time.

After the smoke is sprayed, allow 5 to 10 minutes for the smoke to circulate and cover the space in order to disinfect.

 

How long does the effect last?

This depends on the environmental conditions, such as ventilation and number of human movements. For example, disinfection in a car for personal use can be effective for two weeks, however, a car used frequently for business should be disinfected each day. In general, the more occupied a location is, the more frequently it should be disinfected. A typical office can be treated once a week during times of concern or during outbreaks, and every 2-4 weeks at other times as a precautionary measure.

In general, the more occupied a location is, the more frequently it should be disinfected.

Allowing the fog to rest is important to enable the fog to have enough time to cover the surface of objects and form a protective shield. Fog is very light so it will take some time for it to drift in the air before falling on the objects. The minimum recommended time is 10 minutes; however a longer period will see better coverage.

The AG-800 fog treatment will promote peace of mind to those returning to work during the COVID-19 outbreak. The AG-800 fog treatment kills most fungi, germs, viruses, dust mites and will get rid of odours effectively.

  • The FLV-05 disinfectant works by denaturing the virus’ proteins, which makes it incapable of binding to human cells.

Foggers are obviously not recommended for use in rooms when people are present! Wash hands frequently, stay away from other people, disinfect surfaces and wipe high-touch areas frequently with alcohol or bleach, but use a fogger for those hard to get to places you know you don’t get wiped properly. Reassure staff and visitors that every effort is being made to keep workspaces hygienic.
