Dry Fogging Explained


The Halo Disinfection System®

Eliminating the Risk that a Less Effective Disinfectant Solution Leaves Behind


Complete Coverage, No Exceptions

When it comes to coverage, the term “whole room disinfection” can be deceiving. In fact, many whole room disinfection technologies on the market today do not disinfect the whole room at all.

The least comprehensive coverage comes from manual disinfection. Even the most thorough manual disinfection is unable to target hard-to-reach pathogens and achieve uniform coverage. This is due to the inherent variation in procedures carried out by humans.

While a significant improvement upon manual methods, UV-based whole room disinfection systems are also unable to put the ‘whole’ in whole room disinfection. Because the UV system relies on light to disinfect, shadows, distance and line of site are its Achilles’ heels. The lion’s share of UV technologies requires technicians to reposition the system around the room to improve coverage. With room turnover on the line, this is far from ideal.

The proliferation of new whole room disinfection technologies has provided infection control professionals many options for protecting their staff and the public from dangerous pathogens. But not every disinfectant solution is equal.

Halosil’s Halo Disinfection System® pairs HaloMist™, a proprietary broad-spectrum disinfectant, with the HaloFogger® to ensure the uniform, dry fogging delivery of disinfectant throughout any complex space, achieving complete coverage with the highest possible efficacy on the market today.

Dry Fogging

Here’s How it Works

The HaloFogger generates a turbulent aerosol that uses evaporation to quickly disperse H202 vapor and increasingly concentrated micro-droplets everywhere in complex rooms to kill germs where they hide, ensuring our proprietary HaloMist formula reaches even those spaces beyond the reach of sprays, wipes, or UV lights. Specialized HaloFogger options and assemblies empower disinfection leaders to achieve the same, infection-destroying efficacy in a variety of settings.

The fogger

The HaloFogger delivers complete surface disinfection throughout any room with the press of a button, delivering a precise amount of disinfectant solution to eliminate pathogens in a myriad of complex spaces found in healthcare, long-term care, and life sciences facilities, as well as in day cares, schools, athletic facilities and more.

The mist

HaloMist is Halosil’s proprietary, ready-to-use fogging formula, registered in all 50 states. Their unique stabilisation process blends the long-leveraged power of a hydrogen peroxide disinfectant with antimicrobial silver ions to provide multiple killing mechanisms for attacking pathogens. HaloMist defends against a broad range of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and spores.

Halosil Indicator Strips
The indicators

Chemical Indicator strips are a simple, effective and reliable method for verifying coverage of the disinfecting mist dispensed by a HaloFogger®. Positioned throughout a room prior to treatment (a minimum of four is recommended, one in each corner of the room), the pad on the strip’s end will change from white to black in the presence of high levels of hydrogen peroxide (70ppm or higher). Position strips wherever you need for positive proof that the hydrogen peroxide disinfectant has reached—and disinfected—that surface.

A Superior Standard for Whole Room Disinfection

The Halo Disinfection System® leads the industry in surface coverage and effectiveness, helping healthcare, long term care, athletic and educational facilities raise their standards for whole room disinfection. Delivering the highest calibre disinfectant solution on the market today, it is proven to kill 99.9999% of C. difficile spores in healthcare settings. Pairing its industry-leading effectiveness with ease of use and a low cost of operation, the Halo Disinfection System® delivers value that is unmatched by other chemical or UV-based whole room disinfection offerings.
