A summary of important facts:
Where is disinfection necessary?
Disinfection is necessary wherever germs, viruses or bacteria occur and can cause damage. This typically occurs in hospitals , but can also be found in food production or textile care and cleaning. Disinfectants are also important in normal household use.
How is disinfection done?
During disinfection, the bacterial count is brought to an critical level by a suitable disinfectant. In addition to the choice of the right disinfectant, attention must also be paid to the correct performance and the exposure time of the disinfectant.
What must be observed?
Common disinfectants are for example peracetic acid, hydrogen peroxide, aldehydes, alcohols and - as known from indoor and outdoor swimming pools - chlorine. All these are dangerous products, which is why careful and well-dosed use is strongly recommended. For the correct dosage it helps to atomize the media with nozzles.
Disinfectants should be atomized as finely as possible, since fine drops increase the reactive surface significantly.
Overview drop sizes and drop volumes
A large reactive surface is important to ensure that disinfectant is applied to each area and that the agent can act in a targeted manner. In addition, a large reactive surface helps to save medium, which reduces costs and is good for the environment.
