Vectorfog – Guaranteed service and quality

Vectornate is a company established in 1990, in South Korea, by GJ Yeom, and engineer specialised in molecular technology. Initially focusing on manufacturing tools and household appliances, including vacuum cleaners, washing machines and refrigerators under the Samsung brand, the company then shifted its focus on creating fogging equipment, especially one focused on using ULV technology. In 2005, GJ Yeom began to develop and patent the first spray nozzles that use ULV. Vectorfog then appered as a division of Vectornate and was established in the UK in 2009, while starting to supply fogging equipment and pest control supplies.

Due to the experience gained, when GJ Yeom joined his son Sean Yeom and moved the VectorFog division to UK, their first ULV cold fogger, known as ULV C150, became a world wide success with over 10.000 units sold in the first year. Since then, the success of VectorFog continued, introducing new equipment which proved to be revolutionary in the industry of pest control.

To this day, they have managed to manufacture and distribute a wide range of foggers, with the help of a dynamic team, qualified engineers, innovators, supply chain specialists and manufacturing experts. All their products are certified and they undergo several quality control processes, and are being sold world wide in places like the Middle East, Russia, South America and all over Europe. They serve global industries, such as urban pest control, public hygiene and agriculture, and provide hands on solutions for the different needs of their clients, whether they are pest control professionals, wholesalers, agents, and government departments.

Fogging equipment and ULV technology

Vectorfog’s fogging equipment is mostly used for the application of disinfectants, biocides, fungicides and pesticides. They use the ULV technology, meaning their foggers generate a fog or mist formed of Ultra Low Volume (ULV) droplets between 5-50 microns (μm) in diameter. Studies have shown that when it comes to droplets of this size, they are ideal to tackle pathogens, vector carriers and pests. This small size also help as the formulations can be applied in concentrations of 10-90% and at flow rates of up to 0.5 litres per minute (30 litres per hour), thus making them more efficient in the Volume Median Diameter (VMD) spectrum.

When it comes to conventional sprayers, they reach insects less effectively than ULV technology because they involve the use of larger droplets, sized between 100-200 microns.  This doesn’t fully cover the whole area being sprayed, rendering thus less effective. Manual sprayers can also be very time consuming and labour intensive, and although motorized versions work quicker, there are not suitable for indoor use, as they leave surfaces very wet and produce exhaust gases.
Thermal Fogging, however, heats up the pesticides or disinfectants which are mixed with oil, producing thus a very dense and visible fog. Thermal fogging proves to be ideal for exterior use in order to disinfect, combat vector carriers and pests. However, this method is not suitable for applying in closed indoor spaces due to the exhaust gases they produce.

In an effort to better the way you can deal with indoor infestations, VectorFog has begun to manufacture a dual function thermal fogger that can also fog water based solutions.
ULV fogging thus works by compressing pesticides or disinfectants through a specially designed nozzle, producing a fine cold mist or aerosol. Ideal for indoor applications are the electric portable versions, as they don’t produce exhaust gases and are less noisy, and they can apply both oil and water based solutions.
