KESQ, News Channel 3 posed this question to misting and fog systems expert, Bryan Roe, President of Koolfog, Inc. During the interview, Bryan discusses safety, air quality, and the potential for fog systems to be embraced as an “air scrubbing” solution to reduce airborne respiratory droplets. Many bacteria and viral pathogens are microscopic and can be transferred via airborne particles that float on air currents. Koolfog produces millions of small 1-100 μm fog particles that can “capture” aerosols to form larger droplets. Since larger droplets fall out of the air significantly faster than smaller droplets, research indicates that fog systems can provide an “air scrubbing” function in outdoor spaces where respiratory aerosols are present.
