What Are The Parts Of Electric Backpack ULV Fogger?

The electric backpack ULV fogger is a versatile and powerful tool that can be used for a variety of applications, including pest control, sanitizing, and disinfecting. But what exactly are the parts of this handy machine? Let's take a closer look.

Hose

The hose is one of the most important parts of the fogger, as it is responsible for delivering the chemicals or solutions to be sprayed. The hose is made out of durable material and is connected to the attachment point on the side of the unit.

C-shaped Tank

The C-shaped tank is where the chemical solution or water is stored. This part of the fogger is made out of durable material as well to ensure that it can withstand the chemicals being sprayed.

Lid

The lid is placed on top of the C-shaped tank and helps to prevent any spillage or leaks. The lid is also responsible for keeping the chemicals in the tank from evaporating.

Backpack Straps

The backpack straps are what allow the fogger to be worn on your back, making it easy to carry and use. These straps are padded and adjustable to ensure a comfortable and secure fit.

Strainer

The strainer is a small plastic screen that is placed on the mouth of the fogger. This screen helps to prevent any clogging of the nozzle and ensures a smooth and even spray.

Electric Motor

The electric motor is responsible for powering the fogger. This motor is connected to the battery pack and provides the power needed to run the fogger.

Hose Handle

The handle on the hose has two controls - a red rocker switch and a mist control switch. The red rocker switch is responsible for turning the fogger on and off. The mist control switch allows you to adjust the output of the fogger.

Large Mouth Opening

The large-mouth opening is where you pour the chemical solution or water into the C-shaped tank. This opening is large enough to accommodate most standard-size bottles. This also allows you to flush it out quickly once done using it.

Cord

The cord is what connects the fogger to the power source.

Step Step 5

Step 6

Start Fogging

Now, you are ready to start fogging. To do this, simply hold down the trigger and start moving around the room. Make sure to keep the nozzle about 1-2 feet above the ground so that the mist can evenly cover the area. Also, try to move at a steady pace so that you don’t miss any spots.
