Review

Longray produces top selling ULV fogging devices that stand out with their quality and many adjustment options. Longray Basic 2610 is a cold fogger that uses high air compressor to produce particles in very small size from 5-50 microns. The fogger can be used for all sorts of tasks from misting plants in garden or green house, getting rid of molds or unpleasant odors indoors, and using fogger outdoors to spray insecticide that kills mosquitoes and other pests.

The fogger, same as other ULV foggers works with electricity and needs to be plugged into an electric outlet or an extension cord if you need to fog a larger area. Because this is a cold fogger is does not heat the fogging solution and there are no emissions as with propane foggers. And one of the biggest advantages of this fogging device is that it can produce extremely small particles from 5 micron size to fine mist at 50 micron size. Particles at 5 micron size can usually be produced by thermal foggers, not ULV. Such small particle size is effective on small insects such as mosquitoes.

Parts

Longray Basic ULV fogger is equipped with a 1200W, 220VAC motor. The motor of this ULV fogger is very powerful and can spray the fogging solution over 20 feet (6 m) distance. The body of the fogger is made from a durable, but light plastic, same as you will find on other Longray ULV foggers at this price range. On top of the fogger there is a handle that allows to carry the fogger around more conveniently. This handle becomes especially useful when the fogger is completely filled with a fogging solution, as it becomes significantly heavier. The bottom part of the fogger is wider than the top to give the fogger more stability when placed on the ground.

The solution container of Longray 2610 insect fogger is detachable and can be completely taken off the fogger. This allows to easily fill in the fogging solution and also make the cleaning of the tank a lot easier than with fogger that has got a built in solution tank. The capacity of the tank is 1 gallon (4 liters). There is a scale on the side of the container, so you know how much fogging solution is left into the tank when fogging. The solution container is made from a polyurethane that is resistible to all sorts of chemicals, so using different oil or water based chemicals will not damage the solution tank.

The mist is coming out from a swirl nozzle. This ULV fogger is also equipped with a flex hose for more precise fogging, which allows to reach narrow and hard to access places. As this is an ULV fogger, the flow rate can be adjusted for different applications. The flow rate of Longray Basic fogger can be adjusted from 0–6.3 gallons (0-24 l) per hour. Adjusting the flow rate will adjust the particle size the fogger outputs. To output larger particle turn the flow rate up closer to 6.3 gallons (24 l) an hour and to produce smaller particles turn the flow rate down. As mentioned above, this fogger can output droplets in 5-50 micron range.

In addition, you can get Longray ULV fogger with a higher capacity 2 gallon (8 l) tank and with a higher power motor. Also you can buy a handcart for the fogger, if you don’t want to hold it into hand or put it down and take it up all the time to move the fogger while fogging.

Fogging

Longray 2610 ULV fogger can be used with both water and oil based fogging solutions. It can also be used indoors and outdoors to fight with all kinds of problems from molds, to pests, and can also be used as a mist sprayer for plants. This fogger can spray in distances larger than 20 feet (6 m), when the flow rate is turned on to maximum. We found that when you use the fogger with the highest flow rate, the stream from the nozzle and movement of the fogger is high enough, to easily tip the fogger over, if it is not secured properly, even if you use the fogger on a level surface. Also, because of its vertical design, it can be tipped over when the level of solution in the tank has been decreased, because the top of the fogger is heavier than the bottom, which makes the fogger unstable. Another thing you must be aware of is that this fogger, and many other ULV foggers in general are very loud, so if you have a sensitive hearing, get yourself a pair of air plugs for fogging. Other than that, this fogger works good, is easy to operate and produces fog in very small particles that can be adjusted for different use.
