Surface contact products are, as the name implies, applied directly to the surface of any liquid or solid substrate where odors are generated, including floors and walls. Consequently, the particle size involved must be large and heavy enough to withstand wind deflection and drop directly to the surface to be treated. Nevertheless the particles must be diffused enough to allow surface coverage without the use of excessive product volume. Application is normally accomplished by means of some form of spray equipment. The equipment may be as simple as a hand-held pump sprayer, or as complex as a fully automatic overhead nozzle system. Typically, some form of pressurized sprayer is implemented such that a constant delivery pressure may be maintained. This greatly assists in accurate administration of specified application rates.
Surface contact products may be utilized on floors and walls of institutions or buildings, in trash transfer stations, recycling facilities, landfills, compost plants, animal feedlots, poultry confinement areas, healthcare facilities, mortuaries, and a variety of industrial facilities. The tremendous variety of applications results in the use of a wide variety of application devices. Several types of spray equipment including mountable battery and gasoline engine types are available from GOCT in various sizes and capacities. However, these items are readily available in the marketplace, and the candidate is encouraged to compare locally available prices with GOCT's prices.
