Frequently Asked Questions
NAV-CO2 systems use liquid carbon dioxide (CO2) as a propellant. NAV-CO2 systems combine alcohol-based sanitizing solutions with a heated stream of CO2 liquid to create a vapor capable of penetrating small crevices and gaps.
NAV-CO2 atomizes alcohol at room temperature using liquid CO2. Sanitizers such as quaternary ammonium can be added to alcohol to sanitize contact surfaces where individuals may become exposed to pathogens. This is achieved with a highly reduced risk of flammability inherent in atomized alcohol sanitizers. This breakthrough application method allows for sanitizing without water or residue.
Fomites are surfaces that contain pathogens.
In the event that you need to sanitize a large area quickly you will want to avoid having to take the entire system to a shop to have it refilled.

Yes. Biomist Power Sanitizing Systems propel a nonflammable mist of concentrated alcohol up to 15 feet with a point-and-spray atomizer. Alcohol’s antimicrobial properties are well known, and our system eliminates its flammability by using CO2 to encase the alcohol vapor. Biomist Formula D2 is an EPA-approved hospital-grade disinfectant that’s tuberculocidal, virucidal, fungicidal, and is strong enough to kill Norovirus. It’s a pre-mixed solution of isopropyl alcohol and quaternary ammonium compounds. It dries in minutes, so no wiping or residual cleanup is required. The swirling mist penetrates into cracks and crevices where pathogens hide. Disinfecting areas beyond physical reach such as ceiling vents. Biomist Formula D2 is non-corrosive, so it's perfect for disinfecting non-critical devices and sensitive electronic equipment like electrocardiogram machines, computers, telephones, and keyboards. Biomist is also safe for use in food-processing areas and cafeterias.
