The Electrostatic Difference
By positively charging our sanitizing solution, the atomized particles will naturally seek out surfaces to adhere to. Electrostatic application of chemicals dramatically increases droplet attraction and attachment to surfaces. In fact, research indicates that electrostatic application is 8 times more effective than using an uncharged sprayer.
Applying disinfecting solution using our electrostatic sprayers is more efficient and effective than spray-and-wipe. For most disinfectants to work, a targeted surface must be completely coated and remain wet for up to 10 minutes. Plus, all targeted surfaces need to be disinfected correctly – not just “high-touch” areas. Spray-and-wipe is hit-and-miss, leaving whole areas not disinfected. With electrostatic disinfection, every surface can be coated in less time, using less chemical, and with better outcomes.
The Targeted Spray
Similar to the attraction between items of clothing created by the tumbling of a clothes dryer. The charge on the droplets is small, but the force pulling the spray towards the target is up to 75 times greater than the force of gravity. Droplets literally reverse direction and move upwards, against gravity, when passing a target surface. This remarkable phenomenon by which the spray coats the undersides and the backsides of the spray target is known as electrostatic “wraparound.”
Safer for workers, students, and others in the area: Low volume electrostatic spraying means less chemical exposure for everyone. More effective: The small droplet size and improved coverage sub- stantially improves the bioavailability of disinfectant compounds. Fewer sick days: Disinfection limits transmission of many communicable diseases including bacterial infections, influenza and other viruses, and digestive diseases such as the Norwalk virus or salmonella. Less toxic chemicals can be used: The increased effectiveness allows more choices for disinfection and sanitization. Better for the environment: By using safer chemicals and reducing waste, the total environmental load is substantially lightened.
