How Do Electrostatic Sprayers Work?
We get asked this question consistently.
While the technology has been around since the late 1940’s being used in the agricultural, automotive and coating industries, electrostatic spray technology is a new way to apply cleaners, sanitizers, and disinfectants to help facilities treat surfaces, often in less time and with better coverage than traditional cleaning methods.
Do you remember in elementary school science class rubbing a balloon against your head to make it stick to the wall? That is an electrostatic charge.
When rubbing the balloon against your head, it causes the balloon to take on free electrons and create a negative charge. The negatively-charged balloon will then be attracted to neutral or positively charged objects, like a wall.
In regards to the cleaning industry when applying disinfectants and sanitizers, the negatively charged liquid will seek out surfaces where it currently doesn’t exist. It repels from itself! This eliminates puddling or too heavy or light of a coating. Which in turn eliminates wiping surfaces after disinfectants are applied.
Electrostatic Sprayers Create Many Advantages For Applying Disinfectants and Sanitizers
There are several benefits of using Electrostatic Spray Technology, they are:
* The surface is fully coated better protecting the environment that has been disinfected.
* Eliminates the need for post wiping which can cause disturbance to the disinfectant or sanitizer that was applied.
* Uses less product than fogging or traditional spray method.
Where Can Electrostatic Sprayers Be Used?
Use electrostatic sprayers anywhere you currently sanitize or disinfect. Effective electrostatic sprayers can cover a large area in minutes, so school classrooms, public restrooms, cafeterias, kitchens, equipment rooms, offices, waiting rooms, and even vehicles can all be treated efficiently. Because surfaces are coated evenly, wiping is not required regularly, only periodically to keep surfaces polished.
Most commercial sanitizing and disinfection companies will use commercial equipment and products to insure your home or business is left free from pathogens that cause the illnesses with the greatest threat to human life, including electrostatic spray technology.
Taking these steps now and continually pursuing a healthy environment for your home or business will go along in protecting your safety as well as the ones closest to you
