How Does Electrostatic Spraying Disinfect?

An electrostatic unit does not “disinfect” anything.

These systems are simply the means to apply disinfectants uniformly and comprehensively, meeting the EPA registered disinfectant requirements for dwell times and pathogen kill claims.

Chemical disinfectants can achieve 99.999% efficacy rate with the proper dwell times. By delivering disinfectants via this method, adherence to EPA chemical recommendations can be achieved.

Using Electrostatics in Disinfection Processes

By utilizing electrostatic technology and induction charging of liquid droplets to produce precise, controlled, high performance liquid disinfectant application, management capabilities for treatment of surface environments is achieved.

Electrostatic application for surface disinfection is a method of applying EPA-registered disinfectants to a target surface area by utilizing electrostatic force of attraction.

Simply put, the electrostatic system places an electrical charge on the surface of the droplets and disperses them across a target surface area, providing a comprehensive, even coverage.

Consistent and uniform coverage of critical disinfectants is achieved. Disinfectant droplets adhere to vertical, horizontal, and three-dimensional surfaces, places where trigger sprayers alone could never deliver product.

What is Electrostatics in Cleaning?

Electrostatics: is a branch of physics that deal with the phenomena and properties of stationary or slow-moving electric charge.

Electrostatics involves the buildup of charge on the surface of objects due to contact with other surfaces.

·      Induction Charging: Electrostatic induction is a method to create or generate static electricity in a material by bringing an electrically charged object near it. This causes the electrical charges to be redistributed in the material, resulting in one side having an excess of either positive (+) or negative (-) charges.

·      Coulombs Law: opposite electrical charges attract and like charges repel. First published in 1783.

Most electrostatic application systems create an opposite electrostatic charge on the surface of the liquid droplets versus their targeted surfaces, thus create a super attraction, “Wrapping Effect”.
