In a very short time, the pandemic has changed our world. The virus that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) mainly spreads from person to person. When someone who is infected coughs or sneezes, they send droplets containing the virus into the air. A healthy person can then breathe in those droplets. It can also spread from a person who has the virus to any surface he or she touches. The coronavirus can live for hours to days on surfaces like countertops and doorknobs. How long it survives depends on the material the surface is made from.
That's where we come in with our Electrostatic disinfectant sprayers and take care of your business or home.
Even the White House is using the technology that we offer.
To ensure the safety and health of staff and visitors and to reduce the risk of exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19, the White House staff focuses on disinfecting using Electrostatic Disinfectant Sprayers.
Prior to COVID, the disinfection of surfaces was achieved through manual application of liquid disinfectants (spray bottles and wipes). This method has been shown to be labor-intensive and uses about 75% more chemical as compared to alternate means.
Complete, comprehensive disinfectant surface coverage can be achieved using electrostatic sprayers.
How Electrostatic Sprayers Work
Electrostatic sprayers work by charging the liquid disinfectant as it passes through a nozzle. Per the EPA, positively charged disinfectant droplets are attracted to negatively charged environmental surfaces allowing for improved coverage on hard, non-porous environmental surfaces.
It is important to note that most environmental surfaces have a negative or neutral charge (the earth itself is negative). As such, for true electrostatic adhesion to occur, electrostatic sprayers should impart a positive charge so that the positively charged disinfectant droplets are attracted to targeted negative or neutral surfaces. NOTE: Our electrostatic disinfectant sprayers provide a positive charge to droplets.
The Expansion Cloud Effect explains how charged droplets are repelled by objects with a like charge. Coulomb’s Law describes that like charges repel each other while unlike charges attract each other. As droplets leave the electrostatic sprayer nozzle, they race to find their oppositely charged surfaces, this causes them to spread out and wrap around three-dimensional objects. Just as the automobile painting industry discovered decades ago, using electrostatic sprayer results in an even coating. This includes hard-to-reach areas typically not touched by manual application.
Droplet Size Matters
Droplet size is a critical factor. Droplets must be large enough to resist evaporation and drift but small enough that the droplets can change their trajectory when it comes close to an oppositely charged target. Most electrostatic nozzles produce droplets of less than < 40 microns (categorized as Very Fine). Such small droplets increase drift and pose a user safety concern per the EPA. Droplets of < 40 microns have a low terminal velocity causing them to fall slowly. This makes them highly drift-prone, decreasing the results of electrostatic adhesion and increasing user inhalation concerns. NOTE: Our electrostatic disinfectant sprayers produce an average of 75-micron droplet size.
