What Is Electrostatic Disinfection?

Electrostatic spray disinfecting is the process of spraying an electrostatically charged mist onto environmental surfaces and objects. Electrostatic spraying uses specialized disinfectant solutions that are effective against viruses, bacteria, mold/mildew, and odors, and can be used in many different environments and settings. After the disinfectant is sprayed onto a surface, it remains wet for its approved time in order to achieve the necessary kill claims. This method of application for disinfecting environmental surfaces is extremely efficient and effective, and includes the following benefits:

· Superior surface coverage
· Disinfect hard to reach surfaces
· Very efficient disinfecting of large spaces
· Uniform droplet size for accurate wet/dwell times

How Does Electrostatic Disinfection Work?

How Does Electrostatic Disinfection Work?

Electrostatic spray carries a positive charge, allowing the appropriate sanitizers, and disinfectants to wrap around and consistently coat all types of surfaces for a more effective method of disinfection. Because the particles in the mist are positively charged, they cling to most all objects in the environment which naturally hold a negative charge. Now the disinfectant can go to work killing all of the harmful bacteria and viruses that may exist on the surface. The charge on the droplets actually allows the mist to attract to surfaces at 75 times the force of gravity. The spray droplets can wrap 360 degrees around an object just by passing the sprayer over one side. Surfaces that are already covered will repel the spray, allowing them to adhere to other uncovered surfaces. This results in an extremely effective and efficient method of environmental disinfection.
