What Happens with Electrostatic Disinfection

electrostatic disinfection servicesWith the new urgency to fight Coronavirus, the demand for products for sanitizing the environments in which we operate is on an increasing trend. Unfortunately, we have learned at our own expense how important it is to keep the environment clean, disinfected and sanitized.

As we all know by now, some pathogens, such as Covid-19, can survive on surfaces for a long time. Therefore, in sanitary emergencies, regular decontamination of rooms and surfaces becomes a priority. To do this in a simple, fast and efficient way, it is advisable to use electrostatic spraying applicators.

These professional devices use the principle of electrostatic induction to make surface disinfection more efficient and uniform. They are easy and comfortable to use, being powered by a li-ion battery that allows you to disinfect freely for a few hours, without being tied to an electric cable. The disinfectant is sprayed in very fine and light drops, which reach every point of the area to be treated. Through the electrostatic charge, the drops are attracted by the targeted surface, and after settling down, they create a uniform and disinfecting coating.

Why do you need an electrostatic disinfection device?

Germs and bacteria that spread in the rooms where we carry out our activity spread on all types of surfaces, including corners and hidden places, where it is difficult to reach using regular sanitation solutions. Besides, a classic manual disinfection requires a very long time and high costs. In addition, there are many areas that are difficult to disinfect, such as computer keyboards, telephones, office spaces, reception rooms, laboratories, shops etc. An electrostatically charged spray can cover entire surfaces evenly and reach even the most hidden areas. The mist completely envelops the surface, disinfecting each part of it.

How does electrostatic disinfection work?

Electrostatic disinfection services allow fast and uniform coating of surfaces with biocide solution. The electrostatic applicator ensures an electric charge of the particles of this solution coming out of the spray nozzle. The electrostatically charged molecules repel each other, so they keep a uniform distance between them, but, at the same time, they are attracted to the surface to be treated. The resistance of electrostatically charged particles is higher than that of gravity, so they are immediately attracted to the targeted objects and will not fall to the ground. Therefore, electrostatic attraction ensures that all disinfectant particles will settle on the surface, thus creating total and uniform coverage. The cleaning efficiency is therefore maximum and this method has no downsides.

Details on electrostatic applicators:

  • different nozzles are available, depending on your needs
  • the disinfectant adheres easily to all surfaces
  • being applied in small particles, the solution dries quickly (there is no need to dry the surface later, using a piece of cloth, especially as this would increase the risk of cross-contamination)
  • application time is very short compared to manual disinfection
  • micronization ensures a low consumption of biocide solution
  • optionally, you can purchase an additional battery for your device
  • very easy to use, even for a longer time
