Electrostatic Disinfection and Electrostatic Spray Equipment
Electrostatic spray equipment is designed to reduce noise, heat, and sparks caused by electro-mechanical processes. These electrostatic spray guns are typically used in powder coating and other high-volume processes. They are operated by pushing a button and create an electrostatic field that lingers around the metal parts while being sprayed. The electrostatic charge then attracts the charged particles and retains them until they become dislodged by passing through a second material. Electrostatic spray equipment is very useful in various applications.
Powder Coating is one of the fastest growing industry sectors. A perfect blend of precision technology and modern technology, sprayers can deliver professional results in record time. It enables coating surfaces with a finished surface in a fraction of the time it would take using traditional methods and techniques. Spray machines can be purchased from a number of sources. Some of the top suppliers include Bosch, Honeywell, JML, Tektronix, and others.
A wide range of electrostatic e-spray equipment is available from a number of manufacturers. A simple electrostatic pistol sprayer can handle applications up to 4 feet long and works on a variety of surfaces including metals, plastic and melamine. There are also contact machines suitable for use on melamine and fiberglass surfaces. There are also a number of optional accessories available to boost the performance and efficiency of these electrostatic sprayers.
Powder coating is a popular construction and building process that make use of a powder to bind a building material to a support. Electrostatic spray guns help to speed up the process and provide a non-magnetic support. This reduces the need for frequent magnetic pickups required with hot lamination and other powder coating applications. Some of the leading providers of electrostatic spray equipment are Hitachi Ltd., Panasonic Electric Power Company (Peng), Husqvarna Ltd., Hitachi Ltd., JML Electric Company (Japanese Electrode Manufacturers Association) and Gibson Electric.
Other electrostatic spray equipment includes portable and permanent forms of disinfectants and contamination prevention systems. The portable forms include sponges, brushes, and applicators with specially designed tip for application to hard surface and moist areas. These types of equipment are most often used in the treatment and prevention of biological hazards, however the equipment can also be used for other applications in the food service industry, the building industry and the security industry.
Permanent electrostatic sprayers consist of air bags, contacts, and applicators with a stainless steel body and includes optional accessories such as contamination prevention tablets and air cleaners. The permanent types of disinfectants used include bromine, chlorine, ozone, carbon dioxide, UV light and ozone. The ozone can be activated through the addition of an extra ingredient. Electrostatic sprayers that have higher levels of contamination resistance, such as the ones manufactured by Covid-19 and Hitachi Ltd., generally have longer contact times and higher levels of ozone or chlorine respectively.
A wide range of electrostatic sprayers are available and include those suitable for applications ranging from room size dust and surface contamination to large-scale projects such as the containment of chemical spills. The type of electrostatic cleaner required depends on the purpose of the application. Most commonly used applications are for application to fine dust and surface contaminants. A high-quality aerosol is necessary for these applications, since most particles are below the size of the dust. High-quality disposable electrostatic generators are recommended for these applications since they can be easily stored in cupboards and other storage facilities. Contact times will be greatly reduced and contamination levels will be greatly reduced with the use of these products.
Disinfectant contact times are significantly reduced when using electrostatic sprayers with the use of ozone or other sanitizers. Since the particles that are released from electrostatic discharges have a very long journey through the air, airborne pathogens have the chance of being exposed to the air. For this reason, it is very important to ensure that the area where the electrostatic sprayer is installed is not full of airborne pathogens. If the proper precautions are not taken then the resulting hazardous aerosols can easily contaminate the surrounding areas and increase the risks of disease.
