Electrostatic sprayers have gained popularity over the years and are widely used in various industries. They are also preferred in most residential and commercial cleaning applications. These types of units feature a metallic wand for applying the chemicals and an electrostatic shield for protecting them from damage by airborne particles. Electrostatic sprayers provide numerous benefits when compared to typical steam cleaners. They include higher efficiency, lower pollution levels, safety, eco-friendly operation, and cost savings.
One of the advantages of electrostatic sprayers is their efficiency. They can easily remove up to 99.9% of toxic materials from the air with just one application. The amount of chemical that can be removed depends on the power of the wand attached to the unit and the length of time you allow it to run. Some of these units work with continuous flow capabilities, which allows the use of higher amounts of chemicals in a shorter period of time. This means that it can be used as an effective, on-the-go air cleaner even at home.
Another advantage of electrostatic sprayer disinfection is that they are safe for the environment. It is non-toxic and does not emit ozone. It uses a patented rotary nozzles to deliver the stream of chemicals and it does not require a separate water supply. A continuous sprayer allows you to clean several areas at once without wasting time. Other advantages of the nozzle sprayer include a quick clean up, no odor, minimal clean-up and no residue build-up.
There are two types of electrostatic disinfection technology – mechanical and electronic. The mechanical type works by shooting a stream of chemicals at the target surfaces, killing the bacteria and protecting them from further contamination. The electronic type uses a high-frequency electrical charge to sanitize surfaces and kill the bacteria. Both techniques deliver exceptional results, with only a slight discomfort caused by the sanitizing spray.
Electrostatic sprayers are available with a variety of features, including dual or triple needle technology, variable-speed drive, air-dry capability, wet/dry feature, interchangeable nozzles, optional odor eliminator, and superior surface coverage. The dual needle technology delivers a higher level of targeted surface coverage than the single needle method. Variable-speed drive technology provides a powerful spray rate that allows the cleaning of deeper stains at a slower rate. This feature is especially useful for heavily stained or contaminated areas, such as between cabinets and furnishings in a kitchen or for protecting the bottom of a food grade freezer from moisture.
With the use of an electrical charge, electrostatic spraying can also target bacteria on carpet fibers. For this reason, some electrostatic spraying units are equipped with a bacterial extractor to remove bacteria and germs from heavily soiled areas, as well as areas with more stubborn stains. In addition, some models of electrostatic spraying machines include an optional odor eliminator that reduces the smell that is created by cleaning chemical-based cleaners.
Another benefit of using an electrostatic sprayer for sanitizing and protecting facilities is that it can help reduce or eliminate the need for a germicide or antimicrobial when cleaning any type of surface, including kitchens and bathrooms. When a grease eater or a stain eater is used on a grease-soaked area, there is always a need for a secondary cleaning agent, such as a germicide or antimicrobial, to remove those unsightly marks. Using an electrostatic sprayer combined with a secondary cleaning agent can help reduce the need for additional sanitizing agents, which means less money spent on a larger scale. Combined with the ability to kill bacteria and germs and create minimal surface damage, the combination of sanitizing agents and germicidal or antimicrobial agents provides facilities with the most comprehensive and effective sanitizing and cleaning tool available.
The electrostatic cleaner is similar to a typical sanitizing and disinfecting machine, but instead of water, it uses static electricity. A fine mesh or wick passes across the surface to capture the charge, which is then released to vaporize the moisture and kill or neutralize any bacteria or germs still present. There are two types of electrostatic cleaners available for cleaning purposes: those that utilize a fine stream of water and those that use a drier, directional pattern of water. While the amount of water that is needed to effectively sanitize and disinfect may vary, both types of machines are designed to be very effective at their jobs. Depending on the types of targeted surfaces, the appropriate nozzle should be selected.
