How does an electrostatic sprayer work? Electrostatic sprayer disinfection is a new touchless disinfection technology which enables to clean in 360 degrees at a distance without touching hard to reach areas. Instead, this sprayer uses negative and positive charges to disinfect surfaces from surfaces that are difficult to reach.
Electrostatic sprayers use two plates of electrostatic charge to create a neutral charge in a space. Once this charge is placed on the surface, it then releases an electric shock to the surface causing a reaction. This causes an electrical current to flow through the surface causing it to dissolve into tiny droplets which are then disposed of.
Electrostatic sprayers have been used for years as an efficient way of disinfecting surfaces with the help of electrical power. These systems are still used in a number of environments today. However, they are not as effective as they were a few years ago.
Electrostatic sprayers use different methods to produce disinfectants. One of them is known as the ‘aqueous electrochemical’ technique. This process works by using a solution of potassium hydroxide, which has been placed on a surface which is in contact with an acidic substance. When the acidic substance comes into contact with the potassium hydroxide, this causes the alkalinity of the solution to rise to the point where it reacts with the acidic substance.
This then leads to the formation of the alkalinity reducing substance which dissolves into droplets and these droplets are then dispersed into the surroundings. This then helps in the elimination of bacteria and other microorganisms that may be present on the surface.
Another method of electrostatic disinfection is known as UV disinfection. This process works by allowing for the absorption of energy or light which can either be emitted from a fluorescent lamp or the direct contact between a fluorescent lamp and the surface being disinfected.
When this light interacts with the surface and creates a hydrogen bond between the hydrogen bonds, the ultraviolet light can be absorbed by the hydrogen bonds and this hydrogen bond then causes a reaction which is known as the oxidation of the surface. Once this occurs, the surface becomes non-reactive meaning that no further contact is required. This is why the ultraviolet light is so effective at killing bacteria.
Electrostatic disinfectants are important in many fields such as medicine, food processing, water treatment and sanitation. As we have seen earlier they are still used in some areas of the environment and are still in use in some industries today.
The most common area that is used in this way is in the food industry. Many of the bacteria that cause food poisoning are killed during the manufacturing process so that the food we consume is as safe as possible.
Electrostatic sprayers are also used in some areas in the home for a similar purpose, disinfecting objects and surfaces which may have bacteria, germs and viruses on them. These areas can range from clothing, towels, bedding and carpets. to the bathroom floor covering itself.
These systems are an incredibly useful and effective way of helping us keep our homes clean and sanitised, particularly those which are prone to contamination and damage. and this is why they continue to be used as an efficient method of disinfecting surfaces.
Electrostatic sprayers are a very effective way of getting rid of bacteria and other microorganisms that may be present on the surfaces that we touch and come into contact with. This way we can reduce the amount of bacteria that are present on our hands, skin and other parts of the body.
Electrostatic disinfectant systems are a relatively simple and cost effective way of disinfecting surfaces. If you want to learn more about these systems, visit our website for more information on how to disinfect your home and work place.
