How do electrostatic spray disinfection systems work?

Author: Mock Webware |

Electrostatic sprayers work by charging the liquid disinfectant, pesticide, or other solution as it exits the nozzle of the sprayer. The sprayer uses an electric charge to create an electrostatic field around the droplets, which causes them to be attracted to surfaces. The droplets are positively charged and when they come in contact with negatively charged surfaces, they will wrap around and evenly cover all surfaces, penetrating into hard-to-reach areas such as crevices, nooks, and crannies.
The electrostatic charge is generated by a high-voltage power supply that is located inside the sprayer. The power supply applies a high voltage to the nozzle, which ionizes the liquid and creates an electrostatic charge on the droplets as they exit the nozzle. The droplets are then attracted to surfaces and wrap around them, providing complete and uniform coverage.
The amount of electrostatic charge applied to the droplets can be adjusted by adjusting the voltage on the power supply. This allows the user to control the amount of disinfectant applied and the level of coverage.
