The Electrostatic Sprayer

Electrostatic spraying is a method of applying a coating, cleaner, disinfectant, or other liquid, that involves applying an electric charge to a liquid in order to get it to fully cover a surface. The result is a more efficient process with numerous advantages.

Electrostatic spraying has numerous advantages over conventional sprayers and other coating
Most prominently, the electrostatic charge applied gives a more even, full coat compared other
methods. When the positively charged liquid is sprayed onto a negatively charged (grounded)
surface, the liquid particles are naturally and strongly attracted to the surface.

The basic theory of electrostatic spraying is to apply a positive charge to the liquid being applied and to ground or negatively charge the surface being coated. Using the basic principle that opposite charges attract, the liquid would then be attracted to the surface, allowing for a full, even coat of liquid on the surface.

If a liquid is positively charged, as it is in an electrostatic sprayer, this liquid will fully coat almost any surface it is sprayed onto. This means that cleaners and disinfectants can take advantage of this technology as well. Electrostatic spraying lends itself particularly well in the areas of disinfecting and restroom cleaning

You have to ensure that all surfaces are disinfected, meaning that disinfectant needs to be applied to all surfaces. This can become a problem when it comes to hard-to-reach areas or larger areas. Often we don’t have the time or diligence to cover every surface in a room; we can miss surfaces like walls, undersides of tables, counters, and desks, and many more.
