Reduce chemical usage, increase productivity, and ensure adequate coverage with our portable electrostatic sprayer.
What is an Air Assisted Electrostatic Sprayer?
At the tip of our electrostatic sprayer is a tiny electrode which applies an electrical charge to the spray. This electrical charging causes a natural force of attraction between the spray droplets and target surface, similar to the attraction between items of clothing created by the tumbling of a clothes dryer. The charge on the droplets is small, but the force pulling the spray towards the target is 75 times greater than the force of gravity. Droplets literally reverse direction and move upwards, against gravity, when passing a target surface. This remarkable phenomenon by which the spray coats the undersides and the backsides of the spray target is known as electrostatic 'wraparound'. This wraparound ability allows your chemical to reach the underside, backside and penetrate nooks and crannies of your target surface.
Importance of Droplet Size
The ability to reach the underside, back and crevices of target areas would not be possible if the droplets coming out of an electrostatic sprayer were the same size as that found in a standard sprayer. The droplets coming out of the electrostatic sprayer are 900 times smaller than those coming out of a traditional sprayer. These tiny droplets are blown toward the spray target in a high-speed air stream (this is the 'air-assist'). The result of these fine droplet sizes is a doubling of the deposition efficiency of an electrostatic sprayer compared to a traditional sprayer.
