EMist launches the future of electrostatic sprayer technology
FORT WORTH, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nov. 02, 2020
EMist® Disinfection Solutions today announced the launch of the EX-7000 TruElectrostatic™ Disinfectant Sprayer.
The EX-7000 is lightweight and ergonomic weighing in at just 14.9 pounds making it one-half lighter than other sprayers. Equipped with intelligent Charge Detect™ Technology, the EX-7000 electrostatic sprayer continuously detects the polarity of the user and the equipment and adjusts automatically so that grounding is never an issue, ensuring the most comprehensive disinfectant coating in the industry, and reducing labor and chemical costs by 50 percent.
Disinfectant is first atomized, passes through an electrostatic-induction nozzle, charged using a bipolar power supply, and then discharged toward the target area. The bipolar supply causes the electrical charges to be alternatively redistributed, resulting in droplets having an excess of either positive or negative charges. These charged droplets are so attracted to the targeted area that they coat the sides, edges, and backside of surfaces.
EMist’s TruElectrostatic Disinfectant Sprayers are built on six core platforms, resulting in an electrostatic sprayer that provides 100 percent continuous electrostatic charge output, eliminates grounding, yielding superior, comprehensive coverage.
TruTechnology: EPIX Charge Detect Technology
Using EPIX Charge Detect Technology, the electrostatic sprayers continuously detect the polarity of the user and the equipment and adjusts automatically so that grounding is never an issue. The discharged droplets wrap around surfaces. This wraparound effect creates an even, consistent and comprehensive coverage of chemical, reducing chemical and labor costs.
TruConfidence: Patented. Proven. Trusted.
Since the emergence of COVID-19, many companies have appeared overnight claiming they have electrostatic sprayers. When dealing with life-threatening pathogens, it’s critically important to know that the company you’re buying from is experienced, respected, and proven. EMist electrostatic sprayers are patented, backed by independent lab studies, used during the 2014 Ebola crisis, and developed by electrostatic industry veteran Mike Sides, who frequently works with the Department of Defense, Naval Entomology Center of Excellence, USDA, and the World Health Organization.
TruCharge: Best Performance
Electrostatic sprayer polarity matters. Most surfaces have a negative or neutral charge (the earth itself is negative). Per the EPA, electrostatic sprayers should impart a positive charge so that the positively charged disinfectant droplets are attracted to targeted negative or neutral surfaces. Positively charged droplets increase droplet adhesion and wrap.
TruDesign: Safer Operation
When spraying big areas, big buildings, or tight spaces, a cordless sprayer allows you to maneuver and move about freely. EMist sprayers are ergonomic, lightweight, and cordless. That means operators can take the sprayer to where the work needs to be done rather than relying on wall outlets at the work site. Portability is a clear advantage for any user who needs to go where the work is to get the job done right.
TruAssurance: User Safety
Per the EPA, electrostatic disinfectant sprayers should have a median droplet size greater than 40 microns. Droplets must be large enough to resist evaporation and drift but small enough that the droplets can change their trajectory when it comes close to a target. Most competitor sprayers produce droplets of less than 40 microns making them highly drift-prone and increasing user inhalation concerns. EMist sprayers maintain a median droplet size of 75 microns.
TruCost: Lower Total Cost of Ownership
Based on the need to disinfect large areas, manual application of disinfectants is a thing of the past. Electrostatic application is the new normal. Customers using EMist systems typically see up to 50 percent reduction in labor and chemical costs. Competitively priced, advanced and patented electrostatic technology, and proven performance provide an overall lower total cost of ownership.
EMist has announced a reservation program for purchasers who want to secure their units in December. The company will begin taking refundable $50 reservations on its official website starting on November 2 at 8 a.m. Central Time. The EX-7000 is available through EMist distributors at a list price of $3,995 USD.
Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, EMist develops intelligent electrostatic disinfectant sprayers that make spaces healthier. For more information, visit EMist.com.
