Electrostatic Cleaning


What is electrostatic cleaning & disinfection?

Firstly electrostatic is the word used to describe the process of incorporating an electrical charge into a liquid. Why is this done? When electrostatic technology is applied to a liquid, the droplets created when sprayed become positively charged, enabling them to stick to a surface.

Following Coulomb’s law, electrostatic attraction between two forces is directly proportional to the magnitude of the charge exerted on it. In other words, electrostatically charging a liquid enables you to make it very sticky when sprayed on surfaces.

With Sychem’s Electrostatic Spray technology, spray any water based liquid at a surface, and the droplets seek out the target magnetically, adhering to the surface better than ever before. This unique technology enables the users to electrically charge the inside of the droplet instead of attaching it to the outside maximising the charge. 

This enables the droplets to keep their charge for longer, ensuring the full effect of the electrostatic technology. In simple terms, when you spray a solution that is correctly charged with electrostatics, the solution will envelop the targeted object allowing even challenging to reach places to be treated.


So why use electrostatic technology when cleaning and disinfecting?

The biggest challenge affecting cleaning staff, housekeeping teams, animal technicians, and lab guys is the application of cleaning and disinfection chemistries to their processes to intercept the facilities’ key transmission pathways. 

Traditional methods of cleaning and disinfection consider the use of:

  • Mops
  • Squeegees
  • Sponges
  • Cloths
  • Ready to use trigger sprays
  • Wipes
  • Buckets
  • Aerosol sprays

These applicators are not only challenging to qualify but increasingly challenging to manage, from a coverage, contact, and human consistency perspective. These traditional methods of chemical application present departments and facilities with a risk of contamination, HAI’s (hospital-acquired infections) and biosecurity breaches as they do not enable easy contact with all surface types to be made. Simply put, you could have the best cleaner or disinfectant in the world but misapply it or without contact to all areas and problems start to occur. Compromises to a department’s animal health status, patients & staff’s safety, and wellbeing could be put at risk and compromised.  

We offer two electrostatic cleaning devices to fit the needs of your facility. A cordless compact electrostatic handheld spray which has a 1-litre tank capacity and weighs less than 3kg when full and a cordless electrostatic backpack sprayer which offers maximum manoeuvrability and is ideal for more significant facilities thanks to its 8-litre tank.
