How do ByoPlanet’s Induction Charged Sprayers work?

The ByoPlanet sprayer aerosolizes and then electrically charges almost any conductive water based solution. This process produces a directional spray that is far superior to any traditional types of application techniques on the market today.

Since the charged droplets repel each other in flight - they will deposit very evenly and actually compete for surface attraction which provides the most comprehensive spray deposition possible.  This produces an even, gravity-defying coating of everything in the vicinity which allows the product to reach into cracks and crevices where manual, misting or fogging methods simply cannot reach.

Another added benefit to the ByoPlanet electrostatic technology is that because the charged droplets are seeking out a surface – they clear the air much faster than a Fogger that leaves the air saturated, until it subjected to gravity or forcibly cleared. This allows occupants to safely reenter a room much sooner.

Why is Induction Charged Spray Technology superior to Hand, Trigger or Pump Spraying?

The science behind ByoPlanet’s spray technology and the comprehensive coverage it provides – means that users are able to conduct spot cleaning to remove any visible organics and then a true disinfection procedure can be done with the ByoPlanet system to reach and treat all surfaces without the threat of cross contamination.  This application method reduces the labor allocation required to disinfect large spaces and eliminates the threat of cross contamination.

What is the difference between cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting as defined by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) ?

Cleaning is the removal of visible soil (e.g., organic and inorganic material) from objects and surfaces and normally is accomplished manually or mechanically using water with detergents or enzymatic products. Thorough cleaning is essential before high-level disinfection because inorganic and organic materials that remain on the surfaces of instruments interfere with the effectiveness of these processes. 

Sanitizing is meant to reduce, not kill, the occurrence and growth of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. When you sanitize a surface you are reducing the number of bacteria present by 3-log (99.9%).

Disinfection describes a process that eliminates many or all pathogenic microorganisms, except bacterial spores, on inanimate objects. In order for a product to be classified as a disinfectant it must have a minimum 6-log reduction (99.9999%) of all bacteria, viruses, and fungi listed on its product label. Each of the various factors that affect the efficacy of disinfection can nullify or limit the efficacy of the process. Factors that affect the efficacy of disinfection include prior cleaning of the object; organic and inorganic load present; type and level of microbial contamination; concentration of and exposure time to the germicide.

What Chemicals can be used in this equipment?

Our induction charged technology sprayers are chemically neutral. We have conducted extensive testing on several different manufacturers’ products and almost all EPA approved, water based chemicals will accept a charge.

It is important that all users read the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for the chemical product being used in our equipment. Chemicals vary in their suggested use and can be more or less effective on different surfaces.

Make sure to follow all manufacturer label instructions and Personal Protective Equipment prior to use. If you want to verify the product you are planning to use is safe please contact the chemical manufacturer or call us at 855-211-1518

How long does a chemical need to stay wet on the surface to be effective?

Dwell time, or Contact time, is the amount of time that a surface must remain wet to allow the chemical to be in contact with an organism in order to kill it. The dwell time of a product will vary by chemical manufacturer and can be found on the product label. Typical disinfectant dwell times range between 2-10 minutes. It is important to consider the dwell time as a factor when determining which disinfectant to use. Always make sure to read the chemical label prior to useand wear the recommended PPE.

How do I know what chemical to use for my pain points?

Our induction charged technology is the ultimate application system to deliver EPA approved products to surfaces without the risk of cross contamination. Each chemical you choose to use for a specific pain point will have specific “Kill claims” on the product label or on the Manufacturers’ Master label.

Always make sure to read the chemical label prior to use and wear the recommended PPE

If there is an outbreak, do we only need to spray the area where we know the virus is present?

No. Viruses are never contained to a particular area and many may become airborne. If there is an outbreak of MRSA, Norovirus, or any other highly infectious virus/bacteria you should highly consider treating the entire facility. For example; during an outbreak of Norovirus on a cruise ship a passenger can be infected for up to 72-hours before showing signs of infection (vomiting, diarrhea). During that incubation period, the virus can be spread to a much larger area. The CDC requires that if more than 3% of the ship’s population report illness, then the entire vessel shall require disinfection.

⦁ How can I demonstrate that the sprayer did its job?

⦁ Test Data: Our research and development teams have spent the last 7 years testing and verifying the effectiveness of our sprayer paired with various disinfectants and that test data is available upon request.

⦁ Dye Test: Kits are available for you to conduct this simple demonstration where tape is randomly placed around an area to be sprayed. The dye is then mixed with water and sprayed over a target surface. Once spraying is complete, the tape is removed and a florescent light is used to show the full coverage.⦁ Video

⦁ Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) Testing: An ATP meter can be used to quickly show the reduction of ATP after the disinfectant application. The meter measures the presence of ATP, energy, to prove that bacteria or viruses are present. Readings should be taken prior to disinfection and then immediately after to show the reduction in ATP levels.

(Note: ATP readers are not the most accurate and can produce/exhibit high, false, readings if you do not allow the disinfectant to completely dry before re-testing)

⦁ Laboratory Culture Testing: This type of test is more costly but can be an important t
est for hospitals. This requires a certified Lab that can sample and culture pre and post swabs of micro-organisms.

⦁ Can I recharge the Battery?
No, the batteries are non-rechargeable. Each battery will last approximately 60 hours of “Continuous” spray time. The average size room (300 sqft) will take around 2 minutes to spray. Batteries are sold individually or in a 6 pack.

⦁ Are there any serviceable sections of the sprayer?
There are, and they are detailed within the User's Manual. 

⦁ What is proper liquid filter maintenance? 
Ideally, the ES-120 system should have clean water rinsed throughout and all liquid evacuated after each use. The filter should then be removed, inspected for contaminants/debris that build up on the exterior screen surface and rinsed with clean water. This will help prevent any residue build up and/or remove anything mistakenly trafficked through the liquid system.  This maintenance also ensures the liquid delivery flow rate is consistent between uses.
