When applied according to instructions for use, one (1) gallon of a ByoPlanet® - approved product will treat up to 9,000 square feet of surfaces through the
ByoPlanet® Electrostatic Spray System. Note that the exact spray coverage will depend on the contact time of the solution being sprayed through the sprayer.
The ByoPlanet® Electrostatic Spray System is currently UL Listed for commercial indoor use as well as outdoor use.
See Section 5 for a definition of UL Listed. When using liquid products, always follow the appropriate labeling instructions.
Yes. Users can purchase and use a longer extension cord for the ByoPlanet® Electrostatic Spray System.
• Pair the 25-foot cord that comes with the device with another extension cord of 75 feet length or less such that the total cord length does not exceed 100 feet (30.5 m)
• Swap the 25-foot extension cord that comes with the device out for a grounded cord with an IEC 3-prong plug and a female connector at the equipment end, rated for 15 amps, that does not exceed 100 feet (30.5 m) in length
• Connect a pigtail with an IEC 3-prong plug and a female connector at the equipment end to the device, and pair that with an extension cord such that the total cord length (pig tail plus extension cord) does not exceed 100 feet (30.5 m)
• Whichever option you choose, ByoPlanet recommends using a 12/3 gauge extension cord, with a total cord length of no more than 100 feet (30.5m). Additionally, ByoPlanet® recommends the use of a GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) power outlet or extension cord. When equipped on the extension cord, always position the GFCI toward the power outlet.
UL Listing means that Underwriters Laboratories (UL) has tested representative samples of the product and determined that it meets UL's requirements.
UL is a global independent safety science company that conducts independent testing, validation, certification and verification of products and is a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL).
ULs requirements are based primarily on its published and nationally recognized Standards for Safety.
The ByoPlanet Electrostatic Spray System has been tested under UL 73 (USA) and CSA 22.2 No. 68 (CAN) which are standards for motor operated machinery
and cover the overall safety in terms of fire, electrical shock and overall safety to people and property.
UL and ETL certification/listing is essentially the same thing. Both marks indicate that the product has been tested to North American standards at a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL).
UL listing indicates that the product was tested by Underwriters Laboratories, while an ETL mark indicates that the product has been tested by Intertek. http://www.intertek.com/marks/etl/
Safety data sheets often don’t address the mode of delivery in PPE recommendations. Small droplets (< 10 µm) created by sprayers can enter the respiratory system via the nose and mouth.
When operating sprayers that generate easily respirable droplets, the use of personal protective equipment is required for personnel safety. For specific PPE recommendations, please submit a Service Tech Team inquiry form.
Electrostatic spraying is the process of applying a charged liquid to a surface. A charge is induced on the liquid droplets as they are formed, just before exiting the sprayer nozzle.
When the charged droplets approach a surface, they induce an opposite charge on the surface which then attracts the charged droplet to the surface. The charged droplets also repel each other,
preventing them from coalescing into larger droplets. The repulsion also allows the droplet to uniformly cover surfaces. Droplets can even be attracted to the backs of surfaces regardless of
the direction of spray, enabling them to “wrap” around a range of surface types including curved surfaces. In this respect, electrostatic spraying can be considered an “active” application
technology in that liquid droplets are attracted to surfaces. With normal or non-charged “passive” spraying, the coverage of surfaces is determined by the direction of spray and where the
droplets fall based on the effect of gravity, and may result in uneven surface coverage.
The electrostatic spraying process has been used for more than 60 years in painting and agriculture applications.1In agriculture, electrostatic sprayers are used for the efficient application
of pesticides to plants, to help treat the “hidden” undersides of leaves that pesticides applied using regular non-charged spray applications are unable to reach. The more uniform coverage
of the fine electrostatically-charged droplets also allows for better coverage of surfaces with less pesticide compared to application with a non-charged sprayer.
The ByoPlanet® Electrostatic Spray System delivers electrostatically charged droplets that are actively attracted to surfaces, including the exposed back sides of surfaces regardless of the direction of spray.
Misters and fogging systems deliver very small droplets that passively deposit on surfaces based on the direction of spray and the effect of gravity.
The ByoPlanet® Electrostatic Spray System is covered by two granted United States patents (patent numbers 9138760 and 9144811).
One patent describes the design of a piece of the system that assists with charging particles as they leave the nozzle – housing this piece inside the nozzle prevents current leakage,
resulting in stronger, more consistent electrostatic charge with better coverage and wrap. The second patent describes the adjustable, removable nozzle cap, which allows for easy
cleaning and factory calibration of the nozzle. Both patented features also serve to extend the lifespan of the nozzle.
The ByoPlanet® Electrostatic Spray System delivers superior results. The sprayer, equipped with a patented PowerWrap™ nozzle, is an efficient, reliable and powerful method to ensure all surfaces –
front, back and sides – can be properly disinfected and sanitized.
The ByoPlanet® Electrostatic Spray System provides up to:
• 65% less solution*
• 4x Faster*
• 18,000 square feet per hour
• *Versus a trigger sprayer per square foot
Dwell time, or contact time, is the amount of time that a surface must remain wet to allow the product to be in contact with an organism in order to kill it.
The contact or dwell time of a product will vary and can be found on the product label. It is important to consider the dwell time as a factor when determining which approved product to use.
It depends on the application, but in general ByoPlanet® recommends cleaning manually first, then following with the ByoPlanet® Electrostatic Spray System as part of an enhanced disinfection method.
The ByoPlanet® Electrostatic Spray System may also be used for end of day or terminal cleaning in tandem with daily cleaning with manual disinfectants, cleaners or sanitizers.
Regardless of the method chosen, gross soil should be removed prior to use.
