Electrostatic Spraying versus Fogging

Electrostatic Spraying versus Fogging

The world has woken up to the need for invisible cleaning practices.


Killing germs and viruses can be done via many methods and using a wide choice of fluids.


With the explosion of Electrostatic Spraying in recent months, there are naturally going to be comparisons made with other mass coverage equipment.


We have looked at the differences between santising with an
Electrostatic Sprayer and a fogger. Here is what we have found.


  • Electrostatic spraying allows the user the scope to work a whole room at different angles and be in control of the process from start to finish.
  • Fogging relies on a machine to do the work with generally no user present and can miss areas
  • Electrostatic spraying is a constant motion; left to right and up and down. The user has control over the volume sprayed
  • Fogging uses much more liquid, often excessively, at a higher cost
  • Electrostatic spraying requires less downtime. Once a room has been sprayed using electrostatics it can be re-entered as soon as the fluid is dry (20-45 minutes depending on micron setting and temperature of the room)
  • Fogging can mean an environment is generally locked down without use for 4+ hours
  • Electrostatic spraying does not require a room to be taped up
  • Fogging generally does. A business has very little down time in each area using electrostatics
  • Electrostatic spraying hits hidden and shadowed areas due to magnetic adhesion to the surfaces and very little falls to the floor
  • Fogging can push a lot of product into the air and a lot of it can fail to cover all surfaces


Note in relation to above points


  • The biocide particles in the mist or fog are so small that they remain suspended in the air long enough to kill airborne viruses and bacteria
  • Control will do the same job through the electrostatics (using 40 micron)



Q. But does electrostatic spraying kill airborne pathogens?


A. Yes. The Control product certainly does. It also helps to kill pathogens which move over a wall or ceiling for example once it has dried. Just like fogging would do, the electrostatics can be used to apply disinfectant to walls, floors, and ceilings.


We'd love your comments, questions and feedback. Please add your thoughts in the box below this post.


Unsure which micron setting to use?

Professional Cordless Electrostatic Handheld Sprayer / 3D Wrap Technology - VP200ES

The Handheld Electrostatic Sprayer coats up to 1000 square feet (93m2) on a single tank of fluid. Combined with the patented electrostatic charge, this allows you to apply a perfectly evening coating on all surfaces.BUY NOWTouch-free ApplicationThere is no need to touch or wipe the surfaces (dependent on solution spraying). This provides a fast and effective application method, while using less solution.Reduce Cross-contaminationIn most cases, a spray-and-wipe technique can move bacteria from one surface to another. Cross contamination can be considerably reduced due to the touch-free effect of the Victory Sprayer.Easy to OperateNo gauges, cords, or compressors – our cordless Victory Sprayers have been designed to be used by anyone, with the use of simple switches and triggers. Simply fill up the tank, turn on the electrostatic switch, and pull the trigger.Liquid Adhesion & CoverageUsing the electrostatic sprayers will enable a quick and effective chemical application. As fully-charged droplets hit the surface they create an even spread. Particles hold their cationic charge for approx. 2-3 seconds – preventing drips. This allows the solution to cover hidden and shadowed areas, and also enables you to cover a large area in a small amount of time. These sprayers have been designed to meet dwell times for solutions so they can work to their full capabilities.PortabilityVictory Sprayers are light weight, cordless, and can be easily taken anywhere! 4 hours spraying on just one charge.Electrostatic WrappingWhen you spray a solution charged with electrostatics, the solution will wrap conductive surfaces. Victory Sprayers provide a patent-pending system for broad and safe use.Cost Effective and Easy to ImplementVictory Sprayers are cost effective and easy to implement due to their versatility, portability, and efficacy.Dwell TimesVictory Sprayers’ standard 3-in-1 nozzle allows the user to match particle size to the chemical’s required dwell time.Eco FriendlyVictory Sprayers give an eco-friendly approach to disinfection by spraying up to 65% less chemicals per square foot.Completely portableOn / Off electrostatic switchDouble locking tankSelf sealing tankTrigger lock3 way interchangeable nozzleWrapping effect Air intake ventsStainless steel grounding strip Quiet operationAutomatic torch at tip of nozzleHard travel caseCharge 1When the unit is turned on charge starts at charging ring and works itself back down the line, through the pump and into the tank changing all ions positive.Charge 2All the positive Ions from the tank are pumped from the tank through the pump and charged again at the charging ring all prior to becoming atomized.For more information or to book a demo, please get in touch.01276 676006READ MORE ON OUR BLOG!READY TO BUY ON CREDIT CARD? Y E S..

Professional Cordless Electrostatic Backpack Sprayer / 3D Wrap Technology - VP300ES

The Back Pack VP300ES Electrostatic Sprayer coats up to 8,000 sq2 (750m2) on a single tank of fluid. Combined with the patented electrostatic charge, this allows you to apply a perfectly even coating on all surfaces. In addition, it is designed to save time and labour, spray less liquid, and cover more surfaces (when compared to trigger sprays). Victory Sprayers’ patent-pending technology provides an electrical charge to solutions, allowing them to wrap conductive surfaces with an effective and even coverage. Double-charged particles envelop all conductive surfaces – shadowed, vertical and underneath.Touch-free ApplicationThere is no need to touch or wipe the surfaces (dependent on solution spraying).
