As a revolutionary electrostatic disinfectant application system that delivers safer surfaces, lowers costs and keeps people healthier, E-Mist Innovations is launching the Backpack System – a new, mobile cordless electrostatic application system.
“The Backpack System is revolutionizing the disinfection process,” said George Robertson, chairman and CEO, E-Mist. “We strive to save companies money, but at the end of the day it’s about keeping people healthy. Early reports from the field are indicating that the Backpack System is more efficient than previous solutions. They are able to cover more than 54,000 sq. ft. in one hour. This means that less labor is needed because the job can get done faster. And, less chemicals are required – a benefit shared by all of E-Mist’s products because of our technology.”
The Backpack System is perfect for offices, medical facilities, long-term care facilities, schools, daycares, food processing plants and all methods of transportation – anywhere mobility is critical. Users simply wear the applicator just like any backpack. The unit is cordless and powered by a lithium ion battery that uses smart technology, which automatically shuts down when there is 20 percent battery life left, thus maintaining the integrity of the battery. The Backpack System holds one gallon of water soluble liquid – which is filled with the user’s choice of cleaning product including disinfectants, sanitizers, deodorizers and cleaners.
How it Works
E-Mist uses proprietary adaptations of electrostatic technology and induction charging of liquid droplets to produce precise, controlled, high-performance liquid application and management capabilities for treatment of hard and soft surfaces. The charged droplets seek out the target magnetically, more forcefully and with greater surface adhesion. Meaning, that the droplets cling to the surface with a comprehensive coverage effect to allow for proper dwell time, equating to a disinfected surface.
Cleaning Versus Disinfecting
A fundamental concept behind E-Mist’s technology is that there is a critical difference between cleaning and disinfecting. Cleaning equates to using soap and water to remove dirt and some of the germs. Disinfecting means actually destroying the germs, not just moving them around. With electrostatic technology E-Mist’s products disinfect, which is the ultimate goal for keeping people healthy.
“Email changed the way we communicate. E-Mist is changing the way we disinfect. We’re empowering cleaning and sanitation workers with game-changing tools to more safely, effectively and efficiently get ahead of pathogen mobility. We’re also liberating people from the nightmare of infectious diseases from the Ebola virus to influenza, by removing the deadly threat of pathogens from the everyday world,” Robertson said.
