Product Spotlight: EMist Electrostatic Sprayers

EMist is a US-based manufacturer of electrostatic disinfectant sprayers headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas. The original product was created by industry veteran Mike Sides, who has designed electrostatic spray technology for more than 30 years. We're excited to be able to offer this outstanding disinfection tool to help keep your facilities cleaner, safer and healthier.

What are EMist Disinfectant Sprayers?

EMist electrostatic sprayers are the most powerful, efficient and cost-effective disinfection sprayers on the market. The sprayers place an electrostatic charge to disinfectants as the chemical leaves the spray nozzle, which causes the chemical droplets to cling to virtually any surface.

What sets EMist apart from other sprayers?

  • They're effective.
    Using smart technology and powered by advanced lithium-ion battery, EMist sprayers are more reliable, versatile, and longer-working.
  • They're cordless.
    Less noise, more convenient, and greater mobility in a work-horse, cord-free design.
  • They're versatile.
    Mobile, cordless and driven by the new EPIX electrostatic technology, EMist uses any water-soluable List N disinfectant.


Who can operate the EMist sprayers?

Your current janitorial, housekeeping or environmental service staff will find the sprayers easy to use and to operate. They’ll also discover that it takes less time to cover more area and to do the job with better outcomes and more cost effectively than traditional methods of disinfecting.

How does using an EMist sprayer save on labor costs as compared to "wipe-and-go" disinfecting method?  

Using the system decreases the amount of labor and chemicals used by up to 50%. The system allows the chemistry to achieve proper contact time for maximum kill claims stated by the EPA registered chemical. The current “wipe-and-go” disinfecting method introduces human error with the potential of missing high/low touch surfaces, minimizing kill claims by chemicals with reduced, inconsistent contact times and introducing the potential for cross-contamination by touching every surface. It also has the potential to expose workers to surface pathogens due to touching surfaces.

Cordless vs. corded: cutting the cord 

Just as is true in most industries, there are pros and cons between using a cordless or corded electrostatic sprayer. A corded electrostatic sprayer restricts mobility and keeps you tethered to a wall outlet and because there are electrical cords involved, they create a tripping hazard.
As well, most corded electrostatic sprayers recommend the use of a GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) power outlet. On the other hand, a cordless electrostatic sprayer is not tethered to a wall outlet for power. That means you can take the electrostatic sprayer to where the work
needs to be done rather than relying on wall outlets at the work site. Since the electrostatic sprayer has no cord, a cordless sprayer offers greater flexibility and portability. When spraying big projects, multi-story buildings, tight spaces, a cordless sprayer allows you to maneuver
and move about freely without the hazard of tripping or tangling a cord. Portability is a clear advantage for any user that needs to move about frequently.
Additionally, nearly every power tool on the market today comes with a lithium ion battery. These batteries are capable of holding a lot of power that doesn’t diminish over time if the sprayer is not in use. Corded electrostatic sprayers are no match to cordless electrostatic sprayers when it comes to maneuverability and convenience. EMist cordless electrostatic sprayers will last a long time before their power starts to diminish.

How long do germs stay on surfaces?

SARS-CoV-2 can remain on surfaces for hours and up to 9 days. Research has shown that microorganisms can survive on surfaces for days, weeks, and even months, and can be hidden from current spray and wipe methods. Using electrostatic technology provides
effective, proven, safe and comprehensive surface coverage and eliminates cross-contamination of dangerous pathogens.

Which disinfectants can be used with EMist?

Any water-soluble chemical can be used in the EMist electrostatic sprayers. However, we prefer “safe and green” disinfectants. Obviously, a perfect disinfectant would offer complete and full microbiological sterilization, without harming people/animals, would be inexpensive, and noncorrosive. However, most disinfectants are potentially harmful and even toxic to humans/animals. One such solution is Hypochlorous acid (HOCL). Though very powerful, HOCL is 100 percent safe for humans, chemical-free, non-toxic and all-natural.

How often should I clean and disinfect surfaces?

We recommend and follow the CDC’s standard procedures for routine cleaning and
disinfecting. Typically, this means daily sanitizing of surfaces and objects that are touched often.
