In its ongoing and comprehensive efforts to protect and maintain the safety of its campus community, Florida Tech purchased an electrostatic sprayer that represents one of the most thorough and effective means for disinfecting areas affected by COVID-19.
The university will use the Clorox Total 360 System in areas where a positive case of COVID-19 has been reported.
Paired with a powerful disinfectant, the Total 360 kills 44 different organisms and viruses in two minutes or less, according to the manufacturer. The machines have been acquired by airports, schools and governments and are in extremely high demand, with a six-month wait on this particular brand.
An electrostatic sprayer dispenses a fine mist of positively charged particles that, because of the positive charge, cling to and coat any surface they contact. The technique allows for an efficient and effective approach to disinfecting large areas and all of the materials and objects within them.
