Tathastu Electrostatic ESS 28

We know The nature’s law, Opposite charges attract and same charges repel each other. On this simple phenomenon the electrostatics spraying system works. Tathastu electrostatics is the Tailor-Made solution for existing spraying systems. In conventional spraying system, just addition of electrostatics effect gives all benefit of electrostatics spraying. No need to invest big amount in spray. Because with conventional spray everybody having experience about air pressure, intake liquid, liquid pressure and tractor speed and all other tactics of spraying. In addition of all this everybody having experience with his own spraying unit. Tathastu Electrostatics gives all electrostatic spray benefit with your existing spraying unit.

Types of ESS Electrostatic charging

There are three types charging methods used for electrostatic spraying, including conduction charging, induction charging and corona charging. Among these the induction charging is the most widely used because of the following advantages compared with conduction charging:

  • The high voltage does not directly contact the liquid;
  • The electric field strength is below the breakdown strength of the air, so with high working voltage can charge particles.
  • High voltage Electrode isolation and insulation from mounting becomes easier, In this method we can prevent voltage dropping.
  • By principle, there is no current drawn from the power supply, therefore the current capacity can be very small.
  • Electrode is not directly connect to the liquid, so voltage dropping is not happen in induction spraying.

Out of the various liquid charging methods, the induction charging approach has appeared to be convenient and practical for the electrification of liquid particle.

Benefit of Electrostatic Sprayer / ESS

ESS Electrostatic Sprayer offers an extensive line of agricultural sprayers for most farmers needs with all types of Grapes and pomegranate crop units. The air-assisted electrostatic sprayers produce droplets much smaller than those produced by conventional sprayers. After tiny droplets are atomized they are then given an electrical charge they are carried deep into the plant canopy in a turbulent air-stream. The result provides more than twice the deposition efficiency of traditional sprayers.The electrostatic charge is absolutely safe and pulls the spray towards the plant is up to 75 times greater than the force of gravity. Droplets change direction and move upwards against gravity to coat all of the plant surfaces. The “wrap-around” effect also causes the spray to grip to the surface rather than being blown past the target, drifting away, or falling to the ground.
Electrostatic sprayers achieve greater spray coverage by combining air turbulence with tiny, evenly-sized spray droplets. Our research shows 300% better spray penetration and coverage on hidden areas and dense foliage. Better spray coverage equates to lower chemical consumption and faster investment payback. Most farmers can reduce chemical costs by 25-50% and still see effective results from their conventional sprayers. The electrostatic spraying combined with less chemicals can also give you excellent results when trying to control weeds and other unwanted plant growth. Some more benefits of an Electrostatic Sprayer system are listed below:

Charge Deposition Improvement
Electro statically charged chemical droplets deposit more uniformly on target surfaces. Charged sprays resist overlapping, both in transit and during deposition. When all the droplets carry either a positive or negative charge, uneven movement is reduced because similarly charged droplets repel one another and retain their original size.

Electrostatic Disinfection Sanitizing Systems

Even size and better quality fruit
Conventional sprayers create a random mist that covers parts of fruit but not all sides. This wastes expensive chemicals and severely limits their performance. Electrostatic spray create evenly sized droplets that uniformly covers all sides of the fruit, leaves and vine. The uniform spray coverage produces a uniform shaped fruit because the complete coverage allows the chemical to do its job for producing higher quality and equalized fruit.

Increase Productivity
Conventional method, spray is not uniform so we didn’t get uniform growth from all sides. But with Tathastu Electrostatic sprayer chances off uniform spraying is about 85%. Productivity is also increased by 30 % than conventional sprayer. And plus side some saving are added like saving of money because no wastages. Less man power. Get better quality.

Improve performance of pesticides, fertilizer and Other chemical
The electrostatic Spray Systems delivers fertilizers and insecticides to the spaces where they can work effectively, the size and uniformity of grapes are larger and more consistent.

This Systems allows the chemical reach inside clusters and on the underside of leaves where destructive pests like web spinning spider mites hide. This Systems decreasing the risk of block rot from overly wet fruit.

Environment Friendly
The application of pesticide through an Electrostatic Sprayer is still one of the most frequently used methods to protect crops and trees against diseases and insects in agriculture. Over dosage of pesticide is common in most countries, and its application leads to many problems such as chemical waste and environmental pollution from spray drift. One of the current trend toward prevention of chemical waste and environmental pollution is the application of an electrostatic technique in the agricultural spray.

Working With an ESS / Electrostatic Sprayer

In this work, Electrostatic induction spraying with nozzle was proposed and tested experimentally. The purpose of this is to share our experience with people those are interested to understated the behavior of electrostatic field. An electrostatic sprayer is designed and developed to charge the particles which is coming from nozzle.

Several parameters create influence on droplet charging such as solution characteristics, physical properties of the nozzle, charging voltage, air flow speed, radius of charging electrode, liquid flow rate and horizontal distance between the electrode and nozzle tip. Induction charging electrode is placed inside the Teflon frame which completely isolated from installation base. The distance between electrode and nozzle is optimistically calculated with the reference of electrostatic field. Most effective variables are nozzle type and size, solution composition, and configuration of the induction electrode.

Working With Electrostatics Working With Electrostatics

In Electrostatic system the ring electrode is an agent for charge induction. Electrostatic Sprayer produce small droplets, which are electrically charged as they leave the nozzle. These electrically charge droplets pulls towards the plant is up 60 times greater than the force of gravity. Droplets change direction and move upwards against gravity to coat all of the plant surface. Electrostatic sprayers achieve greater spray droplets.Better spray coverage equates to lower chemical consumption. Electrostatic spray is the best solution for the agricultural problems like thrips, aphids, downy mildew, mealybugs, early blight, late blight and listeria.

Tathastu Electrostatic Sprayer System ESS 28

Tathastu Electrostatic Sprayer is the Tailor-Made solution for existing spraying systems. The conventional spraying system has all other thing like air fans, liquid pressure pumps, good quality nozzles and experience with existing system. Tathastu Electrostatic Sprayer use these all parameters as it is. Tathastu Electrostatic Sprayer having a high voltage generation unit with required power. This unit generate high voltage using nominal 12 volt battery. It has one input, one output and one control unit. 12 V use as a input voltage, one output is control unit and other one is high voltage output.

Key control unit is use for On/Off function of an Electrostatic Sprayer. The high voltage cable output is connect to the HV electrode. Electrode is designed around the nozzle as per customer spraying unit.

Tathastu Electrostatic Sprayer generate strong induction type electrostatic field around the nozzle. The high voltage electrode assembly is design with precision and experience. High voltage insulator design for very high spraying water environment which will keep isolation between high voltage supply and assembly. In weak isolation voltage will be drop down and induction effect will be less. But in Tathastu electrostatic effect will be constant in all condition.

When water or any spray comes through the nozzle, the high voltage electrode charge the water drop, with the same charge, they repel each other, creating a fine spray mist. On the other side plant having opposite charge, which attract the opposite charge particles drawing from the nozzle. The spray droplet goes deep inside the plant's canopy. One more added advantage is that they never overlap each other. Because up to target surface same charge droplet repel each other. The plant is covered completely and uniformly.

Cost Saving and Fast Payback through ESS

Electrostatic charging of pesticide droplets is a specialist technical domain, the advantages of which are increased spraying efficiency, pesticide deposition on plant targets and reduced drift. The review revealed the benefits of an electrostatic charging technology as a means of increasing the deposition characteristics of the spray, and also for bringing many important environmental and cost-saving benefits. Electrostatic Sprayer also reduces labor cost and hence these all benefits gives fast payback to the user
