Abstract:

The disinfecting effect of the electroaerosol and the aerosol decreases upon withdrawal from the jet. The difference in the degree of disinfection in the points close to the jet and those withdrawn from it is approximately equal for both the aerosol and the electroaerosol. For both those points of the treated surface that were adjacent to and those separated from the generator the effectiveness of disinfection with the electroaerosol was higher or not lower than with the aerosol. In order to achieve the uniform disinfection of all of the surfaces of the room, the jet of electroaerosol or aerosol must be directed so that the entire interior of the room is evenly filled with the atomized particles. As a rule disinfection is achieved in lesser doses with electroaerosols than with aerosols.
