Abstract

A spray unit has been developed for the purpose of coating and decontamination within healthcare environments. The unit provides uniform spray coverage onto a given surface, in absence of streaking patternations. This investigation used four exemplary surfaces; steel, acrylic, glass and laminated wood that have been sprayed separately using a novel Spill-Return Atomiser (SRA)© with a simulated MRSA disinfectant liquid. This paper reports the findings that were obtained in uniformly coating and decontaminating these surfaces. All tests were conducted using the optimum spray input conditions for the atomiser: pressure, flow rate, distance and time that were required for uniform coating various surfaces without the occurrence of streaking.
