  • A Southwest Electrostatic Sprayers, Inc., nozzle was configured to a Hudson PortaPak backpack. A test was run to compare deposition of BVA no. 13 oil by the electrostatic nozzle to a standard nonelectrostatic nozzle as collected by Teflon slides. Results indicate that 100% greater deposition occurred with the electrostatic nozzle.
