Buffalo Turbine Launches Disinfectant Sprayer to Fight COVID-19

Apr 20, 2020

Buffalo Turbine, the official track blower of the NHRA, has launched a new line of sprayers, the District Disinfector Series, that is designed to aid municipalities and commercial operations in the fight against COVID-19.

The self-contained sprayer can be used with any truck or utility vehicle and is capable of disinfecting large areas. Applications may include, but are not limited to cross walks, benches, lamp posts, mailboxes, bus stops, streets, sidewalks, building facades, park equipment and stadiums. The sprayer is compatible with EPA, NYS DEC, CDC and WHO registered and approved disinfectants.

Buffalo Turbine, headquartered in Springville, New York, has assisted national defense and public health organizations control the spread of virus and disease outbreaks for 75 years through their sprayer products, including, most recently, with Zika virus control throughout the Gulf Coast states in 2016.

“The newly released Buffalo Turbine Sprayers for disinfecting large areas is just a minor adaptation of existing Buffalo Turbine Sprayers,” states Buffalo Turbine owner, Louis Horschel. “Buffalo Turbine has been a world leader in spraying technologies for wide area vector control for 75 years now. Our expertise in this arena has led to the development of these new models. With our engineering and manufacturing in Springville, New York, we were able to quickly marry our proprietary Rotary Atomizing Nozzle with our line of high-powered blowers. Our designers and engineers were able to put together a self-contained blower to meet the current needs for efficient disinfecting capabilities on a broad scale.”
