Nimbus revolutionary electrohydrodynamic EHD spray technology:
When a high voltage is applied to a semi-conducting liquid in a nozzle, the fluid breaks up into equally sized charged droplets whose size can be carefully controlled (down to a few microns.)
Because the droplets are charged they are attracted to earthed objects coating them precisely and evenly. As a result, EHD technology promised to be a disruptor in areas as diverse as environmentally-friendly agricultural sprays, malaria control, knotweed removal and scar-reducing wound care.
Nimbus R&D is a London-based start-up developing proprietary electrohydrodynamic (EHD) technology.
Researchers at Nimbus R&D are using the latest developments in high-voltage generators and semi-conducting fluids to develop systems for agriculture, vector control and industrial processing.
Using modern versions of the Electrodyn agri-sprayer – first developed by ICI/Zeneca – Nimbus revolutionary electrohydrodynamic EHD spray technology aims to transform smallholder agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa, and provide vital new tools to combat malaria and leishmaniaisis.
