Interactive Dashboard Tracking Passengers in US Airports

Interactive Dashboard Tracking Passengers in US Airports

One of the different metrics that Barfield uses to measure the health of the aviation industry is tracking the number of passengers throughput from the Transport Security Administration- TSA. TSA has created a table  that records the number of Total Traveler Throughput daily for 2020 and 2019. Given the importance of this information for the aviation industry, our analytics team used TSA information to create a better, user-friendly dashboard, making it helpful for analysis.

Explanation of tables and charts:

The TSA dashboard has the ability to filter by date ( middle section in blue – Select Date Range).  The information displayed at the top is the total number of passengers. At the bottom left is the total number of passengers on a logarithmic scale, which provides a better comparison of how the data is trending between years. This is in consideration of the large gap when comparing before and after COVID. At the bottom right is the total amount per year and ratio of total passengers between the two years.

The data filter section updates all tables simultaneously.

As aviation continuous to recover, our analytics team is interested to learn what other key metrics are the different companies in aviation tracking.  

Our team will try to update this chart as often as possible.

Electrostatic EPA Approved Disinfectants Dashboard

 The Environmental Protection Agency ( EPA) recently announced the approval of the use of disinfectant electrostatic equipment. With the emergence of electrostatic equipment manufacturers of disinfectant products will have to display on their labels, the compatibility of applying their product using an electrostatic sprayer.

The popularity of electrostatic sprayers is their ability to charge disinfectant particles positively, once sprayed, they adhere to negative surfaces, wrapping them around. Barfield, uses the Cube from On Target Spray Systems for its disinfecting needs.

To help navigate the information from the  EPA our team of data visualization extracted the information from their website creating the dashboard below.  It is designed to help our aviation partners better understand the type of product, kill time, and applications.

To follow what OEMs approve regarding aircraft interior disinfection, please refer to their manuals or service information letters. For corporate aircraft, the National Business Aviation Association has compiled good information. To learn more, click on the following link Coronavirus Disease 2019 ( COVID-19)

Below is a step by step guide on how to use the dashboard:

The following menus are available:

  • Select Formulation Type: There are different options available. Here Dilutable: Electrostatic spray, Ready-to-use: Electrostatic spray and Ready-to-use: Electrostatic spray ( Clorox Total 360 system) has been selected
  •  Kill Time: It filters the available kill time by product selected

Explanation of tables and charts:

  • EPA approved number by product name (bottom left).
  • List of companies with an electrostatic approved product (top right).
  • Active ingredient by Formulation Type (bottom right).
  • Total number of approved products depending on the selection (middle).

Electrostatic Spraying in Aircraft Operations

Electrostatic Spraying in Aircraft Operations

Barfield Inc., in partnership with George T. Baker Aviation Technical College, tested the Electrostatic Sprayer Cart inside an aircraft.

Electrostatic sprayers are making in-roads into aviation operations as a way to disinfect, by using its wrap around technologies.

Electrostatic sprayer works with a combination of an air pump and an electrostatic charge. Thus, charging the disinfectant particles positively. Once sprayed the adhere to negative charged surfaces. Check the link How Electrostatic Sprayer Works? to learn more about the technology.

“We found that doing a row could take about 5 seconds, and covering a 737 could be around 10 to 15 minutes on average.”

What type of Electrostatic Sprayers Exist?

In the market, there are two types of sprayers each one with a different type of connectivity. Low power battery operated and Industrial Electrostatic Sprayers powered with AC current. The low power units have a small motor that pushes the air out. It creates more like a mist. This could work for small spaces.

The Industrial Electrostatic Sprayers, like the Electrostatic Sprayer Cart, uses a powerful air pump which allows for a wider spread of the disinfectant.

The Electrostatic Sprayer Cart is suitable for large areas, disinfecting in a very short period of time. It also uses less product, in comparison to a non-electrostatic unit.

Distance to objects with an Electrostatic Sprayer Cart unit varies between 3 to 6 feet, at a speed of 1 foot per second. As a result, we found that doing a row inside and aircraft could take about 3-5 seconds on average, and doing all the rows in a 737 could take around 10 to 15 minutes on average.

How Electrostatic Spraying Works?

How Electrostatic Spraying Works?

Electrostatic spraying is a technology widely used in the agricultural industry to spray vegetables and fruits killing bacteria and preventing viruses. Similar technology is being used in the health industry to disinfect hospitals.

The current pandemic has put us into a position to search for solutions used in other industries and find its way into aviation.

The principle of electrostatic spraying is to charge positive particles of disinfectant or antivirals to uniformly cover areas at a fast pace.

The unit uses an air pump that combined with an electrostatic charge, charges droplets positively that gets attracted to negative surfaces, wrapping around objects.
