Sulfuryl Fluoride, Methyl bromide and Phosphine are common fumigants that are used for controlling specific pests present in a diverse range of horticultural, agricultural crops and wood products. The entire process of fumigation (on the commodities) carried out by the Fumitrack Fumigation System inside a leak-proof enclosure. The Fumitrack Fumigation System applies the fumigant in an adequate concentration for an extended time period.
Principle Of Working With An Example - Phosphine may be applied at a concentration ranging from 400 to 2000 ppm for a period of 5 to 21 days. As a process control measure it is necessary to monitor the fumigant concentrations throughout the period of fumigation. For this application, an online fumigation gas monitor is the right choice. This can periodically monitor the fumigation gas concentration from up to 4 different locations. The gas concentration readings can be stored in the inbuilt instrument memory, which can then be transferred to a PC equipped with customized Graphic User Interface (GUI) software. After each measurement cycle the data can also be remotely communicated by GSM short text messaging to mobile phone and also uploaded to a web server.
