CO2 for disinfestation of grains, cereals, nuts
Our modified atmospheres for a natural alternative to fumigation to deal with the presence of insects in your stored dry food products
Air Products supplies modified atmospheres with high carbon dioxide (CO2) and low oxygen (O2) levels which offer an effective alternative to fumigation for insect pest control in storage areas such as silos or large bags.
Whether you choose the high-pressure treatment to resolve the issue within a few hours or an atmospheric pressure treatment for a cost-effective, but somewhat longer process, our experts are here to help you handle your insect problems in the best way.
The Benefits of Air Products' Modified Atmospheres :
- Natural alternative to toxic pesticides : CO2 leaves no residues, requires no safety interval and it is suitable for organic food
- Effective : Our research has shown a 100% mortality of typical pest species, no matter their development stage
- Sustainable : Recuperated CO2 is more environmentally friendly than chemical alternatives
- Cost effective : The atmospheric pressure treatment is labour free and cheap although it does require longer treatment time
Toxic gases such as methyl bromide, phosphine or hydrocyanic acid
