UK-based Power Plastics Limited have launched three new products onto the fumigation market, all designed to make it easier for operatives to achieve effective fumigation results.

Temperature is critical for the successful control of pests in stored commodities, and a new Temperature Display Unit takes account of that fact with a built-in alarm. Two alarm settings can be set by the user, and are triggered when specific temperatures are reached.

In tobacco fumigations, for example, the industry standard dictates that no fumigation should take place if the tobacco temperature falls below 16șC. At 16-20șC, there should be a minimum 6 day fumigation and at over 20șC a 4 day fumigation. The Temperature Display Unit can be set to these figures in order to alert the fumigator if the tobacco temperature falls below the required level so that appropriate action may be taken.

The Unit can be worn with a carrying strap for use with stack fumigation, or can be wall-mounted for use with a more permanent structure, such as a fumigation bubble.

Featuring alongside the unit is a new Temperature Probe. Made from stainless steel to withstand robust use, the Company claim the new probe is especially effective in that its thermo-couples, which would ordinarily suffer corrosion if left in contact with certain fumigants, are sealed against the effects of gas, making this a long-life device.

And equally sturdy, claim Power Plastics, is the new Gas Analysis Probe. Other probes bend and break when thrust into a stacked commodity like coffee or cocoa.

The new probe's stainless steel construction with rubber handle means it can withstand repeated vigorous use. The probe is suitable for use with a wide range of different gas concentration measurement equipment for example Portasens units, Drager, Auer or Kitagawa pumps etc.

Power Plastics Managing Director Andy Beetles said:

 "We hear a lot of dissatisfaction from fumigation workers at the sharp end with some of the equipment they have to use. We're sure this new kit will make a difficult job a little easier to do well."
