ProFume Post Harvest and structural fumigation
The new standard in gas fumigation
ProFume is a new broad-spectrum cylinderized fumigant effective on all life stages of insects, other arthropods and rodent pests.
  • Registered for the fumigation of commodities, structures and debarked wood (including ISPM).
  • New software allows for flexible fumigation. Long-term cost-effective fumigation or short-term fumigation (as low as 16 hours) for quick turnaround time.
  • Non-flammable, odourless, colourless gas that rapidly vaporizes and distributes quickly.
  • Penetrates and aerates wood faster than Methyl Bromide.
  • Inorganic gas does not leave surface residues and is completely inert on surfaces, such as metals, rubber, glass and ceramic.
  • Not an ozone depleting substance.
  • Sulphuryl Fluoride has been the primary fumigant in the USA for structural fumigation for the past three decades.
  • Powerful app-based software takes the guess work out of fumigation.
ProFume is a specialized product which can only be applied by qualified fumigators and which completed additional stewardship training.  This highly penetrating fumigant offers various advantages to fumigators and their customers.
