Bedfont Scientific - Model Methyl - Bromide Monitor
From Fumigation Monitor
Fumigation has been used globally as a disinfestation treatment for many years. It has a reputation for efectiveness against a wide range of pests and commodity combinations. It is favoured in many countries for plant quaratine because of its reputation for having good penetration ability; rapid action; high toxicity to a broad spectrum of insects and similar pests. It is frquently used for treating timber, agricultural products, empty containers, foodstuffs, seeds and plants.
The concentration of Methyl Bromide required for successful fumigation will vary depending on the commodity being fumigated, the size of fumigation area, etc. This concentration of Methyl Bromide must be closely monitored for effective fumigation and for this purpose Bedfont has developed the MBfuma monitor which measures Methyl Bromide in the range of 0-200mg/L.
