Bulk commodity fumigation

Based on our long standing global network in the commodity space, we are building a worldwide port-to-port pest management operation— Control Union Pest Management. One of the most commonly used methods for bulk commodity storage and in-transit port-to-port fumigation is using PH3 phosphine. Despite its obvious advantages PH3 is also highly lethal to humans even in very low amounts. Therefore utmost care and quality is required when providing PH3 fumigation services especially in transit.

    Advantages of phosphine fumigants:

    • Toxic to insects, rodents, birds, and mammals

    • Penetrates into large commodity parcels commodities, and equipment

    • Applied without disturbing the commodity,

    • Usually available and economical to use.

    Before PH3 is applied as tablets or sleeves and with or without a J-system, a meticulous inspection is done on the vessel verifying the vessel holds/ hatches and potential manholes and pipes are gastight or sealed. Safety equipment is placed on board for gas testing during the voyage, and all further measures and procedures, such as exposure time and ventilation, are discussed, shared and signed/stamped with the vessel master or his deputy.

    When possible, we verify if and which fumigator is responsible at discharge port for gas-free measurements, and we share all information accordingly in advance with them. Naturally, this is the easiest when a CUPM fumigator is also responsible at discharge port.
