Swingtec has been a well know brand all over the world for its technology on fogging and spraying. Swingtec products have a tradition of progress for over 50 years. The complete programme of professional thermal fogging machines and ULV/LV aerosol machines are the main focus.
Portable machines, available with four types of chemical tank made of stainless steel or synthetic material (polyethylene).
The fuel tank is made of stainless steel.
All metal parts coming into contact with the chemical are also made from stainless steel.
Vehicle mountable large fogging machines. Available with manually operated starting pump (SN 101 M) or with an electrical starter (SN 101 E and SN 101 Pump).
Both, the SN 101 M and SN 101 E types are equipped with stainless steel chemical tanks that have a capacity of 69 l. The SN 101 E is supplied with a rechargeable starter battery and a battery charger.
The SN 101 Pump has no chemical tank, but a large fuel tank with a capacity of 21.3 l, which allows for a continuous operation of approximately 5 hours.
The fogging mixture is drawn, by means of an electrically driven stainless steel feeding pump, from a separate tank.
In spraying terms, ULV (Ultra Low Volume) is defined as the smallest volume of liquid required which is necessary to achieve the treatment objective. Generally, using the ULV spraying mode, the quantity of spraying liquid required lies between 0.5 and 50 litres per hectare, depending on the environment and treatment objective. As a rule, for mosquito control, the volume required tends to be at the lower end of the range, whereas for plant protection in plantations and greenhouses, it is at the higher end of the range.
The Fontan® Turbostar, our electrically driven, cold fogging machine for the efficient combating of insects, pests, fungus diseases, viruses, bacteria, deodorization, and many other types of applications.
- Plant protection in greenhouses for ornamental plants, fruits and vegetables.
- Stock protection in silos, store rooms and protection plants for food and agricultural products, textiles and tobacco.
- Health and hygiene in public, private and commercial areas and in animal keeping (pest control and inhalation, vaccination in the intensive animal keeping).
- Disinfecting measures in the human area, in animal keeping and in food production plants.
In 1978, the Fontan ULV-R was introduced into the market. This proved to be a milestone in cold fogging technology, because it was the first motorized device in the world that could be used in the form of a knapsack and that was designed specially for ULV applications.
