Frequently Asked Questions

Select questions below to find answers to frequently asked questions about ProFume® fumigant. To discuss your fumigation needs or for more information about ProFume, contact your local A-Gas Rural distributor and they’ll be happy to assist!

What is ProFume?

ProFume offers effective, reliable stored product pest control that fits with operational needs. ProFume is 99.8 percent sufluryl fluoride and is packaged in cylinders as a liquid under pressure. ProFume is nonflammable, noncorrosive as a gas and odourless, and has a high vapor pressure. It quickly penetrates the fumigated area, is effective against a variety of stored product pests and dissipates rapidly during aeration.

What is the active ingredient in ProFume?

The active ingredient in ProFume is sulfuryl fluoride. Sulfuryl fluoride has been used for more than 55 years as the active ingredient in Vikane® fumigant to eliminate pests in structural fumigation. Vikane has been used to fumigate more than 3 million buildings, including homes, museums, historical landmarks, rare book collections, and scientific and medical research laboratories.

How does sulfuryl fluoride work?

Sulfuryl fluoride disrupts the glycolosis and citric acid cycles within cells throughout the insect body, thereby depriving insects of the necessary energy for survival.

What are the uses for ProFume?

ProFume can be used in grain elevators, mills, food-handling establishments, dried fruit and tree nut storage, stationary transport vehicles, and additional uses, which you can reach out to our sales team to provide additional information about. No two fumigation jobs are identical. The required amount of ProFume will be influenced by the circumstances of each fumigation situation. Douglas Products offers a unique computerised program, the Fumiguide® program for ProFume, which enables fumigators to tailor each fumigation procedure for optimal efficiency. This innovative computer-based program calculates dosages based on input from fumigation variables such as pest biology, fumigation time, environmental conditions and facility considerations. By allowing the fumigator to quickly modify any fumigation variable, the program helps customise and optimise a fumigation management plan for each situation.

How is ProFume applied?

ProFume is a liquid under pressure in a cylinder. It immediately converts to a gas upon release from an introduction hose due to its high vapor pressure and very low boiling point.

Which pests and insect stages does ProFume target?

ProFume targets stored product pests, as well as insects that may be transported from the field on food commodities (e.g., navel orangeworm, codling moth and weevil). ProFume controls all insect pest life stages, including eggs. The Fumiguide program helps you calculate exactly how much ProFume you need for the desired rate of control. Choose ProFume for superior stored product pest control.

Who can purchase, transport and apply ProFume?

ProFume can only be purchased, transported and applied by those who have completed the training program from Douglas Products or its agents. Once specially trained, state licensed/certified fumigators are authorised to use ProFume.

Does using ProFume damage equipment or facilities?

ProFume will not cause corrosion of equipment when used according to label directions. ProFume is nonflammable, has low reactivity potential and, as a gas, is stable under temperatures and exposure duration normally encountered in fumigation.

Does ProFume have a negative effect on commodities?

Testing of major commodities and processed foods by industry and university experts has demonstrated that ProFume has no physical, chemical or taste effects on the quality of the product.
