Q
What is ProFume?
A

ProFume offers effective, reliable stored product pest control that fits with operational needs. ProFume is 99.8% sufluryl fluoride and is packaged in cylinders as a liquid under pressure. ProFume is nonflammable, noncorrosive as a gas and odorless, 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.

Q
What is the active ingredient in ProFume?
A

The active ingredient in ProFume is sulfuryl fluoride. Sulfuryl fluoride has been used for more than 55 years as the active ingredient in Vikane® gas fumigant to eliminate pests in structural fumigation. Vikane has been used to fumigate more than 2 million buildings, including homes, museums, historical landmarks, rare book collections, and scientific and medical research laboratories.

Q
How does sulfuryl fluoride work?
A

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

Q
What are the uses for ProFume?
A

Mills, food-handling establishments, grain elevators, 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. 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 computerized 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 customize and optimize a fumigation management plan for each situation.

Q
How is ProFume applied?
A

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.

Q
Which pests and insect stages does ProFume target?
A

ProFume targets stored product pests (insects and rodents), as well as those insects that may be transported from the field on food commodities (e.g., navel orange worm, 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.

Q
Who can purchase, transport and apply ProFume?
A

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 authorized to use ProFume.

Q
Does using ProFume damage equipment or facilities?
A

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.

Q
Does ProFume have a negative effect on commodities?
A

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.
