The insect killer can be of several types.
We must distinguish the insect destroyer with tube and electrified grid which works on the principle of a light whose wavelength attracts insects. They are then electrocuted on the grids
. The insects are then collected in the destroyer.
The same principle of insect killer exists but with surfaces on which glue patches are adapted.
Plates have two functions: allow to widen the capture on insects which would not have been electrocuted and avoid the projection of waste (which is an important condition in food industry).
In the food industry and industry, catering, catering, it is currently highly recommended
by the veterinary services to use a glue-plate destroyer
as part of the HACCP
Whether for a grid destroyer or a glue insect destroyer,
they are equipped with one or more tubes characterized by their power (20 watts, 40, 60 ..)
This gives the power of the device and therefore its range of action. The tubes are of course interchangeable.
Tubes are of two kinds: conventional tubes and so-called "anti-shine" tubes. The peculiarity of the anti-burst tubes is to be sheathed and therefore to avoid glass splashes in the event of the tube bursting. This characteristic makes them compulsory in the food industry. Energy saving LED insect killer
The drop in electricity consumption on a shredder is also an evolution track for manufacturers. BRC has developed destructors with energy saving lamp as detailed below, but a new type of destroyer appeared in 2019. These are the destructors operating with LED lamps which as everyone knows the consumption is very low.
Two manufacturers offer a device of this type: PELSIS (Ex P + L) and JVD.
There is a generation of BRC OPUS
equipped with energy saving lamp which has the advantage of a much longer lamp life of 15000 hrs (against 300 for conventional neon lights)
Mosquito Magnet Destroyer
Beyond an insect destroyer there is the Mosquito Magnet
system developed by Favex which is intended for outdoor protection for areas up to 4,000 m2.
