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.
The system acts like a decoy and the process takes place in 3 phases, the device attracting mosquitoes in the first stage, then sucking them up and trapping them, the 3rd stage being the death by asphyxiation of said mosquitoes. Explanation! You should know that the mosquito is attracted by the smell of the skin and the presence of carbon dioxide produced by human respiration. The diffusion of a mixture associating propane gas, transformed by the device into carbon dioxide (CO²), and an adjuvant, Octenol (substance produced by plants and certain animals), as well as Lurex 3 specially dedicated to Mosquitoes Tigers, allows to reproduce the characteristics of this human respiration and in doing so to "trap" the insects, which are sucked via an attractor tube in a net, where they then dehydrate in 24 hours.
