Sulphur Shield Vaporiser
The Shield Sulphur Vaporiser is one of the best ways to prevent pests and moulds getting a hold in your grow-room. The Shield Vapouriser slowly releases sulphur vapour which inhibits the spread of powdery mildew, botrytis and pests such as spider mites.
- Excellent preventative measure against moulds and many garden pests
- Clever design means that only vapour is released – no burning
- Best used in the dark period when garden extraction is switched off
- Can hold enough cream to last many night-time treatments
- Non-toxic to humans and does not affect growth of plants
- Effective in rooms up to 100 m2
- Refill tubs of Sulphur Cream always available
HOW THE SHIELD SULPHUR VAPORISER WORKS:
The Shield Sulphur Vaporiser heats the sulphur on a thermostatically controlled hot-plate. The vapouriser heats the sulphur just to the point where it vaporises slowly into the grow-room. With it’s carefully controlled heating action, the vapouriser will not produce any toxic combustion products like sulphur dioxide, only sulphur vapour is produced. Sulphur vapour kills mould spores, preventing the spread of fungi and rot. Sulphur is also toxic to spider mites and various other grow-room pests. The Vapouriser releases a consistent dose of sulphur over an 8 hour period ensuring there is no wastage.
USING THE SHIELD SULPHUR VAPORISER:
A single Shield Sulphur Vaporiser can be used to treat a grow-room up to 100 m2 in size. The Vapouriser should be hung roughly in the centre of the grow-room at a height of least 1 meter below the ceiling to give the sulphur vapour enough space to dissipate properly. The sulphur container inside the Vapouriser should be filled to the fill-level mark with sulphur and then placed onto the internal hot-plate. During treatment times it is necessary to have grow-room extraction and intake fans switched off so that the sulphur remains in the room to do its job. This means that the best time to use the Vapouriser is during the dark-period. Treatments take 8 hours and a timer can be used to switch the Vapouriser on and off. As a preventative measure, the Vapouriser should then be used once a week. To help eradicate an on-going infestation, the Vapouriser can be used as frequently as necessary, even every dark-period for a week or so until the situation is under control.
