Cigarette Beetle Control
With controlled atmosphere
Cigarette beetles (Lasioderma serricorne). Once you’ve seen the first one, the others will follow soon. Cigarette beetles are the major pest of post harvest tobacco in leaf and finished products like cigars, cigarettes, and chewing tobacco.
You need to have an effective tool to get rid of them in order to avoid the spread of infestations in the supply chain. Effective treatments reduce the risk of infestation in factories, packing lines and warehouses and lead to a drastic reduction of customer complaints.
100% safe, 100% natural, 100% effective
ZerOx, coming from 'zero oxygen', is our (cost) effective alternative for current fumigations. ZerOx is based on the controlled atmosphere technology which creates an optimal atmosphere in temperature, humidity and (low) oxygen.
All tobacco products can be treated (tobacco leaf, semi-finished and finished tobacco products). Because of the extremely low oxygen level inside a storage or treatment room, insects in all development stages (eggs, larvae, pupae and adults) will be eradicated. Even the most resistant insect strains will not be able to survive our ZerOx treatment.
ZerOx; non-toxic, safe and environmentally friendly. Without any negative influence on quality, color or taste of your products.
Vacuum packaging; ultimate tobacco protection
vQm Packaging is developed to keep the optimal integrity and product quality in the full tobacco chain, from leaf to final product. Wtih this unique system, you can easily pack raw tobacco leaves, cut-rag or finished products under vacuum. Due to the solid shape, 25% more tobacco can be packed in a C48-carton, considerably reducing storage and transport costs.
