Fumigation (gas disinfection) is considered to be the most efficient method of disinfection today. Fumigation differs from all other methods of disinfection as far as the fumigant acts upon the fumigated material in the form of gas which penetrates the whole depth of the cargo to obtain a uniform dispersion. This property of the fumigant allows gaining the 100% efficiency of disinfection.

Nowadays there are plenty of chemicals possessing fumigant effect. A high-quality fumigant should neither exert negative influence on the quality of the fumigated commodities nor change their taste, smell, appearance and other characteristics, as well as it shouldn’t leave the residues, which can be harmful to the personnel dealing with the processing of the commodity and to the ultimate consumer. Possessing all these qualities, phosptoxine and magtoxine are considered to be fumigants number one in the world. They are neither sorbed by the grain nor accumulated in the human organism and possess a monitory smell. These fumigants evolve gas phosphine, which doesn’t hold in the open areas due to high dispersing ability and the dangerous concentrations are obtained only in the enclosed spaces. Moreover it is able to kill pests on all phases of their evolution (eggs, larvae, pupae, adult pests) dwelling at the places of the food and non-food produce storing.
