The Application
The Fontan® Twinstar, our electrically driven, cold fogging machine for the efficient combating of insects, pests, fungus diseases, viruses, bacteria, deodorization, and many other types of applications.
  • Plant protection in greenhouses for ornamental plants, fruits and vegetables.
  • Stock protection in silos, store rooms and protection plants for food and agricultural products, textiles and tobacco.
  • Health and hygiene in public, private and commercial areas and in animal keeping (pest control and inhalation, vaccination in the intensive animal keeping).
  • Disinfecting measures in the human area, in animal keeping and in food production plants.

Working Principles
The Fontan® Turbostar cold fogging machine is driven by an electrical motor. An oil and maintenance free low-pressure rotary pump produces an air stream of high velocity being accelerated in the swirl vane of the nozzle system. This air stream causes suction in the solution pipe, and conveys the chemical solution, which is atomized into the finest aerosol droplets at the nozzle system. The low-pressure system allows the use of a nozzle system with relatively large dimensions. Thus wettable powder suspensions can be applied without the danger of nozzle clogging. Two strong electrical blowers transport the aerosol fog up to a distance of 400 feet (120 meters) and distributes the droplets evenly by a horizontal and vertical forced air circulation.

The Technique
The Fontan® Turbostar has an electronic keyboard with a digital LED timer. After the selecting the starting time, and the duration run time of the various modes, the entire spraying program runs automatically with the following modes:
  • Mixing:
    Agitating continuously by a 24 Volt DC motor equipped with a mixing blade to keep the chemical agent in suspension. This function can be turned off via an on/off switch.

  • Ventilator Pre-blowing:
    Continuous air circulation by two fans to transport and distribute the droplets evenly, with a programmed pre-blowing phase.

  • Fogging Quantity Controlled:
    The machine does not run a set time, but for as long as the preselected quantity is being applied.

  • Ventilator Post-blowing:
    Continuous air circulation by a fan to transport and distribute the droplets evenly, with a programmed post-blowing phase.

  • Flushing:
    After spraying, the feed lines and nozzles are cleaned automatically with clean water from the flushing tank. As with all of the other modes, the duration of the flushing mode can be set via the electronic keyboard.

  • Stopping the Machine:
    The machine will stop automatically after completion of the entire process.
  • The height of the ventilators can be adjusted, as well as the horizontal and vertical position.
  • This machine is fully automated, but in addition, all functions can also be controlled manually.
  • The timer allows preselection of the machine start time up to 10 hours prior.

The Advantage
The Fontan® line of cold fog generators produce an aerosol fog guaranteeing high efficiency and excellent penetration. The blowers provide a forced air circulation with a minimum quantity of chemical preparation. Optimal distribution and coverage is always achieved, including the necessary under leaf coverage for plant protection measures. There is no soil contamination by dripping chemical losses and residues are reduced more rapidly. Therefore, this technique provides a valuable contribution to the protection of the environment. By means of various nozzles, either the ULV (Ultra Low Volume) or the LV (Low Volume) application can be employed.
