Toxic fumigants and other gases are a potent hazard present in shipping containers and much larger enclosures such as coolrooms all around the world.
Methyl Bromide is a particularly hazardous gas used for quarantine fumigations. A great challenge exists for operators right through the supply chain to deal with this problem. Unfortunately, it is common practice for many businesses to simply open the doors of freight containers or storage facilities with the hope that all residual gas will be removed.
This technique is costly and inefficient, prolongs the transit time of products, and fails to address the issue of further off gassing or desorption from commodities. It also releases toxic gasses into the surrounding work environment.
Nordiko’s tested and proven systems address this issue by using powerful fan forced ventilation to achieve high residual gas extraction efficiency. Nordiko also provides carbon filtration systems to capture ozone depleting methyl bromide and other gasses rather than venting them into the atmosphere.
Nordiko’s systems are in use in more than 20 countries around the world, in a wide range of quarantine and pre and post shipment applications including: timber products, general commodities and fresh produce.

For decades, fumigation has involved the release of highly toxic substances into the atmosphere. This has often been performed under less than ideal conditions, considering the toxicity of the substances used.
With encroachment of urban development upon working wharves and depots, the potential for exposure to the public in addition to employees in the workplace increases.
In addition to servicing the fumigation market, Nordiko has adapted its products for companies wishing to ventilate or recapture any residual gases that may be inside shipping containers, post-fumigation.
Prior to unpacking imported shipping containers, many customers now see the benefit of ventilating the container using one of Nordiko’s systems, to ensure there are no unsafe gases remaining inside the container. This provides both OH&S and environmental benefits
