Sole Authorised Distributor for Swingtec and Cifarelli Products in the UK and Ireland

Introducing Swingtec

Swingfog, Fontan and Aquamobil are all brands of the German Company Swingtec.  Swingtec has been making foggers since the 1940's.

Products include;

  • Thermal Foggers
  • ULV Cold Foggers (fuel and electrical)
  • Emergency Water pumps and heaters 

Swingfog 

At the end of the 1940’s, the first Swingfog thermal fogging machine was developed and built.

Originally, the engine principle served for the propulsion of rockets. Further development of this technology resulted in the so-called Swingfire process.  The idea has been successful in the market for more than 60 years, and the Swingfog brand name has become synonymous worldwide for thermal fog technology.  Our present manufacturing programme is the result of our competence and experience, continuous development, as well as the permanent improvement of our products.  

Today, Swingfog means:  Engineering at a high level combined with a complete utilization of know-how. In other words: Technology and application under one roof.

We are certified as compliant with DIN EN ISO 9001

Swingfog fogging technology is the efficient and economic method for:

  • Mosquito and pest control
  • Plant protection in plantations and greenhouses
  • Stock protection in warehouses, silos and plants for processing foodstuffs, agricultural products, textiles and tobacco
  • Disinfection in the foodstuff industry, in areas occupied by people and in the livestock industry

Fontan

Fontan ULV Cold Fogging Applicators - Fuel Driven

The first engine driven Fontan mistblower was designed and developed more than 60 years ago. At that time, it was already possible to equip the machines with a ULV (Ultra Low Volume) attachment for the generation of fine aerosol droplets.

Our engineers and specialists recognized, at an early stage, the high application potential of aerosol spraying technology and subsequently developed this further.

In 1978, the Fontan ULV-R was introduced into the market. This proved to be a milestone in cold fogging technology, because it was the first motorized device in the world that could be used in the form of a knapsack and that was designed specially for ULV applications.

Today, our activities are concentrated on ULV technology and thousands of our products are successfully in use throughout the world with health organizations in the combat of mosquitoes and in vector control.

It is our belief that the Fontan Portastar and the Fontan Mobilstar are currently the most modern and technically advanced devices of their type. An important aspect of our company’s philosophy is the continuous improvement of the existing product range. In the fields of engineering, design and development we employ highly qualified people, using the most modern computer technology, to optimise our products and to develop new projects. We pay much attention to continuous consultation of our customers, users and suppliers. Careful controls applied during material procurement, production processing and final acceptance testing ensure that we maintain our well acknowledged standard of quality.

Fontan ULV Cold Fogging Applicators - Electrically Driven

In spraying terms, ULV (Ultra Low Volume) is defined as the smallest volume of liquid required which is necessary to achieve the treatment objective. Generally, using the ULV spraying mode, the quantity of spraying liquid required lies between 0.5 and 50 litres per hectare, depending on the environment and treatment objective. As a rule, for mosquito control, the volume required tends to be at the lower end of the range, whereas for plant protection in plantations and greenhouses, it is at the higher end of the range. 

In 1979, we introduced the first electrically driven Fontan ULV fine spraying applicator into the market, which founded our reputation as pioneers of fine spraying technology. The current programme of modern and efficient ULV aerosol generators is based on our wealth of experience.

Fontan is our range of ULV cold fogging applicators for the efficient and economic control of insects, pests, fungi, viruses and bacteria:

  • Plant protection in greenhouses for ornamental plants, fruit and vegetables
  • Stock protection in warehouses, silos and plants for processing foodstuffs, agricultural products, textiles and tobacco
  • Health and hygiene in public, private and commercial areas and also in the livestock industry (pest control, inhalation vaccination in intensive animal keeping)
  • Disinfection measures in areas occupied by people and also in the livestock and foodstuff industries

We are certified as compliant with DIN EN ISO 9001.

Aquamobil

  • Introduced and proved by international catastrophe protection organizations and the NATO armed forces
  • Quick and ready for action in shower systems for hygienic purposes, and in cases of chemical, biological and radioactive contamination
  • Water can be drawn from transportable water tanks, natural resources (e.g. rivers and lakes) or from a conventional water supply
  • Power can be drawn from a generator or a conventional power supply
  • Equipped for showering with temperature regulated water and the simultaneous operation of a heater
  • Easy service and maintenance. Low emission of noise
  • Easy to transport with no need for special vehicles

Complete shower system with an undressing tent for depositing (possibly contaminated) garments, a shower tent with six shower nozzles and two hand-held showers, and a tent for dressing and medical care. The tent heater ZHWL is placed such that contaminated air cannot enter into the clean area of the dressing tent.

The supply pump VPHZ provides the flow heater with water, which in turn provides the tent heater with hot heating water. The shower installation is supplied directly from the flow heater with thermostatically controlled water.

Water for the shower system and the tent heater is supplied by the public water supply, a mobile water tank or from natural water resources. Waste water is pumped by the drainage pump EP into a waste water container.

Our mobile water supply and shower systems are designed for fast and reliable use in the event of an emergency. All the components are matched and are manufactured to withstand extreme conditions. The system can be operated, drawing power either from a conventional power supply or from a generator. The showers are equipped with special water saving nozzles. The flow heater DH6 has a capacity to shower 90 people per hour when six shower nozzles are in operation, and the time of showering is four minutes per person. During the four minute period, each nozzle supplies 33 litres of shower water.

Using the flow heater DH5, with the same consumption of water and time of showering per person, a shower capacity of approximately 55 people per hour is possible, when four shower nozzles are in operation.
