The Application
The Fontan® Starlet, our small 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.
  • Sprout inhibition of potatoes.
  • Health and hygiene in public, private and commercial areas and in animal keeping (pest control and inhalation, vaccination in the intensive animal keeping).
  • Deodorization and disinfecting measures in the human area, in animal keeping and in food production plants.

Working Principles
The Fontan® Starlet cold fogging machine is electrically driven by a strong 1.5 kW collector motor. An oil-and maintenance-free three-stage turbine produces an air stream of high velocity, which is further 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 extremely fine aerosol droplets at the spray diffuser of the spray pistol. The ULV (ultra low volume) mode can be switched at the control panel to the LV (low volume) mode, which produces an overpressure of 0.32 bar in the solution tank. This operation allows the output of the chemical solution to increase, which in turn generates bigger LV droplets of meaner suspension power.

The Technique
The Fontan® Starlet is a compact, light ULV/LV aerosol cold fog generator, which can be deployed in various areas. The controls are clear and simple and guarantee ease of operation. The quantity of chemical solution delivered is defined by the selected nozzle installed in the spray pistol, and by selecting the switch setting of ULV or LV mode. Depending on the nozzle size, the output quantities in ULV are between 2.6 and 10.8 liters/hour, and in LV the output is between 7 and 50 liters/hour. The spray pistol is connected to the unit with flexible hoses. The pistol is equipped with a trigger for interval operation, which can also be locked and mounted on the machine for continuous operation. There are 3 different polyethylene solution tanks available, which may be fitted to the machine complete with holding frames and connection hoses, with capacities of 6, 11, or 34 liters.

The Advantage
The Fontan® Starlet cold fog generator proves itself through its very high performance. The machine is deployable in many areas due to its lightweight and small dimensions. The Starlet allows the choice of ULV or LV spraying methods. With the ULV method the machine ensures an efficient room treatment through aerosol fog, and with the LV method, a targeted surface treatment. With small quantities of fogging solution in both methods an optimum spreading and coating is achieved without loss from dripping; thereby reducing the chemical solution needed to treat an area resulting in economic and environmental savings. The Starlet allows the use of water or oil-based solutions, as well as wettable powders.
