- Excellent preventative measure against moulds and garden pests
- Clever design means that only sulphur vapour is released – no burning
- Best used in the dark period when garden extraction is switched off
- Can hold enough sulphur to last many night-time treatments
- Non-toxic to humans and does not affect growth of plants
- Effective in rooms up to 100 m2
- Comes with 500g or 2kg of Sulphur Powder
How the Hotbox Sulfume Sulphur Vaporiser Works:
The Hotbox Sulfume Sulphur Vaporiser heats sulphur via a thermostatically controlled hot-plate. The Hotbox heats sulphur just to the point where it vaporises slowly into the grow-room. With it’s carefully controlled heating action, the Hotbox will not produce any toxic combustion products like sulphur dioxide, only sulphur vapour is produced. Sulphur vapour kills mould spores, preventing the spread of fungi and rot. Sulphur is also toxic to spider mites and various other grow-room pests. The Hotbox releases a consistent 2 gram dose of sulphur over an 8 hour period ensuring there is no wastage.
How to use the Hotbox Sulfume Sulphur Vaporiser:
A single Hotbox Sulfume Vaporiser can be used to treat a grow-room up to 100 m2 in size. The Hotbox should be hung roughly in the centre of the grow-room at a height of least 1 meter below the ceiling to give the sulphur vapour enough space to dissipate properly. The sulphur container inside the Hotbox should be filled to the fill-level mark with sulphur and then placed onto the internal hot-plate. During treatment times it is necessary to have grow-room extraction and intake fans switched off so that the sulphur remains in the room to do its job. This means that the best time to use the Hotbox is during the dark-period. Treatments take 8 hours and a timer can be used to switch the Hotbox on and. As a preventative measure, the Hotbox should be used once a week. To help eradicate an on-going infestation, the Hotbox can be used as frequently as necessary, even every dark-period for a week or so until the situation is under control.
