OUR TECHNOLOGY

Our High Expansion Foam Technology is used to create an nitrogen anoxia atmosphere as a mean to stun and end the life of animals. When doing this, the animal is placed in a container which then is filled with nitrogen captured in high expansion foam.  When the container is full, the bubbles are destructed by a nitrogen pulse. During this process the oxygen levels in the container swiftly goes from 21% to under 2%, which makes it an anoxia method. Animals have no receptors for nitrogen and do not respond to the sudden change and lose their posture and consciousness within 15-30 seconds.

This procedure goes very quick and without additional stress and pain. Our technology is safe for your staff to use, because only water, foam agent and nitrogen are used.
