Overview.

It all starts with our high expansion foam technology, where bubbles distribute an active substance to fill up a specific area or room. When the area is filled the bubbles break and exposes the substance to the surroundings.

This method lets the substance cover every single inch of the exposed area. Making it exceptionally useful for a wide range of situations.

More humane stunning.

When our method is used for ending animals’ life, a system is filled with nitrogen captured in high expansion foam, when the bubbles in the foam break, the oxygen level in the air go in a swift instant from 21% to under 2%.

Air consists of 78% nitrogen and 21% oxygen. Animals have no receptors that make them react to the changed levels of nitrogen in the air from 78% to 98% nitrogen. They lose their posture and consciousness within 10-20 seconds, unaware of what is happening. The significant advantage of this procedure is that it is very quick, without any additional stress and pain.

ANOXIA method.

Anoxia refers to an environment that has an oxygen level under 2%. When animals are exposed to this environment they will immediately lose consciousness without any additional stress or pain. For this reason, it is the preferred method for stunning animals.

Anoxia is not to be confused with hypoxia which refers to a partial lack of oxygen. When an animal is exposed to a hypoxic environment for stunning, it will notice a lack of oxygen and panic due to difficulty breathing. An example of a method that is based on hypoxia is carbon dioxide gassing, which is known for causing stress and pain to the animal.

Why high
expansion foam ?

Visibility and observation possible
No airway occlusion
Decreased gas consumption
Controlled atmosphere
Low water consumption
