Hotbox Sulfume Sulphur Burner
- Protect crops from fungal diseases
- Stops spread of pests and insects
- High quality
- Low energy use
- Regulated element
- Vapourises sulphur at perfect temperature
The Hotbox sulphur burner has been designed to help to protect crops from fungal diseases such as Mildew, Botrytis and Black Spot. Greenhouse pests also hate it so if you have an issue with these the infestation will become inhibited and eventually die out with continued usage. It will also prevent the spread of other fungal diseases as the fungal spores cannot spread in the sulphurous atmosphere. The high quality regulated element ensures the sulphur evaporates at exactly the right temperature to release only pure sulphur. Not only is it the lowest energy consuming unit of its kind but it is also the safest. By using a uniform shaped cup, positioned accurately within the centre of the Sulfume cylinder, distribution is ensured through the natural funnel effect. One Sulfume is capable of treating between 100 – 1000m² Up to 100 Sulfumes may be needed per hectare depending on the crop and severity of fungal problems.
Sulfur is one of the longest-used fungicides. Historical data tracks its use back to more than 1,500 years ago when its fungicidal properties were found to battle pathogens on wheat. For the indoor horticulturist, who probably isn’t growing wheat, sulfur can be used to battle a wide variety of fungi, including rose black spot and powdery mildew. Sulfur’s effectiveness as a fungicide stems from its ability to prevent the fungal spores from germinating. Sulfur-based fungicides are available in liquid or powder form.
Sulfur burners are devices commonly used by greenhouse and indoor horticulturists to prevent or combat powdery mildew. Sulfur burners heat up powdered sulfur (usually in a small tablet form) until the sulfur reaches its evaporation point. As the evaporated sulfur mixes with the room atmosphere, a thin layer of sulfur forms on the entire surface of the plant (and everything else in the room).
This is the most effective way to get complete coverage with a sulfur treatment. Sulfur burners should not be used within four weeks of harvest with any consumable where the sulfur powder cannot be physically cleaned from the surface of fruits and vegetables. Sulfur burners are not safe to use when a person or animal is in the room. Always put a sulfur burner on a timer and never be in the room when a sulfur burner is active.

In our endevours to fulfil the needs of growers for every aspect of their environment, we are constantly innovating and producing new products.Our made to measure Heatwave Panel for propagation has proved highly successful on an International scale. There is no other bottom heat system available which produces such an even spread of heat throughout its surface. Our gas heaters will run on either propane or natural gas and are made from long lasting aluminium coated steel with stainless steel burners. Both electronic and non-electronic models are fully thermostatically controlled and all encompass a safety cut out mechanism ensuring complete safety. The heaters reduce to a small pilot flame when the desired temperature is reached, giving maximum fuel economy. The Hotbox Sulfume sulphur vaporiser is the safest on the market. It is voltage independent and the only sulphur vaporiser on the market with a unique temperature control that can not overheat. We will be happy to talk about any special requirements you may have. As we manufacture in our own factory it allows us to progress unusual or innovative requests. Such expertise has led to occasional departures from the horticulture industry including contracts for the Ministry of Defense and aid agencies.
