How does CRYONITE work?
Making the snow
The CO2 is in a liquid form in the tube and will come out frozen (snow) from the nozzle. About half of the CO2 will become cold gas, blowing the snow forward into the pests hiding places.
The CO2 snow made by CRYONITE is a mixture of 3 different types of particles: small, medium and large sizes. The three together will form snow with optimum freezing qualities. This mixture has been tested to give the optimum result against pests.
Killing the Bed Bugs
When the CO2 snow hits surfaces at normal temperatures it evaporates and becomes CO2 gas. During this process energy is required and this heat energy is extracted from the immediate surroundings. If Bed Bugs are part of the immediate surroundings the energy is taken from them and extreme cooling results, the water in their cells crystallizes to ice, killing the insects. This crystallization occurs when the pest is cooled to -20ºC to -30ºC. Material will only be chilled on the surface. Most materials have the ability to transport energy from their larger mass. This results in relatively small drops in temperature here. CRYONITE’s particles are optimized for reaching the pest, and clinging to it.
