A tough and precise custom module designed by Burkert Fluid Control Systems is giving a boost to pioneering New Zealand exporter, Envirosafe Technologies International Limited.

Envirosafe Technologies has won international accolades for its mosquito trapping system. The company's flagship system, the Mega-Catch Ultra, uses an ingenious combination of stimuli to attract the insects, mimicking human attributes including movement, colour, heat and - with the aid of Burkert's module - a biological presence.

The Mega-Catch Ultra emits carbon dioxide (CO2), thereby imitating human breathing.

The Mega-Catch Ultra has been independently tested in New Zealand and the US as superior to leading market competitors.

General Manager of Bürkert Fluid Control Systems in New Zealand, Brian McMath designed and delivered the modular component, designed to handle gas delivery in the Mega-Catch Ultra, directly to Envirosafe's local mosquito trap assembly plant.

Envirosafe stated that prior to their collaboration with Burkert, they purchased all the gas delivery system components individually and put them together themselves.

This was a time consuming operation, in terms of sourcing the system components, handling logistics and then actually putting everything together.

The Burkert module has helped improve Envirosafe’s product and facilitated their push into the highly regulated US market.

The gas control module is delivered finished, tested and certified directly to Envirosafe assembly factory and is easily fitted to the main unit.

This has considerably decreased unit assembly time and improved Quality Assurance, with outsourced fluid control experts now responsible for that end of the system.
