HDS USA Becomes Managing Partner in Fosfoquim USA

Supplier News

Fosfoquim USA is responsible for the marketing, sales, and service of the Horn Diluphos System (HDS) fumigation application technology in the United States.

| July 12, 2010

HARRISONBURG, Va.  -  HDS USA has completed the transaction of purchasing the ownership position of Dr. Jeremiah Sullivan, President of Sullivan & Associates of Harrisonburg, Va., in Fosfoquim USA Partners

Jeff Coleman and Jay Coleman of HDS USA, Reserve, La., will join Dr. Franciskus Horn of Fosfoquim S.A., Padre Hurtado – Santiago – Chile in this venture. Fosfoquim USA is responsible for the marketing, sales, and service of the Horn Diluphos System (HDS) fumigation application technology in the United States.

The Horn Diluphos System is a fumigation application technology that blends pure cylinderized phosphine (Vaporph3os - Cytec Industries), directly with air to safe and effective levels below the lower flammability limit (LFL), allowing its’ direct injection from outside of the targeted structure without risk of ignition. This unique introduction of phosphine avoids the potentially unsafe confined space entry usually required to apply the residue - producing solid metal phosphide formulations (tablets, pellets, and dust retaining packaging products). There are no residues generated in the HDS application, neither solid nor liquid that would require the potential deactivation and/or disposal procedures and issues associated with solid metal phosphide products. There are no environmental hazards as only hydrogen phosphide is applied, which is readily deactivated by sunlight upon ventilation into the atmosphere. There are no ammonia or CO2 emissions. The system relies on several safety mechanisms which have been proven safe and effective, even in serious incidents such as the loss of electrical power during the application procedure.

The Horn Diluphos System fumigation application technology has been widely tested and proven in applications to multiple storage facilities and structures, food processing mills, warehouses, flat houses, sea containers, silo bins, steel tanks, ground piles, fumigation chambers, and various other structures in the fumigation of raw agricultural commodities, processed foods, animal feed and feed ingredients, as well as to nonfood ingredients such as wood, dunnage, cotton and tobacco. The HDS equipment has been utilized in over 8000 fruit fumigations in Chile with great success. The HDS is widely used in Argentina, Australia, Chile, New Zealand, Uruguay, and the United States.

There are currently four models of the HDS equipment that are configured to meet most fumigation size and application requirements. Fosfoquim USA has moved its headquarters from Harrisonburg, Va. to its new base in Reserve, La.
