Container fumigation

Container fumigation is the treatment of a commodity or the container itself to eliminate the risk of pests or disease from entering or leaving the country or state.

A container normally comes in two sizes:

  • 20’ and 40’ containers (although you can also get 10’, 45’ containers as well as what is called a “High Cube”).
  • Most containers are 8.6’ high where as a “High Cube” is 9.6’ high.

Container fumigation solutions

There are two main ways to fumigate containers:

  • Pressure Decay - Pressure decay fumigation involves the pressure testing of the container to a value. If the container can maintain that value for time duration then the container is classified as “Gas Tight” and therefore may be fumigated without being covered with a tarp to provide a seal for fumigation.
  • Tarped Fumigation - Tarped fumigation is when no pressure decay is used or the container fails pressure decay. The container is covered with a gas proof fumigation tarp and sand snaked around all of the edges to achieve and maintain a gas seal.

Commodity fumigation is the treatment of a product by a gas, chemical or other process to eliminate the risk of a pest infestation.

A commodity can be described as anything from grain to personal effects imported or exported from one country or state to another.

The commodity can be by itself (loose or LCL – loose container load), in container (FCL – full container load), silo or ship.
