Lyson evaporator - 120 ml
Evaporation system of formic acid - Poland is becoming very much used and promising in the fight against varroasis. The vaporizers are simple cheap formic acid applicators.
Wool must be allowed to soak up with 65% formic acid in a suitable closure container with lid. The evaporation time is the same as for all evaporation systems also from the season, temperature and humidity ratios. The acid evaporation time is is about + -4 days, when it is used for summer use at temperatures around 25 ° C, higher temperatures, the evaporation time may be shorter.
Formic acid is the simplest of carboxylic acids, but it is very strong organic acid, therefore it is necessary to take care of handling it safety measures, especially when working with open acid and dilution. I recommend that everyone use a respirator with a filter to protect them from work organic acids, strong rubber gloves and suitable clothing. The problem remains the inaccessibility of formic acid at the required 65% concentration a the necessity of its dilution with water from 85% acid in a ratio of 3:1, which is common distributed by vendors.
