The insect killer, an effective fly trap.
Fly killers, also known as electric fly traps, are a professional solution to effectively eliminate flies.
An electric insect killer (also called a fly killer or insect trap) is an essential device for getting rid of pests. By attracting and electrocuting flies and other flying insects, your food areas remain hygienic and free of unwanted insects.
An insect killer is a luminous electric device
with ultraviolet rays
which attracts flying insects and then destroys them, either by electrification or by gluing.
The insect killers work with powerful lamps emitting UVA light, the trap becomes very attractive for flies, as well as for many other flying insects.
There are 2 families of insect killers, each with a different method of elimination:
Sometimes simply called glue traps, these insect killers will attract flies, which by circling the lamps the insects are captured by an adhesive plate.
This type of fly trap requires a little maintenance (the adhesive strips must be changed regularly), it has the advantage of being completely silent.
Attracting insects with its UV lamps, the electric insect killer or destroyer has a powerful electric grid that will eliminate by electrocution the insects touching it. Destruction by electrification: the insects are struck by a high voltage grid fed by a transformer supplying this high voltage at low intensity. The insects are collected in a removable tray at the bottom of the device.
Insects are attracted to UVA radiation (between 315 and 400 nm), with a peak attraction at 368 nm.
Our flying insect killers are equipped with lamps or UVA tubes that reproduce the highest UVA attraction peak.
Once the insect is attracted by the light, it is destroyed in 2 different ways: by glue or by electricity.
Philips photometric data
The average life of a lamp is 9,000 hours. However, the luminous flux of a lamp gradually decreases. The useful life is the number of hours after which a lamp emits only 80% of its light output. This is 5,000 hours (6 to 7 months), the recommended time after which a lamp should be replaced to maintain optimum efficiency.

BRC offers a range of LED lighting. Using this technology allows you to reduce your electricity consumption by half compared to conventional actinic lighting.
Even though the purchase price of LED tube/light is higher, their service life is much longer (2 years warranty for tubes and 3 years warranty for lamps).
Our LED lighting range can be mounted on all BRC insect killers equipped with fluorescent tubes, without any modifications.
As an option or standard, the high quality Teflon® (PTFE) sheaths prevent any risk of glass splinters being projected while maintaining the intensity of the light.
The protection rating represents a level of protection provided by the enclosure of an electrical device. Its definition is recorded in an international standard of the Electrotechnical Commission, relating to the sealing.
The protection rating is indicated by two letters “IP”, followed by two numbers that vary.
The products that BRC sells can be adapted to different environments and aggressive conditions. We offer 5 types of protection:
Protects the device against solid objects larger than 12 mm and no protection against liquid objects.
Protects the device against solid objects larger than 12 mm and against vertical drops of water.
Protects the unit from dust and water splashes from all directions.
Fully protects the unit against dust and water jets from all directions (22.5 mm nozzle, 12.5 l/min).

Stainless steel is mainly composed of iron, nickel and chromium alloys. The strength of stainless steel comes mainly from its composition. BRC offers different types of stainless steel that can be used under different conditions.

430 stainless steel contains a very small amount of nickel. With little resistance to corrosion, it is ideal for less demanding environments.
Stainless steel 304 is the most commonly used type in the food industry. It has a brilliant shine due to a high level of chrome and nickel. It is highly resistant to corrosion and rust, although it is susceptible to corrosion caused by exposure to salt.
It is the second most common type of stainless steel and its alloy includes an additional element, molybdenum, which increases its resistance to corrosion caused by salt and other chemicals.
“The many possibilities of IoT have dictated that we choose technologies that address unmet needs to generate more value than just traps.”
BRC INTEGRATES NEW TECHNOLOGIES INTO ITS PRODUCTS IN AN APPROPRIATE MANNER.
At BRC, we support our customers’ development through innovation. This contribution of competitiveness stimulates their growth and consequently ours. We create technologies that serve our customers and adapt to their practices, not the other way around. Our project methodology is based on 3 pillars: monitoring of new technologies, analysis of customer needs and projection of expected benefits. In this context, the notion of “IoT” (Internet of Things) and the needs of our customers have given rise to several ideas in our business.
The IOT functions that contribute to our customers’ competitiveness are: performance measurements, status indicators, alert thresholds, repetitive operations and failures. The service provided by the traps is the capture of unwanted flying insects. Catch counts therefore measure the performance of the service provided. The saturation rate of the glue plates indicates the status of the remaining capacity.
The indexing of a configurable alert threshold on this rate allows to optimize this repetitive task of changing plates. This makes it easier to replace them when necessary, avoids unnecessary costs due to premature replacement and improves service continuity by eliminating already saturated plates. We have also included alerts for the most common causes of failure, power failure and UVA source malfunction.
BRC responded to the market with the innovative TrapManager® device that allows PCOs to monitor their trap fleet. Equipped with an HD camera, he photographs the glue sheet 5 times a day. It then counts the captures and calculates the saturation rate of the plate. Via 3G, it then sends this data and the status of the device to the BRC server. This information then allows PCOs to provide a unique consulting service.
They may indicate symptomatic variations of an abnormal infestation. The user can then look for the cause and make corrections to preserve his production. It also provides unparalleled traceability to meet HACCP practices and regulatory requirements.
BRC products meet European and international requirements and comply with CE, UKCA and IECEE standards.
