The Vapor Shark is an easy-to-use, portable system. It treats areas up to 50,000 ft3 (10,000 ft3 per membrane and unit is designed to
hold up to five membranes) to effectively eliminate odor contamination quickly and safely. Primarily intended for delivering a fast,
high-intensity treatment, it uses Vaportek's patented spill-proof essential oil membranes to release a nontoxic, odor-neutralizing dry
vapor into the air. Penetrating vapor quickly controls and eliminates malodor caused by smoke, humidity, food, and biological odors,
among others. Based on proven technology originally developed for use in medical facilities, the Vapor Shark sets the standard for
treating an area’s atmosphere, structure, and contents simultaneously.
The Vapor Shark is intended for application where quick results are desired. Place on a firm, stable surface in a relatively high
location. Can be used freestanding or permanently installed to air handling systems. For initial treatment, open air inlet a half-inch.
After 10-15 minutes, adjust air inlet as necessary to either reduce vapor output (close inlet) or increase vapor output (open farther).
When unit is not in use, membrane life may be extended by securely closing the air inlet opening and the front access door. To
accelerate the dissipation period of the characteristic Vaportek fragrance, ventilate by opening windows and turning on floor fans.
Deodorization may require as little as 15-60 minutes for light contamination. For more severe contamination, treatment may take
several hours or days. If necessary, move the unit to different areas. As with any electrical device, do not locate or use near water.
For best results, store membranes in a cool, dry location and keep away from extreme heat. Dry vapor output will be affected by
humidity, airflow, and temperature. Ideal dry vapor release occurs at 50-80°F. Vapor release significantly increases in excess of 90°F.
Aluminum construction. No evacuation or recovery period is required with Vaportek technology. Not designed for continuous,
long-term operation. Membrane life is approximately 270 hours. The system does not create moisture or ozone, and will not harm
fabric, plants, rubber, adhesives, electrical components, or remove pigment from leather. Vaportek products use natural essential
oils. If an allergic reaction occurs, please discontinue use immediately. Wash hands with soap after handling membranes. Do not
allow membranes to come in contact with finished surfaces. Dimensions: 14"H x 8"W x 17"L. Weight: 10 lbs. Convenient 2” O.D.
couplings allow connection to standard hoses for precise dry vapor delivery. Five year limited warranty. CSA and CUL listed.

People often ask whether Vaportek’s technology masks or truly eliminates malodors. The answer: Vaportek eliminates organic odors.
Odor Masking vs. Odor Neutralization
To mask is to increase overall odor intensity in order to forcibly “cover-up” an existing malodor. This means introducing a new odor that is more powerful smelling than the problematic odor you wanted to eliminate. It results in a further bombardment of perceived scents that does nothing to eliminate the source of the original malodor.
To neutralize is to eliminate or cause malodorous molecules to be imperceptible on a molecular level through direct counteractant measures with an additional compound, in this case, our essential oil compound comprised of plant, flower, and tree extracts. Malodor molecules are then changed through chemical interaction, called odor-pairing or encapsulation, into a new molecular form that either no longer smells or that is not volatile enough to be perceived. In this way, the malodorous molecule is lessened to the point of nonexistence as it has been broken down beyond recognition.
When Vaportek’s essential oil compounds are volatilized into the air as a dry vapor, they react directly with odorous molecules in the air. This molecular, chemical interaction allows Vaportek’s products to effectively neutralize organic malodors.
Why Essential Oils?
While Vaportek does introduce an additional fragrance (which some incorrectly attribute to masking) due to our complex formula of naturally occurring essential oils, it is the exact complexity of our oil formula that goes one step further to effectively eliminate the source of the malodourous molecules through encapsulation or odor-pairing neutralization technology. While there are many essential oils, not all of them are capable of neutralizing organic odors such as smoke, urine, skunk, and mildew. Vaportek has carefully crafted the correct blend of oils required for effective and permanent odor elimination. This is why Vaportek’s technology is so unique. Our formula of essential oils offer a broad spectrum neutralization of odor causing elements like aldehyde, amine, diamine, sulfide, lactone, carboxylic acid, ester, carbylamines, ketone, and other carbons.
It is thanks to our essential oils that Vaportek may proudly claim to offer our customers a green solution for their malodor issues rather than be forced to seek out harsh chemicals and ozone producing products. Many existing odor eliminating solutions expose both occupants and the professionals using the equipment to health issues like respiratory disease and lung damage. These products can cause harm to our natural environment too. Our technology is CFC-free, nontoxic, and VOC compliant.
Why Dry Vapor?
Vaportek further distinguishes itself from competitors with our dry vapor delivery technique which adds zero moisture to the treatment area and is otherwise imperceptible beyond the aroma of essential oils. Our technology doesn’t produce any harmful ozone or hydroxyl, doesn’t involve any fogging equipment, and isn’t as messy or sticky as gels and sprays. Dry vapor compounds have high mobility in the air and are able to safely penetrate porous substances such as wallboard, wood, carpeting, cement, insulation, and other surfaces in a way that competitors’ products cannot.
Vaportek is the pioneering force behind essential oil, dry vapor technology. Vaportek is years ahead of imitation products crafted by companies who are still struggling to achieve the ideal balance of what we discovered and perfected in 1979. Place your trust in Vaportek and our original blend of oils for effective and permanent odor elimination. Beyond our 100% guarantee, we promise impeccable customer service, fair pricing, and a commitment to offer you an environmentally friendly solution for your organic odor problems.
