Pest-Heat is Your Solution for IPPC Standards
In response to international shipping regulations of non-manufactured wood-packing materials, Pest-Heat has developed a new technology of heat treatment systems. With the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) regulations, Pest-Heat offers an easy, cost-effective solution. Pest Heat's self contained, portable chamber system offers an easy, cost effective solution for international regulations. The system ensures complete heat treatment certification for wood pallets, wood products, dunnage and crating.
Pest-Heat's Chamber System is not just an oven or kiln, but a new technology for the treatment of coniferous and non-coniferous wood packing materials. The systems uses a controlled environment of high-temperature forced air in a chamber to permanently and safely eradicate pests. The patented system is a fast, safe, portable and cost-effective alternative to chemical solutions such as Methyl Bromide or chemical pressure impregnation for pest control.

USDA Compliant Export Device
Pest-Heat chambers are compliant with E.U.56/30 and IPPC requirements as an export device for the pine wood nematode and other pests. The chamber destroys insects and pests in pallets, wood products, packing materials and equipment. Pest-Heat pioneered the treatment and management of pests through the use of their patent-pending heat treatment process and equipment. The Pest-Heat Chamber System was developed in partnership through many years of testing and data collection. Working in partnership with the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) and the United States Army Center for Health Promotion and Preventive Medicine (CHPPM), the Pest-Heat chamber is by far the most effective and economical heat treatment system for the control of pests.

Pest-Heat Precise Airflow Design Reduces Treatment Time
US Patent # 6,612,067 & US Patent # 6,678,994
Pest-Heat's patented chamber system utilizes heat within a confined area to create an environment proven to be effective in the eradication of infested pests. Between 400,000 to 2,000,000 Btu/h. of heat is pumped through the specially designed, perforated flooring at over 10,750 CFM. The heat rises through the floor and fills the chamber upward, creating the necessary temperature to kill pests living within the products.
Fast and Accurate
The chamber is sealed and the heat treatment process is initiated. Non-manufactured wood packing material is heated until the product reaches a core temperature of 133°F for 30 minutes or desired temperature. Temperatures within the chamber are monitored and recorded using software and data recorders.
Ready to Stamp and Ship
After treatment, materials are unloaded, stamped and ready for use. Pest-Heat kills insects and other pests living within wood pallets, packing materials, wood products and other commodities.
Effective & Low-Cost Operation
Pest-Heat designed the Chamber System for high-capacity and fast treatment times. The portable chamber requires an electrical connection, a gas hook-up (of propane or natural gas) and a level foundation to become fully operational. No other system available today offers the same effectiveness and low cost operation.
