Heat Treatment

Heat Treatment is an effective solution for insect control in wooden packaging material (ISPM 15), warehouses, monumental buildings, factories and antiques, based on increased temperatures.

    What is the heat treatment technique?

    The Heat Treatment Technique is particularly applied to Wood Packaging Material used for export according to international regulations. Heat Treatment can be applied in special climate rooms or anywhere with a mobile installation. The treatment controls the temperature with a temperature range from 56 to 75°C (132 to 167°F), depending on the quarantine and pre-shipment regulations of the country concerned. The goods will be closely monitored as the temperature is increased slowly to protect the goods from damage. This treatment is applied to all kinds of wood and packaging material and is compliant with the ISPM No.15 guidelines.
