Powerful Bed Bug Heat Treatment that kills Bed Bugs and Bed Bug Eggs.
Our heat treatment for bed bugs is an environmentally-friendly and non-toxic treatment option without the use of chemicals. It is the safest and most effective bed bug eradication method that exists today.
- In the heating loop, the Heat Transfer Fluid (HTF) which is an environmentally benign water-propylene glycol solution is heated to 210F. The HTF is drawn from a 400 litre reservoir and pumped through dual coil heaters and back to the reservoir. The coil heaters are rugged coils of pipe with oil fired burners that are designed for mobile applications. The burners heat the HTF in the coils before it is returned to the reservoir. Up to 500,000 Btu/H of heat is generated in the system that draws either bio-diesel or diesel from the integral 250 litre fuel tank.
- Remote heat exchangers are placed in the areas that require insect eradication. Specially engineered rugged hoses are used to connect the remote heat exchangers to the PPC Heat Assault. The HTF is drawn from the reservoir and pumped through hoses into remote heat exchangers and back to the unit for reheating. Only the heat is left behind in the target area. The heat exchangers are radiators with fans. A wireless temperature sensing and data logging system allows PPC to track the temperatures of different locations in the target area. The goal is to rapidly raise the temperature to 120-140F. Once this is accomplished Bed Bugs (and other insects) and their larvae, pupae and eggs are killed. We have focused initially on bed bugs, but the system also works on virtually any other insect.
