Quarantine Services | Heat Treatment

Our heat treatment services ensure you comply with quarantine import and export requirements, and are also used for treating non-quarantine items that contain pest infestation.

Heat treatment offers a toxic-gas free alternative for sterilization or devitalisation of products such as timber, grains, vehicles, bark products, Bali grass thatching, water hyacinth and many moss products.

The 3 types of heat treatment we offer in our Brisbane facility are Dry heat Treatment, ISPM 15 Heat Treatment and Moist Heat Treatment.

DRY HEAT TREATMENT

Is the most commonly used form of heat treatment and can vary in temperature and treatment intervals depending on the product.

MOIST HEAT TREATMENT

Uses the same process as Dry Heat Treatment, although with this form of treatment a moist vapor is introduced during the treatment process. This is done to avoid burning,warping or twisting of fragile products such as wooden artifacts.

ISPM 15 HEAT TREATMENT

Is used to treat wood packaging materials such as boxes, drums, crates, pallets, packing cases, and spools and reels, which are made from wood.
