The Heat Treatment Process with the

Modular Heat Injector System

The patented Heat Injector™ System uses a unique process to heat and distribute the air,

different than any of the competition...the most energy efficient heat treatment for bed bugs.  


The Heat Injector System was designed with the Operator in mind!



Preparation 

 The Heat Injector System has enough heating potential to allow the prepartion for the client to be quite simple.   They can let everything in the heat treatment area except those items that might be affected by heat such as plants, pets, medicines, candles and carbonated beverages.  The process requires very little clear space in the heat treatment area.  The Modular design allows it to be easily moved to where the bed bugs are located.  There are no external ducts and no noisy generators.  It plugs into any standard home outlet.

Heat Injector Placement

The Heat Injector is positioned to discharge heated air into the most remote locations in the space to be heated and to draw air from that same space to create an airflow whch causes the heat to migrate trough the area to be heated. 


The Heat Inector can be positioned within an outside doorway which allows it easy access to fresh air for the dedicated combustion blower and it keeps the motors out of the heat.  Install the Doorway Air Barrier to closeoff the space beside and above the Heat Injector as it sets in the doorway.  


The Heat Injector can also be positioned within the heated space with the use of the Air Shell.  The Air Shell is assembled to the Heat Injector to access fresh air through a 12 inch duct that runs within the heated area to a door or window.  The Air Shell also isolates the motors and controls from the heated environment during heat treatment process.


Heat Distribution

Fabric Discharge Ports, attached directly to the Heat Injector, allow the flexible and lightweight mylar duct to discharge the heated airflow to the most remote locations within the heat treatment area.  There are a variety of fabric duct connector options to adjust the lengths of 25' flexible duct and to split the heated airflow into multiple locations within the structure.  The  ductwork can be configured to fit every situation with up to 9 discharge locations.  


Cinch Selector Menu


Once the ductwork is positioned, turn on the airflow to ensure the adjustable bindings are secure and the lengh is adjusted well.  Some adjustment to the length may be required because the duct will expand to its maximize length with airflow.  The length can be adjusted by  by positioning a cinch connector in the middle of the duct and put more/less duct within the fabric connnector which prevents it from expanding.  Turn on the heat switch, set the desired discharge temperature and adjust the airflow to maximum.


When the heat is started, the operator installs duct management stands to stack the ductwork in narrow hallway to make it easier to access the heated areas.  Doorway drapes are also placed at the top of open doorways receiving the heated airflow to force the cooler air at the floor to exit. 


The Air Intake draws air from the structure to create and airflow from the discharge toward the Air Intake  The temperature on the Air Intake is monitored and displayed at the control panel to indicate the progress of the heat treatment.  The temperature rises when the structure and its contents can no longer absorb the heat in the discharge.  

The Pressurization Process

When the space is thoroughly heated, as indicated by Air Intake temperature in excess of about 125ºF.  The Pressurization Process is initiated by pulling a red knob to open an internal gate to allow more fresh air to be drawn in.  The Pressurizateion Damper is then adjusted to restrict the airflow through the Air intake and increase the fresh air intake.   This process puts more air into the structre than is being drawn from it to create a positive pressure within the structure to force heated air through cracks and openings where bed bugs might have found harborage.  


Purge the Heat when finished

With the Portable Heat Injector positioned as a barrier between the heated environment and the fresh air outside, there is an option to purge the heat from the structure to allow the client to return quickly.  To purge, the Doorway Air Barrier is removed and Heat Injector adjusted to draw fresh air into the Intake.  Open windows or doors to create an airflow to purge the ambient heat from the space.  The purge is done without heat, which allows the gas hoses to be packed while the structure cools off for the client’s return.  The purge should continue until the temperature within the structure can be controlled by the existing HVAC System.



Immediate Heat at Regulated Discharge Temperature

  The Heat Injector was designed to produce the desired discharge temperature immediately (within about 60 seconds).  The discharge temperature is continuously monitored and automatically controlled to maintain the operator chosen setpoint temperatures even when the airflow is adjusted.  The automatically controlled discharge temperature prevents damage from overheating.


Recirculated Airflow

  The patented Heat Injector System allows the heated airflow within the structure to be recirculated.  This unique difference allows the air within the structure to be continuously recirculated and injected with heat.  


The competition has to continually heat the  fresh air up to some high temperature, sufficient to offset the heat loss on the external duct and exhaust air from the structure to allow the heated air to be pushed in and immediately blend to hopefully achieve a non-destructive blended air temperature.

Energy Efficiency

   No generator is required; the Heat Injector is powered by propane and plugs into any standard 120 volt outlet to operate the Main Airflow Blower.


The Heat Injector System with the patent pending HP Boost™ feature senses the static load from the duct and boosts the horsepower to increase airflow and thus increasing the Btu energy transfer. The maximum speed and the static pressure to transition into HP Boost are preset at the factory. The speed control system for the main motor protects against under voltage and overload.

The Heat Injector System has a dedicated fresh air combustion blower which allows the direct gas-fired heat to be injected into the recirculated airflow. There is no heat loss from ducts located outside the heated environment. There is no air heated or moved that isn’t useful in the process.


Discreet Heat Treatment

  The heat treatment is not obvious to the whole neighborhood because there are no external ducts and no noisy equipment.  The Modular design allows the Heat Injector System to go where the bed bugs are; the Assembly can be broken down into modules and easily moved to the desired location and reassembled.

Professional Grade

   There are gas pressure gauges at the Gas Manifold and at the Heat Injector to best communicate the status of the gas supply to the Operator.  An Hour Meter indicates the accumulated hours the Heat Injector was used to heat air. The 20’ electrical cord eliminates the need for an extension cord in most applications. The High Temperature Limit on the discharge has an automatic reset. Basically no maintenance and with foam filled tires, they never have to be inflated.
