The Pest Heat TPE-500 Propane Heat System delivers controlled, evenly distributed heat throughout a structure for several hours with high volumes of air movement. While temperatures are being recorded and monitored, internal temperatures are slowly raised in the space to a target temperature of 121°F to 140°F and then held for three hours. Achieving this temperature in the cracks, crevices, and hard to reach places, including furniture, is necessary for the heat to effectively penetrate and kill the entire life cycle of bed bugs, including eggs. Temperatures are then monitored and recorded remotely from numerous temperature sensors placed strategically throughout the room using the TEGAM system. This safe, non-chemical, environmentally-friendly approach is the most efficient heat treatment method for insect eradication without harming the environment. The powerful Pest Heat Heater will also kill fleas, ticks, termites, spiders, roaches, stored pests such as Grain Beetles, and most other insects.

With more and more chemicals being taken off the market, using heat to treat termites is a growing industry. There is an uptick in using this strategy on the West Coast of the United States and the Hawaiian Islands. The TPE-500 is being used to treat Dry Wood Termites and Formosan Termites. In the USA, there 45 different species of termites with the two most common to kill with heat being the Dry Wood Termites and Formosan Termites. This strategy is being utilized because of the ease of getting heat to penetrate the areas where termites live inside of structures. As we see this trend becoming more common in the western part of the United States, our experts can help you expand to using propane heat in your pest control market with on-site training for the Pest Heat TPE-500 Propane Heat System.

The Pest Heat TPE-500 is the original and most imitated single-phase, direct-drive propane bed bug heater on the market. It produces 500,000 BTUs per hour and easily achieves target kill temperatures of 121°F to 140°F in areas as large as 2,500 square feet with 8 high-temperature fans (not included).

The TPE-500 comes standard with safety features that make it stand out from the competition. It has a 1st stage red propane regulator, 2nd stage green fisher propane regulator, and three RV53 propane regulators to reduce the total pressure to under 3 psi. This protects from uneven distribution of the propane gas and prevents flames from protruding out the front of the barrel in bursts. The heater package includes a 50’ propane hose so the propane tanks can be safely stored further from the treatment space than with the typical 25’ hose. The steel barrel is powder coated so that flaking will not occur as it does with painted barrels. The Pest Heat propane bed bug heater is assembled by Sunbelt/Temp Air in an ISO 9,000 quality-controlled factory. These unique safety features make this heater a top choice for pest control professionals.

The Pest-Heat TPE-500 Propane Heat System can be found in an ever-expanding number of markets that include pest control providers, property managers, hotels, universities, camps, food processing plants, silos or grain bins, the pallet industry, and the military. It is intended for professional use only.
