Very soon, it will no longer be possible to use methyl bromide to control insect infestation. Managers of food facilities looking for an effective substitute can now rely on insect heat treatment equipment from Armstrong.

For years, the fumigant methyl bromide has been the chemical of choice for controlling insect infestations in bins, silos, and hard-to-access storage and processing areas. Unlike methyl bromide treatment, spot insect heat treatment with Armstrong steam heaters is a cost-effective method of controlling insect outbreaks without having to shut down the entire plant.

Portable and permanent heaters use plant steam to provide quick, on-demand heat treatments even during production hours. Typically, heat treatment costs are less, per application, than chemical treatment. What’s more, less downtime means greater production and, ultimately, more profit.
