Heat treatment ovens are primarily wood drying ovens. The temperature of wood materials is measured from 13 different points in the furnace by using PT100 temperature meters in accordance with the regulation. A temperature of 56 °C or higher is applied to wooden packaging materials for at least 30 minutes after the internal temperature reaches a minimum temperature of 56 °C. The process is completed by recording the data and printing these data.
The purpose of this process is ISPM15 (International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures No 15) developed by the International Plant Protection Union.
This process is applied to raw wood packaging materials to prevent the spread of pests that pose a threat to planted trees. These; Includes wooden packaging materials such as pallets, packaging support, crates, reels, packaging blocks, loading boards, pallet arms and skids.
ISPM 15 is an International Phytosanitary Measure developed by the International Plant Protection Union (IPPC) that directly addresses the need to process wood materials thicker than 6mm used to transport crops between countries.
Its main purpose is to prevent the international transport and spread of diseases and insects that may adversely affect plants or ecosystems. ISPM 15 affects all wood packaging materials that require removal of wood bark followed by heat treatment with methyl bromide or fumigation, stamping or marking. These; Includes wooden packaging materials such as pallets, packaging support, crates, reels, packaging blocks, loading boards, pallet arms and skids.
In this regard, heat treatment ovens must be produced to meet international standards.
