GreenTech Heat Sterilizes and Disinfects
Verified by independent lab testing
Every living organism has a thermal death point. This statement applies to viruses as well. The Titan 800 portable direct-fired heater generates up to 990,000 BTU. We heated our test chamber with a Titan 800 to “lethal” temperatures and achieved a sterilization as determined by Geobacillus stearothermophilus surrogate testing. The process indiscriminately treats the entirety of the structure and its contents. As long as the required temperatures are achieved throughout the structure for the required amount of time, the structure is disinfected. Both time and temperature can be empirically measured and confirmed.
The Titan 800 is made in the USA and comes with our exclusive 2-year repair or replace warranty. Click here to purchase the Titan 800 heater.
The GreenTech Heat sanitization process can be applied to sterilize equipment and PPE items in an existing room within a health care center. Office buildings, restaurants, and government buildings can be efficiently sanitized. GreenTech Heat has also developed a stand-alone, 1,280 cubic-foot heat chamber that allows for sterilization treatments of larger items including furniture, mattresses, and gurneys, items on pallets, garments on hangars, and items on wire shelves in open-mesh wire baskets. This sterilization process is not recommended for any item that cannot withstand exposure to highly-convected and heated air at a minimum temperature of 66°C/150°F. A lower level of sanitization may be achieved when items and/or the treatment area cannot withstand sterilization temperatures.
The GreenTech Heat process was applied to disinfect a postmortem bacterial contamination in June of 1999. The owner of a Costa Mesa, California had died and the body had remained in situ for 25 days. Bacterial samples were taken before and after heat treatment. Prior to the treatment, Forensic Analytical Laboratories determined 101 bacterial colonies and 129,000 cfu/g (Colony-Forming Units per gram) of bacterial contamination. After treatment, the laboratory measured one bacterial colony with 2,100 cfu/g of contamination. The two-day treatment resulted in a 98.4% reduction in bacteria in the condo.
What People Say
We had one of your competition’s white propane heaters that cost about half as much as your Titan. You get what you pay for. Compared to our new Titan, it’s like racing a Volkswagen with a Maserati. The other guys just can’t keep up!

Sterilization is a crucial metric in all clean environments. One accepted method to test a specific environment for sterilization efficacy is through the use of biological surrogate indicators. Geobacillus stearothermophilus is a suitable microorganism for testing the effectiveness of sterilization protocols using heat or steam, given the bacteria’s high heat resistance.
GreenTech Heat Solutions conducted internal testing on 13 April 2020. A Titan 800 direct fired heater was utilized to heat the test chamber to 121°C/250°F. Three separate SporView strips were tested for three different times. The SporView strips and controls were tested by Natural Link Mold Lab. The report on strip deactivation is included in this document. Laboratory results show the spore strips were sterilized with exposure of 30 minutes to 121°C/250°F.
Geobacillus stearothermophilus spores withstand temperatures of 121°C/250°F for up to 12 minutes (Thwaite, 2012; Wells-Bennik, 2019). The GreenTech Heat process applied with a GreenTech Heat Titan 800 heated the test chamber to “lethal” temperatures and achieved a sterilization as determined by surrogate testing.
No job is too large or too small for the Titan 800! The Titan 800 produces more than 990,000+ BTU, and treats more than 4,000 square feet in 8 hours. This direct fired bed bug heater weighs just 140 pounds. Perfect for single-family homes and multi-unit housing, the Titan 800 is easily set up by one person and may be used with 25 gallon propane tanks. The integrated 18” fan on the Titan 800 moves more than 5,000 cfm— more than any other direct-fired bed bug heater on the market. Treatments are safe for chemically-sensitive customers and flush fresh air into and throughout the structure. This technology may eliminate micro-organisms in the treatment area. The heater’s longer barrel increases air pressure and can drive air up three or four stories, making multi-story treatments easy.

Direct fired heaters are typically operated outside the treatment area and the energy from the direct fired heating unit is ducted into the room from outside the building. The Titan 800 freshens air and reduces allergens by utilizing an ‘open system’ treatment and more than 5,000 cubic feet of fresh, heated air is flushed through the treatment area each minute.
Because of the amount of energy and heat produced by these heaters, a technician must always be present to monitor the heater and the treatment area. Direct fired systems require a propane tank and hoses. We had our portable direct fired insect heaters tested for emissions safety in 2000. The Titan 800 surpasses all OSHA requirements for potential employee exposure to hazardous gasses, including carbon monoxide, during heat treatments.
All GreenTech Heat direct fired heaters come with a 2-year repair or replace warranty. Direct fired heat packages do not include the propane tank. Each of our direct fired heat packages comes standard with the Bed Bug Heat Treatment Field Guide and our exclusive Master Heat Technician Certification, and include fans, all propane hoses, and regulators.

We designed the Titan 800 direct fired bed bug heaters for safety and operator convenience. Each Titan 800 is easy to maneuver and the handles make loading and unloading easy. The longer barrel of the Titan 800 increases air pressure and makes treatments safer by reducing flame-out. The large, solid tires make transportation around a job site nearly effortless.
Both Titan heaters are portable and can be transported and stored upright to save space. All GreenTech Heat heaters come with a 2-year repair or replace warranty.
Because of the convected energies created by the GreenTech Heat Titan heaters, we do not recommend residents re-enter the property until temperatures have cooled to 85°F.
