Welcome to Heat Technologies, Inc.

At HTI, we are passionate about the business of heat and mass transfer since our inception in 1996. Our research and development has been focused on the various instabilities created by heat and high velocity mass flows.  We have perfected the technology for organizing these flows into one highly efficient oscillating stream and directing this stream onto materials for the benefit of commercial, industrial and residential processes. Whether the heat source is created by fossil fuels or electricity, the resulting air is applied to the process in a highly organized, oscillating or charged fashion. As a result we have developed products and been awarded 3 patents (and 1 pending) in advanced drying, heating, and pressure wave technologies for use in commercial applications. Under the trademark Spectra HE™ (High Efficiency). We have listed three product lines on the website. Additional products are under development.

Operating benefits of our technology are substantial and measurable. They are:

  • Increased throughput
  • Reduced energy consumption
  • High reliability
  • Smaller equipment footprint
  • Low maintenance
  • Emissions reduction

For specific details, please visit our products page.

To understand our technology let's define some terms:

  • Heat transfer - transition of thermal energy or simply heat from a hotter object to a cooler object
  • Mass transfer - process of transferring mass (water, water vapor, solvent, solvent vapor, etc.) from one media to another (from solids to air, from coated materials to air, etc.)
  • Oscillation - reversible organized pressure wave

We have been working for over 13 years to master the interaction of all of the above. We have found that heat and sound can be used to “charge the air” so that fluids, solvents or water which are bound to film, metal, paper, cardboard, etc. are released (dried), at a higher rate than using heat alone.  The results, we believe, are revolutionary, even amazing.  This technology Spectra HE™ (High Efficiency) Technology is the driving force behind our products.

Using the Spectra HE™ Technology we have developed a product that addresses the needs of a variety of applications.  The HTI Spectra HE™ Ultra Drying System is an electrically powered drying system for the printing and coating industry. In production this system significantly reduces energy consumption, increases press throughput at the same or lower production air temperature.   Spectra HE™ Ultra Drying System can be adapted to fit any manufacturer's or end user's converting, printing and narrow web flexographic equipment.

Another product line is used for the cleaning of production surfaces for boilers or pollution control equipment. In this application the Spectra HE™ Technology is used to direct heat and sound like a mini "sonic boom" to clean deposits formed on the heat transfer surfaces of boilers. This equipment operates using solid fuels. We call this - Spectra HE™ IDRS. This technology has been around for several years but was created and patented by HTI.

The Spectra HE™ Pulse Burner and Spectra HE™ Pulse Dryer are powered by fossil fuels.  Both systems offer accelerated heat transfer (direct and indirect), low NOx and CO emissions, advanced mixing and a compact heat exchanger.  In addition, we offer engineering services so that these techniques and technologies can be applied to various commercial, industrial and residential applications and processes.  We have worked with several major manufactures to improve their production processes and/or products.  If you have a manufacturing process or a product that involves heating, drying, incineration or other heat transfer processes we may be able to apply our technology to increase your bottom line either by reducing expenses or increasing performance and efficiency.

Adding HTI's Spectra HE™ Technology to your plant operations will improve the bottom line of your corporation either through reduced energy consumption, cost reductions or increased throughput. A further benefit will be reductions in green house gas emissions at a time when these issues are important to the world we live in.
