About Us


At HTI, our mission is to discover and develop technologies associated with heat and mass transfer.  We are passionate about delivering innovative, revolutionary thermal solutions for industry.

Our success is measured by the benefits realized and the patents awarded – 4. Our technology enables our products to increase drying by “charging the air” so that the available energy is more efficiently transferred to material to evaporate water, solvents, etc. Other solutions can improve mixing, reduce emissions, or create a high efficiency water heating devices.
The benefits of our technology include:

  • Increased throughput and associated product cost reduction
  • Reduction of  energy consumption
  • Optimized operation of the technological equipment
  • Reduction of carbon footprint
  • Reductions of carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides emissions
  • Smaller footprint
  • Compact and low maintenance 

These technologies are available by purchasing our products or through consulting services with clients.  HTI is also actively developing other products that have broad application to business and consumer markets.



Heat Technologies, Inc (HTI) was formed in Atlanta, Georgia in 1996. 

Our Timeline

1996 - 1997
The company developed the Spectra High Efficiency Dryer Technology based on pulse combustion technology.  This technology has been used for a variety of applications, such as water heating, conveyer drying, etc. In April 2001, a US Patent was issued for this technology.

HTI developed the Impulse Deposit Removal System which removes deposits from a variety of industrial and utility boilers. In February 2003 a US Patent was issued for this technology.

HTI enhanced its drying system to run on electricity.  As a result and new Spectra HE™ Ultra Drying System was developed and being commercialized. HTI has applied for a patent on this technology. 

Currently HTI is involved in the development of new water boiler/water heating equipment for consumer and commercial applications.  The design is based on its patented technology.
