Bird Flu (Avian Influenza) Heat Treatment

HPAI Virus Elimination Removal. 24/7 Rapid Response. Turnkey Services.

Bounce back from bird (avian) flu, with our heat control and containment services. Sunbelt Rentals has the trained technicians, heat treatment equipment and advanced thermal remediation knowledge to protect your flock, farm or barn from bird flu.

To eradicate the virus, the USDA recommends the introduction of sustained heat for a period of seven days. To achieve these conditions, we utilize our large fleet of industrial heating equipment for rent, and more specifically, our indirect-fired heaters. We also exclusively offer the Sunbelt Air Monitoring System (SAMS), a wireless performance measurement tool built for monitoring job site conditions. By utilizing the SAMS units, we are able to record results and ensure the continued achievement of specified conditions.

How Heat Kills the Virus

The USDA-approved heat treatment method is essential to ensuring your poultry, turkey and egg barns, as well as other associated facilities, return to full working order with the least amount of interruption. The federal agency showed support for our heat treatment application at a poultry farm with the following statement released in the FY2016 HPAI Response Document:

"…scientific evidence at this time demonstrates that heat treatment is effective at eliminating HPAI virus. To-date, application of heat treatment following this guidance has successfully eliminated HPAI virus."

This heating process, also known as thermal remediation, uses intense heat to disinfect and destroy the highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) virus in infected areas. Although other methods are available, heat treatment is the most efficient, cost-effective process to stop HPAI, including the H5N1 and H5N2 mutations, from spreading throughout your flock and into surrounding farms. From site surveys and planning to installation and monitoring, we move fast and work with you to provide complete HPAI virus eradication.
