Swimming hall had to close due to cockroaches


Swimming hall had to close due to cockroaches.
The solution was a revolutionary heat treatment which turned out to be lethally effective

They say that cockroaches can survive an atomic blast, but now their days are numbered. The HeatWork method exterminated a cockroach infestation in a swimming hall in Vesterålen in record time.

The extermination company Pelias performed the work, using the innovative heating technologies of Narvik company HeatWork with outstanding results on their first try.

New environmentally and health friendly heat treatment

To exterminate the cockroaches, the entire hall was heated with great success.

HeatWork has specially developed products for the extermination branch, where the core of the products are based on over 100°C hydronic heat and the new CliWi heat exchangers. This provides an extremely energy-effective and environmentally friendly heat treatment, without harmful dangers such as burned dust, particles, or toxins.

Never done before on such a large scale

An extensive area and a formidable job was performed in only 3 days. Multiple HeatWork machines and personnel were involved in the operation, where over 6000 cubics of air was heated up towards 60 degrees, a temperature limit which kills the cockroaches.

“Everything was stone dead,” says sales leader Tommy Larsen at HeatWork. “It is pretty fantastic that our products break barriers in this branch, and master jobs like this on such a scale. That hasn’t been done before.”

Frantz Jakob Rygh at Pelias is happy that the treatment was successfully completely and that all the cockroaches are dead after just one treatment.

“We are extremely satisfied, when our customers can perform assignments at this level, with such success. It confirms that our equipment satisfies all needs,” says Rolf-Eirik Ivarsson at HeatWork.
