Oak Creek Wood Products: Heat Treatment and KDHT Pallets
Why heat treat wood pallets?
The heat treatment process is designed to sanitize and kill live insects and their larvae that may lurk in wood pallets, also preventing mold growth and infestation during shipping. While shipping pallets can be treated with chemicals, heat treating is safe for storing and shipping goods while also protecting the global supply chain from contamination.
The Oak Creek Wood Products Heat Treatment Process

In specialized kilns that fit all sizes of shipping pallets, we bring our wood pallets up to temperature and keep them there long enough to sanitize the wood.

ISPM-15 Standard for Heat-Treated Shipping Pallets
The ISPM-15 Standard for phytosanitary measures requires that wood pallets or crates used for exporting purposes are treated to kill any wood-borne pests. The most widely used method to comply with ISPM-15 is heat treatment. This is achieved by maintaining a constant core temperature of 135°F for a minimum of 30 minutes.
