Heat Treatment is a proven method that is used every day on a wide variety of commodities including complex machinery with electronics and has been proven a safe and effective means of BMSB Treatment compliance for Australia and New Zealand. Heat treatment involves placing multiple temperature sensors and raising the temperature of the air around the product to a minimum 57 degrees Celsius for a sustained period of 30 minutes. Smart Play has several methods of placing temperature sensors however product may need to be moved to accommodate correct placement. Additionally, to ensure proper transfer of heated air, any shipment coverings or shrink wrap will need to be cut and partially or fully removed to allow proper heat transfer. While product damage during any stage of treatment is unlikely, Smart Play and any of its affiliates used during treatment or product handling will not be held responsible if any damages or issues occur during or after treatment is completed.
