At HTI, our mission is to innovate and commercialize technologies associated with heat and mass transfer.  We are passionate about delivering value-adding, revolutionary thermal solutions for industry.

Our success is measured by the benefits realized and the spread of application areas in which we serve.  Our patented technology enables our products to increase heat and mass transfer by “charging the air” so that the available energy is more efficiently transferred to material to evaporate water, solvents, etc.  Other solutions can improve cooling, heating, mixing, reduce emissions, or create a high efficiency water heating devices.


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

Our Timeline

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 the Spectra HE™ Ultra Drying System was developed and made commercial.  HTI has applied for a patent on this technology. 
Currently, HTI is involved in the development of higher efficient, water-based energy equipment for consumer and commercial applications.  The design is based on core HTI patented technology.
