Enertec challenges the status quo and strives in all our work to reduce energy use and cost for our customers. We believe the information below will be a great resource for you.


It has been demonstrated that heat treatment is effective against a wide variety of pathogens, with no phytotoxic effects under proper system upkeep (Van Os, 2010). Unfortunately, operation costs are often high and directly dependent on the cost of natural gas, which may fluctuate significantly from year to year (National Energy Board, 2012). Potentially high costs may mean heat treatment is best employed for disinfecting the smaller amounts of water used in highly disease susceptible areas, such as those dedicated to plant propagation (Hong, 2005).

What Our Clients Think

  • My irrigation contamination problems despite years of ozone use have been solved by a far superior pasteurization system designed and supplied by Enertec Engineering. Enertec not only solved my problem but helped get the majority of my costs covered through efficiency incentive programs. The staff at Enertec proved to be both knowledgeable and helpful, ensuring a smooth installation and were a pleasure to deal with at every step of my project. The result is a pasteurizer system that saves me money, provides me peace of mind, and helps ensure that my irrigation water is clean. If you are looking for solutions, improved performance, or simply a well engineered system for peace of mind, I highly recommend giving Enertec a call and having chat about your challenges.
