PINCIPLE OF WEED REMOVAL WITH HOT WATER
WEEDING WITHOUT PESTICIDE USING HOT WATER
Thermal weed control or killing weeds with hot water causes the explosion of plant cells and denaturation of proteins. The treatment is improved by darkening of the green parts of the plant.
Water is one of the best natural energy carriers and gravity ensures maximum connectivity to deliver maximum damage.
The biological activity is stopped at the level of aerial parts.
The plant languishes. The annual treatment requires 3-4 passages to contain vegetation.
Hot water weed control requires fewer treatments, no additives to kill weeds and cost’s significantly less in comparison to other alternatives.
While air is another energy carrier, hot air rises by nature, making steam methods weaker and much less effective than the Oeliatec system.
All Oeliatec weed control machines kill weeds with 100% hot water by delivering an efficient low pressure treatment at temperatures of up to 120C. This destroys the cellular structure of the weed to kill off the plant, which is worn down further by each treatment to eventually kill the root, along with moss and algae which can also be removed at the same time.
