Handheld infrared heater

for weed control

Thermal weed control methods can be used on practically all surfaces and always work according to the same principle. The application of thermal energy to the surface of the plants destroys the cell structure of the vegetative fibre.

The water which is transported from the root to the leaf cells evaporates and makes the plant dry up after a short time already. Furthermore, proteins are denatured whereby vital processes such as photosynthesis are being interrupted. As a result the damaged plant material dies. The ADLER Heaters use sophisticated infrared technology and offer a number of advantages compared to other methods.

  • Clear restriction of operating area
  • No noise exposure
  • Low gas consumption
  • Extremely short set-up times

Note on gas installations

The gas systems of devices for thermal weed control must be checked regularly to ensure safe operation of the system.

The inspection of these systems must be carried out by a “person qualified to inspect” and is carried out in accordance with the requirements of the accident prevention regulation “Use of liquid gas” (DGUV 79)

The inspection interval for the ADLER Heater gas systems is 2 years.

ADLER Arbeitsmaschinen GmbH & Co. KG carries out the initial inspection in cooperation with Westfalen AG.

We also recommend Westfalen AG for the upcoming recurring inspections, as they have technicians and service partners working throughout Germany.
