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
