THE STADIKO ECOTHERM
How does weed control work with hot water?
Water is heated using a burner in the ÖKOTHERM steam generator to create a mix of hot water and steam at 130°C.
The steam heats the surface so that the discharged hot water reaches the roots in the soil without any heat loss. This process triggers a protein shock in the plants which permanently destroys the plant’s cell walls. The plant is then no longer able to absorb water and consequently dries up. This process must be repeated several times a year, depending on the vegetation and the environment.
The steam is applied via a heat-resistant, double-walled special hose, to which various accessories for area or pinpoint weed control can be connected.
The ÖKOTHERM can be used under virtually any weather conditions. It is specially designed for communal areas in pedestrian zones, graveyards, train platforms and any public areas where weeds need to be combatted. Thanks to its compact design, the ÖKOTHERM is particularly suitable for areas which cannot be accessed by larger devices
