To kill a biological as complex and structured such as a plant or weed without the use of chemicals, you need a great deal of heat and that heat must also be safe. Open flame and combustibles are not practical for this reason.
Steam can be heated but cools too quickly. Steam can be hot in the center with a cool perimeter and cannot envelope a target and evenly distribute heat. High Pressure also accompanies steam.
Water may be Super-heated, but traditionally only in a controlled environment as it converts from a liquid to a gas at 100°C (212°F)
Aquacide® is an innovative breakthrough as the proprietary process allows incredible levels of heat to be transferred to the water; for that now Super heated water not to gain significant pressure; and for that water to remain in liquid state at the point of application.
The extreme temperature of the Super heated water immediately destroys the cellular structure of vegetation killing the plant or weed on contact.
The AQUACIDE® process of vegetation control provides a safe and dependable alternative to chemical herbicides used in:
