The KECKEX Approach

How does KECKEX weed control work?

Our hot vapor generator heats water up to 140 degrees Celsius and produces a mix of 50% vapor and 50% water.

The vapor sterilizes the soil and heats up the surface to prevent the water from cooling down. This again enables the hot water to easily penetrate the soil all the way to the plants’ roots.

A heat-resistant special hose guides the water vapor to the individually selected accessory part that serves to evaporate the unwanted weeds.

This process induces a protein shock in the plant and destroys the plant cell walls. As a result the plant can no longer absorb water and thus withers.

Depending on the respective vegetation and environment, the procedure might have to be repeated. Each treatment clearly weakens even deep-rooted plants until they finally die.
