KECKEX in Vorarlberg - Weed control free from chemicals, for the sake of a clean environment!
KECKEX epitomizes the development of “chemical-free” weed control equipment relying on a hot steam mix in the sectors of communal and private services, agriculture, horticulture and orcharding.
Our Keckex Hot Steam System wipes out weed in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way without the need to resort to chemical products.
KECKEX has developed an effective Hot Steam System for enduring and careful weed control: sustainable weed control free from chemical products. Our Keckex Hot Steam System allows treating the environment with care!
How does Keckex Weed Control work?
Our Hot Steam Generator heats water until it hits a temperature of up to 140 degrees, producing a mix of 50% of steam and 50% of liquid water.
The hot steam sterilizes the ground beneath and warms up the surface so that the water does not cool down before it can reach roots in the soil at a continuously high temperature.
The hot steam is piped through a special heat-resistant hose towards individually selected equipment, by means of which disturbing weed is vaporized.
This process triggers a protein shock within the plant and thus destroys the plant’s cell wall. Subsequently, the plant cannot absorb water anymore and as a result withers.
Depending on the specific kind of vegetation and various environmental influences several repetitions of the operations may be necessary.
Our KECKEX System can be used in all weather conditions and is especially suitable for communal service large-scale weed control.
The KECKEX product line includes hand-held equipment as well as mountable units that are compatible with any communal vehicle disposing of front hydraulics, which we are able to adapt as individually required.
The area output of hand-held equipment amounts to approximately 200 sqm/h as compared to about 600 sqm/h and more for mountable units. KECKEX works on all kinds of ground such as asphalt, curbs, roadsides, concrete or gravel without causing any damage and in this way annihilates even persistent forms of grass, neophytes and weeds such as dandelion, sorrel and many more.
