Foamstream introduces hybrid at SALTEX

Foamstream introduces hybrid at SALTEX: Weedingtech is proud to present the Foamstream M600H, their first hybrid unit for herbicide-free weed, moss, and algae control.

Featuring a battery-powered generator, the hybrid combines the efficiency of electric power with industry-leading hyper-efficient boilers. Foamstream is an ecologically safe, simple, patented process that works by killing unwanted vegetation using heat delivered by near-boiling water, insulated by a biodegradable foam made from natural plant oils and sugars.

The M600H takes the concept into an extra dimension with the introduction of a battery unit to further reduce noise emissions, making it their quietest machine to date. It delivers a flow rate of 7 litres per minute, which means it is particularly well suited to smaller-scale jobs and harder to reach areas in inner-city and rural environments. Organisations looking to introduce more environmentally friendly alternatives to the use of glyphosate in their weed control operations can combine the benefits of Foamstream application in busy areas with reduced noise at only 55db. This makes it ideal for municipalities, green space contractors, utility companies, educational establishments among others. The M600H is suitable for mounting on a wide range of municipal vehicles, including a large variety of UTVs.

Also on show at Saltex is the Foamstream L12 machine. Operator driven, relying on the operator to run it, it has a rapid start-up time of 30-60 seconds with unlimited trigger time and is very easy to use. Its diesel and petrol dual-fuel source powers its 12 litres per minute flow rate, matching that of the Foamstream M1200 system. The robust design is frame-mounted with four fork-lift points and can be used on a variety of different vehicles. The L12 includes additional functionality for street cleaning and a new rinse-mode feature provides the operator with an option to use the machine with just water and no foam at high or low pressure.

Foamstream is highly efficient which means fewer treatment cycles are required throughout the year, proving it to be more cost-effective, needing less labour. No ongoing operator certification, training or specialist PPE is required. What’s more, the process is safe around people, animals, water, and delicate environments. Foamstream is also multi-functional and while it is used to control vegetation, it can also be used across departments as a cleaning solution for gum removal, power washing, and sanitisation. Foamstream will be found on Stand E072 at Saltex +44 (0) 203 909 0050.

Foamstream helps keep Cornwall streets clean

Foamstream helps keep Cornwall streets clean: Weedingtech’s Foamstream system is helping street and public open spaces cleansing in Cornwall with two Foamstream M1200 systems now being operated in the county.

Foamstream is known to be the most cost-effective and versatile herbicide-free solution for controlling unwanted vegetation and carrying out sanitisation tasks in large green and urban spaces. Its patented low-pressure process combines hot water and biodegradable foam made from natural plant oils and sugars. The active ingredient is the heat from the hot water which the foam insulates to ensure it is maintained and kills or severely damages the unwanted vegetation including weeds, moss and algae.

While primarily founded on weed control, Foamstream is also designed for power washing, general sanitisation and chewing gum removal. It is certified organic by the British Soil Association and approved for killing bacteria. As such, it is highly effective for sanitising surfaces and urban cleaning. Optional lances are used in the process, and the eco-friendly system is safe for use around people, animals and delicate environments.

Use of the Foamstream M1200 system ensures minimum environmental impact on Cornwall’s street and public open space weed control and cleansing. The M1200 combines high performance with low-cost operation and fast treatment speed. Mounted on a pickup, flatbed truck or trailer, it comes with a large water capacity and delivers a high flow rate, making it particularly well suited to treating large open areas in urban and rural environments.

Foamstream from Weedingtech at SALTEX

Foamstream from Weedingtech at SALTEX: Foamstream is the leading herbicide-free alternative used across the world for effective weed, moss and algae control.

This ecologically safe, simple, patented process works by killing unwanted vegetation using heat delivered by near-boiling water, insulated by a biodegradable foam made from natural plant oils and sugars. Organisations looking to reduce or remove their use of glyphosate from their weed control operations are increasingly turning to Foamstream. These typically include municipalities, green space contractors, utility companies and educational establishments seeking the best alternative to herbicides. So how does it work?

Foamstream from Weedingtech at SALTEX

The solution is 99.5% water and 0.5% foam blend. The foam is the key element of the process as this provides an insulating blanket over the plant, holding the heat from the hot water in the desired kill-zone (57˚C and above) for longer than any other alternative thermal method. Foamstream provides effective heat transfer from leaf to root, sufficiently damaging the plant and causing it to die back. In addition, the treatment also sterilises any surrounding seeds and spores. Foamstream has much higher efficacy which means fewer treatment cycles are required throughout the year, proving it to be more cost-effective, needing less labour. No ongoing operator certification, training or specialist PPE is required. What’s more, the process is safe around people, animals, water and delicate environments. It can be used all-year-round and is suitable for use on all surfaces, from soft flower beds and porous historic monuments to hard and artificial surfaces like gravel, playgrounds and sports tracks.

Foamstream is also multi-functional and while can be used to control vegetation it can also be used across departments as a cleaning solution for gum removal, power washing and sanitisation. Foamstream is delivered through one of Weedingtech’s industry-leading machines and at Saltex the Weedingtech team will be pleased to unveil the latest system in its range and talk further on the process benefits, both ecological and financial that can be gained from implementing such systems. Foamstream will be found on Stand F027 at Saltex
