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.
