W-JET Road Dryer Systems
The first photo above was taken right after a weed test and it did look as if we just washed the grass! But two days later we made the photo below and shows the result after one treatment! The average consume was 62.5 kg fuel, 125 kg water, per hectare.
The 55 kg W-JET M1 jet module can deliver up to 65 m³/min at 700°C when used for road drying. For WEED Control we only need power slightly above idle, then producing 12 m³/min at 500°C, and with the patented WATER INJECTON System, the JET turbine noise is lowered to a minimum, as well as fuel consume is reduced to 9 -15 l/h, water consume is 22 - 30 l/h, and treat capacity is app 4.500 - 5.500 m²/h.

Comparing our system to LPG Gas Weed-control:
Conclusion in the official report LPG Gas Weed-control report "Weed control on roads without pesticides" (ISBN 87-7903-243-5)
Photo to the right shows a test field where there was performed 10 treatments at two-week intervals with dosages from 40 kg gas/ha/treatment in the left box, 80 kg in the middle and 120 kg to right.
There was so 40 kg difference between each stripe, but there was significant differ-rence in the effect between 40 and 80 kg gas/ha than between 80 and 120 kg gas/ha.
It was no additional effect by increasing to 120 kg gas/ha. It was so concluded that the pesticide-free methods require ongoing effort because they only remove weeds here and now, not preventive.
