By definition, the term "flames" in the vocabulary of farmers and horticulturists is a thermal method for controlling weeds. Large-scale flame-retardants, designed as attachments for machines, are used in conventional agriculture. For home use, there are a variety of handy models that are powered by different energy sources.

Everything for the garden: Abflammgerät Video Guide

With the help of flame retardants, weeds can be effectively removed in an environmentally friendly manner without strenuous stooping and with little effort. The devices work on the basis of gas or electric energy. As a rule, flammers are made of lightweight materials, easy to handle and therefore suitable for larger areas for weed control. The working principle is very simple: outgoing heat penetrates below the earth's surface and effectively destroys the cell structure of the plant. In practical application, the flame-retardant device is held in pendulum motion about ten centimeters above the ground. Within a short time, the plants discolour, die and can be disposed of later.

However, scavengers can do much more than just kill weeds. They are to be used as lighters for charcoal or firewood as well as for minor repairs to roofing felt or foils. Here they fulfill the purpose of welding. In winter, outdoors and away from piping systems, surfaces can be easily cleared of ice with the aid of a fire extinguisher to ensure surefootedness.

Flame-off devices based on gas operation can be powered either from a gas cylinder or a gas cartridge. In the case of the gas cylinder, however, a pressure regulator is necessary for reasons of safety at work. In addition, a correspondingly long hose is needed. Tip: The hose should be included to make sure that the connection to the device is compatible. In contrast to the gas bottle, gas cartridges are much more spatially clear and safe to handle even without a pressure regulator. The disadvantage is that higher costs for buying the gas cartridges beat. For both model types, a device with piezo ignition should always be preferred. Igniting with a lighter is too dangerous!

Safety-minded users of flame-retardants resort to the electric-powered alternative. At the push of a button, heat is generated and the effect is similar to that achieved in gas mode. However, in terms of cost, electric-powered models are usually more expensive.

Flaming equipment removes weeds superficially. The root will normally remain intact. This means that the process must be repeated regularly. However, even microorganisms in the soil remain intact. Working with great heat is not without danger. Therefore, it is recommended to wear suitable clothing. Anyone who is undecided about a gas operation, accesses the flammable device with electrical operation. Selected manufacturers have in their model range of all of the above types of Abflammgeräten. The advice of a specialist brings ultimate security in matters of purchasing decision. Tip: Hard-to-reach areas can be reached more easily with a flame-retardant device with an angled pipe.
