Developed by innovative Norwegian-based company with more than 35 years’ in the green and agriculture sector, Heatweed™ is the most effective, non-chemical weed control method available, using non-chemical, superheated natural water, heated at 99° Celsius, to manage and eliminate invasive species.
Acacia is proud to use the Heatweed™ Non-Chemical equipment to provide weed control services across Victoria. Please note, we do not sell the equipment.
At 99° Celsius, superheated water obliterates a plant’s cell structure, promoting a systemic effect of the roots. After each treatment, the plants grow weaker, until eradicated permanently. An average of three or four treatments a year will suffice.
Using hot water to rid weeds is not a new invention. The first patent was taken out in the 1880s, but the method could not be used on a large scale owing to the inadequacies of the technology. Not anymore!
Heatweed™ uses 100% natural water - the most effective conduit of heat - to distort a plant’s cell structure. Compared to other thermal methods such as steam where the potential for heat transfer is low, hot water offers better control, accuracy and a lower water consumption. Acacia is one of only two companies in Australia to offer this award-wining service to safely and gently manage weeds.
Corporate and Socially Responsible method
100% natural water offers a new way
to perform environmentally & socially
responsible weed control.
More Effective than Steam
Large droplet sizes move at low
velocity, with a prolonged duration of
contact and energy transfer potential.
Highly efficient pm2 cost
Active Temperature Regulation
Consistent, great results on weeds
Low Noise Level
Never above 85 dB
Low Fuel Consumption
Lowest C02 emission class
Used in All Weather
Rain hail or shine
High Safety with No Fire Risks
Can be used in all season and on all surfaces
Can Recycle Water
Meaning low water consumption
New evidence supports every virus must be exposed to 99°C at a minimum of 0.5 seconds to be considered deactivated, including COVID-19.
Heatweed’s™ award-winning, patented technology exposes viruses and bacteria to natural water, super-heated to 99°C, completely sanitising high-risk surfaces such as trolleys, bus stops, park benches, bicycle parking, play equipment and more.
And unlike the steam application which has a much lower energy transfer, requires temperatures of 160°C and needs special application tools to keep the steam in place for sufficient time, Heatweed™ is fast, effective, safe and guaranteed to sanitise against pathogens and viruses such as COVID-19.
Kills bacteria, viruses and
germs, including COVID-19
Set on cleaning function, the machine can be used as a hot water high-pressure washer, removing dirt, algae and scum easily.
Nonchemical, and gentle on the environment
Perfect for common, high-risk surfaces such as play equipment, supermarket trolley’s, handrails and park benches
No damage to surfaces, street furniture or private property.
The globally patented Sensor Technology makes the Heatweed™ Sensor 2.0 the most cost-effective non-chemical weed control system available.
The advanced technology secures lowest possible water consumption - plus equally low fuel usage and exhaust emissions.
We can document that the Sensor 2.0 offers the cheapest way of controlling weeds (per m2 of treated area) compared to similar methods. Acacia is happy to provide key figures and calculations for our Heatweed™ service on a site by site basis.
Acacia use the Heatweed™ Non-Chemical equipment to provide weed control services. We do not sell the equipment.

The MiD 3.0 is a sustainable and cost-effective multi-purpose cleaning and weed control solution, maximising the effect of super-heated water. Mounted on a 4-wheel-drive ute with a 45 metre hose, the MiD 3.0 is ideal for treating medium-sized areas with limited access, delivering a high-precision operation.
With state-of-the-art technology, optimised flow and the Heatweed Active Temperature Regulation (ATR), our unit emits less exhaust, uses less water and fuel.
Set on cleaning function, the machine can be used as a hot water high-pressure washer, removing dirt and algae easily without the use of chemical.
Acacia use the Heatweed Non-Chemical equipment to provide weed control services. We do not sell the equipment.
