BITE Lenticular Blades
- Product Code: Blades
- Inc. Tax: £40.80
The BITE system uses a small, perforated lenticular blade that enters the trunk by separating the wood fibres with minimal friction.
Furthermore, the lenticular shaped blade reduces the xylem vessel cross section, increasing sap velocity which consequently lowers the sap pressure - in fluid dynamics, Bernoulli’s principle states that an increase in the speed of a fluid occurs simultaneously with a decrease in pressure. Consequently, the applied sap-compatible liquid is naturally drawn into the tree.
With the BITE lenticular blade, the infusion ports partially close soon after the removal of the blade due to the natural elasticity and turgidity of the plant tissues, and the cambial activity completes the healing process in few weeks.
