The Terra Torch® is an innovative new type of flame weeding equipment that can be used for multiple drip torch applications including: brush clearing,forestry, range, wetlands, wildlife, environmental, roadways, canal & ditch banks, and more.
Companies and Agencies that currently benefit from usingTerra Torch® flame weeding equipment are:Forest and Land Management Agencies, Fire Departments, Department of Defense, Road and Irrigation Districts, Land and Management companies, Farms, Ranches, Environment Hazmat Cleanup and any other agency in need of brush clearing drip torch or similar tools These applications for the wildfire tool may include:

  • Light & ignite existing slash piles effectively in wet or unfavorable conditions, creating wider burn windows for irrigation or brush clearing.
  • Excellent & effective system for burning control burns, fire lines, green vegetation control, brush clearing, noxious weed/tree control, ground clearing, hazardous cleanup, crude oil clean up, structure removal etc.
  • Applications in which a regular drip torch, propane torch, or ignition sphere is not enough
  • Crude oil removal & disposal
  • Hazardous waste disposal
  • Diseased carcass disposal
  • Methane gas ignition & removal
  • Military and Government uses


  • The complete Terra Torch system includes a protective frame, mixing tank system, motor, pump, GelGun, GelHose, transfer/cleanout system, fire extinguisher & 12 volt battery system.
  • Our flame weeding equipment Increases the safety of firing operations by reducing firefighter exposure when using this high power drip torch for brush clearing, fire lines or other applications.
  • Enhance employee/operator safety when using the Terra Torch by allowing ignition to hard to reach areas.
  • Increase productivity & efficiencies of burning operation greatly with the ability of continuous fire ignition.
  • Produces a hotter intense, continuous line of fire over other ignition systems plus reducing smoke management issues.
  • Most effective for burning under a wide variety of fuel conditions & fuel types & weather conditions.
  • Gelled fuel provides a longer residual burning time on the vegetation when clearing brush, weeds or other agricultural products.
  • Gelfire System propel ignited gelled fuel safely & accurately to distances of over 50 ft.

If your existing ground ignition equipment such as drip torches, propane, fuses and ignition spheres are just not getting the job done or your frustrated with the cost and performance of a Heli Torch program then turn to GelFire Systems. Our Terra Torches will complement and enhance all ignition operations as it’s a Game Changer.


Wildfire Prevention
The Terra Torch® is a recognized wildfire tool and an excellent ground ignition system that allows an effective way to manage excessive fuels that build up over time creating extreme fire danger in our Forest and Wildlands.
The Terra Torch® increases burning windows, reduces manpower, outstanding ignition performance combined with an excellent safety record.

Wildland Fires
The Terra Torch® is an excellent backfire ignition device due to its ability to quickly lay down a rapid-fire line. Gives firefighters the option to launch a fire line 40 feet from a road or existing fire line, easily and quickly widening existing fire breaks. The ability to quickly lay down a long fire line with limited manpower and or resources create greater opportunity to create successful backfire operations with the Terra Torch.

Prescribed Burns
Perhaps one of the greatest features of the Terra Torch® is its use for brush clearing and controlled burns. The Terra Torch® greatly enhances a controlled burn performance due to its ability to rapidly ignite the prescribed area with greater power than a drip torch for brush clearing.
It is one the most effective tools in containing and controlling the invasive plant species that are disrupting our lands. Because of different terrains, some invasive species are stubborn to traditional approaches. The performance of Terra Torch® quickly kills and controls most invasive plants that are increasingly gaining a foothold. The extreme heat and the ability to hit a target at a distance allows Terra Torch operators to effectively control the unwanted plant species even in unfavorable weather conditions. This makes our device effective for brush clearing, flame weeding and other prescribed burns.

Environmental Cleanup
The Terra Torch® is an excellent resource for environmental cleanups like: spilled crude oil removal, hazardous waste spills and removal, and structure removal just to name a few. The ability to provide extreme heat into a targeted area creates optimum burn up results while being very cost effective compared to other means of removal or the use of a regular drip torch
