Air seeder runs smoother on Vesconite Hilube

Saldanha, South Africa : After six years of testing and 1600ha of field use per season, an agricultural equipment manufacturer, now specifies Vesconite Hilube bushings in all its Argodisc 32 Row Air Seeders. Seed placement and resultant crop yields have shown significant improvement as a result.

Vesconite resolves problem area on John Deere planter

In this case, Vesconite Hilube replaced a brass gauge arm bush requiring ongoing lubrication via a grease nipple on the gauge arm. Performance was greatly improved with Hilube.

Vesconite moulding fitted to planter wear liners

South Africa – Vesconite’s outstanding wear-resistant properties have dramatically improved the working life of seedpot units on these South African built Monosem planters. Prior to switching to Vesconite, the metal surfaces of the seedpots exhibited high wear rates. In many cases the entire seedpot unit had to be replaced. Refurbishing the seedpots with Vesconite liners allows the seedpots to be re-used – a considerable saving all round.

Vesconite Hilube saves costs on rice planter

Argentina – In this field application, a rice planter with parallel linkage shafts had been fitted with traditional brass bushings and lubricated via grease nipples on the linkage arms. These were replaced with Vesconite Hilube. The key performance benefit was Vesconite’s ability to operate in dirty conditions with no external lubrication – translating into a large cost and time saving during planting, as well as reduced wear to both bush and shaft.
