Potato air seeders have multiple, expensive wear points, including the air valves, fan, fan housing, and planting shoes. Our tungsten carbide RocketCoat and thermoset polymer coatings can help prevent catastrophic fan failures, such as you can see at the lower left.
The set of six air valve bodies on this seeder costs approximately $4500 and lasts one season. The RocketCoat on this valve body shows no wear at the end of the 2005 planting season. UPDATE: End of 2010 season, still no sign of wear!
