Planters

AVOID REGULAR GREASING AND DOWNTIME

On a planter there are literally hundreds of grease nipples which require regular greasing to maintain performance and reasonable life. Grease does not last and metal to metal wear is ongoing, given the environment of sand, dirt and grit. With Vesconite, these issues are a thing of the past, as the material is self-lubricating and abrasion resistant. Wear rates are consequently lower, reducing downtime and maintenance costs. Removal and fitting is also greatly simplified compared to steel and ball-bearings, which can be prone to seizing.

GAUGE ARM
BUSHES

An application involving oscillating movement, with dust and dirt affecting performance. Wear of these bushes can impact significantly on precise seed placement.

THE VESCONITE SOLUTION

With Vesconite, optimum seed placement is maintained and downtime reduced, as no ongoing lubrication is required. Vesconite performs particularly well where there's oscillating movement.

CLOSING WHEEL
ARM BUSHES

This is another oscillating bearing in planters that is prone to wear and requires constant lubrication to maintain performance and extend life.

THE VESCONITE SOLUTION

As a Fit and Forget solution, Vesconite is ideal for this application. Once again, it performs superbly in the absence of lubrication.

LINKAGE
BUSHES

Worn linkage bushes impact negatively on the end of the row unit, resulting in poor seed placement.

THE VESCONITE SOLUTION

Vesconite's lower wear rate over extended use ensures better seed placement and general end of row unit performance.

Vesconite In Action

Vesconite Hilube on a rice planter
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.
Vesconite resolves common problem area in a 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.
Argodisc air seeder runs smoother on Vesconite Hilube
After six years of testing and 1600ha of field use per season, Landtegniek Agricultural Equipment, (based in Saldana, South Africa) 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 moulding fitted to wear liners of Monosem Planters
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.

OTHER AGRI APPLICATIONS

HARVESTERS

HARVESTERS

Grease-free and dirt- resistant, Vesconite is ideal for a number of rotating and oscillating bushes in harvesters – steering shaft and kingpin bushes among them.

TRAILERS

TRAILERS

Grease-free, high load-bearing and abrasion-resistant, Vesconite is perfect for use on undercarriage pivots and tow hitches, regardless of the harsh terrain.

HARROWS

HARROWS

Low wearing and maintenance-free, Vesconite has been successfully used in this challenging application, where dirt, water and grit make for a harsh wear environment.

SPRAYERS

SPRAYERS

Vesconite can be depended on in those critical sprayer pivot points, articulating arms and steering bushes. Vesconite is not affected by chemicals.

HOPPERS

HOPPERS

Vesconite is a superior alternative to bronze in self-unloading hoppers. Grease and contaminant-free, Vesconite is a perfect material for oscillating bearings.

EARTH MOVERS

EARTH MOVERS

Vesconite is commonly used in earth-moving equipment, where high loads, oscillating movement, and low speeds are involved.
