USC Features New Seed Conditioner

USC’s new seed conditioner reduces surface moisture on newly treated seed.
According to the company, this means seed treating facilities using high volume application rates can now provide conditioned seed at a greater level of efficiency to customers. Because freshly treated seed tends to stick, potential problems with bridging and clumping can occur during seed handling, sometimes resulting in seed hangups in tenders and boxes.
Seed retailers sometimes find themselves double dumping treated seed to address these issues which slows down their operations and costs them time and money. USC reports the combination of speed and the gentle use of ambient air makes this conditioner efficient, economical and effective.
By configuring inline with a seed treater, the seed conditioner can handle around 1,800 pounds of soybeans per minute. It comes with variable speed controls for fans and chain belt to control the airflow and how fast the treated seed is conditioned, which allows for tailoring to humidity.
The touch screen control panel enables the operator to create up to 20 recipes for saving different belt speeds, fan speeds and on/off delayed timer settings. The control panel will also integrate with USC treaters through an auxiliary port. Four optional electrical requirements from 230-volt single-phase all the way up to 575-volt 3-phase.
