The LPH has the ability to treat up to 800 lbs/min. This model comes standard with a 30 Gal Stainless Steel mix tank and 5 Gal Poly tank (both ran from their own peristaltic pumps) for the ability to treat and inoculate your seed with no added cost to the machine. This model has a 6’ rotary coating drum option only & an easy slide-out atomizer.

This small auger treater gives you the ability to treat from one box to the next without the need for added conveyors. This model comes standard with a manual adjustable seed flow gate with the option for Loss-In-Weight to make calibrating that much simpilar. The AT500 has the easy slide-out atomizer chamber but, instead of a drum to fully coat the seed, it uses a 12’ poly cupped flighting auger. This model also has the option for a very simple, manual dual (10 gal) poly tank pump stand which includes 2 peristaltic pumps, controller and mounts directly onto the machine. For the operators looking to be a little more precise with their seed treatment application, you can add dual volumetric flow meters.

There is the stationary option which requires a conveyor to feed the treater but, with enough space to treat directly into a box without the need for an outlet conveyor. The other option has hydraulic legs which allows you to dump a box into the hopper and (using the controls from the automation) raise the treater with the hydraulic legs to set your box underneath to treat into. The U-Batch treater can treat an entire pro-box in just 3-6 minutes. The U-Batch uses a large but gentle auger screw in the hopper to fully coat the seed in place of a drum.
