Flexicoil is sold under the New Holland name. Maybe your local New Holland dealer might be able to source or do a parts search for you. I think you may have a hard time finding parts. They have not been made for many years even though people liked using them.

Unfortunately I don't think parts are available any longer. Send a PM to BrianTee. He uses this treater and was looking into parts and also the possibility of maybe 3D printing parts for it.

Yes you can get the cyclones/ mixing chamber. But I've not been able to find the tops. And I think they are about to discontinue the mixing chambers. They were 45 buck now they have gone to 95 and Only had 11 in inventory. So I have gone to plastic welding them up as and using them as long as possible

My electric drive to the pump quit a few years back so I rigged up a Rawson drive for it. No where as simple as the factor setup was. But I could not get parts for it.



Love the treater works great

He was on the forum yesterday, I’d suspect he’ll see your thread.

Otherwise are you on Twitter? Maybe you can direct message him that way

Oh seeding, such a busy time. What is wrong with your caps? I bet its where the little elbow screws in. Just put a small gear clamp around them and then make a pyramid of silicone to stabilize them. I'll take a pic tomorrow morning and post on twitter.



If you can buy a couple - even for 100 bucks a piece - do so. have a buddy in southern Alberta who doesn't use the mixing chambers at all. He welded 1/4" nipples into the steel primaries and just dumps the liquid straight in the primary lines. Says it works great! An option for sure, way less fan required as well.



The peristaltic pump cover we had 3D printed worked perfectly so that is not an issue either. Still absolutely mind boggling no company has made a treater to replace it.

Have also heard of eliminating cyclones and direct injection into tubes, not sure how coverage is but a lot of the treaters problems are eliminated.

Flexi-Coil had a next gen treater ready to go when CNH took over, my guess is it got buried in legal considerations Flexi-Coil never would have cared about, sometimes being a junior competitor is an advantage.

....

Wait, there are problems with the treater?



Carolinacat, definitely try the direct to primary method. We got a different cart this spring and was canbus VR so had no clutch signal for the treater. Seems the treater is old old school now. Dug thru the wiring in the control box and now control it directly using the section control from AgOpenGPS which also does the seed/fert control. It was around $7 for cart control and treater section control. An arduino and 2 relays.
