BrianTee has to many pm cannot accept anymore.
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.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.
Still absolutely mind boggling no company has made a treater to replace it.

Do you use some kind of nozzle at the injection point? Does each run have it's own pump?I discarded the mixing chambers a couple of drills ago. IMO the treatment coverage by injecting directly into the primaries is at least as good as with using the mixing chambers, maybe even better.
Ah, that clear plastic calibration tube, it was allergic to some of the very chemicals it was supposed to measure!Haven't actually calibrated the unit in years, since the measuring device that was provided with the unit disintegrated with age.
How do blockage monitors like the on board seed treaters? I would think the intelligent ag ones might gum up and the optical ones might not like it either. Don't know.
