Say Goodbye to Seed Bags
Save your back and your body. Use a SeedVac Bulk Seed Conveyor, and you’ll have no more seed bags to haul and handle.

Faster Planting Means Higher Profits
High capacity seed delivery is now a reality with the SeedVac. Deliver up to 400 pounds per minute conveying soybeans—that’s eight bags per minute!

Easy to Handle and Easy to Use
You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the lightweight, easy-to-handle delivery hose and cyclone. At about 7 pounds, virtually any adult can hold the cyclone and fill your planter.

Fill 16 Rows Without Moving
Fill a 16-row planter without moving your gravity wagon or truck. With 25′ of delivery hose, you’re able to reach all seed boxes on a 40′ wide, 16 row planter.

Handier Than a Brush Auger
Don’t bother repositioning a brush auger. SeedVac saves you time—just hold the cyclone over the planter box and fill.

Piping and Assessories

Get your rig ready with SeedVac piping and accessories.

 

Adapters

Seed Vac Adapters

Adapters are required for coupling flexible rubber or flexible metal piping. An exclusive Seedcuff™ version for metal flex provides a smoother transition for gentler material handling.

  • Available with Male or Female Camlock Coupler
  • Available as Stub or Seedcuff only without coupler.

Couplers – Camlock

Seed Vac Camlock

Camlock couplers connect in seconds without separate clamps or bolts. Proper pipe alignment and a good vacuum or pressure seal is assured.

When used with galvanized or stainless steel flex pipe, camlock couplers ensure the correct direction of bulk material flow, improving your vac’s performance and minimizing pipe wear.

Camlock couplers typically are reusable if your flex requires replacement. Reinstall the used camlock couplers on your new flex pipe and you’re set.

Camlock couplers can be used on all makes and models of pneumatic conveyors – just contact us to quote a retrofit!

Couplers – Compression

Use compression couplers to butt-connect straight pipe or stubs. They are commonly used for bin and silo plumbing installations and are available in virtually any diameter. Compression couplers feature a heavy rubber gasket, steel inner sleeve and bolted compression for solid connections

Couplers – Quick for SeedVac

Quick Coupler connectors for SeedVac make it easy to install or remove flexible hoses from the airlock/hopper assembly.

We recommend quick couplers with all SeedVac installations.

 

Nozzles – Straight

The aluminum straight nozzles feature 360 degree handle and an adjustable air door. A male camlock coupler welded on one end is used for quick attachment to flex piping.

Available with a detachable cleanup head with skids or wheels for easier nozzle handling. Also uses detachable Bell end for improved performance.

Nozzles – Removable Cleanup Head and Bell

For cleanup applications use the detachable flat nozzle with wheels.

For better performance, be sure to use a Bell end on your nozzle to increase bulk material uptake.

Piping – Aluminum – Straight

Use heavy-duty aluminum pipe that is lightweight yet strong and lasts. Available with camlock couplers for fast and easy pipe connection.

Piping – Flex – Galvanized Steel with Stainless Steel Liner

Seed Vac Galvanized Steel Piping

Constructed of hot dipped galvanized carbon steel strip and lined with 302 stainless steel, this flex measures .038″ thick. It is designed to withstand the most grueling applications. It features high-temperature packing and an Easyflo™ smooth bore to minimize grain damage and reduce conveying friction. Also yields higher capacities, greater pipe strength and a longer service life.

Piping – Flex – Stainless Steel

Tackle your toughest applications with the most flexible and easy to handle metal flex. Constructed entirely of 302 stainless steel, this flex is contamination and corrosion resistant. More durable than galvanized flex pipe, its high-temperature packing virtually eliminates air leaks and provides optimum performance.

Piping – Flex – Rubber – Standard

Seed Vac Rubber Piping

A compound rubber flex formulated to dissipate static electricity and constructed with a rigid PVC helix. The standard rubber flex is lighter and more flexible, making it best suited for clean-up applications. When durability and service life is of primary concern, the heavy-duty rubber flex is recommended.

Piping – Elbows

Use with compression couplers to butt-connect to straight pipe, another elbow or stubs. Also available with camlock couplers attached.

Elbows are commonly used for bin and silo plumbing installations. All elbows are steel grit blasted, primed, and painted.

Available in 15, 30, 45 ,60 and 90 degree bends.

Q-Bit™ Adapter

If you receive your bulk seed in Q-Bit containers, a SeedVac can make planting even easier with the Q-Bit Adapter option. The Q-Bit Adapter slides into place without tools—you can use multiple Q-Bit containers with different seed varieties for more planting flexibility.
