Quit wasting time and money on steel spout replacements. Protect your investment and reduce downtime with Tuff-Tube® Spout Lining from Sioux Rubber & Urethane. Replace your liner, not your entire steel spout!
Steel may be one of the strongest metals used in heavy duty equipment, but it can only take so much impact, abrasion, and corrosion before it fails. And that’s why we created our bolted liner product line, arguably one of the most heavy-duty lining systems on the market today.
There are many unpredictable elements to working in the seed and grain processing industry. Hail can decimate entire fields. Droughts can dry up yields. Failed equipment can eat into whatever profit margins there are left. While weather, weeds, and pests are often (if not always) out of our control, there are some factors against which we can predictably guard, and equipment wear and tear is one of them.
Sales Managers Derek DeGroot and Jordan Langley headed down to sunny Orlando, Florida last month to Sioux Rubber & Urethane’s first foray into the SuperCorr Expo, the largest gathering of vendors and corrugated solution seekers in the Western Hemisphere. They joined more than 300 industry suppliers and thousands of industry leaders from 70 countries for a four-day event spearheaded by the corrugated industry’s two leading associations, TAPPI and AICC.

Introducing the Tuff-Tube®- Urethane Spout Liner
In the agriculture industry abrasion is one of the biggest enemies in spouting applications. The constant flow of grain, seed and fertilizer handling can significantly wear on your spouting causing downtime and loss of production. In many instances grain can get in-between the liner and spout causing buckling, plugging and peeling issues. In a season or less the constant abrasion will ruin your spouts.
Sioux Rubber & Urethane has developed and patented a urethane lining system called the Tuff-Tube®. The Tuff-Tube® can significantly reduce the abrasion and wear on your urethane spouting applications. It is your answer to high maintenance costs and the constant replacement of steel spout.
So you might be thinking what makes the Tuff-Tube so different from the competitors?
Both rubber and urethane are excellent products with a wide variety of uses in today’s industrial world. Some of which overlap and many that don’t. The three main areas of emphasis for these products are abrasion, impact and corrosion. Once you narrow down what type of issue you are trying to combat and what is causing it you can much more easily select a product to best suit your needs.
