Tuff Tube Liners

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!

For those in the feed, seed and grain processing field, replacing a steel spout means spending anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars, not to mention the hours of time lost waiting on equipment repair.  

The patented Tuff-Tube® Spout Lining system is the answer to both those issues for those in the feed, seed and grain processing industry, plus those in aggregate, mining, fertilizer and frac sand industries.    

Reduce Costly Replacements 

Abrasion is a steel spout’s worst nightmare. Every time a seed or piece of grain hits the inside of a steel spout, it causes damage. After time, that damage leads to a complete spout replacement. The Tuff-Tube® lining system, made from a patented urethane - manufactured by Sioux Rubber & Urethane - significantly reduces that abrasion. The lining system seamlessly fits inside steel spouts from 4- to 20-inches in diameter, creating a barrier between seeds, grains and fertilizer and your expensive piece of equipment. End-of-the-season spout replacements will be a thing of the past.  

Reduce Downtime 

The Tuff-Tube® lining system simply slides into the spout, without the need for elevator bolts to attach it. Instead, it is designed with a top holding ring that sits on top of the spout. There’s no equipment needed. This ring also helps assure no grain, seed or fertilizer coming up the conveyor belt can get under the Tuff-Tube® liner. Peeling, buckling, plugging and just general spout failure will be a thing of the past. Tuff-Tube®, available in lengths of 10 to 20 feet, can also be cut-to-fit in the field. These features mean replacing a Tuff-Tube® liner only takes minutes. See a demonstration here. 

Get More For Your Money 

The Tuff-Tube® lining system lasts longer than painted liners. It can be rotated 120 to 180 degrees, increasing its lifespan. And, if coupled with our lined spout elbows, which have a permanently-bonded liner that matches up to the Tuff-Tube®, you can get total spout protection. Lined spout elbows are available with or without a tapered leading edge. 

Tuff-Tube® spout liners are available for new or existing spouting applications. Completely used liners can be removed and replaced using the same spout. And, we will get you a new liner fast. Once we get you a quote and you place your order, we will let you know when you can expect to have the Tuff-Tube® completed and ready for shipment. Check out our product page or call us at (866) 603-8661.
