800 Series Seed Treatment System
The 800 Series Seed Treatment System is a convenient, economical, and practical solution for your seed treating needs. Its fully automated On-Demand application, easy lift points for maneuverability, and quick disconnect chemical tank combine to create the best applicator on the market today.
The 800 Series Seed Treater operates with a 120-volt power supply using an on-demand chemical pump. A simple turn of the fluid valve agitates the 30-gallon chemical tank for pre-application preparation. When the chemicals have fully mixed, the agitation valve is closed and the treatment valve is opened. The seed flow control slide-gate is opened and treatment begins at approximately 1,000 units per hour. Designed to operate with the RRT incline conveyors, full seed coverage is achieved once it leaves the mixing chamber as the grain travels up the conveyor, leaving no need for additional coverage-aid accessories.
Because the Seed Treater operates as an automated On-Demand system, treatment can occur at the time of customer pick-up, rather than weeks in advance. Seed treatment can be done the instant a customer needs the treated seed eliminating seed wasted by trying to approximate future consumer requests. Further, if the end-user requests no treatment, seed travels through the system without application by simply turning off the application valve.
The treater is also very maneuverable, allowing for repositioning throughout the season and for storage. Equipped with accessible lift points that are mounted low on the machine, the treater can be easily transported with a forklift in, out, and throughout low overhead warehouses. The system is also equipped with dry break, quick disconnect couplers for chemical tank and bulk hopper division. The simple separation method allows for easy overnight and off-season storage.
The electronic control system fully automates chemical application. After the slide gate is opened, a sensor in the bulk hopper activates chemical application until the hopper is empty. The treatment is concluded automatically, eliminating chemical waste and the need of an ever-present operator.
Like all Quality Plus products, the Seed Treatment System is handcrafted in the USA, and backed by a full year manufacturer’s limited warranty, an on-call service department, and an extensive network of dealerships throughout the Midwest.

If you need a more mobile system to treat and convey seed, our Mobile Seed Treatment System would be ideal. The mobile seed treatment system is a combination of equipment enabling treatment on the go. The system shown below uses a Gustafson Seed Treater mounted below the hopper.
The system consists of a purge hopper with extended legs and a 1600 Series conveyor mounted on a 16’ trailer. We have added 48” extension legs to the purge hopper to elevate the hopper for the Gusfatson Treater. There are cross bars for stability and it is bolted to the front of the trailer. The electric control box is attached to one of the legs for ease of operation.
The stationary stand that holds the conveyor is securely attached to the floor of the trailer. The electric winch to raise and lower the conveyor is attached to the leg of the stationary stand for ease of operation.
The hitch on the front of the trailer is a standard ball hitch with safety chains and jack. There is also a jack on each side in the front for stability when not attached to a vehicle.
There is a hitch on the back for towing another conveyor to fill the hopper. A flexible spout can be added to complete the system.
