Modern Industrial Agriculture includes crop cultivation, water management, fertilization, pest management, harvesting, post-harvest handling, transportation, and packaging. The tools and machinery used in each of these stages make significant use of different rubber materials and products.
Seal Usage in the Agriculture Industry
The many elastomer and rubber materials and products used in the Agricultural Industry have varied requirements, depending on the exact circumstances of use. Common requirements are weather resistance, ability to withstand heat, cold, frost, extremely dry or humid environments, resistance to ozone and UV degradation, and imperviousness to the variety of agrochemicals (chemicals, nutrients, and pesticides) commonly used in the industry.
Rubber parts are used in irrigation products such as pipes, hoses, tubing, drip lines, sprinklers, sprayers, mist emitters, filters, valves, and pumps; in machinery such as tractors, tillers, planters, harvesters, sorters, and packagers; and in construction of specialized environments such as greenhouses and hydroponics.
Each individual process, together with the set of environmental variables relevant to that process, will determine which types of rubber components are best suited for each specific situation.
