New Boot Material Released: Cordura Material

Oliver Manufacturing Co. is always working to continue to lead the industry in processing solutions for our customers through our constant research and development. We are excited to announce that we have updated the boot material for our equipment to an industrial and durable style fabric called Cordura. Cordura fabrics are known for their durability and resistance to abrasions, tears and scuffs. The Cordura material has the flexibility to work in harsh conditions of a processing facility with a polyurethane coat and a water repellent finish. The material that we use to seal our air chamber is a vital piece of the separation quality, which is why we have chosen to enhance our boot material to Cordura and continue to keep the air flow accurate and precise.

Tom Martinez with Hollar Seeds in Rocky Ford, Colorado has had the Cordura material on an Oliver dryer for 2 years and he said, “The material has held up extremely well, there are no tears, and no wear and tear from the heat and air. It has also kept the air flow and heat in the chamber which has the seed coming off the dryer dry. Overall, we like this new material.”

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions regarding the new material.
