BALTIC, S.D., August 1, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The most advanced combine concave technology from threshing to separating is featured in the new XPR Concave System just in time for harvest. This includes three new threshing concaves and new separation grate from Estes Performance Concaves that offer producers never before seen performance in all crops, from one set of concaves.

The XPR concaves might look like any other concaves but not all concaves are the same, the old saying the devil is in the details has never been more true. All you need is a sharp eye and you will quickly see the performance is actually in the details, every minute detail of this concave system has been engineered for superior threshing and separation in all crops. Unbeatable performance that threshes better, captures grain better and only leaves the competition in the dust. There is no other concave system that compares, it is 100% millimeter-by-millimeter different than any other combine concave on the market. Better bar, better spacing, better cover plates, better separation, all for superior performance.

Many have tried to accomplish what the XPR Concave System can do, but none come close in performance. In the farming community time is money. Harvest and planting is precious to our customers and they can't afford to waste their time struggling with other aftermarket concaves. XPR concaves work in all crops. This is where time equals (=) more money. Not having to change out concaves when going from one crop to the next or corn to hard threshing wheat has been impossible, until now.

The XPR perforated cover plates are the key to making this "unbelievable advantage" now achievable. In comparison to other cover plates, bands, fillers our "perforations" allow grain to be threshed and captured sooner. No need to adjust these bad boys. Most cover plates are solid, as are bands or fillers. Solid covers on a concave can cause one of three things: less area for the smaller grains to escape onto the augers when threshed, over threshing resulting in grain damage or worse, forcing the crop to be thrown over the rotor further resulting in "rotor loss." The XPR covers distribute grain evenly onto the augers and capture grain when it's threshed so no more over-threshing or overloading augers.

Threshing is the cornerstone of harvesting crop, which is why we have "maximized" threshing with the new XPR System. Our notched bar is precisely engineered so that we can bring you 137% more effective threshing surface area than round bar concaves. Maximized threshing means threshing grain sooner and completely without tailings, whitecaps and unthreshed heads. Once grain has been threshed it can be captured, this means less grain damage as grain exits the concave sooner. Superior threshing is great but it's pointless unless you can get the grain out. That is why the XPR Concave System is significantly more open than OEM concaves. This all amounts to eliminating rotor loss, minimizing damage to crop and increased capacity. You are finally able to thresh hard red winter wheat one day and then cut into that high moisture, high yielding corn with ease the next. Oh and did we mention our notched bar was specifically engineered to perform best in corn, beans and wheat? Because it is and it does. Time and time again.

Let's talk rotor loss. Do you know what commonly causes it? Having an overloaded separation section would be the answer. So how do you stop throwing all that grain over the rotor or spitting it out the back? Well, you simply STOP the overloaded separator in its tracks and disrupting the crop mat is key. The XPR's Xtreme Separation Grate is exactly what you need (in addition to unloading more grain in the concave section). The separation grate is comprised of 143 disrupter fingers that fluff and toss your crop as it should be, forcing the release of grain onto the sieve, preventing it from being thrown out the back of your combine. In short, this is our "last line of defense" and nothing beats the XPR grate's ability to separate grain entrapped in the crop mat, putting tens of thousands back in your pocket.

If you're a farmer frustrated with your combine's performance whether it's rotor loss, damaged and cracked grain, slow ground speed, lack of capacity, dirty sample or changing concaves then Estes new XPR Concave System is the answer.
