Hydraulic Requirements

Bourgault Seeding System

Recommended Flow Requirements


Hydraulic flow requirements are highest when turning on the headlands. The recommended flow allows the seeding system to be raised and lowered within two headlands. It should be noted that the recommended fan requirements are for the maximum operational speed (RPM) of the fan.

Minimum Flow Requirements

  • Recommended hydraulic flow should provide minimal fan slowdown during headland turns. The openers will take hydraulic flow priority over the fans.
  • If operating at minimum flow requirements, the air seeder fans will drop a minimum of 20% during headland turns. This may require a 3rd headland to allow the openers time to raise and lower.
  • In typical operating conditions one or both fans are operating at less than maximum output levels, which will reduce hydraulic requirements.
Flow Requirements MIN. GPM REC. GPM
10" spacing with MRB® 20 25
10" spacing w/o MRB® 15 22
12" spacing with MRB® 22 25
12" spacing w/o MRB® 13 18

Coupler Requirements

  • A ½" coupler is only rated for flow rates of 12 gpm. As flow increases beyond this value, a large pressure drop is created across the couplers which in turn increases pressure requirements. The durability of the ½" couplers can also be compromised when operating at high flow rates.
  • It is recommended to use ¾" couplers on the tractor and implement, as this will greatly reduce the pressure drops and will increase the flow of oil to the fan or opener cylinders.
  • Some tractors are equipped with more than one hydraulic pump which can be set up to operate independent of each other in a "twin flow" style. This configuration opens up the option of arranging so that the air seeder fans draw off one pump and the PHD drill can draw off of the the second. Configured this way, there is no chance of fan speed drop off due to headland opener cycling.
