Hassle-Free Grain Aeration

Springfield Plastics, Inc. TufCore Dual-Wall Aeration Pipe is the choice for plastic grain aeration because it’s easy to install new or add to a current system and doesn’t require socks or screens.

TufCore pipe has a smooth inner wall for maximum airflow and a tough corrugated outer wall that makes it strong enough to withstand the weight of grain. Springfield Plastics’ unique perforation method creates a uniform and efficient airflow that can dry corn, soybeans, potatoes, and other large grains in temporary storage bins.

  • User-friendly product, easy installation
  • No fabrics or screens/socks to install, replace, or attract rodents
  • Rust and corrosion resistant
  • Lightweight and easy to handle
  • Available in 20’ lengths

Use with New or Existing System

Building a new temporary flat storage or ground pile or upgrading/repairing an existing one? Springfield Plastics has all the fittings that may need replaced—couplers, end caps, tees, fan adapters—and they’ll work with your current system.

Our TufCore Aeration Pipe has been used successfully for decades, and in most cases, the pipe outlasts the storage unit!

TufCore Aeration Pipe Technical Data

Application

This product has been engineered specifically for the grain storage industry. Springfield Plastics TufCore Aeration Polyethylene Pipe combines a corrugated outer wall for exceptional strength and a smooth inner wall for outstanding airflow characteristics. Because the pipe is plastic and made from 100% virgin resin, there is no risk of rusting or corrosion. Thanks to 100% virgin resin, TufCore Aeration Pipe will withstand the weight of grain better than any product made with recycled materials. The standard design permits it to be used for corn, soybeans, potatoes, and other large produce and grains. Other hole configurations may be available upon special request. Aeration dual-wall pipe is the viable alternative to traditional materials used for aeration ducts.

User Friendly

Springfield Plastics TufCore Aeration Dual-Wall Pipe is a very user-friendly product. The unique design of the holes eliminates the need for fabrics or screens. The material is very tough, and when repairs are necessary, they can be made very quickly with no special tools required.
