Ordering Parts for the Picker Unit System
The Picking Unit System
The picking unit system separates cotton from the spindles as they rotate during harvesting. The spindles extract all the cotton lint from the plant bowl while harvesting, working in conjunction with the other system components such as cam tracks, idler gears, and doffers to transfer the cotton to the basket or baling chamber.
Always inspect the picking unit system for any potential damage and plan for replacement before the harvesting season. Maintaining the unit system will save you time and money.
The Picker Spindle
Most cotton harvesters prefer quality picker spindles because they are the most vital cotton picker harvesting component. The picker spindles rotate at high speeds to remove cotton from the bowl. The spindles tend to wear out inevitably with time as contact with the abrasive plant stalks occur, or other foreign matter enters the picking zone.
The damages occur at different heights on the bars. You’ll notice that one-half to two-thirds of the bottom spindles wear out faster than the top. You need to know the condition of the spindles during harvesting season before you begin harvesting.
Moistener pads keep sap and debris from building up on the spindles. You also need to check the adjustment of the moistener pads and the doffers since they should run closely to the spindles to function optimally. Replace all snapped, rusted, and dull spindles to improve their efficiency.
You can also replace doffers, which we supply with the highest quality urethane, clips, screws, moistener pads, bolts, and spacers. You can always purchase the parts at Certi-Pik, USA, at any time. The parts should run efficiently to meet your goals.
The Picking Unit Bars
The picking unit bars keep the spindles separated to maintain their rapid operation while the picker ribs clear the dried twigs, leaves, and other matter picked up with the cotton plants to ensure the cotton remains clean.
Separating the Cotton from the plant material via the rapidly turning spindles is critical because if the materials are left mixed up with cotton, you could get docked at the gin for a dirty crop that will perform a secondary separation process that would be more expensive and time-consuming.
The Picker Ribs
Apart from clearing the unwanted materials, the picker ribs also prevent the moistening systems from clogging up with accumulated debris. The cleaning is crucial because if the harvesting parts become clogged up with twigs, leaves, and cockleburs, it will derail their efficiency and reduce profitability.
Note that damaged, poorly spaced, or loose ribs can contact bars and spindles, leading to a strange breakdown and causing a fire in the row unit. So it would be best if you were keen to replace the ribs and ensure that they do not contact the spindles and bars as they rotate.
Also, inspect the mountings and fasteners at the end of ribs and replace all the damaged fasteners to improve efficiency. Finally, ensure all covers are in good condition which will increase the life of your fasteners.
