Riser Pipes & Conversion Heads

2.5 inch. If you need taller pipes to improve gravity flow thru the secondaries, or just looking to replace rusted-out pipes or older pipes that lack dimples to redistribute seed & fertilizer more uniformly as it goes up into distribution head. Other sizes available.


All About Smallaire Riser Pipes & Conversion Heads

Smallaire riser pipes have an enlarged elbow to properly disperse product going up to the distribution head (ordinary mandrel bends cause ricochet and overload one side of the head). Dimples also help this. Tremendous durability. Smallaire are the wizards of air flow. Reap the rewards of a uniform amount of product going to each opener. For best results, also get rid of inferior distribution heads, such as the Deere steel-lid heads. Exapta is proud to be the exclusive distributor for Smallaire ag products in North America.
“I didn’t think the [Smallaire distribution] head was going to be anything special, but they ended all of our plugging problems and we backed the fan speed off another 200 RPM. Never had a secondary hose come off, either. We got the [Smallaire] stainless risers from you, and they’re an undervalued product. Great product, and I will buy again [for my other air drill]. Thanks!”
