Phoenix Tines for outstanding performance

The Phoenix Tine is forged in fire through a patented thermo-chemical process this results in tines of outstanding durability and performance.

Since 1998 when the first practical carbide tipped coring tine was introduced the industry has been searching for a tine that would last as long without the typical problems associated with carbide tips the search is now over with the Phoenix Tine.

All Phoenix™ Tines are guaranteed to last as long as comparable carbide tipped coring Tines, but in tests Phoenix™ tines have far surpassed carbide in use-life. Furthermore when compared to non-carbide tipped coring tines one can expect a use-life gain of 300-500%. Carbide tip tines typically wear unevenly to the extent that many companies supplying Carbide Tipped Tines will not cover 'side-wear' or 'timing problems' within their warranty. Phoenix™ Tines do not rust like other tines due to an 'anti-rust' coating.

Technology that ultimately delivers better value for money

The Phoenix™ metal treatment is a fundamental reconstitution of the best available steel alloy. The unique multi-step process creates a much tighter cell structure than the original alloy. Phoenix™ Tines are additionally processed in a vacuum under extreme heat and pressure and this in part results in a new and far more durable metal composition.

During the Phoenix™ treatment almost all of the iron (Fe) is displaced for a new, much harder element. Phoenix™ tines typically have a thinner wall than an equivalent Carbide Tine; our Tines do not need the additional wall thickness others require for increased longevity or in order to create a platform to weld on a Carbide tip.

Benefits that add up

Phoenix tines are resilient and super tough this results in operational benefits that include:

  • Less broken and chipped tips
  • Less time spent searching for lost tips
  • Less side-wear above the tip
  • Reduced 'grow-in' time
