Superior Industries announced it has built the first ever 210-foot (64m) road-portable telescoping radial stacking conveyor. This TeleStacker Conveyor was designed for a frac sand operation in Texas.
The conveyor boasts a stockpiling capacity of 400,000 U.S. tons (363,000 MT), pulling 30% more power than any other telescoping conveyor on the market, the firm says. According to Superior, the company’s solution is also less than half the cost of a fixed or stationary tripper conveyor with the same capacity.In addition to high capacity frac sand applications, operations that may benefit from a longer unit include sites that need to build inventory with large tonnage stockpiles and shipload applications.
A 210-foot (64m) telescopic conveyor will fill a vessel hold more completely than shorter models.
Superior Industries engineers and manufactures bulk-material processing and handling equipment as well as machinery components. It supplies bulk crushing, screening, washing and conveying systems for industries including construction aggregates, mining, bulk terminals, agriculture, power and biomass. The firm is based in Morris, Minnesota and serves an international market.
