Superior Industries Inc. has manufactured the first-ever 210-ft. (64m) road-portable telescoping radial stacking conveyor. The TeleStacker Conveyor, designed and built for a frac sand operation in Texas, is the longest one of its kind ever built.
The conveyor has a stockpiling capacity of 400,000 U.S. tons (363,000 Mt), 30 percent more than any other telescoping conveyor on the market. According to Superior, the company’s solution is 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-ft. (64m) telescopic conveyor will fill a vessel hold more completely than shorter models.
