Superior Industries Inc.‘s presence at bauma 2019 is three-times larger than previous editions of the world’s largest trade show.
Inside Hall B2 at stand 107, Superior is showcasing its brand new Alliance Low Water Washer. The one-of-a-kind technology allows crushing operators to wash fines within their crushing circuit. It saves from transporting the fines to a separate wash site, which requires costly trucks and harmful re-handling of the material.
Available for production rates of 90 to 272 mtph (100 to 300 tph), the Alliance Low Water Washer accepts a dry feed from the crushing circuit. An agitator converts the material to a slurry before an integrated dewatering screen removes excess water, leaving as little as 8 percent moisture in the discharged manufactured sand. Superior said existing units have required as little 45 to 90 cu. meters/hour of water (200 to 400 gpm), depending on production rates. That’s significantly less water consumption than a traditional screw or cyclone.
In addition to wet processing equipment, Superior is showcasing a group of conveyor components. Included in this display are:
- Chevron Pulley: Invented at Superior in 2007, this unique V-shaped wing pulley deflects oncoming rocks and other material, which prevents it from trapping between the pulley’s wings. No rocks in your pulleys means longer lasting conveyor belts and pulleys.
- Moxie Roll: Made from a composite blend, this steel alternative idler sheds sticky material to maintain properly tracked conveyor belts. The rolls are 50 percent lighter and at least three times quieter than steel.
- High Performance DT Idler: For improved performance in high capacity applications, the double tube (DT) design features inner and outer tube construction for increased rigidly and better bearing insulation.
- Exterra SFL Dual Belt Cleaner: This one-of-a-kind conveyor belt cleaning solution is a primary and secondary scraper sharing one mounting pole. This allows for quick, uncomplicated installation. Tension is set just once – at installation – and automatically maintained for the life of the blade.
In addition to these products, Superior is showing videos and presentations of all its products including crushing, screening, washing and conveying equipment for bulk processing and handling of materials in quarries, mines, and marine and rail terminals. A dozen product and applications experts will be available throughout the duration of bauma.
