Superior Industries Inc. recently completed design and manufacturing work on what it is considering to be the world’s largest telescopic radial stacking conveyor.
The brand-new TeleStacker Conveyor model is a 48-in.-wide by 210-ft.-long telescoping conveyor (1220 mm x 64 m). It’s capable of building 425,000 ton stockpiles (315,000 cu. yd.). Superior said the record-breaking stacker will be used to unload dry bulk ships along the Atlantic Coast in Florida.
Its stockpiling capacity exceeds a TeleStacker Conveyor the company previously supplied to a frac sand operation in Texas.
Operators at the port will take advantage of the TeleStacker Conveyor’s PilePro Automation. This user friendly, Superior designed and supported system automatically controls the stacker’s actions while building partially or fully-desegregated stockpiles. Some popular features include pile volume reporting, maintenance triggers and diagnostics screens.
In 2022, Superior is celebrating 25 years of manufacturing its famous TeleStacker Conveyor. During that time, the conveyor has earned a reputation as the best tool for defeating costly material segregation while bulk stockpiling. Superior said it manufactures about a dozen standard sizes and is always willing to customize every inch of the conveyor for premiere performance in any application.
