Terex ups its bulk handling capability with ProStack launch

Terex has launched a new range of products to, it says, address the needs of the bulk material handling and product stockpiling industries.

The new ProStack range has been designed for key markets and applications including aggregates, mining, recycling, agriculture, ports and terminals, and many other bulk material handling industries, it said.

Steven Aiken, Global Product Line Director of ProStack, says ProStack is a tailored range of mobile bulk handling solutions, which includes feeders, telescopic conveyors and truck unloaders.

“These products have been specifically developed and built for large port and larger-scale bulk handling environments,” he said.

The company sees an opportunity through ProStack to bring value to customers in these industries by providing high-performance equipment that is simple to operate and maintain, automated during operation and requiring minimal setup time, it said.

“High performance is at the heart of the brand and, as new products are developed, the focus will be on moving the most amount of material, cost effectively in the shortest time possible,” the company said.

Aitken added: “We want to provide high capacity, intelligent machines to the bulk handling market.”

ProStack enhances the existing core range of conveyors sold by Terex dealers globally.

“Regardless of the type of job, mobile conveyors can improve safety by reducing traffic levels on site and save customers money by eliminating the double handling of material, coupled with low operating and maintenance costs,” Terex said.

The ProStack launch portfolio consists of a Bulk Reception Feeder Range, the Hornets (pictured), and a Telescopic Conveyor Range, the Telsons, both designed to include a multitude of options that tailor these machines to meet customer demand.

The Bulk Reception Feeders can receive high volume material feeds, delivering uniformed material flow onto secondary material handling systems. The 10-12 feeder has a 1,200 mm wide belt design that can handle up to 1,000 t/h and discharge the material at a maximum height of 3.1 m, according to the company. The larger 15-18 feeder has an 1,800 mm belt and can handle 1,500 t/h discharging at a height of 3.5 m.

The range of radial telescopic conveyors, the Telsons, are available from 42 m up to 58 m in length with capacities up to 1,500 t/h in standard specification. They come in a portable wheeled format and are enhanced with on-board hydraulic systems to allow for quick, efficient site deployment. Advanced PLC automation and radio remote control of the radial, telescopic and luffing movements, meanwhile, allow creation of large precise desegregated stockpiles, loading material carrying vessels, barges and ships or being integrated into existing bulk handling operations, the company said.

ProStack products will be manufactured in existing MP Centers of Excellence in Northern Ireland, with additional support and service from facilities in North America and India, Terex said.

“We look forward to adding more products to the portfolio in 2020 and serving our new customers to a very high standard,” Aiken concluded.
