Superior targets longer and wider material handling applications with new overland conveyors

Superior Industries is launching a new model of its Zipline® Overland Conveyors, expanding its range of modular products for longer and wider material handling applications.

Zipline conveyors target bulk producers looking for overland conveyors that require little or no pre-engineering for express deliveries and are designed for quick assembly in the field. With the addition of the new EXT Series, Zipline Conveyors are available in lengths up to 762 m and belt widths up to 1,220 mm.

Between the head and tail are a series of 12.2 m intermediate sections designed with 200 mm channel and 610 mm tall support stands. Standard Zipline Conveyor models are equipped with mechanical take-ups for shorter distances, but the new EXT Series includes a gravity take-up tower to accommodate longer-distance overland conveying, the company said.

All of the conveyor components – like the pulleys, idlers and scrapers – are also manufactured in-house.

“This unique advantage means higher quality, faster deliveries and all-inclusive support from Superior Industries,” the company said.

Superior powers up TeleStacker conveyors for remote applications

Superior Industries has introduced a standard new set of TeleStacker® conveyor models with onboard power.

The US-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems said  the self-contained, radial, telescoping conveyors are equipped with a 96 kW Cat 4.4 Tier 4 Final engine, with the most popular applications for the new models being remote quarrying and mining sites where access to permanent electrical power transmission is not practical.

Today, self-contained TeleStacker Conveyors are designed in 36-inch (914 mm) belt widths and fully-extended operating lengths of 110, 130 and 150 ft (34 m, 40 m and 46 m). Superior says its engineering team will collaborate with bulk handlers requiring custom widths and lengths.

Other standard features include XTP swing axles, hydraulic drives for the main and stinger conveyors, Superior brand idlers and pulleys, and an onboard counterweight. Additionally, the manufacturer offers dozens of options to match the TeleStacker Conveyor to its environment, it said.

“Since Superior Industries produced the first highly mobile, road-portable TeleStacker Conveyor in 1997, the company has continually taken telescoping radial stacking technology to next-level effectiveness,” it said. “In countless applications worldwide, TeleStacker Conveyors deliver cost-efficient material handling solutions that boost stockpile volumes and loading capacities, while preventing material segregation and additional material handling, plus eliminating costly loader and haul truck use.”

Superior Industries deepens relationship with Kimball Equipment

Superior Industries, a US-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, has announced an expanded product partnership with its long-term conveyor dealer, Kimball Equipment Company.

The respected dealer, which celebrates 75 years of operation next year, will now sell, service and support Superior’s crushing, screening and washing equipment in addition to the conveying equipment and components lines throughout Utah, Nevada, Arizona and southern Idaho.

“Kimball Equipment is a well-respected company and we’re honoured they’ll represent our growing line of aggregate processing and handling equipment,” Jarrod Felton, President of Superior, said. “Together, we’re both excited to serve customers with the region’s best application advice, robust stocking plans and most efficient customer support.”

The relationship between dealer, Kimball Equipment, and manufacturer, Superior Industries, started in 2004. Since then, the Salt Lake City-based dealer has sold almost 1,500 Superior conveyors and thousands of idlers, pulleys and conveyor accessories, according to Superior.

Kimball Equipment offers an extensive inventory of new and used heavy equipment, parts and supplies, repairs and rebuilds, field service and engineering capabilities.

Superior Industries strengthens SE Asia distribution with KeepMining agreement

Superior Industries has added KeepMining™ to its long list of distribution partners, with the Singapore-based company to represent Superior’s growing line of crushing, screening, washing and conveying equipment in several countries throughout Southeast Asia.

The pact will see KeepMining hold the distributor mantle in countries including India, Indonesia, Japan, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Myanmar, South Korea, Malaysia, Nepal, Cambodia, Laos, Singapore, Bhutan and Brunei.

“Together, the employees of KeepMining have a lot of experience in the Southeast Asian mining and quarrying markets,” Jeff Steiner, Superior’s Territory Manager in the region, said. “They have aggressive plans for supplying and servicing customers and we look forward to growing our businesses together.”

KeepMining already has ties to Caterpillar, Atlas Copco, Liebherr and Yokohama, which equip the company to sell and service earthmovers, dump haul trucks, loaders, scrapers, crushing and screening plants, grinding solutions, washing systems, automation packages, dry bulk storage and handling systems, plus environmental solutions, Superior said.

Superior’s Prime Mine Duty Pulley to be unveiled at CONEXPO

Superior Industries is to debut a new conveyor drum pulley at the upcoming CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 show in Las Vegas, it has confirmed.

One of a dozen new products the company will introduce during the trade show on March 10-14, the Prime™ Mine Duty Pulley is a drum-style conveyor pulley manufactured in diameters from 4 in (10 cm) to 30 in (76 cm) and face widths of 12 in to 78 in.

It is designed and built with a solid steel end disc, which eliminates welding at the hub of the pulley, according to Superior, which said the applications include aggregate and mine duty conveyors using fabric belts that frequently start and stop under full loads.

Alan Schmidgall, a Vice President with Superior, said: “Our Prime Mine Duty Pulley has many of the same design characteristics of Mine Duty 2.0 and Super Duty drum pulleys, but its optimised design yields a lower weight. That means we can offer a more economically friendly option and include many of the features our customers said they require.”

The Prime Mine Duty Pulley is one of four standard, pre-engineered conveyor pulley models available from Superior. Other designs include CEMA, Mine Duty 2.0 and Super Duty. Superior also offers custom-engineered pulleys from its Core Systems® Design team.

Superior looks to capture global market share with AMPCO Minerals tie-up

Superior Industries says it has signed a new partnership with AMPCO Minerals that will lead to the design and manufacture of a complete line of bulk material processing and handling equipment for customers outside of North America.

The investment into the China-based manufacturer of crushing, screening, washing and conveying equipment furthers Superior’s vision of growing a global brand, it said.

Jarrod Felton, President of Superior Industries, said: “Whether it’s application advice, service response or manufacturing efforts, our goal is to be closer to our customers. This partnership allows us to continue improving our results for them.”

Working in a new purpose-built factory in Shanghai, Superior intends to design and manufacture this line of bulk material processing and handling equipment for customers outside of North America.

“This is an investment in a team whose core members each have more than 30 years of experience developing crushing and screening technology for our markets,” Felton said. “They are accomplished professionals that people in our industry know and trust.”

Meanwhile, the Shanghai-based production facility will improve responsiveness, reliability and quality of Superior’s North American supply chain. US and Canada-based plants will have new access to a dependable, high-quality chain of supply partner for select crushing and screening components, the company said.

Superior Industries to debut portable wash plant at CONEXPO

Superior Industries, a US-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, is to showcase a newly configured portable wash plant at the upcoming CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 event, in Las Vegas, USA.

The portable wash plant is one of 12 new products the company will introduce during the trade show on March 10-14, 2020.

Capable of producing as many as five products, the Portable Spirit® Wash Plant carries a 6 x 20 Guardian® Horizontal Screen, plus a sand production module and ultrafines recovery module, according to the company.

As part of the operation, material is fed to a slurry box, which liquifies it to improve the screening and stratification processes, according to Superior. The three-deck horizontal screen washes and sizes three products from a top, middle or bottom deck.

Leftover sand is then processed through one of two Spirits Wash Modules. These modules consist of one or more Helix® Cyclones followed by a dewatering screen.

Superior said: “The first wash module uses a cyclone to size and separate material for a traditional sand product. A dewatering screen ensures it’s instantly saleable off the discharge chute.

“Depending on the deposit, an optional ultra fines recovery module washes out -100 to -400 fines for microfine material, which is saved from being lost to a waste pond.”

Matt Voigt, Manager of Portable Plants at Superior, said: “It’s the first time such a configuration has been created for the portable market in North America.

“We incorporated our low profile dewatering screens and a series of hydraulically-powered components to ensure the plant is road permissible and quick to deploy.”

Applications for the new portable plant include operations with settling ponds, crushed aggregate, sand and gravel, dredging and frac sand.
