Superior Industries Inc has completed design and manufacturing work on what it considers 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 (1,220 mm x 64 m) capable of building 425,000 t stockpiles.
Superior says the record-breaking stacker will be used to unload dry bulk ships along the Atlantic Coast in Florida.
Operators at the port will take advantage of the TeleStacker Conveyor’s PilePro™ Automation. This 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, the company said.
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, the company said.
