Superior Industries Inc., a Morris, Minn.-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, recently completed design and manufacturing work on what the company is considering to be the world’s largest telescopic radial stacking conveyor.
The brand-new TeleStacker Conveyor model is a 48-inch-wide by 210-foot-long telescoping conveyor. It’s capable of building 425,000-ton stockpiles (315,000 cubic yards). 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.
In 2022, Superior is celebrating 25 years of manufacturing its TeleStacker Conveyor. During that time, the conveyor has earned a reputation as the best tool for defeating costly material segregation while bulk stockpiling. Superior manufactures about a dozen standard sizes and says it is always willing to customize every inch of the conveyor for top performance in any application.
Superior Industries manufactures and supplies bulk crushing, screening, washing and conveying systems plus all related parts and services for industries like aggregates and mining. In addition to its home plant in Morris, Superior operates from three additional U.S. facilities, plus international factories in Canada, Brazil and China.
