Minnesota manufacturer claims the world’s largest telescopic stacking conveyor
By Jenny LescohierApril 27, 2022
Superior Industries Inc. recently completed design and manufacturing work on what it says is the world’s largest telescopic radial stacking conveyor.
The new TeleStacker Conveyor is a 48-inch-wide by 210-foot-long telescoping conveyor, capable of building 425,000-ton stockpiles.
Superior, a Minnesota-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, 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. Designed to be user-friendly, the new system automatically controls the stacker’s actions while building partially or fully desegregated stockpiles.
Features include pile volume reporting, maintenance triggers and diagnostics screens.
In 2022, Superior is celebrating 25 years of manufacturing the TeleStacker Conveyor. The company says it manufactures about a dozen standard sizes and is always willing to customize its conveyor for premiere performance in any application.
