The tail of this stacking conveyor mounts to the framework of the HIC [Horizontal Index Conveyor] and radially pivots around this point. The unit’s stinger conveyor telescopes an additional 30 to 70-ft (9.1 – 21.3m). This allows the stacker to pile more tons per move and creates flat top piles, which reduces reliance on dozers to prep the heap for irrigation.
Equipped with a tracked drive, the TeleStacker® Conveyor is mounted to the frame of the HIC [Horizontal Index Conveyor]. The HIC moves itself and the TeleStacker® Conveyor along a cell’s centerline. This fully skirted conveyor is able to accept material feed at any point, which reduces moves and maintains uptime.
In between and perpendicular to both the HIC [Horizontal Index Conveyor] and grasshoppers, this portable conveyor transfers material from the grasshoppers and feeds the HIC.
Often at least 100-ft (30.5m) in length, grasshopper conveyors move in and out of a production pad based on retreat or advance stacking status.
