Morris, MN – Superior Industries, Inc., a major U.S. manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, has developed new technology which speeds one of the most time-consuming steps in portable plant installation. Known as Level Assist, the new option automatically levels a plant once the machinery is raised to a desired height.
Historically, owners and operators tediously adjusted cribbing and jacks until a level plant was achieved. When operating in an uneven environment, it’s common for plants to create out of spec material, overstress bearings and gears, reduce production rates and increase vibration and parts’ wear.
This new feature, says Superior engineers, greatly speeds the process. Once the plant is in its operating location, the operator hydraulically lifts the machinery to a desired height then engages the Level Assist by switching the control panel from manual to auto mode. The new technology reduces labor force required for setup from two or more to one, resulting in thousands of dollars in savings if a plant is relocated or when simple readjusting is required.
Superior’s new Level Assist technology is an available option for new or can be retrofitted to existing portable crushing, screening and washing plants.
