Engine on Self-Contained TeleStacker Conveyor | Superior Industries

Morris, Minn. – Superior Industries, Inc., a US-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, introduces a standard new set of TeleStacker® Conveyor models with onboard power. These self-contained, radial, telescoping conveyors are equipped with a 96kW Cat 4.4 Tier 4 Final engine. The most popular applications for the new models will be remote quarrying and mining sites, where access to permanent electrical power transmission is not practical.

Today, self-contained TeleStacker Conveyors are designed in 36-inch (914mm) belt widths and fully-extended operating lengths of 110, 130 and 150-feet (34m, 40m and 46m). As always, Superior says its engineering team will collaborate with bulk handlers requiring custom widths and lengths. Other standard features include XTP swing axles, hydraulic drives for the main and stinger conveyors, Superior brand idlers and pulleys, plus an onboard counterweight. Additionally, the manufacturer offers dozens of options to match the TeleStacker Conveyor to its environment.

Since Superior Industries produced the first highly mobile, road-portable TeleStacker Conveyor in 1997, the company has continually taken telescoping radial stacking technology to next-level effectiveness. In countless applications worldwide, TeleStacker Conveyors deliver cost-efficient material handling solutions that boost stockpile volumes and loading capacities, while preventing material segregation and additional material handling, plus eliminating costly loader and haul truck use.

Brand NEW Application-Specific Seals Will Extend Conveyor Idler Life In Unique Operating Conditions

SpinGuard Idler Seals

Morris, Minn. – Superior Industries, Inc., a U.S. based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, will revolutionize the conveyor idler market when it introduces a group of application-specific idlers seals at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020. They’re one of a dozen new products the company will introduce in booth C31389.

“These next-generation SpinGuard® Idler Seals will offer greater protection in applications known to expose bearings to fugitive material prematurely,” says Paul Schmidgall, the chief engineer of Superior’s conveyor components division. “We tested dozens of seal iterations over more than five years of and we think we have some pretty robust options.”

Superior says it now offers four application-specific conveyor idler seals:

  • SpinGuard Wet Seal: Applications experiencing unsatisfactory idler life due to high moisture. Common conditions include wet processing, frequent washdowns and dredging.
  • SpinGuard Dry Seal: Operations that produce dust near crushing or screening equipment.
  • SpinGuard Low Drag Seal: For conveyor owners concerned about horsepower. Eco-friendly idlers designed with low drag seal for overland or long-distance conveying.
  • SpinGuard Titanium™ Seal: For the most extreme conditions including wet and slurry applications.

Each class of seal will be easily recognized by a unique color:

  • Wet Seals are blue
  • Dry are ivory
  • Low Drag are green
  • Titanium Seal is silver

Superior says lead times for these application-specific idler seals can be equal to their day-to-day, industry-leading production response times.

Superior’s New Mine Duty Conveyor Pulley Will Debut at CONEXPO-CON/AGG/2020

Prime Mine Duty Pulley | Superior Industries

Morris, Minn. – Superior Industries, Inc., a U.S. based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, will show a brand new conveyor drum pulley at booth C31389 during CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020. It’s one of a dozen new products the company will introduce during the Las Vegas trade show in March.

Known as the Prime™ Mine Duty Pulley, this drum style conveyor pulley is manufactured in diameters from 4” to 30” and face widths of 12” to 78” (x). It’s designed and built with a solid steel end disc, which eliminates welding at the hub of the pulley. Applications for the new pulley include aggregate and mine duty conveyors using fabric belts, which start and stop under full loads frequently.

“Our Prime Mine Duty Pulley has many of the same design characteristics of Mine Duty 2.0 and Super Duty drum pulleys, but its optimized design yields a lower weight,” says Alan Schmidgall, a vice president with Superior. “That means we can offer a more economically-friendly option and include many of the features our customers said they require.”

The Prime Mine Duty Pulley is one of four standard, pre-engineered conveyor pulley models available from Superior. Other designs include CEMA, Mine Duty 2.0 and Super Duty. Superior offers custom-engineered pulleys from its Core Systems® Design team.
