Trailblazer® Conveyor

Setting up a Trailblazer Conveyor

The Portable Overland Conveyor

Today, dry bulk handlers have a new choice for long distance conveying in short term or portable applications. The Trailblazer Conveyor is a 500-foot-long (152m), fully-assembled overland conveyor in one towable package. Best of all, set up takes just hours!

Historically, applications like these may have relied on a series of jump conveyors to cover the same distance. That means multiple transfer points to maintain, electrical considerations for each conveyor, and lots of belting. It’s maintenance multiplied!

Meanwhile, traditional overland conveyors require cranes for installation, are anchored in concrete, and take weeks to set up. They work best in long-term, stationary applications.

Blazing A Trail

Carver Companies needed a temporary, long distance material handling solution while constructing a new container terminal. Their options were to string together a bunch of jump conveyors or try out the Trailblazer Conveyor.
