Superior Industries, a manufacturer of conveyor systems and components, has a new addition to its line of RazerTail truck unloaders. The extra-large capacity addition is available with a 72-in.-wide by 75-ft. and 6-in.- (183 cm by 23 m by 15 cm) long belt. The unit is engineered to transfer up to 1650 STPF of 100 PCF material from a haul truck.
Engineered to handle material up to 8-in. (20 cm)-minus, the new large capacity RazerTail truck unloader features a deeper hopper and an 8-ft. 6-in. (2.6 m) grate with a larger 9 by 9-ft. (2.7 by 2.7 m) grate opening. The unit also features a hydraulically-raised conveyor and optional self-cleaning ramps.
Requiring only 44-in. (118 cm) earthen ramps, the large capacity machine reduces the labor and costs associated with conventional truck unloaders. RazerTail truck unloaders deliver cost-per-ton savings by improving cycle times, minimizing loader use and eliminating any extra handling of material, according to the manufacturer.
Minimizing or eliminating loader use, operators realize substantial savings in labor, fuel and maintenance — while ensuring greater product quality and a safer job site by eliminating the traffic congestion caused by multiple trucks and loaders.
When a RazerTail truck unloader is used in combination with TeleStacker conveyors (an automated telescoping radial stacker), operators realize an even greater payback in product quality control and cost-per-ton savings. TeleStacker conveyors ensure stockpile quality by building a desegregated stockpile and preventing the compaction or contamination typically seen when using trucks or loaders to build stockpiles, according to the manufacturer.
In addition to the new large capacity RazerTail truck unloader, the series also includes a low-profile model with a 72-in. (183 cm) belt and only a 22-in. (56 cm) earth ramp requirement; and a 48-in. (122 cm) belt model with a 32-in. (81 cm) earth ramp requirement. The latter unit also is available in an adjustable height discharge model.
