The RazerTail truck unloader with a variable-height discharge conveyor is engineered to transfer material from a haul truck and onto a conveyor or another truck. The Trailblazer portable groundline conveyor is a mobile 500-ft. (152 m), fully-belted and assembled groundline conveyor that is easily towable from site to site.

Superior Industries, a manufacturer of conveyor systems and components, will display its “best & brightest” material handling solutions at ConExpo-Con/AGG 2011 in Booth number S-640. Superior Industries sales and engineering staff will be on hand to discuss features, benefits and applications as attendees view three innovative offerings:

The TeleStacker conveyor with a two-wheel mobile pivot base and radial travel tracks delivers free-ranging conveyor movement for increased onsite or transfer point mobility; or for increased flotation and total mobility on low pressure soils — all while reducing the need for haul trucks and loaders, and additional labor and material handling, or other costly loading and unloading systems. The new two wheel mobile pivot base allows high-capacity radial stockpiling in applications that require transfer point mobility.

During operation, producers have the option to hydraulically lift the wheels off the ground to lower the feed point of the stacker. Consisting of two 24-in. (61 cm) steel tracks on each side of the conveyor, the radial travel tracks attach directly to the FD axle radial fold-down arms, and are easy to remove for road portability. The system is designed to reuse existing planetary drives and is equipped with hydraulic hoses and fitting connections.

The RazerTail truck unloader with a variable-height discharge conveyor is engineered to transfer material from a haul truck and onto a conveyor or another truck — and can be easily relocated to another job site in a matter of hours. Requiring only a short, earthen ramp, the RazerTail truck unloader reduces the labor and costs associated with conventional truck unloaders.

The RazerTail truck unloader delivers a significant cost-per-ton savings by improving cycle times, minimizing loader use, and eliminating any extra handling of material, according to the manufacturer.

Trucks can be brought through the gate, unloaded and on the road again in minutes; and by minimizing or eliminating loader use, operators realize substantial savings in labor, fuel and maintenance. Its variable-height discharge conveyor allows the unloader to reach higher feed points while eliminating the need for a transfer conveyor between the unloader and stacker conveyor.

The Trailblazer portable groundline Conveyor is a mobile 500-ft. (152 m), fully-belted and assembled groundline conveyor that is easily towable from site to site, allowing rapid deployment from the road to working status in just about an hour. Unlike any other groundline conveying system, which would require days or even weeks for setup or teardown, the new Trailblazer portable groundline conveyor is designed to deliver savings in costs and manpower, while also eliminating the downtime associated with the erection of traditional systems — and the need to transport material onsite via costly trucks or loaders, according to the manufacturer.

The system’s numerous applications include aggregate, mining, recycle, waste handling, bulk processing, marine material handling and more.

Headquartered in Morris, Minn., Superior Industries designs and fabricates a full line of portable and stationary conveying equipment including telescoping conveyors, truck unloading systems, feed systems, and design-build conveyor systems; and a complete line of idlers, pulleys and other conveyor components.
