Superior Industries’ new conveyor mobility option, Radial Travel Tracks, is designed to work with the company’s TeleStacker conveyor for high-capacity radial stockpiling in situations where maximum flotation and traction is required, and is claimed to be a cost-effective option for gold and copper heap leach operations.
When combined with Superior’s new track-mounted Mobile Pivot Base conveyor mobility option, the company says producers can benefit from higher mobility due to the combination of free-ranging onsite and transfer point mobility as well as radial travel capability—while reducing the need for haul trucks and loaders, and additional labor and material handling. Designed for bolt-on installation, the Radial Travel Tracks option can be retrofitted onto existing conveyors. Consisting of two 24-in. 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. Superior Industries also offers non-powered travel tracks for use on short stackers, jump or grasshopper conveyors. The tracks can be bolted on over the standard tire hub when flotation and traction is needed.
