June 13, 2012, Morris, MN – Superior Industries
revealed its newest conveyor design to the market today. Known as the Geotrek™
Conveyor, the track mounted radial stacker can be directly linked with portable
crushing and screening equipment in applications that require material
Equipped with independent hydraulic cylinders at
both the head and tail ends of the conveyor, the unit can also be used as a
mobile transfer or link conveyor. Other common applications include bulk
material loading to ships, barges and trucks.
For smooth and steady handling during travel,
Superior engineers equipped the unit with proportional track drive controls.
The technology allows for smoother, steadier travel when the tracks are
engaged. Each Geotrek Conveyor also features the company’s patented powerfold
design. During unfolding, the stacker’s hydraulic cylinders retract, protecting
the cylinder rods from damaging dust and debris during operation. The new track
mounted stacker also comes equipped with a remote-control to operate the unit’s
belt and tracks.
To date, Superior has engineered and manufactured a
pair of 42-inch wide by 80-foot long Geotrek Conveyors. The units are
self-contained, each equipped with a 77 HP diesel engine to supply hydraulic
power to the tracks, drive, raise and fold functions. The
units were also assembled with Superior brand idlers, Chevron® wing
pulleys, Exterra® belt cleaners and take-ups.
