Superior Industries' Geotrek Conveyor is a track-mounted radial stacker that can be directly linked with portable crushing and screening equipment in applications that require material stockpiling.
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, Superior says. 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-horsepower diesel engines to supply hydraulic power to the tracks, drive, and raise and fold functions. The units were also assembled with Superior brand idlers, Chevron wing pulleys, and Exterra belt cleaners and take-ups.
