PRESS RELEASE: This TeleStacker conveyor, which was designed and built for a frac sand operation in Texas, US, is reportedly the longest one of its kind ever built.
The 210-foot (64m) conveyor has a stockpiling capacity of 400,000 short tons (363,000t), 30% more than any other telescoping conveyor on the market. According to Superior, the company’s solution is less than half the cost of a fixed or stationary tripper conveyor with the same capacity.
In addition to high capacity frac sand applications, operations that may benefit from a longer unit include sites that need to build inventory with large tonnage stockpiles and shipload applications. A 210ft (64m) telescopic conveyor will fill a vessel hold more completely than shorter models.
