Aggregate Equipment Guide
Superior Industries Inc., a major manufacturer of conveyor systems and their related components, launched a brand new overland conveyor model. Branded the Zipline conveyor, the modular, pre-engineered system permits quick, tool-less installations for bulk material handlers in a variety of industries including construction aggregates, coal mining, biomass handling, industrial minerals and marine terminal applications.
Unlike similar, pre-engineered overland systems, Superior engineers designed the Zipline conveyor to accommodate standard, off-the-shelf conveyor components. Common troughing idlers, for example, are placed into position and secured by hand with supplied brackets, j-bolts and eye nuts. Additionally, the components are easy to promptly source and replace from local distribution.
Stocked in dealer inventory, the cost effective conveyor adapts well to future modifications. Simply source additional intermediate sections and shift the head or tail section of the Zipline conveyor to expand the travel length of the groundline system.
Superior’s Zipline conveyor is available in standard belt widths of 30-in. (75 cm), 36-in. (90 cm) and 42-in. (105 cm) and maximum production rates of 500 to 1,500 tons (450 to 1,360 t) per hour.
