Telestack produces 2,000tonnes/hour Titan bulk reception feeder
Telestack's new Titan mobile bulk reception feeder, designed and produced for a major aggregates producer
Telestack has designed and produced the Titan T1600-8, what it says is the largest mobile bulk reception feeder in the international market.
The aim of the project was to design and build a bulk reception unit that could handle throughput rates of up to 2,000tonnes/hour and have the ability to receive a payload from a Cat 777 off-highway rigid haul truck for the end user, a significant producer of construction aggregates in North America (primarily crushed stone, sand and gravel).
Telestack used the latest sophisticated modelling software and a team of ports and inland terminal experts for the project. A critical element was the client’s need to tip directly onto a unit for barge loading that would eliminate double handling of material, thus reducing cost, reduce loading time and offer a higher quality of product due to the reduction of material handling time and methods.
The Titan T1600-8 bulk reception feeder is a track-mounted, fully-mobile conveyor weighing 115tonnes. It is 35m long, 8m high and it has a 3m feeder belt.
“This has been an exciting project for Telestack and our Ports and Inland Terminals Department,” says Padraig McDermott, international sales manager with Telestack.
“We were confident in our design and build as we have over ten years’ experience of bulk reception feeders ranging from tracked, wheeled and static versions in a range of applications across the globe. Our client is a multi-national giant and the feedback is excellent with the unit performing above expectations.”
Malachy Gribben, commercial director with Telestack, says: “This is an important reference project for Telestack as it demonstrates clearly the experience behind the Telestack equipment. We have been installing static, wheeled and tracked mobile bulk reception feeders for over a decade now and we have an intricate understanding of the technology.
“We have another large multi-national client who shares our confidence in the design, build and commissioning of the product. Supported every step of the way by the factory and the dealer, our Titan range continues to grow in numbers and features.”
