A Look at Radial Stackers
- Published: Friday, 08 February 2013 14:48
Minimizing stockpile segregation and increasing stockpile capacity is key to saving money and tackling the world’s toughest jobs. SuperStackers are essential to building a desegregated stockpile and ensuring product quality, according to Kolberg-Pioneer Inc. (KPI-JCI). In-spec material prevents costly expenses associated with reprocessing materials, saving you what’s most important: time and money. By controlling the extension of the stinger conveyor, radial travel and conveyor incline, layered windrows will be built, minimizing stockpile segregation.
Desegregated stockpiling means suppliers produce more material that matches specification, resulting in no re-blending and less discounting, said Jodi Heirigs, product manager KPI-JCI. The Wizard Touch automation control system is vital to an efficient stockpiling operation and produces a higher quality product. The easy-to-use automation system comes with factory pre-set programming, and provides the versatility of customizing in the field.
KPI-JCI’s progressive engineers know that efficiency and productivity is vital to profitability. The SuperStacker is one of the quickest and easiest telescoping stackers to pack up and move to the next operation. The gullwing axle provides optimal portability, going from road portable to operational in minutes.
“Our SuperStacker is not just high-performing and easy to use, but durable as well,” Heirigs said. “By choosing the SuperStacker, our customers will save significant amounts of time, which in turn saves them money and increases their profitability.”
Allatoona Machinery Co.
In business since 1978, Allatoona Machinery Co. is known throughout the rock and dirt industry as one of the leaders in “high quality, low cost” radial stackers, transfer conveyors and feed hoppers. According to the company, they deliver most conveyors within days of ordering, not weeks, and have the highest satisfaction and approval rating in the industry.
Owner Marianne Gilliam said, “When I inherited this business from my father, Charlie Willingham, in 2008, we’d just gotten into the corn industry, selling grain stackers to companies that were putting corn on the ground. Now that business has taken off, our most important market segment is the aggregate industry. That is where we are the strongest and it’s the segment I am the proudest to be a part of. We sell hundreds of conveyors each year to our rock, dirt customers, cement and ready-mix customers, as well as many frac sand providers.”
