Tarmac choose ‘Telestack’ Telescopic Stacker over Tripper Conveyor


Tarmac Ltd., have recently purchased the 2000TPH radial telescopic stacker. The Galvanised TS 2042 is being used in a ship off-loading application to stockpile imported sand on the quayside at Tarmac's Howdon site situated on the north bank of the river Tyne. From here the sand is distributed to various locations throughout the North East of England. The sand, which is dredged from an area known as the Wash Bank in the North Sea, is unloaded from the ship into a radial reception hopper. It is then conveyed along a conveyor system where it is transferred into the TS 2042. The TS 2042 is utilised to stockpile on site the sand delivered from the self-discharging vessels.

The TS 2042 unit was required to handling up to 2,000 tonnes per hour of material as it is anticipated that larger ships will be employed in the future with turnaround time being critical due to the river being tidal. With space on the quayside at a premium the Telestack option offered us an increased stockpile capacity, and a greater speed of material transfer
