Telestack materials handling systems are built to last, combining strength with the highest quality components available. Their success derives from using mobile bulk handling technology to enhance operational efficiency, minimise environmental impact and maximise product flexibility, serviceability and availability.
Recently Telestack installed a TS 624 Tracked Telescopic Conveyor for Fergusson Coal in Scotland, which is being used to stockpile coal from a fixed conveyor system in their loading yard (Fig.). This conveyor is the third TS 624 Tracked Telescopic conveyor purchased by Fergusson Coal. Prior to the purchase of the TS 624, Fergusson Coal used a combination of small conveyors and loading shovels to manage their stockpiles, which was proving to be very inefficient. Other issues suffered the client included, dropping/spillage sized coal from loading shovel, degradation/compaction, downtime to move existing conveyor system, workload of shovel. From the purchase of the third TS 624 Tracked Telescopic conveyor, Fergusson Coal have identified drastic changes in relation to their productivity, quality of material and overall reduced costs. Fergusson Coal has increased productivity and reduced the downtime necessary to manoeuvre into position. The degradation of the material was a major issue for the stockpiling of the coal, the use of the telescopic and luffing (raise up/down) features of this conveyor ensures that the fall height from the product belt to the stockpile can be reduced and is totally flexible. This minimised the degradation of the coal, while still ensuring stockpiling capabilities of 600-900 t/h.
