When a mine plan calls for a complex stacking configuration, a RAHCO® Mobile Bridge Boom Stacker (MBBS) is an excellent addition to a Mobile Stacking System. Its flexibility and reach allow it to fill small corners or large areas, while maintaining a low ground pressure.
The MBBS is also a great alternative to a radial stacker. Reducing compaction is desirable while advance stacking heap leach material. Unlike a radial stacker, the MBBS head tracks only operate over a small area, in essentially a straight line, and reduce the affect of compaction.
Each MBBS receives ore from a transfer conveyor, portable conveyor, or mobile stacking conveyor, and radially advance stacks the ore. The MBBS consists of a bridge section and a boom section.
- The bridge is the conveyor section of the MBBS that allows material to be loaded from the MSC. This material is then conveyed to the front of the MBBS.
- The boom has a telescoping shuttle to reduce indexing frequency while it stacks material in hard to reach places. This also allows the operator to stack a smoother pile.
The MBBS is self-propelled and travels while operating under load. Both the tail and head sections are supported by dual-track undercarriages. Track travel during normal operation requires both the tail and head tracks to be oriented parallel to the belt travel. Indexing can occur without stopping the flow of ore.
