The radial drive sensor is located on the non-drive side of the wheel to guarantee accuracy.

21-1000.jpg

INOVUS Automation Technology

INOVUS Automation Technology uses various sensors connected to a PLC in order to perform the following automated functions: Pile Detection & Material Flow (Standard) Radial Drive & Telescopic Position (Standard) Cable Slack & Tension Detection (Standard) Belt Tracking (Optional) The most unique function of Thor’s INOVUS Automation Technology is the ability to change parameters “on-the-fly” during automatic mode of any program.

5-1000.jpg

LES: Patented

The patented LES (Load Equalizing System) was engineered to evenly distribute the constantly changing load of the inner truss as it extends and retracts. When extending and retracting a telescopic, the forces applied to the inner structure can be very high. The system uses a unique 4-roller design to effectively distribute this load over the entire inner structure. The LES is located under the inner conveyor to avoid material build up. The combination of the upper and lower LES keeps loads even on all 4 rollers for worry-free operation.

62-1000.jpg

Limit Switches: NEMA 4

NEMA 4 rated back-up safety switches are located in various positions across the stacker. Weatherproof seals ensure that the switches operate reliably under harsh conditions, thereby eliminating potential downtime.

Thor Global’s more forgiving UHMW guidance system does not employ metal on metal contact and covers the entire height of the inner chord prolonging the lifespan of the inner telescopic.

26-1000.jpg

Steel: 60,000 psi

Thor Global uses 60,000 psi yield strength steel versus the industry norm of 45,000 psi yield strength for all HSS (Hollow Structural Section) tubing. This FINER grain steel provides additional strength without additional weight.

8-1000.jpg

Stone Box Skirting (Floating): UHMW

Located between the stone box and the conveyor belt, the UHMW skirting is designed to “float” on the belt via slotted holes, maintaining a constant point of contact, thereby minimizing spillage and wear due to friction.

27-1000.jpg

Tail Pulley Access

An opening located on the counter weight allows safe visual inspection and greasing of the tail pulley bearings during operation.

9-1000.jpg

Tail Pulley Kicker Bar

A kicker bar is attached to the tail pillow block bearings of the inner and outer conveyors to keep material off the pulley, which prevents tracking and belt damage.

Touch Screen Control: HMI08CE

The touch-screen control provides a simple to use and fully automated program for setting parameters and pile configurations. All controls are on the same screen. Cutler-Hammer touch-screens are NEMA 4 rated and very durable, withstanding a shock load of 30Gs. These screens come with standard replaceable overlays, to ensure a clear view.

29-1000.jpg

Touch Screen Sun Visor: Anti Glare

An enclosure around the centric control system removes glare for increased touch-screen visibility.

30-1000.jpg

Training: Onsite

11-1000.jpg

Transport Flip Box

Kingpin, counterweight and side plate assemblies are designed to allow ample turning clearance for most 5th wheel tractors, as well as easier and quicker hook-up from operating to transport positions.

75-1000.jpg

Transport Mobility

All portable conveyors (including the T190 series) are designed to stay within most transportation regulations. The machine can be folded up and ready for transport in under 12 minutes.

33-1000.jpg

Ultrasonic Sensors

Ultrasonic sensors utilize the PLC to automatically maintain a pre-determined drop distance from the head pulley to the stockpile as well as stopping all radial movement when no material is detected on the conveyor belt. These sensors never come in contact with the material and are maintenance free.

34-1000.jpg

Variable Frequency Drive

Variable frequency drive provides smooth acceleration and deceleration of the, eliminating jerky or jarring starts and stops. The VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) also allows the operator to adjust the radial travel speed.

OPTIONAL FEATURES

Chute: Custom

A standard box shaped design has tapered sides with a wider feed opening. Other custom designs are available upon request.

Contactors & Starters: NEMA

NEMA rated starters and contactors are available upon request.

We understand the importance of corporate image, so we at Thor Global will always try to meet the specific requests of our customers as best as we can.

Dual Drive

An optional second radial drive allows the conveyor to maintain traction in the most demanding conditions.

Program Package: Zero Segregation & Max Pile Auto Mode

Zero segregation programming is recommended when minimizing segregation is of the utmost importance. The primary function of zero segregation programming is a stepping function, which prevents material segregation along the outside of the pile in addition to the inside of the pile. The most unique function of Thor’s zero segregation program, is the ability to control the degree of step, which enables you to control the exact size of the pile. Max Pile programming is recommended when segregation is not of any importance. The conveyor minimizes all movements in this auto mode.

Wire Remote Touch Screen: Regular

A wire remote control may be installed for applications with a control tower or station. This involves removing the touch screen panel from the conveyor and reinstalling it up to 1000ft away from the conveyor. Wire remote control provides increased visibility of overall operations.

Wireless Remote Control

This system allows wireless remote control operation of the conveyor for movements such as telescoping in and out, or luffing and slewing. Wireless remote control provides increased visibility and flexibility. Wireless remote control is ideal for ship loading applications where visibility from the main control panel is limited.

SPECIALTY FEATURES

Belt Alignment Sensor

A belt alignment sensor may be applied in connection with the PLC to monitor the belt alignment and alert the operator when an adjustment is required to further extend belt longevity. Also known as belt tracking.

Belt Covers: Patented

Thor Global’s patented belt covers can be easily installed into any existing conveyor system. Ultra lightweight galvanized steel structural tubing and single bolt connections make these conveyor covers easy to handle, remove and assemble. Individual spring tensioning systems keep the covers secure and accessible for maintenance and repair. Lightweight UV resistant polyurethane material dramatically reduces wind load by 80%. Provides excellent dust control.
