A major part of any large-scale stockyard operation is the stacker that deposits the bulk materials in the pre-set patterns and systems. Stackers are designed in a wide variety of configurations depending upon the required throughput, extent of mobility, ability to raise and lower the stacking belt, with single or twin booms, with semi or fully-automatic control and with many other features depending on their application. Rail-mounted, fully-automatic stackers, for example, are ideal for building up stockpiles for blending beds.
