Company has 10 mixer truck-mounted conveyor models tailored to markets throughout North America. Each is equipped with small hand-held remote controls for variable belt speed, 0-9 ft./second, and 85-yd./hour discharge rate.

The Theam Standard series include the 42Steel, 42S/SL, 42Aluminum and 42 Ontario. All have 42-ft. horizontal and 25-ft. vertical reach, plus 320-degree operating rotation, but different configurations, material and belt support systems. Their three boom sections feather to increase placing range.

The Theam Telescopic Series, TLS and TLD, have a (S) single or (D) double telescoping section(s) to increase pouring range from any one point with their respective in or out ranges, 35 to 52 ft. and 35 to 60 ft. Outriggers stabilize a longer horizontal reach: 52 feet for the TLS, 60 feet for the TLD. The TLS is available in a detachable version, while a PreCaster model is built for mix delivery in manufactured-concrete operations. Rounding out the Theam offerings is the Crossveyor 30/42, equipped with a telescoping section but running as a freestanding unit.

Company cites truck-mounted conveyors’ popularity due to mix placing economy and versatility for performing in remote locations and sites with limited working space. In addition to rear discharge trucks, the conveyors also suit front discharge mixers, and can be deployed in conjunction with pumps to keep big pours on schedule.
