Modern conveyor transportation and prospects for its use in hydraulic construction

  • I. S. Moiseev

An analysis of the experience in the Soviet Union and in foreign countries with conveyor transportation in the mining industry, as well as with use of conveyors in hydraulic construction shows that the introduction of conveyor transportation in the field of construction of embankment dams in this country, for delivery of earth-rock material from quarries, as well as for carrying raw materials to concentrating plants processing nonmetallic minerals, will make it possible.
  1. 1)

    To reduce substantially the personnel nees.

  2. 2)

    To lower significantly the transportation costs for delivery of earth-rock materials to construction sites and to concentrating plants processing nonmetallic mateirals (rubble, gravel, and sand);

  3. 3)

    To reduce the need for trucks, by replacing them with conveyors;

  4. 4)

    To increase the rate of delivery of earth-rock materials from quarries for dam, construction and, consequently, to reduce the times of completion.

  5. 5)

    To reduce the volume of housing, cultural-welfare, and auxiliary-subsidiary construction in owing to the lower needs for personnel in conveyor transportation;

  6. 6)

    To eliminate the need for constructing a large number of roads with rigid pavements for large-capacity dump trucks;

  7. 7)

    To raise the technical level of the earth-rock work.
