Abstract
The objective of the work reported herein was to develop design concepts for extensible bridge conveyors which can be used in multiples to form a continuous haulage system. Consultation services were provided by Jeffrey Mining Machinery Division on mining technology and B.F. Goodrich Engineered Systems Division on conveyor belt technology. Additional information was gathered in a mine visit, during visits to conveyor manufacturers, and contacts with several component suppliers. From a group of 20 machinery arrangement concepts, three extensible conveyor approaches were selected and machinery arrangement and internal detail drawings were prepared for each. Two of the concepts are for a face haulage system in which separate nonconnected extensible conveyors are individually trammed into position to form a continuous haulage system. The third concept is for a connected extensible system similar to existing continuous face haulage systems but employing extensible rather than fixed-length bridges. Cost estimates were prepared for the three concepts. The concepts developed employ belt-type conveyors, however, chain-type conveyors were considered to be a viable alternative.
