Chrysotile Asbestos: Raw Materials for the Construction Industry from Deep Quarries

A bucket belt conveyor with increased traction ability is proposed at the request of Kostanay Minerals JSC. A geometric diagram of the conveyor circuit for the cyclical-flow technology with the transportation of rock mass by steeply inclined conveyors in the contours of the quarry of the first stage of the Dzhetygara chrysotile deposit is given. The calculation of the geometric dimensions of individual sections of the conveyor is performed. The parameters of the transported material, the circuit and the bucket belt conveyor itself have are determined.
