Design of New-Type Vertical Dredging Equipment for Coal Bunker
A new-type of dredging equipment for the coal bunker is designed to solve the clogging problem, which avoids the disadvantages of the existing dredging technology used in the collieries. The new dredging method borrows ideas from air cannon dredging technology, and applies dynamic high pressure generation principle. In the process of dredging, the rubber bullet in the launch canister is accelerated by the controlled high pressure air, and impacts the coal in the arch with high speed so as to recover the coal bunker. The dredging mechanism and process are expatiated and the main structures of the dredging equipment are introduced. The structure of the new type dredging equipment for the coal bunker is simple and the equipment is of high adaptability and safety.
