CONTINUOUS UNDERGROUND COAL HAULAGE BY HYDRAULIC TRANSPORT
Hydraulic transport of coarse coal has replaced conventional mechanical haulage in a West Virginia underground coal mine pilot installation. Increased productivity is expected to result from the continuous nature of the hydraulic transport system, while health, safety, and maintenance problems are reduced.
