How to choose a underground mine truck and how to maintain it

Nov. 10, 2020

1. How to choose an underground mine truck

Several factors need to be considered when choosing an underground mining  truck, including the type of mineral, transport distance and slope, as well as the vehicle's load capacity, traction and speed. Here are some tips to help you choose the right underground mine truck:
1.1 Determine the type of mineral: Different minerals require different vehicles to transport. For example, some minerals can cause wear and tear on a vehicle's chassis and tires, so materials with higher wear and corrosion resistance need to be selected.
1.2. Consider the transportation distance and slope: The driving distance and slope of the underground mine truck have a great impact on the performance and load capacity of the vehicle. If the transport distance is long or the gradient is steep, you need to choose a vehicle with higher traction and power.
1.1.3. Choose the appropriate load capacity: Choose a vehicle with sufficient load capacity based on the weight of the mineral and transportation needs. Generally speaking, the load capacity of underground mining trucks ranges from 10 tons to 50 tons.
1.4. Consider the traction and speed of the vehicle: The underground mine truck needs to have enough traction to drive the mine truck, and it also needs to complete long-distance transportation in a short time. Therefore, a vehicle with higher traction and speed needs to be selected.
1.5. Consider vehicle reliability and maintenance costs: Underground mine trucks need to have high reliability and durability to avoid failure that affects transportation. At the same time, vehicle maintenance costs need to be considered, including replacement parts and lubricants.
1.6. Consider vehicle safety: Underground mine trucks need to have high safety performance, including braking performance and stability. Braking performance needs to be strong enough to stop quickly in an emergency, while stability control is required to prevent the vehicle from rolling or moving sideways during transportation.
7. Consider environmental requirements: Underground mine trucks need to comply with environmental requirements, including emission standards and noise control. Therefore, these factors need to be considered when selecting a vehicle to avoid adverse effects on the environment and people.
In short, there are many factors to consider when choosing an underground ore truck, including the type of mineral, transportation distance and slope, as well as the vehicle's load, traction and speed.

2. How to maintain underground mining trucks

The maintenance and upkeep of underground mine trucks needs to be carried out according to the following steps:
2.1. Regularly inspect and maintain key vehicle components. For example, key components such as transmission and suspension systems, braking systems, electrical systems and lubrication systems should be regularly inspected to ensure their normal operation.
2.2. Replace worn parts regularly. After long-term use of underground mining trucks, the wear of some parts is inevitable, so these parts need to be regularly inspected and replaced, including tires, wheel bearings, brakes, etc.
2.3. Keep your vehicle clean. Clean the body and chassis regularly to remove dust, mud, oil, etc. to prevent damage to the vehicle.
2.4. Carry out regular vehicle maintenance. This includes replacing engine oil and filter elements, cleaning the air filter, checking hydraulic oil and coolant, etc. to ensure the normal operation of the vehicle.
2.5. Follow operating procedures. When using underground mine trucks, operating procedures must be followed, including speed limits, load limits, and avoidance of overloading, to reduce damage to the vehicle.
2.6. Regularly train and guide operating personnel. Operators need to understand the structure and performance of underground mine trucks, as well as their use and maintenance methods
