Abstract:-
The spillages result from too much feed from the chute, concerning overflow as the material is initially deposited onto the conveyor, or material floating free of the conveyor as it is moved along it, or both, and also the Spillage occurs when fines and water accumulate on the inclined section of the conveyor and gain sufficient volume to form a stationary "teardrop" shape which cannot be transported by the belt up the incline.

Coal Spillage, Conveyors, Belts, Water accumulation, Chute design
