Abstract: Most modern roadheaders of selective action are equipped with loading devices with gathering-stars, which have a simpler drive design and increased reliability. As a result of the experimental studies carried out at SRSPU (NPI), it was found that under certain conditions, it is possible to transfer large lump material of a pile into a fluidized state, which reduces the energy consumption of material loading. An increase in the number of beams of the gathering-stars reduces the influence of the other parameters of the loader. Analysis of the process of interaction of the gathering-star’s beam with the receiving conveyor’s side edge to avoid jamming of the picking gathering-star by a lump of material with the implementation of high dynamic loads, it is necessary to set the gathering-beams at an angle of at least 60 degrees against rotation.

Keywords: roadheader, loading organ, gathering-star, mathematical model, bulk material fluidization
