The article solves the actual problem of determining the value of the critical rate of hydrotransport for a specific hydrotransport unit in terms of its operation in supercritical flow conditions, without violating the process regulations and the required freight traffic for processing. Based on the analysis and generalization of the known methods of calculating the parameters of hydrotransport, a methodical approach was proposed for determining the value of the critical rate of hydrotransportation according to the dependence of the hydraulic slope on the speed and concentration of the slurry. The efficiency of the developed methodology was proved based on the results of measurements of the parameters of the Vilnohirsk State Mining and Metallurgical Plant hydrotransport complex in supercritical conditions. The reliability of the developed technique is confirmed by the fact that the relative error in determining the critical rate of hydrotransport according to the methods improved by the author does not exceed 7 %, and in determining the hydraulic slope does not exceed 6 %, respectively.
