The issue of a comparative study of fuel consumption and temperature characteristics of gas-diesel BelAZ 75131 mining dump trucks equipped with an on-board cryogenic fuel system and hauling rock mass at the Kuzbass open-pit coal mine is considered in the article. A brief analysis of the efficiency of using liquefied natural gas (LNG) - methane - as a motor fuel for mining dump trucks is carried out. It is noted that the use of LNG fuel for heavy-duty dump trucks is one of the most promising ways to improve the environmental and economic performance during the operation of this type of mining equipment. The technique and instrumental base for conducting research are presented. The relationship between natural ratios of diesel fuel replacement with natural gas and the energy charge of these replacement is studied. The following data are presented: data on the consumption of vaporous (gaseous superheated) natural gas (hereinafter gaseous natural gas) during field operation of gas-diesel BelAZ 75131 mining dump trucks; flow rate of gaseous natural gas in pipelines; consumption of antifreeze at the inlet to the liquefied natural gas evaporator, as well as antifreeze temperature at the inlet and outlet of the evaporator; temperature of gaseous natural gas at the outlet of the reducer after the evaporator; data on the comparison of temperature profiles in the cylinders of CUMMINS KTA 50 internal combustion engine under diesel and gas-diesel operation.
