Four-mite belt conveyor—the longest in the world—installed in a Pennsylvania mine
for transporting coal from mine a to river barges. Electric motors operate this conveyor.
90,0£P Wheelbarrows in one hand
A button is pressed. An electric motor goes
to work, followed by another and still others
until twenty sections of a belt conveyor
four miles long are in operation!
Through an abandoned mine runs this giant
wheelbarrow carrying nine thousand tons
Of coal per day in a steady stream from the
miners to the coal barges on the Monon-
gahela River. One man controls it with no
more effort or concern than pressing a
switch button. Electricity pushes it.
Not only conveyor belts of all sizes, shapes
and kinds, but also hoists, tractors, cranes,
elevators, stackers, locomotives, and other
material-handling equipment have gained
flexibility, dependability, jand ease of control
through electric motorization.
Moving things in one way or another is the
educated man's work in life. And electricity,'
ever at his command, is moving more and
still more of the things which move this
new-world of ours.
The General Electric (
has devoted years of study to
materialman dling and trans-
portation problems. In its own
vast plants the handling and
moving of materials and prod-
ucts have been simplified to
the highest degree, thus provid-
ing a daily demonstration of
the value of electricity.
