For the optimisation of dust suppression measures on drum shearer-loaders, when using as efficiently as possible the water volume stream provided, systems are necessary for the flexible distribution of the water volume stream and water pressure over the drum circumference and drum width. The prototype of such a system with a multi-channel turn-construction was developed by the company Eickhoff and was used on the shearer-loader experimentation stand with dust measurement devices. The experiments had to be prematurely terminated, as blockages within the turn-construction led to its total destruction. There is further development work required here.
