A series of frictional ignition incidents which occurred at one coalface in the UK prompted a review by British Coal of the rules governing the prevention of ignitions on longwall shearers. The new rules governing ignition prevention required specific spray arrangements to be ...

Record Number: 20543
Last updated on: 1998-07-08
Trials were carried out to determine whether the assumptions made in the original evolution of the dust sampling strategy for drivages, in the early 1970s, were still valid in view of the vast changes in mining techniques and practices to the present day. Underground trials we...

The aims of the project are to provide data from a variety of different drivages on the relationship between the dust concentration measurements taken at the present routine sampling position close to the machine operator [this sampling position was specified when the Coal Dus...

The aims of the project are:- 1) To enhance the dust control efficiency of extraction drums on shearers cutting at high haulage speeds, by: i) fitting a system of hollow cone sprays on the drum loading vanes, to assist in the entrainment of dust into the extraction tubes, a...

The aims of the project will be to more accurately assess the differences that exist between the mineralogy and dust loading of cases of coal workers pneumoconiosis and to correlate these findings with the severity of pathological changes the dust has produced.

Although fitting of extraction drums to about half its shearers has enabled British Coal to keep the dust levels on the majority of faces well below the statutory limits, there are a number of sites that still suffer from excessive dust. Rising face output is obviously one fac...
