Perhaps the greatest classical paper on mine ventilation was one entitled 'On the theory of the ventilation of mines', presented by John Job Atkinson to the North of England Institute of Mining Engineers in December, Atkinson was a mining agent—an intermediary between manage-ment and the mine owners.

Summary: Advanced Mine Ventilation presents the reader with a unique book providing the theory and applications for designing mine ventilation with computers, controlling respirable coal dust and diesel particulate matter, combustible gas control and, mine fire management. Flow-through ventilation is the main ventilation circuit for the mine.

Air enters the mine from surface via a shaft, ventilation raise or adit. The air is distributed through the mine via internal ventilation raises and ramps, and flows are controlled by regulators and permanently mounted ventilation fans.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Weeks, Walter Scott, Ventilation of mines. New York [etc.]: McGraw-Hill book company, inc., Split-Mine Ventilation Of the three ventilation methods, split-mine ventilation is the simplest in terms of layout and design, as the mine is split into separate intake and exhaust sides.

Split-mine ventilation is a mine-wide ventilation method designed to deliver the bulk of the main mine. ventilation for the evacuation of the mine. Before mine fans became mandatory, a large number of small mines relied exclusively on natural ventilation for their air circulation.

The natural ventilation, however, fluctuates in wide ranges even for the same mine (Penman, ; Biswas, ); it. Advanced Mine Ventilation presents the reader with a unique book providing the theory and applications for designing mine ventilation with computers, controlling respirable coal dust and diesel particulate matter, combustible gas control and, mine fire management.

The book summarizes the latest knowledge created in the past 40 years in these areas. In The Mine Ventilation Society of South Africa was formed. A number of professionals recognised the need for a forum to discuss ventilation problems.

new technologies. new. Mine ventilation demands change significantly over the life of the mine. A mine ventilation system can be expanded over the life of the mine by adding air supply and exhaust capacity by means of additional shafts, drifts, and fans.

Conversely, mined-out areas should be sealed as soon as they no longer require ventilation. Ventilation is a basic component of underground mine. With the development of the mine, electric power cost will be significantly increased in.

The Black Eagle and United American Mines located in the Oatman district of Arizona met the challenges of inadequate ventilation, including temperatures exceeding degrees F. The current high production at block cave mines use significant numbers of diesel equipment.

This equipment demands high ventilation rates of air to dilute these contaminants from the contribution. This book on mine ventilation covers psychometrics, airflow through roadways and ducts, natural ventilation, fans, instruments, ventilation surveys, auxiliary ventilation, air quality, and planning and economics.

Natural ventilation of the mines and mining conditions are Author: G. McElroy. The use of the book as an aid to teaching and learning can be moulded to suit any given curriculum.

For the full education of a subsurface ventilation engineer, chapters 1 to 10 may be employed during a course on ventilation, i.e. airflow processes, leaving the chapters on gases, heat, dust, and fires and explosions for further courses.

This revised edition presents an engineering design approach to ventilation and air conditioning as part of the comprehensive environmental control of the mine atmosphere.

It provides an in-depth look, for practitioners who design and operate mines, into the health and safety aspects of environmental conditions in the underground workplace.

that were either part of the original artifact, or were introduced by the scanning process. NIOSH has conducted research to improve the ventilation of large-opening mines.

Large-opening mine ventilation is unique for the following reasons: (1) it is challenging to keep airflow velocities high enough to effectively remove or dilute airborne contaminants, (2) large air volumes can be moved through the mines with little static pressure drop, and (3) stoppings to direct ventilation.

Inadequate ventilation in an underground mine can lead to a buildup of naturally occurring methane gas, which becomes explosive if there is enough of it in the air.

Coal dust kicked into the air by.James R. Robinson (–) was an industrialist, inventor, and author of a seminal book on mine ventilation (). The book documents his invention of a new device for ventilating mines and preventing the buildup of explosive methane gases underground, thereby dramatically improving mine safety.

He founded the Robinson Ventilating Company, forerunner of today’s Robinson Industries.Technical paper issued by the Bureau of Mines over the ventilation of copper mines in Michigan. Natural ventilation of the mines and mining conditions are .
