Abstract
This paper briefly reviews the history of research on machine parameters for dust reduction in the United Kingdom and the United States over the past 25 years. The most significant variables were found to be cut depth and bit speed. Recent, full-scale research shows dust reduction over 60 pct on drum miners and longwall shearers through parameter control.
