Abstract
Fire on surface mining equipment is a serious hazard to life and property. The Bureau of Mines, through a program of contract and in- house research, has developed and in-mine demonstrated reasonably priced, reliable automatic fire protection systems to deal with this problem. This report reviews the development and subsequent testing of systems for haulage trucks, front-end loaders, coal augers, dozers, drills, and shovels. A variety of fire sensors, extinguishing agents, and control systems are discussed in the context of mine equipment designs and operating environments.
