Abstract
This report presents the work performed and results obtained in a 2- year development of a mobile inert gas generator for use in the Bureau of Mines remote sealing system for fighting underground coal mine fires. The performance requirements of an inert gas generating system for the remote sealing system were clearly established. A review of seven possible system designs meeting these requirements was conducted. An air-cooled, distillate oil-fired combustion inert gas generator was selected for further detailed design, hardware fabrication, and performance testing. The inert gas generator was tested and has been operated in the field for approximately 200 hours and the system has met or exceeded all important performance requirements.
