Flooded-bed Scrubber for Machine-mounted Coal Mine Applications.
NTIS: PB/80-105836 :42 pages
The objective of this research was to monitor operating conditions of four flooded, fibrous-bed filter panels used during normal underground mining operation and to analyze clogging and structural problems. After observing structural and clogging problems and conducting laboratory field tests, a final flooded, fibrous-bed filter design that minimizes clogging and structural problems was recommended to the Bureau of Mines. This report also describes the dust sampling procedures used to determine the dust concentration at the flooded, fibrous-bed scrubber intake duct.
