Abstract
Research was conducted to develop an improved drum or shaft seal for wet-head continuous mining machines with a useful service life comparable with normal machine intervals. Only one shaft seal survived the initial test, and a search was made for other candidate seals including new seals. One new type of seal was found that operated satisfactorily enough, as both a shaft and drum seal, to be recommended for use in prototype wet-head machines.
