NTIS: PB/266-075 Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :18 pages
Lease Afex, Inc. modified its standard design of an automatic fire protection system used on logging equipment, and long-term, in-mine tested the system on a Fiat-Alli's HD-41B dozer at the Lemmons and Company Coal Mine, Boonville, Indiana. The modifications of the standard Afex system involved improving the actuation device. The system is called a point-type thermal sensor, automatic fire protection system. The in-mine test took place in late 1975 and early 1976. The system was then tested by simulating a fire on the dozer. The system operated successfully after 4 months of in-mine endurance testing.
