A Study of Underground Mine Heat Sources - 3 Volume Set. Volume 3 - Underground Mine Air-cooling Practices.
NTIS: PB/233-542 Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :73 pages
This report (Contract No. G0122137) summarizes current practices of cooling and dehumidifying mine air. The principal objectives of underground mine air cooling systems are as follows: (1) extract heat and water vapor from mine air and provide for their removal from the mine via water pumped to the surface or discharged mine exhaust air; (2) provide acceptable artificial ambient conditions for efficient working mine development and production areas; and (3) recondition the used air, thus supplementing the limited mine ventilation balance. Current mine air cooling and dehumidifying practices are described.
