Preliminary Design and Cost Estimate for Field Worthy Simple Featured Mmrdm Based on a Prototype Beta Attenuation/filter Tape System Developed Under Contract Number H0166097.
NTIS: PB/81-166324 :96 pages
This report presents a design and cost investigation for several alternative versions of a field-worthy mining machine-mounted respirable dust monitor. Three main design variations are light scattering sensing, beta-filter tape sensing, and a combination of the two methods. Eventual instrument production costs as a function of design complexity are tabulated. Cost estimates for the development and field testing of field-worthy prototypes are also presented. A general discussion on the technical aspects of these design alternatives is included following a modular-hierarchical approach of progressive complexity.
