Abstract
Effective control of respirable dust is one of the most serious problems associated with longwall mining in the United States. This report describes the development and laboratory testing of dust collectors for use on double-drum shearers. The systems tested included a high-capacity flooded-bed scrubber and water-powered extraction cowls, extraction drums, and spot scrubbers. The systems were tested using tracer gas in a full-scale model of a longwall shearer face. A detailed description of the test facility, test methods, and system test results is provided.
