Dry Dust Collector.
Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :121 pages
The objective of this investigation was to design, fabricate, and demonstrate a small, safe, simple, and rugged dry dust collector suitable for face (including machine mounting), belt transfer, and other mining applications. The report traces the development of the dry dust collector from the original design concept and component testing performed during Phase I to the fabrication, laboratory testing, and field evaluation of two mine-worthy dry dust collector prototypes during Phase II. Successful field evaluations took place at a belt transfer point in a trona mine and a bagging station at a silica sand plant. Future modifications suggested by the field evaluations as well as production cost estimates are included in the report.
