This handbook was prepared to provide a quick refeerence for use by frontline supervisors, ventilation engineers, and mine planners in selecting and using jet fans in a variety of conditions in large underground metal and nonmetal mines. Discussions covering jet fan characteristics, selection and use criteria, and do's and don'ts for easier operation, safety, and performance are included. The handbook is based on research at three underground metal and nonmetal mines with cross-sectional areas of 900 to 2,000 ft2. The handbook also appears in its entirety in OFR 106-84, "testing jet fans in metal/nonmetal mines with large cross-sectional airways."
