Proc of Longwall USA Conf Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, 1986 Jun; :28 pages
This paper describes the design, manufacture, and testing of a 3,000- to 10,000-psi water-jet-assisted longwall shearer that can be retrofitted to existing standard machines. This shearer is the first of its kind to have a water jet associated with each bit, and it also features a phased water delivery system designed to minimize water usage.
