This paper details the collection of diesel exhaust particulate from the instrumented wagner st5a load-haul-dump vehicle during a simulated ore loading and hauling operation. An evaluation of the exhaust included measurements to determine the effect of the corning diesel particulate filter (dpf) on air quality, and the effect of operating variables and fuel additives on dpf regeneration. The results demonstrate the important effects of other mine particulate sources on the particulate collection efficiency. The effect of the diesel fuel sulfur content on potential reductions in ventilation air flow that can be realized as a result of the dpf airborne pollutant concentration reductions is also discussed.
