Ventilated Cutting Drum for Longwall Dust Control.
Proc Longwall USA Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, 1987 Jun; :174-184
This paper discusses the ventilated drum, equipped with a full complement of conventional low-pressure drum sprays, which is a safe, reliable, and effective device for reducing respirable dust at and downwind of the machine operators and is especially recommended for use where dust levels at the support setter and tailgate locations must be reduced. The only restrictions to its use are cost and drum diameters.
