Monitoring and control of gas contents and airstreams in gassy underground coal mines.
Proceedings of the 23rd International Conference of Safety in Mines Research Institutes, September 11-15, 1989, Washington, DC. Washington, DC: U.S. Bureau of Mines, OFR 27-89, 1989 Sep; :1014-1027
This paper presents the results of research into selection of an optimum system for monitoring gas, fire, and ventilation parameters in the Stara Jama Mine, a brown coal mine of the Zenica Coal Basin in Yugoslavia. It discusses the need to investigate, and logistics of applying automatic controls for gas content and ventilation in coal mines with methane. Remote monitoring of mine air, and ventilation automation systems applied and considered at Stara Jama are presented.
