Challenges in underground environment In coal mines, the major emission is of methane. The methane released during and after mining operations is called Coal mine methane (CMM). In recent years, there have been many 83 International Journal of Engineering Research & Technology (IJERT) Vol. 2 Issue 5, May - Cited by: 1.

      This level served two purposes, it drained the coal workings and provided a means of transporting coal out of the mines. The Worsley Navigable Levels developed into an extensive system of underground canals branching from the original level. The mine workings were also accessed by several shafts sunk along the main drainage level providing access for colliers and materials. COAL MINING METHODS Underground coal mining methods are classified according to the method of ground control (an excellent description of all methods is provided in Samuel M. Cassidy, Ed., Elements of Practical Coal Mining, New York: American Institute of Mining Engineers, ) as either room and pillar or longwall (shortwall is considered a.

This book is not only of value to ground engineering specialists on coal mines, but will be of equal value to coal mine planning personnel, coal mine managers, and mining authorities.” (Horst Wagner, The Journal of the Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, November, )Cited by:   Underground coal mine power systems: proceedings, Bureau of Mines Technology Transfer Seminar, Pittsburgh, Pa., Septem by Bureau of Mines Technology Transfer Seminar ( Pittsburgh, Pa.); United States.

Bureau of MinesPages: This Bureau of Mines publication presents an overview of mine electrical power systems research currently being conducted by the Bureau.

The papers, given at a technology transfer seminar, emphasize the increasing importance of research related to the safety considerations of underground coal mine electrical systems. The explosion-proof drives are a must for underground coal mines. They characterize equal load sharing between motors, adjustable speed subject to the load, high system efficiency at any speed and load, dynamic torque at starting and stopping and have diagnostic feature with drive tools.

Abstract: Various innovations and changes have occurred to underground coal mine power systems during the past ten years. Some of these are the use of higher utilization and distribution voltages and associated switchgear, the use of programmable logic controllers for control, monitoring and diagnostic applications, improved protective relaying with built-in test circuitry, power-factor.

MINE SERVICES. Electric Power. The majority of Australian coal mines have power supplied by another entity to a surface substation on site. Power is fed through switchgear to main feeder(s) to required locations around the surface and to underground, at most modern mines at 11kV (even higher at new mines).

Ref 2: A study by Madlener and Specht entitled An Exploratory Economic Analysis of Underground Pumped-Storage Hydro Power Plants in Abandoned Coal Mines. A third source of data is a study by Bracke and Bussman entitled Heat-Storage in Deep Hard Coal Mining Infrastructures.

This study, however, deals with using the mine for heat. Longwall mining- is a form of underground coal mining where a long wall of coal is mined in a single slice ; Continuous mining-(also called bord and pillar) is a mining system in which the mined material is extracted across a horizontal plane while leaving "pillars" of untouched material to support the overburden leaving open areas or "rooms".

Mine Power Systems offers every kind of battery a customer could need at a mine site, ranging from 6-volt golf cart and scrubber batteries to 30,pound coal hauler batteries.

Coal Haulage | Introduction | underground COAL. coal haulage. general. It has been noted previously that, with the exception of a few special cases using hydraulic transport, coal haulage outside the face area in modern mines is almost exclusively by conveyor belt, combined in some mines with bulk winding.

Although no urgent coal-mining manpower shortage presently exists, the projected growth, attrition, and retirement replacement rate in the mining population indicates that manpower requirements are likely to double by Ventilation plans for underground mines Monitoring of toxic, asphyxiant and explosive gases DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS Primary Ventilation The basis of effective ventilation of underground mines is the adequacy of the primary ventilation system, that is the total volume flow through the mine which isFile Size: KB.

Conveyor systems have come into common use in coal mines during the past decade. As this is written, belt conveyors are beginning to make their appearance in metal mines as a part of the underground transportation system, and an increasing number probably will be installed during the next few years.

Locomotive Haulage. Underground coal mining is the extraction of coal from below the surface of the earth. The coal is worked through tunnels, passages, and openings that are connected to the surface for the purpose of the removal of the coal.

Mechanical equipment breaks the coal to a size suitable for haulage. Chapter 18 Refrigeration Plant and Mine Air Conditioning Systems Malcolm J. McPherson 2 INTRODUCTION One of the earliest methods of temperature control in underground mines was the importation of naturally produced ice from the surface.

Blocks of. Ø The goal of the planning and design of underground coal mining operations is a strategy for designing an integrated mineral exploitation system that will ensure that coal is extracted and prepared at a desired market specification, at a minimum unit cost, within acknowledged safety, health, social, legal and regulatory constraints.

(n) In all main power circuits, disconnecting switches shall be installed underground within five hundred feet of the bottoms of shafts and boreholes through which main power circuits enter the underground area of the mine and within five hundred feet of all other places where main power circuits enter the underground area of the mine.

absorbed power can be saved [ kW] with an estimated capital payback period of 18 months. The study clearly showed that an integrated approach to optimise the entire mine ventilation system has great potential for power saving, and that a clear, well defined methodology will be applicable to similar underground Size: 1MB.Surface mining and deep underground mining are the two basic methods of mining.

The choice of mining method depends primarily on depth, density, overburden, and thickness of the coal seam; seams relatively close to the surface, at depths less than approximately ft (55 m), are usually surface mined.Get this from a library!
