Título Modern lighting in British coal mines
Título original Moderne Grubenleuchten im britischen Steinkohlenbergbau [en alemán]
Información bibliográfica Mar. 1976, Vol.112, No.5, p.209-214. Illus.
Resumen This article, written by the Chief Electrical Engineer of the Mining Department of the United Kingdom National Coal Board, reviews briefly the main provisions of the British regulations concerning lighting in mines, with a tabulated list of recommended illumination levels at various underground workposts. This is followed by detailed comments on recent developments in lighting at the workplace, incidentally improving occupational safety, and on miners' cap lamps (with comments on the design of cap lamps). For fixed lighting installations at the workface 6 or 8W fluorescent tubes are more and more frequently used. Cap lamps are equipped with rechargeable lead batteries.
