||Refrigerating installations to overcome problems of microclimate in underground mineworkings

||Problems of mine ventilation and air conditioning in underground coal mines are linked to the depth of the workings, the rate of production, the amount of electric power installed, and efforts made to improve workplace conditions. This article considers the possibilities afforded by various mine ventilation techniques used for air cooling, and emphasises above all the necessity to use refrigerating equipment: criteria for siting this equipment; elements and their purpose; decentralised and centralised siting. After exhausting the possibilities afforded by decentralised installations, the present trend is towards large centralised installations. Examples, and principles on wich these installations work.
