Title Research on a ventilated shelter chamber
Original title Issledovanie kamery avarijnogo vozduhosnabženija [in Russian]
Bibliographic information Nov. 1980, No.11, p.57. Illus.
Abstract The feasibility of temporary shelters with emergency ventilation in which iron ore miners are protected from exposure to blasting fumes was studied. The shelter is a dead-end roadway closed off by a wooden partition, the entrance to which is sealed by a rubber curtain. To prevent blasting fume from entering, the shelter is slightly pressurised by a take-off from the roadway ventilation duct.
