Title Auxiliary ventilation in its wider aspects
Bibliographic information Feb. 1981, p.573-581. Illus.
Abstract Discusses the basic theory of the use of single fans and fans in combination in coal mines, and explains the reasons why certain fans are suitable for series and parallel combinations. The basic theory of ventilation ducting efficiency is examined and applied in several ventilation problems to produce effective solutions. A method of calculating the best combinations of fans for specific ventilation duties is detailed, including an appreciation of ways of improving ventilation performance. The basic ventilation systems are covered briefly and related to degassing procedures. The installation of standby alternative ventilation systems is explained in relation to fan maintenance.
