Abstract 26 inventions, either patented or for which a patent had been applied for, were investigated and compared with existing systems. The 5 which showed promise were: procedure to improve the collection efficiency of wet dust collectors; exhaust ventilation of stone dust on self-advancing face supports; dust exhaust system on a workbench for fine engineering (specifically manufacture of dental prostheses); exhaust of spray mists; precipitation of dust and mist particles in tunnel driving. A further 16 processes or procedures not considered worthy of further development are presented. 4 inventions were not classified.
