Thermal Modeling of an Underground Mine Cooling Car ,
The mining industry is continuously looking into more efficient systems to cool the mining environment in order to save costs Currently most mines use bulk air coolers to cool the air going down the shaft and cooling cars to cool the ventilation air in the haulages and cross-cuts
Method of and apparatus for the cooling of underground ,
For cooling of underground mine-shafts which extend over several levels at different depths and/or of the machinery installed therein, a tube-chamber feeder system which is operated for the hydraulic transport of solids is used

Apart from mine-air measures, ergonomic guidelines and regulations require the cooling of underground work plac Today’s modern high-performance mines very often need cooling capacities exceeding 10 MW The most economic way is a central cooling system on surface, where the latest technologies and the most efficient concepts can ,
A Study of Heat Stress Exposures and Interventions ,
Health (NIOSH), in cooperation with mine operators, conducted a study of heat stress exposures among mine rescue workers in underground min Mine rescue workers face extreme heat loads as they enter hot
Safer Underground: Bluebird Expands Its Data Center in a Mine
Unlike a salt mine, which is dug vertically, the limestone mine went sideways, creating horizontal galleries that make it an ideal shell for equipment that only needs raised floors and a dropped ceiling for power, networking, and cooling
Top 5 Ventilation & Cooling Hazards on Underground Mines ,
Mining, as a global industry, is being pushed constantly into more remote and challenging environments This creates a need for innovative and adaptable methods of ventilation and cooling for the safety of the people that work in the min

In addition to mine ventilation, heat stress and egress consulting, Rick has been principal technical adviser in the area of mine refrigeration to a number of clients covering all styles of refrigeration including: bulk surface and underground air cooling, underground cooling towers, underground spot coolers and reticulated chilled water He .
In underground mine or tunnel cooling, the PES system represents the interface between the cooling system on surface - which produces and provides the cold water via the shaft pipes at high pressure to the underground - and the underground piping network, which supplies the cold water at low pressure to the roadway coolers
KTI erects a jumbo ice plant at Harmony’s , - MINING,
KTI was selected by Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited to supply and install an ice cooling system at Harmony’s Phakisa gold mine in South Africa Harmony is one of the largest gold producers in the world, generating annual revenues of US$18billion Underground mines with depths reaching more .
cooling on mine energy and found that for the base case model: Having established the energy requirements of a base case the energy model can be used to evaluate the performance of different strategies for energy reduction
Cooling method technologies include ice slurry systems, cooling tower, bulk air cooling, spot coolers, among others The opportunities and costs of these methods must be thoroughly understood before a mine can implement a heat management program
