Les applications du froid au rafraîchissement des mines.

Auteurs : WHILLIER A

Type d'article : Article, Article de la RIF


A review of factors necessitating the widespread use of refrigeration in deep mines, and of practical considerations which dictate where the plant must be located and how the cooling must be distributed, is presented. The first priority in using refrigeration is to cool the service water that is used for suppression of dust and for rockdrilling. The second is to cool the incoming air in order to counteract the effects of autocompression. The third, and by far the most troublesome and costly, involves recooling the ventilation air as it passes through the workings. It is predicted that the recent growth rate in refrigeration capacity of 20% pa will continue well into the present decade.
