Underground locomotive haulage - HSE

1 Locomotives were introduced for underground operation in coal mines in the early 1930s but their use did not become widespread until after the 1939-1945 war. The first diesel powered locomotive with a flameproof engine was introduced in 1939 following its approval by the Mines Department in conjunction with the Safety in Mines Research Board. 2 Following nationalisation of the coal industry ...

Diesel Emissions Management in Underground Coal Mines

The mines inspectorate expects all underground coal mines to have a diesel emissions management plan which forms part of the mine’s Safety and Health Management System (SHMS). An integrated approach that involves relevant disciplines such as engineering, mine design and ventilation, hygienist, training and supervision is required. Key elements of the plan would include: Roles and ...

Diesel particulate matter investigations in underground ...

Abstract—A number of underground coal mines are using diesel-powered vehicles as the main source fuel for the transport. The primary concern with these diesel-operated vehicles is the diesel particulate matter (DPM), because it is known to be a carcinogenic agent after prolonged exposure. A well-designed ventilation system is necessary to dilute DPM, so that air quality is maintained to ...

Making Underground Equipment Moves Easier Coal Age

Moving underground coal mining equipment from one section to another can be time consuming and costly. Traditionally, moving a large electrically powered piece of equipment, such as a continuous miner, feeder-breaker or a roofbolter, required the power center to move along with the equipment. The distance the crews could achieve in a shift were limited by the length of the trailing cable that ...

Catastrophic engine failure in underground coal mine

• While operating in an underground coal mine, a catastrophic failure of a diesel engine system occurred, resulting in hot internal reciprocating components being ejected through the engine block and exposing them to the mine atmosphere. This created an ignition source which has the potential to cause an explosion of methane gas. • Preliminary investigation has identified a damaged oil ...
