The effect of surface Bulk Air Cooler water flow on deep-level mine temperatures

Mine cooling and ventilation systems ensure favourable working conditions underground. Mines are hesitant to reduce the Bulk Air Cooler (BAC) water flow as doing so raises safety concerns. Previous studies on this topic compared the measured wet-bulb temperatures to the maximum allowable wet-bulb temperature of 27.5°C. This paper investigates how the… (More)
