CHAPTER 18. REFRIGERATION PLANT AND MINE AIR

refrigeration unit. The evaporator is a heat exchanger, typically of the shell-and-tube configuration in mining refrigeration plant. In the larger units, the refrigerant liquid is on the outside of the tubes while the medium to be cooled (for example, water, brine or glycol) passes through the tubes. Smaller units

Ventilation and Cooling in Underground Mines

Mar 13, 2011· As the depth of mining increases, auto-compression can cause the cooling capacity of the air to become negative and the effect of supplying more air is to increase the mine refrigeration load. In this case, the amount of ventilation supplied should be the minimum consistent with meeting contaminant control and increasing amounts of

Refrigeration plant and mine air conditioning systems

The vapour compression refrigeration cycle, currently the most widespread method of artificial cooling, appears to have first been used in mining during the 1920s. Examples included the famous Morro Velho Mine in Brazil (1923) and experimental work in British coal mines ( Hancock, 1926 ).

Air cycle refrigeration system for cooling deep mines

Mar 01, 1988· (Mots cl: froid; systes frigorifiques; refroidissement) Since 1977 most new refrigeration plants for cooling mines have been installed on the surface. The cold water produced by these plants is used for cooling the ventilation air (either on the surface or underground) and as service water for normal mining operations.

5 key innovations in mining ventilation

If the NHEET project can successfully replicate the natural ventilation properties of the Creighton mine, it could not only displace the capital and operational costs of a refrigeration and heating system, it could reduce the overall energy consumption of mines reducing costs while also improving the environmental impact of underground mining.

Refrigeration Principles and how a Refrigeration System

REFRIGERATION EFFECT "TON" A common term that has been used in refrigeration work to define and measure capacity or refrigeration effect is called a ton of refrigeration. It is the amount of heat absorbed in melting a tone of ice (2,000 lb) over a 24-hour period. The ton of refrigeration is equal to 288,000 Btu. This may be calculated by

Refrigeration applied in the cooling of mines ScienceDirect

Nov 01, 1980· The present installed refrigeration capacity of mines is about 530 MW (150000 refrigeration tons), with an annual growth rate exceeding 20%. This high growth-rate is the consequence of several factors, including: mines going deeper, or into new areas; new mines being opened up; the declared intention of the mining industry to speed up the

The Application of Refrigeration in Mechanised Mines AusIMM

The history of mine refrigeration dates back to 1919 when the first plant was installed at Morro Velho, Brazil. By 1965, the total installed capacity (worldwide) reached about 100 MW(R) i. Since 1965 the growth in mine refrigeration capacity has been exponential, with a doubling every six or seven years (Howes and Nixon, 1997).

The future use of refrigeration in British coal mines

This paper examines the methods presently available to apply refrigeration to a longwall district of a coal mine with particular reference to both the sources of heat and humidity around a district, and the specific locations which require cooling. Other methods to improve climatic conditions are also investigated and computer-predicted results from a district temperature prediction program

Powering ventilation systems consumes 25-50% of the total energy requirements of an underground coal mine. If the NHEET project can successfully replicate the natural ventilation properties of the Creighton mine, it could not only displace the capital and operational costs of a refrigeration and heating system, it could reduce the overall energy consumption of mines reducing costs while

Purging Air From Refrigeration Systems

May 28, 2003· To determine the amount of air in a refrigeration system, check the condenser pressure and temperature of the refrigerant leaving the condenser against the data in a temperature-pressure chart. If, for example, your ammonia temperature is 85 degrees F, the theoretical condenser pressure should be 151.8 psig.
