232 Historical Perspective Methane Explosions In Coal Mines

Explosion Prevention in Mining Oct throughout history coalmining explosions have accounted for the deaths of thousands of workers as a result of the combustion of either methane gas or coal dust within the mine a significant amount of progress has been made in understanding the causes to these disasters however these explosions remain a lifethreatening aspect of a coal.Methane explosions occur in mines when a buildup of methane gas comes into contact with a heat source and there is not enough air to dilute the gas to levels below its explosion point Likewise fine particles of coal dust in the right concentration that come into contact with a.
