Common Airflow Measuring Techniques
As with any industrial application, safety is key. Safe working environments for workers, for employers, and for the general public is critical. This is no exception in mining. One major concern for safety in mining is proper ventilation in the mine. Improper ventilation techniques can lead to reduced air quality underground, reduced oxygen levels, and even a build up of toxic gases. This is why it is vital to monitor and measure airflow in mine shafts, to properly control ventilation systems. Below, some common techniques for monitoring and measuring airflow are briefly explained.
