Abstract: Research has shown that one of the most effective methods of preventing the frictional ignition of methane/air mixtures at the coal face is to spray water directly behind the cutting picks and parallel to their direction of travel. However, not all mining machines have water available on the cutting drums and this research report discusses the current status of wet-heads.
