Balanced ventilation

Jump to navigationJump to search

A system of ventilation in which the districts (each with its separate split) are so arranged with regard to length and resistance, that the use of ventilation regulators is unnecessary. Regulators, although sometimes unavoidable, reduce the efficiency and increase the power required to ventilate the mine. Nelson
