Methane Gas Detection In Coal Mines

CDC - Mining Topic - Methane Detection and Monitoring - NIOSH

Jul 23, 2020  Methane Detection and Monitoring What is the health and safety problem? The use of machine-mounted methane monitors is required by federal regulations to alert miners to the presence of potentially dangerous concentrations of methane while mining coal. The monitors must be permanently mounted on a mining machine to provide continuous readings of methane levels near a working face.
