PROBLEM OF ELIMINATING EXPLOSIONS OF METHANE AND COAL DUST IN MINES

The aim of the article is a proposal for the elimination of methane explosions (and associated coal dust explosion) in coal mines, often leading to death.
It is proposed to replace in the mines natural artificial atmosphere comprising approximately 21% oxygen and 79% methane, a person is able to perform normal activity and which is safe on methane explosions. Suggestions made for creating and maintenance such an atmosphere, conducting preparatory and cleaning work.
To create normative documents of Rostechnadzor on the application of such atmosphere, the biomedical experiments proposed, with the expectation of a positive outcome.
Because there are doubts about the harmlessness to human health long stay in the atmosphere, can be used previously proposed capsules with natural atmosphere, of which the miners remotely control treatment and sinking machines.

Keywords
