Challenges Faced in Mine Illumination

Coal mining operations present some of the harshest working conditions in the world. With a complete lack of space, severely confined spaces, the presence of dangerous machinery and concentrations of methane produced from the mining process, their requirements for hardware, particularly where lighting is concerned, are very specific. Here we will discuss some of these dangers, and how they are met by high-quality LED lighting for mines. Challenges Presented by the Environment The environment in which coal mining takes place presents a number of challenges that need to be circumvented with the…
