ENMIN 5100 Mine Power Supply and Drainage Mine Power Design Task Answer all questions (worth 30% of total assessment) Due Date 21 July 2017 If required it may be assumed that g = 9.81 m/s2, Density of water = 1000 kg/m3 A mine consists of a two stoping sections located at a depth of 2200 m accessed by a shaft. If 10 rock drills are in the stoping section that is located a total distance of 1500m from the shaft and 8 rock drills are located in the second stope which is a total distance of 1800m from the shaft bottom determine the pressure and quantity requirements required of a compressor at surface to service the requirements of these rock drills. Both stoping sections are accessed from the same main drive. Both stopes are accessed from this main drive by access drives that are 150m in length. The average atmospheric pressure at the surface is 100 kPa and a steel pipe conveys the compressed air. There is no receiver in the system, thus assume the drills are working continuously. Hint to answer this you will need to undertake a pipe system design. At a depth of 2200m, the average air temperature is 26°C and atmospheric pressure is 105kPa. Marking schedule: General description of the system 10% Detailed design 20% Compressor selection 10% Design calculations 35% Design summary and conclusions 15% Referencing 5% Formatting/spelling 5%
