Colliery Explosions. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 15 April 1876
Colliery Explosions. ON Tuesday evening, Mr. Alderman Taylor, of iRouhdale, read a paper before the Manchester Society of Scientific, on "Colliery Accidents Preventible by Positive Ventilation." In the course of his paper hie said :--The method of ventilating coal mines advocated in this paper I have termed " Positive" be cause it is different from all other known methods, namely, the furnaceo the fan, and the steam jet, or the pump, which are negative. The positive method consists in forcing the air into the mine by the piston and regulating its pressure and velocity at the exit. By the adoption of this plan the venti lation will be under completo con rol, both as to quantity and certainty, and moreover will be perfectly independent of atmospheric changes: The defects of the present modes of ventilation are that they are influenced by every baro nmetio change; that by the amseenQ o all pressure, except atmospheric, ventilation is suncertain and variabl the diffTerent parts oftlso-m...
