Investigative Report - Diesel Wet Scrubber - Flashing Headlight Warning Circuit
MSHA's Approval and Certification Center presents a design of an electrical control circuit that will flash the headlights of permissible diesel powered equipment when the water in the wet exhaust conditioner system is nearly depleted. The flashing headlights will warn the machine operator that the system water is low and will allow adequate time for the operator to tram to a water source and replenish the water before the machine's safety system shuts down the diesel engine. The permissible electric flashing headlight control circuit was designed for easy retrofit into the existing machine lighting circuit. Field testing of the design at two underground coal mines proved the circuit's mine worthiness in addition to its acceptability as a warning device to the miners operating the diesel powered equipment.
