  • TITLE: Towards Optimizing a Personal Cooling Garment for Hot and Humid Deep Mining Conditions

    AUTHORS: Chady Al Sayed, Ludwig Vinches, Stéphane Hallé

    KEYWORDS: Personal Cooling Garment, Heat Stress, Thermal Efficiency, Deep Mines

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Journal of Optimization, Vol.5 No.1, March 11, 2016

    ABSTRACT: Workers exposed to hot and humid conditions suffer from heat stress that affects their concentration and can potentially lead to an increase in workplace accidents. To minimize heat stress, protective equipment may be worn, such as personal cooling garments. This paper presents and discusses the performances, advantages and disadvantages of existing personal cooling garments, namely air-cooled, liquid-cooled, phase change, hybrid, gas expansion and vacuum desiccant cooling garments, and a thermoelectric cooling technology. The main objective is to identify the cooling technique that would be most suitable for deep mining workers. It appears that no cooling technology currently on the market is perfectly compatible with this type of mining environment. However, combining two or more cooling technologies into a single hybrid system could be the solution to an optimized cooling garment for deep mines.
