The directions of KOMAG’s investigations into diesel drives used in workings at risk of explosion are described. Two groups of research problems, i.e. the impact of a flameproof inlet- -outlet system on the engine’s operational parameters as well as identifying the phenomena in the engine regarding the emission of toxic substances with tests on improvement in the quality of exhaust gases, were specified.
