Blind borehole process

Jump to navigationJump to search

In the underground gasification of coal, a borehole is drilled to a blind end having no outside connection. A tube of smaller diameter is inserted nearly the full length through which air is passed to supply a gasification reaction at the far end of the hole. The hot gases return around the outside of the tube. See also: underground gasification Nelson
