Description
A miner's lamp ensures the burning of a protected flame in the presence of an explosive gas by regulating the necessary supply of atmospheric air and by allowing the products of combustion to pass through without igniting the gaseous atmosphere. If the atmosphere is so heavily charged that noxious gas enters the lamp, its presence is indicated by a change in the length and color of the flame.
