The conventional methods of pressure balancing techniques have been classified into two categories viz., static and active and the concept of dynamic balancing of pressure introduced. Theory and practice of dynamic balancing of pressure have been explained and illustrated with details of a case study where fire was successfully controlled by this method. Relative advantages of the method have also been discussed. The technique needs minimal expenditure on material and equipment as the main emphasis is laid on utilization of available ventilation pressure in the mine for pressure balancing. The method is general enough for quick and economical application elsewhere under variety of underground conditions.
