In high temperature coal mine, the surface air cooler heat exchange efficiency decreases greatly because of high humidity and dust. In order to improve the heat exchange efficiency, the surface of the air cooler needs to be designed to reduce the dust adhesion, and improve the heat exchange efficiency. Based on the self-cleaning effect of lotus leaf, the surface of air cooler is designed and fin and tube are processed into the constructure of lotus leaf surface. With Ansys, the cooling effect of air cooler is simulated, and the experiment is done to test the heat exchange effect of the common air cooler and bionic air cooler in lab. By analysis, it can be concluded that the surface of bionic air cooler has the function of self-cleaning, and the structure can increase the heat exchange efficiency, which is higher above 30% than that of common air cooler. Key words: High temperature coal mine; Air cooler; Self-cleaning; Heat exchange efficiency
