Section I

Overflow and Settling Tanks
Here in Section I we have the Overflow Tank – what it says .. overflow of water from the Jig tank. It is at this point that the water is pumped back to the Supply Tank to the start of the cycle. Settling tank – Where the coal and shale separate. From this tank the cleaned coal will moved to the coal tipple where the larry will be filled from. The Settling Tank allows the cleaned coal to settle to the bottom where it will be picked up by a conveyor belt and moved to the Larry Tipple.

None of the footings, mechanism, pumping and pipes or other metal work is covred here. That will be in Section IV.

  1. Ed – I have been following your projects on the many online outlets that you use; your work is outstanding! I am especially interested in the coal washery project inasmuch as I plan to build one for my On30 layout. Thanks to your research and sketching, I have a better understanding of the size of the various components. While my modeling skills are nowhere near yours, I will be watching closely as you post additional plans on this site. Ted

    • Ted,
      Thanks. I need to get back to this. I have the entire thing constructed in Sketchup – need to continue and make the plans. When I do .. I will post a PDF here so anyone can download.
