|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.
