Water pumps are removed whenever a coal mine closes and water levels recover within the mine. Naturally occurring minerals, suspended in the water flow, can contaminate riverbeds, stopping plant growth and affecting wildlife.
Enduramaxx designed a bespoke conical tank system to allow iron and minerals to mix with air and sink to the bottom of the tank. The controlled flow of water through the tanks allows the iron to settle and be removed as a sludge via a low-level drain.
6 x 6m3 open-top conical tanks manufactured from rotationally moulded polyethene
1 x galvanised steel support frame including access to the top of the tank
Internal pipework to weir over to the next tank
Fabricated plastic grid for plastic media containment in the cone
