View Full Version : Water table design

01-13-2011, 04:10 PM
Just thought I would post up a couple of pictures of the first draught of our plasma water table. The main section is 182 x 92 I beam that we had spare, so It seemed a good idea to try and use it up. However, things change and this design is now in the bin, but it may give someone an idea, so feel free to plunder. I didnt even get as far as drawing the legs on. There was going to be six in total and the width of the lower tank was designed around the spread of our fork lift to aid moving....

no need to have external fill/drain pipes, just place vertically in the reservoir, weld at top and gap at bottom... save on pipe and they won't get damaged by your forklift

Yes, see what your saying. It may not be obvious but there is a 10 mm fall in the upper tank towards the end so all the water will drain to that end where the pipes are. And it looks quite funky too .... But as mentioned, that design is now scrap and we are having another go....
