Jeffrey Retarding Conveyor Installation
Description: A steel cable retarding conveyor built by the Jeffrey Manufacturing Company of Columbus, Ohio, was installed at this tipple owned by the Red Jacket Coal and Coke Company, Red Jacket, West Virginia, 1916. Used on long, steep hillsides, a retarding conveyor was designed to slow down the flow of coal to a tipple below. The coal was easier to handle and breakage of the coal was reduced at lower flow speeds. View on Ohio Memory.
