Slurry Pipeline Design For Operation With Centrifugal Pumps
The following covers what the writer sees as the main considerations involved in the design of a slurry pipeline. It is broken down into sections. This section is concerned mainly with the slurry and design of the hydraulics of the pipeline. The Slurry Pipeline Design and Operation section is concerned with the driving centrifugal pumps and associated equipment. Slurry pipeline technology is extremely complex and by no means a fully understood science, so the writer makes no claim in this document to cover all details. It is hoped; however, that this will enable a better understanding and provide the reader with sufficient information to lay out the design of a working system.
