Across various industries, very large tonnages of partially and fully processed materials and waste are pumped every year in the form of solid-liquid mixtures, known as slurries.
Although widely used, efficient slurry transport still has serious challenges. Some of these challenges include particle settling, wear, degradation of flocculated or friable solids, ability to pump the slurry and cost.
The design of slurry pumping systems is complex compared to that of clean fluids. The purpose of this seminar is to elucidate current thinking in the area of slurry transport and provide an overview of :
• Slurry rheology and pipe flow calculations for non-settling slurries
• Pipe flow and calculations for settling slurries
• General pump maintenance
Who Should Attend
Engineers, engineering students/ graduates and anyone who needs to select, specify, commission, install and/or troubleshoot slurry pumping equipment and slurry pipelines.
