Transportation of High Concentration Coal Ash Slurries… pdf For transportation of solids through slurry pipeline, specific gravity is an important design parameter as it decides the settling characteristics of the slurry.
The design velocity is significant with reference to the critical velocity .Critical velocity is an important parameter for a Slurry. When Slurry flows at velocity below the critical velocity solids in slurry may start separating out and setting in a horizontal pipe .
Volume SH 2: Part 2 Pipeline Design Methods for Settling Slurries. This part provides a step-by-step calculation procedure for determining the pressure drop, minimum flow velocity and the optimum operating conditions for the transport of settling slurries by pipeline.
