Slurry Pipelines

Slurry pipelines are used mostly for short haul duties, e.g. dredging (~300m ), process plants (~300m) and tailings (~3 km) In some long haul duties, minerals are pumped many hundreds of kilometres.

Slurry Pipelines

Each type of duty has its own best operation point, where the size of the particles and the tendency to settle has a strong impact on capital and operating cost.

Settling Slurries

Non Settling Slurries contain particles that remain in suspension for a long time

Settling Slurries contain particles that will fall and settle at the bottom of a container

Larger particles require increased transport velocity Smaller particles (particularly fines <40 m) can modify viscosity. Helps to suspend larger particles.

1. Durands Theory is purely correlative. 2. The curve fit was for 305 points, for sand and coal running between 200 m and 25 mm.

3. The results are in Head of Carrier Fluid usually water. 4. As transport velocity becomes large, the slurry curve converges to water head loss from above.

In the limit the slip velocity is roughly constant as the average velocity of particles in direction of flow equals approaches the velocity of the liquid i.e.Vsolid = Vliquid the homogeneous limit . In other words Hs << Hw In Durand Theory in the limit Hs zero

Lazarus Neilsen Theory is a correlation theory that claims to be more accurate than Durand and Newitts theories. They proposed that the mass flow rate ratio (M*), defined as the ratio of mass flow of solids to carrier fluid, should be used instead of the volumetric concentration (Cv)

They plotted friction factor fM for the mixture against the base friction factor fB to develop their final correlation.

Conclusions

1. Not all is well with the theory of slurry transport. 2. There is considerable disagreement amongst theories regarding 1. Deposition velocity 2. Head Loss at Deposition

3. There is no clear agreement on the forces and friction associated with various mechanisms, (e.g. fluidised bed, heterogeneous flow, homogeneous flow etc) or the velocities at which they occur. 4. Many of the theories blow up when large particles are involved. Say > 2mm. Comparison between calculations at these sizes indicates a need for model studies in future developments. 5. Where possible dont pump at sizes > 150 m.
