Solid-liquid mixture is a unique mixture. It requires special attention, especially when we talk about solid-liquid flow slurry pipeline. As of my experience with solid-liquid flow, pipe leakage due to solid substance attack is the most obvious problem.
In my case, solid-liquid mixture are precious metal catalyst and organic liquid.
Pipeline corrosion was the most obvious problem I saw. Plant shut down has to be done several times due to this problem. Recent problem related to this solid-liquid flow is the mixture has caused pump casing and volute to be eroded. And that’s very costly and takes more times to solve.
Another problem that I faced in the past were pipe clogging and not smooth flow due to improper pipe line and distribution designs.
So that’s why there are many things we shall consider about solid-liquid flow in order to design appropriate pipeline.
If you are new to this slurry system, then I am please to show you great textbook about solid-liquid flow slurry pipeline that will give comprehensive study about the system. The book title is Slurry Systems Handbook. [Read more…] about Great Textbook About Solid-Liquid Flow Slurry Pipeline
