Centrifugal Slurry Pump Concentration Limit Testing and Evaluation. Phase 1

04-069-215Final

Abstract

Tests were carried out on three different types of phosphate matrix slurries with regards to their pipeline friction, effect on pump head quantity and cavitation performance at (high) concentrations of solids around 40, 50 and 60% by weight.
Rheological tests have also been carried out as part of FIPR Contract No. 04-04-070 on the fine carrier liquid component of the slurries by the University of Florida.

This report is about the original GIW Pipeline/Pump tests and with the University of Florida, results incorporated into the main report.
