A Mineral Slurry Data Bank - 2 Volume Set. Volume 1 - Report.
NTIS: PB/220-566 Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :115 pages
This study contains slurry pipelining data on 16 materials including coal, coal refuse, ores, concenqrates, and tailings. This report comprises the data bank in the form of a computer printout listing system constants and headloss data for each material. These data are useful for designing hydraulic pipeline transportation systems for mined materials. The computer cards are on file with the Bureau of Mines at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and with the basic Engineering Department of the Colorado School of Mines at Golden, Colorado. The purpose of the data bank is to assist in the development of a universal headloss correlation for mineral slurries. Present headloss correlations were tested and found to be inconsistent for the various mineral slurries. Thus, a different approach was taken, that of compiling a library of stanton diagrams relating friction factor and reynolds numbers for a given slurry in a given pipe diameter. The advantages of the diagrams are demonstrated and discussed.
