A program to investigate pipeline behavior of raw and spent oil shale slurries was performed for the Bureau of Mines. Slurries were recirculated in pipeline loops with 150- and 200-mm-wide horizontal test sections and 150-mm-wide vertical test sections. Slurry concentrations from 10 to 60 wt pct were investigated. Critical and deposition velocities were observed. Head losses were measured at various velocities. Rheology measurements were made on representative homogeneous samples from the pipeline. From these data, pipeline energy requirements were predicted by computer and compared with pipeline data. Computer programs were also used to analyze pipeline data for two flow models. The economics of slurry transport of raw and spent shale were examined. Cost estimates encompassed a range of pipe widths to transport a wide range of throughputs of both raw and spent shale. Similar estimates were made for conveyor belt systems to provide a valid cost comparison.
