Coarse Coal Hydrotransport Testing At the Hydraulic Transport Research Facility.
For Reference Only At Bureau Libraries :606 pages
This six-volume report describes a series of coarse coal hydraulic transport tests performed at the hydraulic transport research facility at the Pittsburgh Research Center in Bruceton, Pennsylvania. The primary objective of the research covered in this volume was to examine the performance of the 12-inch (300 mm) pipeline in transporting clean, 2-inch by 0 (51 mm by minus 50 mm) coal at velocities ranging from 5 to 18 ft/s (1.5 to 5.5 M/s) and concentrations ranging from 15 to 55 pct by weight. Head loss and deposition conditions for future system designs were quantified, and the effects of coal size distribution on hydraulic parameters, and the coal degradation rates caused by the pipeline and pumps, are also discussed.
