Abstract The key issue when designing plants for slurry handling, is understanding the slurry environment. Pressure to use less water and operate at higher concentrations directly affects slurry flow behaviour. Using the Binghatn plastic rheological model, the impact that slurry rheology has on transitional pipe flow, particle settling in laminar shear flow, losses in valves and fittings, centrifugal pump derating and launder flow are presented.
