Slurry Pipeline Systems


Efficient bulk materials handling of slurry pipeline systems.


Slurry pipeline systems for transporting concentrate over long distances, the course focuses on the processes, types of pumps and pumping stages of these bulk material handling systems. Further detailed are testwork designs, operations of slurry pipelines as well as industry case studies. no prior knowledge is required, suitable for those who perform, supervise, manage, audit, or oversee the development of bulk handling systems.

Key Learning Outcomes:

The course provides a concise overview of a broad range of equipment and terminology commonly utilised in industry, chemical and mineral processing. This is vital since pumps represent a large proportion of the operating equipment in many production and mineral processing situations, and a substantial investment in terms of capital and maintenance. Pump selection and operation can represent significant challenges to personnel given the vast array of pump type and duty.
