Slurry pipe sanding: BBA approach for load case design criteria in brownfield projects
This blog article is intended to explain verification methods for slurry piping systems that are subject to periodic sanding. These methods ensure proper engineering for operational safety without overdesigning.
While designing slurry piping systems, establishing one specific design criteria may come to the forefront: how to adequately evaluate weight increase in a sanded pipe and which average slurry specific gravity (SG) to use.
BBA recently came across this situation on one of its brownfield projects. This is presented as a case study herein.
