The conclusion that capsule pipelining is feasible in Canada, resulting from studies in 1967-1968 carried out by Solids Pipeline Research & Development Association in a loop of 4 in. pipe 3900 ft long, is examined using existing railway tariffs. Capsule pipelining also is considered as a supplement to railway movement of marginal bulk raw materials. Slury transport versus capsule pipelining is compared for a specific situation. The studies indicate that capsule pipelining deserves serious attention whenever expansion of the Canadian transportation system is needed.
