THE DEVELOPMENT AND OPERATION OF A TEST FACILITY FOR PIPELINE ABRASIVE WEAR MEASUREMENT

This paper is derived from work carried out in order to set up a slurry pipeline wear test facility. A summary of a survey of published material dealing with pipe wear is presented, and indicates which aspects of the problem have already been investigated, and where further attention is required. Various possible techniques for measuring pipe wear are discussed, both for steel pipes, and for those containing a wear-resisting lining. Some of the methods are rejected, and the remainder are developed, and evaluated experimentally.
