Slurry transport of industrial minerals has proven to be practical, economical, and efficient. Industrial minerals currently being pumped for long distances include cement, clay, phosphate, sand, and various waste product from industrial mineral processing operations. This paper touches upon the basic theory of hydraulic transport of solids and then considers the economic and engineering considerations upon which construction and operation of such a line would be based. Where possible, actual cost data are presented.
