APPLICATIONS, TECHNOLOGY AND ECONOMICS OF SLURRY PIPELINING

The transportation of bulk commodities over long distances by means of slurry pipelines holds great promise in the future. Slurry pipelining is a relatively new mode of transportation which has proven successful in a few unique applications and appears to be technically feasible and to offer economic benefits in many as yet untried circumstances. This paper presents a discussion of the applications, technology and economics of slurry pipelines and conveys a general appreciation of the problems facing transportation analysts attempting to determine the long-range potential and impact of slurry transportation.
