TDA-RCA CAPSULE PIPELINE PROJECT. PHASE 3 REPORT. PART 1

This is a summary of an investigation of capsule pipelines. About 67,000 sets of measurements were gathered and analyzed. Chapter 2, Designing a Capsule Pipeline, presents a systematic approach to calculations. Size of pipeline is determined first from solid throughput, line fill and capsule velocity. Capsule pressure gradient is determined with equations presented in Chapters 4 and 5 for cylinders and in Chapter 6 for spheres. Two pressure gradients, due to flow of capsules and liquid, are combined to give total pressure drop. Chapter 7 has calculations for liquid flow rates from which the required horsepower and number of pumping stations can be determined. Six appendices form Part 2 of the report.
