LONG DISTANCE PIPELINES

Long distance slurry pipeline transport is a proven technology and is now widely accepted as a viable alternative to conventional bulk transport. Key to the success of a long distance system is minimizing operating costs by determining the optimum grinding requirements for pipeline transport.

Our Experience

Our extensive laboratory services and in-depth knowledge of slurry flow behaviour means that we are able to determine the most efficient combination of material properties together with pump and pipeline requirements for long distance transport. We have completed numerous long distance slurry pipeline projects, from pre-feasibility to detailed engineering design, construction assistance and commissioning.

We have completed numerous long distance slurry pipeline projects, from pre-feasibility to detailed engineering design, construction assistance and commissioning.

We have developed sophisticated simulation software used to determine the control requirements for long distance pipelines to ensure that overpressure due to transient events is minimised. With the software, control sequences such as start-up and shut down, are tested and the consequences of fault or trip conditions are simulated. The pumping system can be assessed with multiple slurry batches, covering a range of different densities and hydraulic properties including water batches in the pipeline to simulate the effect that batches may have on the system behaviour and the response of the system to varying slurry properties.

Within the Paterson & Cooke long distance pipeline group, the team have been involved in engineering many of the slurry pipeline systems operating throughout the world today. The multidiscipline LDP group undertakes all phases of pipeline engineering, from studies to detail design, construction support, commissioning and operator training.
