Delegates to the 2019 Transportation & Sedimentation Conference will be treated to a technical tour of the Slurry Test Facility at Paterson & Cooke’s premises in Pinelands on Thursday 26th September. Our 1 200 m2 test facility includes large scale slurry pump and pipeline test loops of up to 300 mm in diameter, viscometers, thickening and filtration test facilities, UCS and Triaxial test machines, a backfill and slurry materials characterisation laboratory, as well as a specialised Pilot Plant facility. During the visit they will have the opportunity to interact with experts who are experienced in test work of all kinds.
