Slurry pipelines are widely utilized in most mining operations to transport the raw materials and the tailings. These pipelines typically suffer from high wear rates. For example, in Canada’s oil sands industry, pipeline wear rates of 1 cm/yr are considered representative. To generate and measure...
The demand for accurate bitumen-pentane mass transfer data was the main motivation behind this research. Difficulties such as complex phase behavior, high viscosity and opacity of the hydrocarbon invariably lead to failure of conventional techniques to measure mass transfer coefficients...
