Slurry pumping system pressure … critical analysis info not always available due to plugged gauges…

Nov 7, 2012   //   by David S. Pratt   //   Business  //  1 Comment

The ability to confirm accurate system pressure in piping handling solids laden slurries has plagued process engineers forever. Process slurries such as alumina hydrate, crushed rock, or boiler ash carry high concentrations of solid particles in solution throughout the piping system while maintaining the necessary velocity to keep the solids in suspension. As a result, a reliable visible confirmation that the system pressure is within the proper range is critical…

The Appcor Slurry Gauge Guard is a simple but effective device, designed by a long time slurry handling equipment supplier to effectively isolate the pressure gauge to prevent plugging. The top of the guard is filled with mineral oil and the gauge reads the pressure or vacuum through the barrier fluid and remains free of solids.Purge valves and/or scale removal rods are optional

 

Simple, inexpensive, and valuable process information that has been sacrificed for years is now easy to access.

  • Use of Fly Ash Slurry for packing of void created by extraction of Coal.
    Fly Ash Slurry would be transported through 2inches pipe to underground up to the mine site. Process slurries such as boiler ash carry high concentrations of solid particles in solution throughout the piping system while maintaining the necessary velocity to keep the solids in suspension. As a result, a reliable visible confirmation that the system pressure is within the proper range is critical

    Therefore a simple but effective device like Appcor Slurry Gauge Guard designed to effectively isolate the pressure gauge to prevent plugging is required for the installation.

    So please send more details along with cost.
