Materials and Their Characteristics # 1985 York
A new test has been developed to evaluate the abrasion performance of different pipe materials. The Rotating Pipe Test simulates sliding bed flow of a slurry and gives quite excellent data reproducibility. The influence of sample geometry and slurry changing frequency and particle size have been assessed. The effects of real and artificial slurries have been evaluated on a range of metals and polymers. A High Speed Stirrer Test is being developed t o simulate turbulent flow.
