Question: How can I determine the proper pipe thickness for a slurry line?
Keywords: slurry,slurries,pipe,line,thickness,calculation,determination
Answer: Design of slurry piping systems should follow ANSI/ASME B31.1 and B31.11 Codes. A simple equation for this calculation is as follows:t = (PD) / (2S) + Cwhere:t = pipe wall thickness, in.P = maximum design pressure of the pipe, psigS = maximum allowable design stress, psigC = corrosion or erosion allowance, in.
