Question: What is the best way to handle bend or turns in slurry piping systems?
Keywords: slurry,slurries,pipes,lines,bends,elbows,sweeps,radius,
Answer: Even long radius elbows should be avoided in slurry pipes and lines. They are often the site of severe erosion or solid/liquid separation. Only gentle pipe bends or sweeps should be used to turn a slurry line. Industrial experience has shown that a bend-radius-to-pipe-diameter ratio of 3-5 is recommended.
