flushing water velocity calculation


This article deals with sediment transport for non-cohesive material. A 16” produced water header, which has 2” inlet line from sand treatment package, allows some sand particles settle in it. The sand deposition is more serious when there is no flow in produced water header. Therefore, it was thought to install a water flushing line upstream of tapping of 2” inlet line from sand treatment. This article explains that flushing water flow rate and water channel velocity is to be maintained to avoid sand deposition in pipe line and thus can be used as a guideline in any sediment transport application for liquid / solid system.
