SPLITVANE features a slurry lab to assist the mining and dredging industry with solutions leading to slower wear of castings.

The lab capabilities feature

– a 2500 gallons tank with conical bottom, a 200 mm x150 mm (8”x6”) slurry pump and 150 mm (6″)  pipe loop.

– a 3″ closed loop for testing non-Newtonian mixtures in laminar flow and determine pipe rheology

– a sump to test submersible dredging equipment and industrial sump pumps

– a tumbling drum to test degradation of high plasticity clays in dredging pipelines

Tests are conducted to obtain realistic pressure losses before constructing a long distance slurry or tailings pipeline, or drilling an off shore well by testing the rheology.

Splitvane also offers tests for design of smelting lances, combustion aerodynamics.
