Processing non-Newtonian products: Determining the pressure drop for a power law fluid along a straight circular pipe

Published 17 March 2017 | By Malvern Panalytical

In the chemical and process industries, it is often required to pump fluids over long distances from storage to various processing units and/or from one plant site to another. It is thus often necessary to calculate the pressure requirements for pumping, the selection of optimum pipe diameter as well as measurement and control of flow rate. Many of the formulae required to estimate such parameters are available in the literature and require some knowledge of these processing parameters as well as fluid properties.
