Slurry Transport


 

IMP is able to offer a unique slurry transport system for conveying primary slurry samples. Aliquots of between 250 and 1000 ml are taken from the main process, and from there the system functions as follows:

 

  • Samples are transported via a pipe to the IMP Sending Vessel where water is added to aid in the transport process.
  • The vessel is pressurized, and the sample is pneumatically transported through a 20mm stainless steel pipe up to a distance of 154m.
  • The sample arrives in a receiving tank which is essentially used as a deceleration unit, and thereafter is gravitated to a holding tank.
  • The holding tank is equipped with a stirrer with 2 speeds (on-bottom movement and full agitation).
  • The sample can be accumulated in the tank for any given time period until the required composite has been collected.  The maximum volume is approximately 30 litres.
  • Once the final composite has been obtained, the agitator reaches full speed and the sample is discharged to gravitate to the final sample cutter.
  • Time based cuts from the stream are taken from the final sample cutter until the holding tank is completely discharged, ensuring a representative sub-sample.

 

A diverter is installed between all stages, allowing the screening of particles, as well as the option to flush material past the standard route.
