  • Mineral slurry yield stress

    The Yield Stress of mineral pulps is an extremely important parameter and used in pumping studies. The state of aggregation and dispersion of the mineral particles in the slurries alters the values of the yield stress.

  • Ausenco developing an industry response plan for slurry pipelines

    Ausenco is busy incorporating client feedback from a recent symposium in Chile, into an industry response plan to address failures of long-distance slurry pipelines.

  • Ausenco symposium outlines importance of long term mining slurry pipeline management

    Whilst the technical and commercial feasibility for long distance slurry pipelines is now well proven in mining and other industries, existing pipeline assets are ageing. In this new, mature phase in the slurry pipeline industry, there now exists an increased risk of failure. Ausenco’s Pipeline Users’ Symposium was developed to progress industry excellence for long distance slurry pipelines.

  • Ausenco addresses slurry pipeline failure rates

    Having built over 80% of the world's long distance slurry pipelines, Ausenco is well placed to lead a discussion on preventative maintenance and integrity plans for these assets. Ausenco’s JP Fortin explains how in a recent interview with Mining Weekly.

  • Should a ceramic filter be used downstream of a slurry pipelines?

    Pipelines have been shown to be more economical and less impacting in the environmental sphere than the rail transport for transport of mineral pulps.
