Pipeline design and pump selection for non-Newtonian fluid foods


, : Pipeline design and pump selection for non-Newtonian fluid foods. Food technology 40(12): 78-85

Mathematical relationships are presented in 20 equations for describing and calculating viscometric flow, energy loss due to flow friction, the kinetic energy of flow, the work output of pumps, calculations for appropriate flow pipe size, and optimum pump characteristics (pump speed; inlet pressure requirements; pump pressure drop to initiate flow) for pump selection and pipeline design characteristics for transport of non-Newtonian fluid foods during processing. These mathematical relationships represent state-of-the-art methods to aid food processing engineers in designing such pumping systems. (wz)
