1 Friction Loss of Pulp Suspensions in Pipe I. INTRODUCTION In any stock piping system, the pump provides flow and develops hydraulic pressure (head) to overcome the differential in head between two points. This total head differential consists of pressure head, static head, velocity head and total friction head produced by friction between the pulp suspension and the pipe, bends, and fittings. The total friction head is the most difficult to determine because of the complex, nonlinear nature of the friction loss curve. This curve can be affected by many factors. The following analytical method for determining pipe friction loss is based on the recently published TAPPI Technical Information Sheet (TIS) (Reference 1), and is applicable to stock consistencies (oven-dried) from 2 to 6 percent. Normally, stock consistencies of less than 2% (oven-dried) are considered to have the same friction loss characteristic as water. The friction loss of pulp suspensions in pipe, as presented here, is intended to supersede the various methods previously issued. II. BACKGROUND II. BACKGROUND Figure 1 and Figure 2 show typical friction loss curves for two different consistencies (C 2 > C 1) of chemical pulp and mechanical pulp, respectively.

4 These regions may be described as follows: Region 1 (Curve AB) is a linear region where friction loss for a given pulp is a function of consistency, velocity, and pipe diameter. The velocity at the upper limit of this linear region (Point B) is designated V max. Region 2 (Curve BCD) shows an initial decrease in friction loss (to Point C) after which the friction loss again increases. The intersection of the pulp friction loss curve and the water friction loss curve (Point D) is termed the onset of drag reduction. The velocity at this point is designated V w. Region 3 (Curve DE) shows the friction loss curve for pulp fiber suspensions below the water curve. This is due to a phenomenon called drag reduction. Reference 2 describes the mechanisms which occur in this region. Regions 2 and 3 are separated by the friction loss curve for water, which is a straight line with a slope approximately equal to 2. III. DESIGN PARAMETERS To determine the pipe friction loss component for a specified design basis (usually daily mass flow rate), the following parameters must be defined:

5 a) Pulp Type - Chemical or mechanical pulp, long or short fibered, never dried or dried and reslurried, etc. This is required to choose the proper coefficients which define the pulp friction curve. b) Consistency, C (oven-dried) - Often a design constraint in an existing system. NOTE: If air-dried consistency is known, multiply by 0.9 to convert to oven-dried consistency. c) Internal pipe diameter, D - Lowering D reduces initial capital investment, but increases pump operating costs. Once the pipe diameter is selected. it fixes the velocity for a prespecified mass flow rate. d) Bulk velocity, V - Usually based on a pre-specified daily mass flow rate. Note that both V and D are interdependent for a constant mass flow rate. e) Stock temperature, T - Required to adjust for the effect of changes in viscosity of water (the suspending medium) on pipe friction loss. f) Freeness - Used to indicate the degree of refining or to define the pulp for comparison purposes. g) Pipe material - Important to specify design correlations and compare design values. IV. PIPE FRICTION ESTIMATION PROCEDURE The bulk velocity (V) will depend on the daily mass flow rate and the pipe diameter (D) selected. The final value of V can be optimized to give the lowest capital investment and operating cost with due consideration of future demands or possible system expansion. The bulk velocity will fall into one of the regions pre-viously discussed. Once it has been determined in which region the design velocity will occur, the appro-priate correlations for determining pipe friction loss value(s) may be selected. The following describes the procedure to be used for estimating pipe friction loss in each of the regions. Region 1 The upper limit of Region 1 in Figure 3 (Point B) is designated Vmax. The value of V max is determined using Equation [1] and data given in Table I or IA. V max = K' C o (ft/s), where K' = numerical coefficient (constant for a given pulp is attained from Table I or IA. C = consistency (oven-dried, expressed as a percentage, not decimally), and o = exponent (constant for a given pulp), obtained from Table I or IA. It the proposed design velocity (V) is less than V max, the value of flow resistance (AH/L) may be calculated using Equation [2] and data given in Table II or IIA, and the appendices. H/L = F K V a C b D y (ft/100 ft),

6 where F = factor to correct for temperature, pipe roughness, pulp type, freeness, or safety factor (refer to Appendix D), K = numerical coefficient (constant for a given pulp), obtained from Table II or IIA, V = bulk velocity (ft/s), C = consistency (oven-dried, expressed as a percentage, not decimally), D = pipe inside diameter (in), and a, b, y = exponents (constant for a given pulp), obtained from Table II or IIA. For mechanical pumps, there is no true V max. The upper limit of the correlation equation (Equation [2]) is also given by Equation. In this case, the upper velocity is actually V w. Region 2 The lower limit of Region 2 in Figure 3 (Point B) is V max and the upper limit (Point D) is V w. The velocity of the stock at the onset of drag reduction is determined using Equation [3] V w = 4.00 C 1.40 (ft/s), where C = consistency (oven-dried, expressed as a percentage, not decimally). If V is between V max and V w, Equation 2 may be used to determine AHIL at the maximum point (V max ). Because the system must cope with the worst flow condition, AH/L at the maximum point (V max ) can be used for all design velocities between V max and V w. Region 3 A conservative estimate of friction loss is obtained by using the water curve. (AH/L)w can be obtained from a Friction Factor vs. Reynolds Number plot (Reference 3, for exam pie), or approximated from the following equation (based on the Blasius equation). (Δ H/L) w = 0.58 V 1.75 D (ft/1ooft), where V bulk velocity (ft/s), and D pipe diameter (in). Previously published methods. for calculating pipe friction loss of pulp suspensions gave a very conservative estimate of head toss. The method just described gives a more accurate estimate of head loss due to friction, and has been used successfully in systems in North America and world-wide. Please refer to Appendix for equivalent equations for use with metric (SI) units. Tables 1 and IA are located in Appendix B; Tables II and IIA are located in Appendix C. Pertinent equations, in addition to those herein presented, are located in Appendix D. Example problems are located in Appendix E. V. HEAD LOSSES IN BENDS AND FITTINGS The friction head loss of pulp suspensions in bends and fittings may be determined from the basic equa-tion for head loss, Equation [5]

7 H = K V 1 2 /2g (ft), where K = loss coefficient for a given fitting, V = inlet velocity (ft/s), and g = acceleration due to gravity (32.2 ft/s2). Values of K for the flow of water through various types of bends and fittings are tabulated in numerous reference sources (Reference 3, for example). The loss coefficient for valves may be obtained from the valve manufacturer. The loss coefficient for pulp suspensions in a given bend or fitting generally exceeds the loss coefficient for water in the same bend or fitting. As an approximate rule, the loss coefficient (K) increases 20 percent for each 1 percent increase in oven-dried stock consistency. Please note that this is an approximation; actual values of K may differ, depending on the type of bend or fitting under consideration (4). APPENDIX A When metric (SI) units are utilized, the following replace the corresponding equations in the main text. V max =K'C a (m/s) where K' = numerical coefficient (constant for a given pulp), obtained from Table I or IA, C = consistency (oven-dried, expressed as a percentage, not decimally), and o = exponent (constant for a given pulp), obtained from Table I or IA. Ä H/L = F K V a C b D y (m/loom), where F = factor to correct for temperature, pipe roughness, pulp type, freeness, or safety factor (refer to Appendix D), K numerical coefficient (constant for a given pulp), obtained from Table II or ha, V = bulk velocity (m/s), C = consistency (oven-dried, expressed as a percentage, not decimally), D = pipe inside diameter (mm), and a, b, y = exponents (constant for a given pulp), obtained from Table II or IIA. V W = 1.22 C 1.40 (m/s), where C = consistency (oven-dried, expressed percentage, not decimally). (Ä H/L)w = 264 V 1.75 D (m/loom), where V = bulk velocity (m/s), and as a D=Pipe inside diameter (mm), H=K V 1 2 /2g (m), Where K=loss coefficient for a given fitting, V = inlet velocity (m/s), and g = acceleration due to gravity (9.81 m/s2). APPENDIX B Table 1

When the metric values are used, diameter (D) must be in millimetres (mm) and velocity (V) in metres per second (m/s). 2. Original data obtained in stainless steel and PVC pipe. PVC is taken to be hydraulically smooth pipe. 3. Stainless steel may be hydraulically smooth although some manufacturing processes may destroy the surface and hydraulic smoothness is lost. 4.

When the metric values are used, diameter (D) must be in millimetres (mm) and velocity must be in metres per second (m/s). 2. Original data obtained in stainless steel and PVC pipe (7,8, 9). 3.

10 APPENDIX D The following gives supplemental information to that where I.P.D. mill capacity (metric tons per day), provided in the main text. 1. Capacity (flow), Q where T.P.D.=mill capacity (short tons per day), and C consistency (oven-dried, expressed as a percentage. not decimally). If SI units are used, the following would apply: where T.P.D.= mill capacity (metric tons per day), and C consistency (oven-dried, expressed as a percentage, not decimally). 2. Bulk velocity, V- where Q capacity (U.S GPM). A inside area of pipe (in2). and D = inside diameter of pipe (in). The following would apply if SI units are used: where Q = capacity (m3/s), A = inside area of pipe (mm2), and D = inside diameter of pipe (mm). D = inside diameter of pipe (mm)

11 3. Multiplication Factor, F (.included in Equation 2 ) F=F 1 x F 2 x F 3 x F 4 x F 5, (iv) where F = correction factor for temperature. Friction loss calculations are normally based on a reference pulp temperature of 95 o F (35 o C). The flow resistance may be increased or decreased by 1 percent for each 1.8 o F (1 o C) below or above 95 o F (35 o C), respectively. This may be expressed as follows: F 1 = T, where T = pulp temperature ( o F), or F 1 = T, where T = pulp temperature ( o C). F 2 = correction factor for pipe roughness. This factor may vary due to manufactur-ing processes of the piping, surface roughness, age, etc. Typical values for PVC and stainless steel piping are listed below: F for PVC piping, F for stainless steel piping. Please note that the above are typical values; experience and/or additional data may modify the above factors. F 3 = correction factor for pulp type. Typical values are listed below: F 3 = 1.0 for pulps that have never been dried and reslurried, F 3 = 0.8 for pulps that have been dried and reslurried. Note: This factor has been incorporated in the numerical coefficient, K, for the pulps listed in Table II. When using Table II, F 3 should not be used. F 4 = correction factor for beating. Data have shown that progressive beating causes, initially, a small decrease in friction loss, followed by a substantial increase. For a kraft pine pulp initially at 725CSF and F 4 = 1.0, beating caused the freeness to decrease to 636 CSF and F 4 to decrease to Progressive beating decreased the freeness to 300 CSF and increased F 4 to 1.37 (see K values in Table II). Some engineering judgement may be required. F 5 = design safety factor. This is usually specified by company policy with consideration given to future requirements. APPENDIX E The following are three examples which illustrate the method for determination of pipe friction loss in each of the three regions shown in Figure 3. Example 1. Determine the friction loss (per 100 ft of pipe) for 1000 U.S. GPM of 4.5% oven-dried unbeaten aspen sulfite stock, never dried, in 8 inch schedule 40 stainless steel pipe (pipe inside diameter = in). Assume the pulp temperature to be 95 o F.

12 Solution: a) The bulk velocity, V, is and Q = flow = 1000 U.S. GPM. D = pipe inside diameter in (1000) = 6.41 ft/s. V = b) It must be determined in which region (1, 2, or 3) this velocity falls. Therefore, the next step is to determine the velocity at the upper limit of the linear region, Vmax. Vmax = K' C a, and K' = numerical coefficient = 0.85 (from Appen-dix B, Table I), C = consistency = 4.5%, a = exponent = 1.6 (from Appendix B, Table I). V max = 0.85 ( ) = 9.43 ft/s. c) Since V max exceeds V, the friction loss, Δ H/L, falls within the linear region, Region 1. The friction loss is given by the correlation: Δ H/L=F K V a C b D y [2] and F = correction factor = F 1 F 2 F 3 F 4 F 5, F 1 = correction factor for pulp temperature. Since the pulp temperature is 95 o F, F 1 = 1.0, F 2 = correction factor for pipe roughness. For stain-less steel pipe, F 2 = 1.25 (from Appendix D), F 3 = correction factor for pulp type. Numerical coefficients for this pulp are contained in Appendix C, Table II, and have already incor-porated this factor. F 4 = correction factor for beating. No additional beating has taken place, therefore F 4 = 1.0 (from Appendix D), F 5 = design safety factor. This has been assumed to be unity. F 5 = 1.0. F = (1.0) (1.25) (1.0) (1.0) (1.0) = 1.25, K = numerical coefficient = 5.30 (from Appendix C, Table II),

13 a,b,y=exponents = 0.36,2.14, and -1.04, respectively (from Appendix C, Table II), V, C, D have been evaluated previously. Δ H/L= (1.25) (5.30) ( ) ( ) ( ) = (1.25) (5.30) (1.952) (25.0) (0.1153) =37.28 ft head loss/100 ft of pipe. This is a rather substantial head loss, but may be acceptable for short piping runs. In a large system, the economics of initial piping costs versus power costs should be weighed, however, before using piping which gives a friction loss of this magnitude. Example 2. Determine the friction loss (per 100 ft of pipe) of 2500 U.S. GPM of 3% oven-dried bleached kraft pine, dried and reslurried, in 12 inch schedule 10 stainless steel pipe (pipe inside diameter = in). Stock temperature is 125 o F. Solution: a) V, the bulk velocity, is b) The velocity at the upper limit of the linear region, V max, is V max K' C a and K' = 0.59 (from Appendix B, Table I), = 1.45 (from Appendix B, Table I). V max = 0.59 ( ) = 2.90 ft/s. c) Region 1 (the linear region) has been eliminated, since the bulk velocity, V, exceeds V max. The next step requires calculation of V w. V w = 4.00 C l.40 = 4.00 ( ) = ft/s. d) V exceeds V max, but is less than V w, indicating that it falls in Region 2. The friction loss in this region is calculated by substituting V max into the equation for head loss, Equation 2. Δ H/L=F K (V max ) a C b D y, andf=f 1 F 2 F 3 F 4 F 5 ; (iv) F 1 = T, and T = stock temperature = 1250 F F 1 = (125) = 0.833, F 2 = 1.25 (from Appendix D), F 3 = F 4 = F 5 = 1.0, F = 0.833(1.25) (1.0) = 1.041, K = 8.80 (from Appendix C, Table II), a,b, y= 0.31,1.81, and -1.34, respectively (from Appen-dix C, Table II),

14 V max, C, and D have been defined previously. Δ H/L= 1.041(8.80) ( ) ( ) ( ) = 1.041(8.80) (1.391) (7.304) ( ) = 3.19 ft head loss/100 ft of pipe. Example 3. Determine the friction loss (per 100 ft of pipe) for 2% oven-dried bleached kraft pine, dried and reslurried, through 6 inch schedule 40 stainless steel pipe (inside diameter = in). The pulp temperature is 90 o F; the flow rate 1100 U.S. GPM. Solution: a) The bulk velocity is b) It must be determined in which region (1, 2 or 3) this velocity falls. To obtain an initial indication, determine V max. V max = K' C a, and K' = 0.59 (from Appendix B, Table I), a = 1.45 (from Appendix B, Table I). V max = 0.59( ) = 1.61 ft/sec. c) Since V exceeds V max, Region 1 (the linear region) is eliminated. To determine whether V lies in Region 2 or 3, the velocity at the onset of drag reduction, V w, must be calculated. V w = 4.00 C 1.40, = 4.00 ( ) = ft/sec. d) V exceeds V w, indicating that it falls in Region 3. The friction loss is calculated as that of water flowing at the same velocity (Δ H/L) w = V 1.75 D -1.25, = ( ) ( ) = 4.85 ft head loss/100 ft of pipe. This will be a conservative estimate, as the actual friction loss curve for pulp suspensions under these conditions will be below the water curve.
