This paper describes our laboratory study of the flow behavior of aqueous hemalite slurries. Viscosity and flow data are given for slurries of up to 40 percent hematite by volume (76 percent by weight). These results show that solids concentration and particle size distribution have much more effect on flow than does temperature. These and supporting laboratory data are discussed in terms of practical problems in pipelining slurries.
