Rheology of Ageing of Coal-Oil Suspensions

There are abundant quantities of low grade coal around the world like lignite or Victorian brown coal which could be efficiently utilised for burning in boilers as coal-fuel oil mixture or in the production of liquid fuels. In either of these energy conversion processes one of the important operations is the handling of coaloil slurries. A knowledge of the handling characteristics of these slurries is therefore required in slurry preparation as well as in mixing, bulk tanker transport, pumping through short and long distance pipe lines, heating, cooling, etc.
