Pumpability is the stability and mobility of a mixture under pressure.
The tubing's unreinforced characteristic allows for limited pumpability up to 30 psi back pressure and makes it easier to see process fluids.
They utilize very deep mud beds and steep floors to be able to produce and discharge muds near the limit of pumpability, and operate at very high rates in terms of thickener area.
It is winterized to less than minus 40 degrees in both Celsius and Fahrenheit so that it can be applied during temperature extremes and has pumpability during harsh winter environments without any special handling or containment.
The pumpability of oil is difficult, and it may cause engine damage during start-up.
Not only does this facilitate rapid construction, improving pumpability and workability, it is environmentally friendly and easy to use.
Pumpability and shootability are important functional parameters considered in the design procedure for wet-mix shotcrete (WMS) mixtures [1].
Moreover, the low viscosity of the fluid throughout its operating temperature ensures strong system efficiency and pumpability.
This thermal stability allows much lower bulk viscosity for cold pumpability, providing a lighter material that was produced using less energy.
Implementation of specific devices such as a heater can significantly reduce the problems associated with oil pumpability [2,3].
Three lines indicating the approximate design pumpability, mixability, and sprayability are shown as well.
