Suspensions containing closely sized beads of varying diameters, made from two types of glass, were allowed to flow through 2, 1 and 1/2 inch pipelines. Available slurry flow data in 1/2 inch pipe using glass, steel, and lead particles were combined with these data, resulting in a particle size range of from 31 microns up to 4380 microns. There were 12 particle sizes, and particle densities of 2.3, 3.0, 4.4, 7.5 and 11.3 gm/cc, with the entire data set consisting of 1511 points. From these data points, a slurry flow correlation was developed which predicts the slurry friction factor within an absolute average deviation of 9.5% for the entire data collection, with 74 data points having a deviation exceeding 30% and 9 data points with a deviation greater than 50%. Utilization of the correlation involved recasting of the drag coefficient - Reynold's Number relationship into an empirical expression valid for numbers well within the Stokes flow region, and up to nearly the so-called drag crisis. While most of the data presented were taken in the laboratory, published data from two sources (selected after stringent scrutiny) were used to supplement certain ranges of the Reynold's number.
