3-day Training Course on

SLURRY HANDLING AND M IXING IN THE N UCLEAR INDUSTRY
Art W Etchells, Neil J Alderman and Nigel I Heywood

January 20–22, 2009

BHRG roup
The Fluid Engineering Centre

to be held at Hilton Garden Inn Kennewick, Washington State, USA

Course Description
This intensive 3-day course covers many aspects of the mobilisation and retrieval of various slurry and sludge types, including nuclear waste sludges. It is delivered by three lecturers who have extensive experience in system design for sludge mobilisation, mixing, pumping and pipelining. Topics covered include the measurement of slurry physical properties, and the application of data to pipeline design, valve specification, pump selection and sizing. The course will also cover a variety of mixing requirements including mixing non-Newtonian slurries (the cavern approach) and mixing settling slurries (minimum agitator speed to suspend and distribution). In addition, wear in sludge systems will be covered, together with on-line slurry instrumentation. Considerations specifically of concern in the nuclear industry will be addressed, including the use of equipment in remote operations, the lack of availability of reliable, up-to-date, or indeed any sludge physical property data, and the mixing and transport of solids having specific gravities up to 19.

Lecturers
Dr Nigel I Heywood is a chartered Chemical Engineer and Fellow of the UK’s Institution of Chemical Engineers. He graduated in Chemical Engineering from Imperial College, London, and researched the effects of air injection into slurry pipe at the University of Wales. He continued research into multiphase pipeflow at the University of Toronto, Canada, and then worked at Warren Spring Laboratory, AEA Technology and Aspen Technology. At BHR Group, he provides consultancy, research and training courses on a wide range of topics, including running courses on nuclear sludge handling for the US DOE and the Savannah River Site. Dr Heywood has extensive consultancy experience in handling nuclear waste sludges in the UK. Dr Neil J Alderman obtained his PhD in Chemical Engineering in 1986 and then worked for Schlumberger Cambridge Research Ltd. He has worked at Warren Spring Laboratory, AEA Technology and Aspen Technology. At BHR Group, he provides pilot-plant and labbased consultancy and research services, focussing on the rheology of slurries and sludges, including nuclear waste. He lectures on rheology, slurry handling and on-line instrumentation, and has published over 100 papers and reports. Dr Arthur Etchells was a Dupont Fellow in Dupont Engineering Technology, part of the Dupont Company. In his 39 years with Dupont his Chemical Engineering expertise, particularly in mixing and fluid flow, has resulted in significant improvements to many manufacturing businesses. He was involved with many designs at Savannah River including DWPF. He received the Lavoisier Award Medal of Achievement, the Dupont Company’s highest award for scientific and technical achievement. Dr Etchells retired in 2002 and continues with his extensive consultancy work, which includes regular visits to Hanford. Dr Etchells is a founding member and former president of the North American Mixing Forum, an affiliate of AIChE.
