Enter the dry solids rate (tons/hour), the weight of dry solids (tons), and the weight of liquid phase (tons) into the Slurry Flow Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Slurry Flow Rate.

## Slurry Flow Rate Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Slurry Flow Rate.

**SFR = 4*DSR / (WS / (WS+WL))**

Variables:

- SFR is the Slurry Flow Rate (gallons/min)
- DSR is the dry solids rate (tons/hour)
- WS is the weight of dry solids (tons)
- WL is the weight of liquid phase (tons)

## How to Calculate Slurry Flow Rate?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Slurry Flow Rate.

- First, determine the dry solids rate (tons/hour).
- Next, determine the weight of dry solids (tons).
- Next, determine the weight of liquid phase (tons).
- Next, gather the formula from above = SFR = 4*DSR / (WS / (WS+WL)).
- Finally, calculate the Slurry Flow Rate.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem:**

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

dry solids rate (tons/hour) = 4

weight of dry solids (tons) = 3

weight of liquid phase (tons) = 5

SFR = 4*DSR / (WS / (WS+WL)) =** ** ?
