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.

1. First, determine the dry solids rate (tons/hour).
2. Next, determine the weight of dry solids (tons).
3. Next, determine the weight of liquid phase (tons).
4. Next, gather the formula from above = SFR = 4*DSR / (WS / (WS+WL)).
5. Finally, calculate the Slurry Flow Rate.
6. 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)) =  ?
