Enter the volume of resin settled by gravity (mL) and the percent slurry (%) into the Slurry Volume Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Slurry Volume. 

Slurry Volume Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Slurry Volume. 

SV = Vgs * 100 / %S

  • Where SV is the Slurry Volume (mL)
  • Vgs is the volume of resin settled by gravity (mL) 
  • %S is the percent slurry (%) 

How to Calculate Slurry Volume?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Slurry Volume.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the volume of resin settled by gravity (mL). 
    1. The volume of resin settled by gravity (mL) is given as: 50.
  2. Next, determine the percent slurry (%). 
    1. The percent slurry (%) is provided as: 20.
  3. Finally, calculate the Slurry Volume using the equation above: 

SV = Vgs * 100 / %S

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

SV = 50 * 100 / 20 = 250 (mL)


Example Problem #2: 

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

volume of resin settled by gravity (mL) = 60

percent slurry (%) = 30

Entering these values and solving gives:

SV = 60 * 100 / 30 = 200 (mL)
