Clogging Mechanism of Muddy Water Delivery Pipe and Technology of Anti-Clogging


Article Preview

Muddy river is the water source for most northern channel irrigation districts in China. Pipe clogging is the main problem to limit development of pipeline delivery irrigation technology in this area. The key to solve the problem is to determine the critical non-deposit flow velocity and the corresponding technologic measures. Based on part achievements of national “863” project, characteristic and operation of northern irrigation district , this paper analyzed the pipe clogging mechanism caused by muddy water and put forward a set of efficient pipe anti-clogging measures, which are confirmed to be practical through the application in a project.
