Construction of Ore Slurry Pipeline of Bayan Obo
As the largest ore slurry pipeline system,and the third iron concentrate slurry pipeline interiorly, include the longest water pipeline with only one pump station in China, Bayan Obo slurry pipeline engineering of Baotou has been operated. It can transports 5.5 million tonnes of iron ore concentrate and 2000 million m3/h of water per year. In order to overcome freezing temperature and rugged terrain,many technical problems has been resolved in the period of construction.
