The Influence of Viscosity on Equipment & Piping Design

Ingredient viscosity is a property that greatly influences equipment design and piping layouts. During the design process, it is important to understand the extent of viscosity changes with temperature, and the impact of the corresponding pressure drop on pipe design and the selection of the process pump. In the most recent issue of Hixson’s From Experience newsletter, we look at how product reformulations and plant layout changes can result in lower production rates, higher product quality issues, and occasionally pump failures.
