In the present paper, pressure drop and deposition velocity characteristics of narrow sized silica sand slurry and bi-modal slurry consisting of narrow sized silica sand and fly ash as fine particles in different proportions keeping the overall efflux concentration same have been analyzed experimentally. The pressure drop measurements are done over a length of 4.0 m in 50 mm NB diameter pipe line under fully developed flow conditions using a pilot plant test loop. The pressure drop measurements for bi-model slurry at efflux concentration of 33.9% (by weight).shows that the pressure drop reduces at higher rate for low velocity region as compared to high velocity region with addition of the fine particles. The bi-model slurry shows slight reduction in deposition velocity with increase in percentage of fines
